That's not good news for Iverson, who said on Wednesday, "I want to play basketball so bad." The Knicks have been devastated at the guard position. Baron Davis won't be back for the 2012-13 season or maybe ever after he tore the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his right knee in Game 4 of the Knicks' playoff series with Miami. If you have a weak stomach, do not check out the video of the injury. Davis is expected to be out a minimum of 12 months. And rookie point guard Iman Shumpert also tore his ACL during the Miami series and is expected to miss at least 8 months. Add that to the fact that Jeremy Lin is a restricted free agent and sharpshooter Steve Novak is an unrestricted free agent, and it's easy to seen why the Knicks would even consider Iverson.
The Knicks, according to the Post, may have only the $2 million lower exception to lure another free-agent point guard, with Portland's Raymond Felton, Oklahoma City's Derek Fisher and San Antonio's Gary Neal possible targets in that category.
