New York - Cole Aldrich and Toure Murry: Murry has shown flashes in limited minutes, particularly defensively, and merits a longer stay. Aldrich meanwhile has had scant little opportunity on the court, but at least theoretically provides the interior defense and rebounding the Knicks sorely lack outside of Tyson Chandler, which works in his favor. Note that recent signee Jeremy Tyler's contract status is hitherto unknown. The Score

Tyler was cut in training camp because he was still rehabbing and owner James Dolan wanted to keep J.R. Smith’s brother, Chris Smith, as the 15th man in a highly controversial move that triggered the NBA to hold internal talks about the issue. The question will be whether the Knicks will cut Smith, who is also playing for Erie, guard Tour’e Murry, who is on the roster but almost never plays, or center Cole Aldrich, who has seen almost zero action despite Tyson Chandler’s injury.

Diogu and Josh Powell are with Aldrich, in play for one of the big man spots. But Diogu and the physical Powell are power forwards and not centers. Powell, a veteran with an NBA body, might be more effective than one of the younger guys who haven’t shown that much. But Woodson said the Knicks haven’t figured out if they will keep one or two big men. “We haven’t addressed that yet,” Woodson said. “I know one has an opportunity to make it. There won’t be any decisions made soon because we’re still banged up with Kenyon and Amar’e. Those guys will get an opportunity and a fair shot to ride it all the way through pretty much. Then we’ll make a decision Newsday

The Knicks announced Tuesday they have added another big man to the training-camp roster in 6-foot-11 center Cole Aldrich, the former Kansas star drafted 11th in 2010. He’s been signed to a non-guaranteed contract. Aldrich, considered a draft bust, has played 89 games in three seasons with Oklahoma City, Houston and Sacramento. Last season, he averaged 2.2 points and 2.7 rebounds in 8.6 minutes over 45 games, split between the Rockets and Kings. New York Post
