Hoops season is less than a month from tipping off, and the New York Knicks have been absolutely dominating the headlines with their bevy of offseason moves and signings.

The best part is that they aren’t done yet and still have at least two roster spots to decide on before the 2012-13 campaign begins.

Keep reading to find out whom that invite might be going to and the latest buzz surrounding the Knicks’ training camp.

Knicks Sign ‘Sheed, Not Guaranteed

After months of rumors, the New York finally made its Rasheed Wallace signing official.

He’s the latest—and hopefully final—of the aging big men that the organization has been adding to its roster this summer, which now includes 38-year-old Marcus Camby, 40-year-old Kurt Thomas and 38-year-old ‘Sheed at the backup PF and C spots.

However, there is a chance that the four-time All-Star doesn’t make the final cut, as Jared Zwerling of ESPN New York points out that Wallace’s contract is not guaranteed.

It would be ridiculous for the Knicks to have coaxed the old man from retirement after not having played a game since the 2010 NBA Finals just to cut him, but if it’s for the good of the team then it’s a smart move.

Howard Still on New York’s Radar

Should the Knicks invite Josh Howard to training camp?

While, Dwight Howard is unfortunately nothing more than a pipe dream for fans in the Big Apple, there is another Howard that is a feasible acquisition for N.Y.

Josh Howard, an All-Star back in 2007, is apparently hoping to get invited to the Knicks training camp and eventually earn one of the last spots on the final roster.

ESPN’s Zwerling reported that the team would need to cut one of the training invitees in order to facilitate Howard’s arrival.

Considering that the 32-year-old averaged 8.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game with the Utah Jazz last year, there might still be something left in the tank and it could be worth it to give him a shot.

Brewer on the Comeback Trail

He promptly suffered an injury and underwent arthroscopic knee surgery, and it was unknown when he was going to return and become an important bench contributor for the team.

According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, that date could be an early as the season opener—Nov. 1 against the Brooklyn Nets.

The 6’7” swingman is known as an elite perimeter defender and a decent scorer, traits that will make him an asset as soon as he suits up for the Knicks.
