Jason Williams is scheduled to work out for the New York Knicks today at the Westchester practice facility.

The 33-year-old retired last August, citing personal reasons with his wife’s pregnancy. Flirting with Williams could be a negotiating tool for the Knicks, in signing G Nate Robinson for a year.

The Knicks also plan to sign the 23-year-old Ramon Sessions to an offer sheet.

The Knicks could offer Williams the veteran’s minimum ($1.9 million) or biannual exception ($2.9 million). "J-Will" has had a productive 10-year NBA career in which he has averaged 11.7 points, 6.3 assists, and 1.7 three pointer’s per game.

New York has until Thursday to negotiate a deal with him, since they claimed him off waivers from the L.A. Clippers.

A rumor has also been swirling that if Donnie Walsh comes to an agreement with "White Chocolate," the Knicks would then deal his rights to another team.
