New York Knicks: Point Guard Crazy

The New York Knicks are obviously not satisfied with just having Chris Duhon as their only steady point guard on the roster.

Duhon played very well in his first season in New York, but down the stretch, fatigue caught up to him and he was not the same player he was in the start of the season.

In this year's draft, the Knicks used their second first round pick, which they received from the Los Angeles Lakers, on Florida State guard Toney Douglas. Douglas can play the point guard, as well as the shooting guard position, and can do many great things with the ball, as well as on the defensive end.

The Nate Robinson talks around the league, and overseas, have died down, and it seems as though he may be coming back to the Knicks for at least one more season.

Yet, Donnie Walsh and head coach Mike D'Antoni are not ready to just enter battle with just these players on the roster.

New York has had serious talks with two candidates, and they would be Ramon Sessions and Jason Williams.

Sessions, who had a breakout year last season with the Bucks, averaging 12.4 points and 5.7 assists per game, could be the point guard of the future for the Knicks. He is young and athletic, and would really excel in the D'Antoni style of offense.

If New York does sign Sessions, it would be to a long term deal and that would truly solidify him as a Knick for a long time to come.

Williams is a different story because he has just come out of retirement and worked out with the Knicks this week.

He was claimed first by the Knicks, which means New York has the first shot at signing him. If Walsh and D'Antoni do decide on Williams, it would probably only be a one year deal.

Sessions may be the smarter choice for the Knicks, but Williams may be the cheaper choice, and all Walsh wants to do is make sure is team is under the salary cap for the 2010 season.

The Knicks have solid depth at the point guard position with Duhon, Douglas, and possibly Robinson, and the addition of either Sessions or Williams will make the team even better.
