"I’m not going to lie, that’s where I want to be," said Williams, who averaged seven points and nearly four rebounds off the bench last season. "I’ve never been with a team [for] two years."
"I feel like I’m acquainted with coach [Mike] D'Antoni and the staff ... and we’ve got great fans, so that’s a place I want to play," he added.
He said in the interview that he'll listen to "all comers."
"'I'm not going to say I'm one of the Paul Pierces or the Chris Pauls of the league and I can pick where I want to go," said Williams. "As a free agent, I’m going to entertain who ever offers. But hopefully I'll be with the Knicks. If it don’t work, out I had fun with the Knicks and it was a great season with them last year."
On Saturday, D'Antoni said he'd like to see Williams return to the Knicks.
"I know that he’s got some interest elsewhere and he’s looking, which he should," D'Antoni said. "Right now, he's taking care of the business end and hopefully it works out and come back to us. But we’ll just see how it shakes out."
