Mark Bartelstein Rumors

The Knicks also were trying to find a way to retain center Jason Smith and combo guard Alexey Shved, but that may not be possible if they get offers higher than $2.8 million. Jackson plans to re-sign Lou Amundson and Lance Thomas for the vet’s minimum. Mark Bartelstein, agent for Smith and Amundson, said the Knicks have kept “closely connected’’ on both issues.
