Free-agent center Hamed Haddadi, who worked out for the Knicks on Aug. 16, might not be done with the team yet. A source close to the player says it is “still possible” that Haddadi signs with New York.
Several sources have told ESPNNewYork.com in the past two weeks that the Knicks are focused on adding a big man before training camp starts in early October. The Knicks could really use another rebounder and shot-blocker, especially against bigger-sized teams like the Nets and Pacers, who both upgraded their frontcourt this offseason.
“He won’t wow you with his athleticism, but he’s a high-volume energy guy and has good skills to be a good, solid defensive backup,” the source said, who also noted that Haddadi is open to a veteran’s minimum deal.
