The Knicks are hampered during upcoming free agency because they are only willing to hand out one-year deals to protect 2012 cap space for the free-agent bonanza. Signing a player who gets through the new amnesty process may be an alternate solution.We mentioned Haywood yesterday. It's hard to speculate until the players get released then the frenzy begins. But what is absolutely 100% clear, and I've talked to several key people about this, the Knicks will NOT add salary past this year as they prepare to try and land Chris Paul or another big free agent.?
Two names who have popped onto the Knicks? radar as potential amnesty casualties are Warriors 7-foot defensive center?Andris Biedrins?and Heat small-forward sharpshooter Mike Miller, whom the Knicks coveted during free agency in 2010.
