Knicks Top MLE Priority Jeff Foster?
Pacers rugged free agent defensive center Jeff Foster has become the Knicks’ top priority with their $5 million mid-level exception, and former team president Donnie Walsh can earn his consulting fee if he can convince Foster to leave Indiana.
According to league sources, Walsh, who drafted Foster in 1999 for the Pacers when he traded for his rights, has pushed for the Knicks to sign the center, who has 5,206 career rebounds.
Today, team executives are permitted to talk to free agents and make recruiting visits. Walsh still lives in Indianapolis as a Knicks consultant and will attempt to sell the merits of playing in New York.
