Regarding why he chose to sign with the Knicks:
You look at their roster, you've got some great pieces. With the intention of signing Lin back, I saw that I can help. Hopefully (I can) help them win and help Lin. He's a talented point guard, so at this stage of my career I just felt that I could help those guys win.On what he expects his role to be with the team:
I'm not 25 years old and I don't need the fireworks when my name is called (for) the starting lineup. I just want to be in there at the end of the game to try to help the team win. ... The last six minutes of an NBA game is where you make your name, so hopefully I'm in there trying to help my guys win.That last-six-minute rotation might be a tough one to crack, no?
Though the team doesn't exactly have a plethora of shooting guards at the moment, so who knows what our down-the-stretch lineup will look like in 5 months...
