Source: Foster Leaning Towards "Hometown Discount"

A source familiar with the situation has told TKB that Pacers center Jeff Foster, who the Knicks reportedly have had interest in, is leaning towards remaining in Indiana.

“He has interest in NY but his preference is Indiana,” the source said.

TKB has also learned the Pacers stepped up their efforts in hopes of keeping Foster considering they don’t want to lose him to the Knicks. That said, they aren’t going to offer more than a 2 year deal and may not offer as much as the Knicks, who are considering the full mid-level.

The Lakers are also interested.
