With the Knicks signing F Mario Hezonja on Sunday, it seems the return of F Michael Beasley isn't in play any longer.
For one, Hezonja's $6.5 million came out of the Knicks' $8.6 million mid-level exception. To get Beasley back, it was expected the Knicks would have to cough up the entire mid-level exception.
Instead, they get Hezonja -- a forward that has the ability to play both the 3 and 4 on the floor. But can Hezonja's versatilty make him a viable replacment to Beasley, who was a critical piece of the Knicks a season ago?
