In 2010-11, the New York Knicks project to start Wilson Chandler , Bill Walker, or Kelenna Azubuike at shooting guard. However, Chandler and Walker are natural small forwards, and Azubuike, a wing, is better suited coming off the bench (especially after an injury-plagued 2009-10 campaign).
Due to this hole at shooting guard, the Knicks recently offered Shannon Brown a one year, $2.7 million contract.
However, on Tuesday, August 4, Brown's agent announced to the New York Post that he would likely be re-signing with the LA Lakers.
Upon receiving this news, the Knicks' brass must now consider an alternative solution to their two-guard problem.
Nevertheless, when taking their other options into account, NY will still be seeking to retain financial flexibility for next summer, when Carmelo Anthony will likely become a free agent (since he has not accepted the Nuggets' contract extension).
So keeping that in mind, here are five SGs the Knicks should pursue, now that Brown will be staying put.
