5 Free Agents New York Knicks Should Sign to Improve Their Defense

I think it was pretty obvious that the Knicks' biggest weakness last season was their defense. It’s pretty hard to have a good record when you are letting up 105.7 points per game and teams are shooting over 47-percent from the field against you. 

The Knicks have plenty of scoring on their roster, so I think they should focus on finding defensive specialists in free agency. In the draft the Knicks took a great defensive guard Iman Shumpert, so they can now focus on picking up a forward or center.

I personally feel the Knicks are at their best when Amar’e is playing power forward, so I would like to see them go after a defensive-minded center first.

The other option would be to play Carmelo at the power forward and find a great perimeter defender to play alongside him.  

Here are five free agents who I think would help the Knicks defensively if they signed them.
