Dwane has been raving about Jamaal Magloire with respect to practice habits, teaching ability and leadership and I know they expect the same thing from Anthony Carter, who I’m told is a consummate pro who is familiar with Casey from the time they spent together in Minnesota and who can be an extension of a coach in the locker room and on the bench.

Point guard Anthony Carter is a free agent and intrigued the coaching staff. They could buy out Renaldo Balkman's final two years. The oft-injured Ronny Turiaf has a player option of $4.3 million that he's likely to exercise, but the Knicks also could buy him out. Rookie point guard Andy Rautins also may be released to open a roster spot. New York Post

The Knicks lost, 101-89, Sunday and were swept from the Eastern Conference playoffs. But they did not go down without a fight, and Carter was the main reason why. Carter helped slow down Rajon Rondo and sparked a dramatic second-half comeback that fell short. "I was just sick and tired of seeing (Rondo) walk the ball up the court and come down and shoot all series," Carter said. "That was my whole mind-set when I went into the game, try and turn it up and make him do something different than he had done all series." New York Daily News

For the third consecutive offseason, Anthony Carter signed a one-year, league-minimum deal with the Nuggets, doing so Wednesday with power forward Shelden Williams, who comes to Denver by way of Boston. The 6-foot-9, 250-pound Williams, who played sparingly for the Eastern Conference champion Celtics, will make $915,852, as set by the minimum contract pay scale. Carter, who backed up Chauncey Billups and Ty Lawson last season, will make $1.352 million. Denver Post

"Denver is a great fit for Shelden because they need frontcourt help," said Williams' agent, Lee Melchionni. "He provides an element of toughness, rebounding and intangibles. . . . And being able to play in the playoffs is an experience that you take with you to any team that you go to." Denver Post

The Nuggets bolstered their front court Wednesday by agreeing to terms with Al Harrington and Shelden Williams, while also bringing back one of their own free agents, guard Anthony Carter, people with knowledge of the deals confirmed to CBSSports.com. In giving the full mid-level exception to Harrington -- five years, $34 million -- the Nuggets are now out of the running to match the Raptors' four-year. $18.8 million offer sheet for restricted free agent Linas Kleiza. Harrington, 29, is a good teammate and proven scorer whose presence will help the Nuggets survive the absence of injured big men Kenyon Martin and Chris "Birdman" Andersen at the start of the 2010-11 season. But Harrington's erratic, often puzzling offensive play could present a problem for a Denver team that already has its share of free spirits. CBSSports.com
