The Return of Shawne Williams?

“According to his agent, Happy Walters, Williams will work out for the Knicks in the coming days, and a source said the workout will be Monday. The Knicks are trying to add more scoring pop to the roster at the small-forward position now that Carmelo Anthony is viewed as their power forward.

Williams, despite baggage that included multiple arrests on drug charges, prospered at the Garden in his lone season in 2010-11, when he was a threat as a 3-point shooter and an excellent defender. He likely will be available for the veteran minimum of $1.4 million.”

Williams was the perfect Mike D’Antoni stretch 4 and smartly cashed on on a contract with a guaranteed extra year than what the Knicks offered. This makes sense if Williams can prove his off court issues are a thing of the past and he’s back in basketball shape.
