As the Knicks fill their roster with returning players and a new PF in Andrea Bargnani, some holes still appear. With not much left in the bank, the New York Knicks need to add a PG, PF/C and a SF. Small forward, which was occupied by Steve Novak and Chris Copeland this past season, is about to go through another transformation. Steve Novak has been traded in the Bargnani deal, and fan favorite Chris Copeland might be leaving for greener pastures and larger amounts of “coin”.
Who is out there at small forward? With the likes of players like Matt Barnes, Francisco Garcia and Shawne Williams, one player comes to mind: Carlos Delfino.
Stats: 10.6 ppg, 37.5 3P% Savvy veteran that likes to shoot the three and handles the ball well. Can’t keep up with other players at the wing position in terms of athleticism.
Carlos is a native of Argentina, he stands at 6’6” 230 pounds and has been in the league for 7 years. Carlos is a decent defender, can hit the open three and is an all around NBA player with solid passing skills. His biggest asset is his “butter like” shooting stroke, and his passion for the game. With the chance to play along his fellow countryman, Pablo Prigioni, the New York Knicks have a real shot to sign the SF/SG for the veterans minimum.
