Marc Berman has a new article up that’s mostly about how Melo is likely to re-sign with the Knicks (I tend to agree), but buried in the article is a disturbing little nugget of information:
The Knicks have other free agents in center Cole Aldrich, Shannon Brown, injury-prone Kenyon Martin and point guard Tour’e Murry, whom the Knicks have until Monday to offer a $1 million qualifying offer to make him restricted. Only Murry has a shot at returning.
I suppose you can take that with a grain of salt (Berman has been known to get things wrong on occasion), but the way that he says it so definitively suggests to me that he has a pretty good inkling of what the Knicks’ plans are regarding ol’ King Cole. If Berman writes the truth, then that would be a shame. as Aldrich is more than capable of being a member of the Knicks rotation.
