"According to his agent, Happy Walters, Williams will work out for the Knicks in the coming days, and a source said the workout will be Monday. The Knicks are trying to add more scoring pop to the roster at the small-forward position now that Carmelo Anthony is viewed as their power forward.Williams was the perfect Mike D'Antoni stretch 4 and smartly cashed on on a contract with a guaranteed extra year than what the Knicks offered. This makes sense if Williams can prove his off court issues are a thing of the past and he's back in basketball shape.
Williams, despite baggage that included multiple arrests on drug charges, prospered at the Garden in his lone season in 2010-11, when he was a threat as a 3-point shooter and an excellent defender. He likely will be available for the veteran minimum of $1.4 million."
