The Knicks are looking to add more two-way players like Courtney Lee in free agency this summer, as the team has shown preliminary interest in players such as P.J. Tucker and Dante Cunningham, according to Ian Begley of ESPN.
Jeff Hornacek coached Tucker in Phoenix and praised the veteran forward for his leadership in the locker room and his intensity on defense. The 32-year old also shot 35.7 percent from the three-point line last season, including a 40 percent clip once he was traded to the Raptors.
Cunningham has developed a nice shot from long range, leading the Pelicans in 3-point field goal percentage last season at 39.2 percent. The 30-year old proved to be quite valuable to New Orleans this past season as the team went 13-8 when Cunningham played at least 28 minutes. To put those numbers in perspective, that winning percentage would have ranked among the top-10 in the league.
