The Knicks are also after Baron Davis and, reportedly, Bostjan Nachbar.
Mike D'Antoni said on Friday that the Knicks would prefer to acquire a forward over a shooting guard, such as Michael Redd. So Posey may be a priority. The Knicks lost out of forward Shawne Williams. The 3-point specialist signed with the Nets last week..
Posey turns 35 next month and his 3-point shooting and defense took a step backward last season, when he shot just 31 percent from beyond the arc last season. But he would bring a veteran defensive presence and strong rebounding to the Knicks' second unit. And, if he can improve his outside shot, he'd likely get plenty of open looks under D'Antoni's system.
