The Knicks have made signing a big man (possibly Detroit’s Greg Monroe) a priority in free agency this summer. However, they will still have an issue to work out in their backcourt — they would like to be rid of Jose Calderon, and will give Langston Galloway, one of the few bright spots on the team last year, a chance to earn more playing time going forward. One potential answer for their guard woes: Rockets free agent Patrick Beverley. A source told Sporting News at the opening of free agency that the Knicks have “major interest” in Beverley, and that the interest is mutual. The Knicks contacted Beverley shortly after free agency began.: 7 more rumors

Before then, the Rockets will move to free agency. Morey described the plan to sign his own free agents – Pat Beverley, Josh Smith, KJ McDaniels, Jason Terry and Corey Brewer – as “most likely” unchanged, though he could kick the tires on much larger, roster-changing moves. “I think there’s possible opportunities we have to explore that are bigger, but I think they’re unlikely,” Morey said. “It’s probably likely we’ll stay over the cap and use our mid-level.”
Like Parsons last summer, Beverley will be a restricted free agent, giving the Rockets the opportunity to match any contract offer sheet he signs. But Beverley said he hopes to be back with the Rockets. “This is the only team in the league — I am very loyal — only team in the league that really took a chance on me,” Beverley said. “At the end of the day, I understand it’s a business.”
With Pat Beverley heading into free agency, the Rockets point guard said he is already seeing the renowned recruiting talents of former teammate Chandler Parsons first hand. “I hear from Chandler every day,” Beverley said. “It’s hard, but I try not to think about it. I can’t talk about contracts. It’s going to be a fun summer. I have put myself in a position to be set for life and that’s something that I never thought was possible growing up.”
Beverley still has a pin in his hand from surgery to repair a torn ligament, and the reaction times necessary to catch, pass and dribble are nowhere near the level needed for him to return in the near future, sources said. Beverley had surgery March 31, and the plan has been for him to take four months for a full recovery.
After trying a second time on the eve of Game 1, Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley couldn’t find the strength and mobility in his left wrist to believe there exists a chance that he can return in the Western Conference finals, league sources told Yahoo Sports. “It’s a no-go for the series,” a league source told Yahoo Sports on Tuesday. “He’s done trying.” Beverley worked out twice Monday in the Bay Area, but a second trip to the gym Monday night convinced him to abandon hope for this series, which begins Tuesday night.
The Houston Rockets are operating under the premise that perimeter defensive ace Patrick Beverley, out since March with a torn ligament in his left wrist, is unlikely to play in the forthcoming Western Conference finals, according to league sources. Beverley is scheduled to have his cast removed in coming days and says he’s hopeful of being cleared to play, but sources told ESPN.com that the Rockets are pessimistic about Beverley healing sufficiently quickly to return in this round against the 67-win Golden State Warriors.
Beverley has a strong desire to return to the Rockets’ lineup against the Golden State Warriors, and will test his left wrist in ball handling drills on Monday night, a step toward determining his status, a source said. If Beverley returns, he would need to find a brace capable of protecting his wrist and allowing him to use his pain tolerance.
