Howard Still in the Mix?

“Now that Rasheed Wallace is in the house, continuing the Knicks’ trend of adding players over 30, it only begs the question: Are they still looking to increase their average age?

According to a source close to free agent Josh Howard, the Knicks are still interested in the 32-year-old swingman and have had recent conversations with his representatives.

The Knicks first inquired about Howard last month, but if they’re serious about adding him now, they’ll have to cut one of their players with a non-guaranteed contract, which applies to training camp only. Currently, the Knicks have 20 training camp invites (including Wallace), which is the maximum amount allowed per team.”

I thought Howard made more sense to begin with as it looks like they will see if Wallace can make the squad. If Howard’s knee is near 100% I think he can contribute a lot as the team’s second SF. And as we’ve said the Knicks are looking to add depth at the wing spot. But if they sign Howard, where would that leave Steve Novak?
