While Copeland continues to be discussed, the Knicks also have another idea in mind for that $1.7 million: Signing a small forward who could start alongside Carmelo Anthony at the 4. And, no, Ronnie Brewer isn't coming back. A league source told ESPNNewYork.com that the Knicks are "looking for a 3 who can shoot the 3 and is a good defender on the wing." A few small forwards the Knicks have expressed interest in, who could be in their financial ballpark, are Carlos Delfino, Franciso Garcia and Dahntay Jones. ESPN.com

Atlanta Hawks player Dahntay Jones says he feels REALLLY bad about injuring Kobe Bryant's ankle right before the NBA playoffs ... but he's adamant, he didn't do it on purpose! Jones was at LAX yesterday when he told TMZ ... even though it's only been 2 months since the controversial play, he doesn't hold a grudge against people like Ice Cube -- who called him a dirty cheater days after the play. In case you forgot, Lakers fans were calling for Dahntay's head after Kobe landed on DJ's ankle during a jump shot on March 13 -- with people saying Dahntay put his foot in Kobe's jump zone with the intention of injuring the NBA star. "I apologize once again," DJ told us ... "I wish you a speedy recovery, Kobe." TMZ.com

Kobe Bryant is right ... Atlanta Hawks player Dahntay Jones is a dirty cheater who knew what he was doing when he hurt the Black Mamba on the court last week ... at least according to Lakers superfan Ice Cube. Cube -- decked out in Lakers gear -- was at LAX this weekend when we asked the rap legend about Kobe's claim that Jones cheap-shotted him during a fadeaway jumper last week ... causing Bryant to injure his ankle. "It's kinda whack when you gotta cheat to win," Cube said ... saying, "But [Kobe's] a champ, he'll come back. That ankle will be strong." TMZ.com

Dahntay Jones joined The Dan Patrick Show to talk about his play at the end of the Hawks-Lakers game that injured Kobe Bryant, what the etiquette is for a defender when an offensive player takes a jumper, what he makes of the NBA saying they would have called a foul during that play, his history with Kobe Bryant, whether he has tried to reach out to Bryant since the incident, and whether he is surprised by the amount of attention the play has received. His take on the play that injured Kobe Bryant: “It’s the same take as it was after the game. I just tried to make the best basketball play possible. At that point in time, my role was to try to get a stop for our team and I just tried to get close enough to contest the shot and try to make him see a body instead of having a wide open look at the basket.” Sports Radio Interviews
