The NBA Lockout is history, the season begins on Christmas Day and NBA Free Agency begins Dec. 9. The free agency rumor mill is already in high gear, and lots of names have already surfaced in connection with the New York Knicks.
There have, of course, already been the Chris Paul to the Knicks stories. That, of course, is a story that will continue to be front and center all season long. There are plenty of other possibilities floating around out there as we transition from talking about legal mumbo jumbo to discussing how the Knicks will shape their roster around Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire.
Looking to add some firepower or a backup point guard behind the veteran (as in old guy) Chauncey Billups? How about a possible reunion with Jamal Crawford or the addition of Sebastian Telfair?
Then there is the small matter of figuring out what to do with the half-dozen current Knicks who will hit the free-agent market themselves in a few days.
Here is a list of all the players who could be available when free agency begins.
