Howard Beck: David Lee has one year left on deal, so no long-term cap issues for team acquiring him. Still a very effective scorer/rebounder/passer. I do know that Knicks have had discussions about reacquiring Lee. But they had to explore all FA options first. It’s a possibility. David Lee remains very popular with Knicks fans. Many didn’t want to see him go back in 2010, when they signed Amare. Would be good PR, too. To those asking: Teams w/cap room wouldn’t have to give up much to get Lee from GSW. They want to shed his salary, minimize tax hit.
