Unfortunately, at the moment there isn’t much wiggle room for Phil Jackson to work with in terms of adding worthwhile pieces for the upcoming season.
Not that Jackson was necessarily looking in his direction, but U.S. Men’s National Team goalkeeper Tim Howard seems interested in taking up a piece of that available cap space, according to this tweet he posted on Thursday.

Based on his heroics in the recent World Cup, Howard’s value likely will never be higher so it may take a max deal to bring the 35-year-old on board, which means Phil Jackson has a while to ponder the possible addition. Given the loss of Tyson Chandler, the Knicks will need defensive help. If Howard can protect the Knicks’ basket like he did the United States’ goal, it might be worth it.
Just a thought.
