According to the coaches, Thomas is their most talkative guy on defense, is the best at getting back in transition, can guard 1-to-5 and is often put on the opponent’s best player for a spot. It doesn’t hurt he’s a former teammate of free-agent-to-be Kevin Durant. “What I bring is pretty unique,’’ Thomas said. “I do all the dirty work most guys don’t like to do. I do it. I embrace it. There’s a job for people like that in the league.’’
The Knicks also were trying to find a way to retain center Jason Smith and combo guard Alexey Shved, but that may not be possible if they get offers higher than $2.8 million. Jackson plans to re-sign Lou Amundson and Lance Thomas for the vet’s minimum. Mark Bartelstein, agent for Smith and Amundson, said the Knicks have kept “closely connected’’ on both issues. But the stars — and even budding stars — are gone.
