Jared Jeffries Officially Returns To Knicks

As has been expected for several days, the New York Knicks have brought back forward Jared Jeffries, a 6-foot-11, 240-pound player who was with the Knicks for three seasons prior to going to Houston.

The Rockets recently bought out Jeffries, a favorite of Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni for his defensive ability. The Knicks could be expected to use Jeffries to guard a variety of players, from big to small.

Since trading for Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups the Knicks have been concerned about their interior defense. Jeffries should help with that.
