It’s been a quiet preseason for the Knicks. If NBA free agency were airplanes, restricted free agents David Lee and Nate Robinson are in a holding pattern waiting for the weather to change. And the Milwaukee to New York flight (Ramon Sessions) hasn’t gotten off the ground, and may be rerouted to Los Angeles.
So over anxious New Yorkers, like yours truly, are looking for any clue that might shed some light on these events. Nate Robinson is a frequent twitterer, and perhaps he hinted at a Knicks resigning.

For the Twitter-illiterate and the elderly, I’ll translate: Robinson is telling his friends he’ll be in New York City on the 17th (Monday), and he’ll be back playing for the Knicks. Now granted perhaps Nate is just speculating, and perhaps he’s coming into New York for another reason. It’s certainly possible that nothing will happen in the next few days, especially if Donnie Walsh is waiting out the Ramon Sessions situation. I’ll guess we’ll find out the answers to these sooner or later.
Boy it is a slow summer.
