08:07 AM ET 10.04 | Rasheed Wallace is back in the NBA, and it's up to the Knicks to find out how much mileage he has left. Athough Wallace was expected to get the veteran's minimum of $1.7 million, Woodson made it seem as if this will be a tryout. "Only time will tell," Woodson said after practice in Greenburgh. "There's nothing guaranteed or definite. But it will be worth it to look to see, from a coaching standpoint, if he can still play and help us." That question might have taken on even bigger implications for Woodson, once it was brought to his attention by media members that Wallace has been out for the last two seasons and not just this past season. ... [Woodson] still believes that Wallace's experience and defensive talents can help the Knicks.

It's not like Sheed, Thomas, Camby, and Kidd, if healthy, can't help the Knicks out and whatta we talkin about 9 mil a year collectively. Its not like the Knicks have all this cap room to go sign better players. I for one don't want a buncha inexperienced 1st or 2nd year players on the team. Thats not gonna help the team come playoffs time. At least these guys will if healthy. Ya know, theres so much hate out there for the Knicks in general, so leave it to us, the loyal Knicks faithful to express optimism, however, certainly not "lostwill"......the season is already a wash and we have no shot at doin anything according to him!

By signing Wallace, it kinda gives NY a slight odour of desperation.
My goodness, what has NY done to themselves.

Begin with such promise and cap space...sign Amare (bum knees, eyes, etc...) to a ridiculous contract, team him up with the modern day Allen Iverson; Carmello Anthony to completely destroy any team building chemistry, and now have this notion that the final poiece of the puzzle is to aquire washed-up players like Wallace to give them a vetran or two for stability.

The Titanic had a better future AFTER hitting the big iceberg.

...I genuinely feel bad for NY Knick fans.
