It was a frustrating offseason for the New York Knicks. The once-proud NBA franchise has suffered through years of ineptitude but had managed to clear salary cap room for THIS summer’s free agency period. Unfortunately, the Knicks got shut out after being rejected by LeBron James and every other major free agent.
The one surprise starter that New York managed to acquire this offseason was Russian center Timofey Mozgov. That may not be a good thing. Mozgov was described by the New York Daily News as “a human foul machine.”
