As the NBA begins its lockout era, the last thing on some of our minds may be free agency rumors.
While it may difficult to focus on free agency with the lockout looming over our heads, the reality of it is potential additions and improvements still need to be a focus.
The Knicks may be forbidden to address current players and potential players, but you better believe the entire organization is focusing, albeit secretly, on how to fill some gaping holes.
New York, for years, has been looking to fill a hole in the low post, and entering into the offseason, finding a capable big man was high on their to-do list. However, given their goal of having enough cap space to sign either Chris Paul, Deron Williams or Dwight Howard in 2012, limits their options in that department.
A name that has been thrown around quite a bit recently is former Knick Kurt Thomas.
Thomas spent this past season with the Bulls and is a free agent, should this lockout ever end, and has indicated he would like to play at least one more year.
Is Thomas the answer for the Knicks at center?
Let's find out.
