NBA Free Agency Rumors 2012: Randy Foye Interested In New York Knicks

Unrestricted free agent guard Randy Foye is interested in joining the New York Knicks, according to an ESPN New York report.

The Knicks are likely to have just the mini mid-level exception (starting at $3 million per season) to spend, and Foye, a Newark native, would fit into that price range.

"He will have multiple offers at that amount and more annually," the source told ESPN New York. "New York would a great fit for both [playing and financial reasons]."

Foye, a 28-year old combo guard, averaged 11.0 points on 39.8 percent shooting for the Los Angeles Clippers last season. He became the team's starter at shooting guard when Chauncey Billups was injured early in the season.

According to ESPN New York, Foye made more three-pointers over the second half of the season (87) than anyone else in the NBA. During the second half, he shot 41.4 percent from the three-point arc, finishing at 38.6 percent from downtown for the season.

The Knicks are reportedly very interested in adding a shooting guard this summer, with other targets including Ray Allen, Jason Terry and O.J. Mayo.
