With Steve Nash off the market and Jeremy Lin being seriously courted by the Houston Rockets, the Knicks are left with some slim pickings and not a ton of money to sign some worthy free agents. Today, they brought back a blast from the past; James White.
The only way I could refresh James White into your memory is with this dunk highlights reel featuring fellow 2nd chance NBA-recruit , Gerald Green.
To be fair, I’ve been facebook friends with James for a year and I’ve seen his career growth while he’s been playing in Italy. I know his game has improved significantly from where it was 3-4 years ago. Out of the few professional teams that White did work out for, the Knicks decided to offer him a 1 year veteran-level deal. At 6’7 and 200 lbs, White will provide a nice boost off the bench. Lord knows we desperately need a spark in second halves.
