According to a person familiar with the club’s thought process, the available players, including point guard Tony Wroten, wouldn’t crack the rotation, so a 10-day contract would be wasteful. If a rotation player sustained a serious injury, then the club would act — possibly on Wroten or Jimmer Fredette — pending the position of need. If Lance Thomas’ left-knee injury were deemed more serious, the Knicks probably would have signed somebody.
Storyline: Jimmer Fredette Call-Up?
As the season propels through the all-star break and play plods on into spring, NBA teams will need help due to injuries or ineffective players. Needs evolve. When that time comes, Fredette hopes his name is called. “Hopefully, I’ve been able to turn some heads and show people what I can do,” said Fredette. “I haven’t played a lot of minutes the last four years and people may have forgotten what I can do. I’m a competitive person. That’s a big thing for me is to show I can compete on both ends, both offense and defense, and I’ll do whatever it takes to help a team win, whether it be shooting and scoring, defending, rebounding, whatever it is.
The Knicks still have an open roster spot and a player in Cleanthony Early (gunshot wound) out indefinitely, but haven’t signed anyone to a 10-day contract, which were allowed beginning Tuesday. Sunday is another important day as players with non-guaranteed deals could be waived before the money becomes fully guaranteed. The Knicks also are looking at the D-League showcase in Santa Cruz, Calif., where Jimmer Fredette and the Westchester Knicks are competing.
