08:03 AM ET 08.04 | A source close to unrestricted free agent Chris Andersen said the power forward is open to signing for the veteran's minimum. That's all the Knicks can offer, and they could use a seasoned backup for Amare Stoudemire who can score inside, rebound and block shots. There's no word yet if Andersen, 34, has been in talks with the Knicks, who don't comment publicly on any free agents. But his former high school coach, Rob Stewart, said that Andersen would love the opportunity to play in New York.

Wasn't he arrested for some sort of sex offense?What happened to that?

Child pron, actually. And apparently, he was absolved of the allegations.

And as for a drug addict "relapsing in New York," a drug addict can relapse anywhere.
