Newsday's Al Iannazzone takes you inside the Knicks.
Here comes the Sun (Yue)
The Knicks plan to add yet another name to the training camp roster. Though it has not yet been officially announced, the Knicks have agreed to a partially-guaranteed deal with G/F Sun Yue, formerly of the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Ho-Beck.
Yue is an interesting player because, at 6-9, he is more of a point-forward type (they call him "the Chinese Magic Johnson" ) who might find a comfort zone in Mike D'Antoni's system. But the former second round pick couldn't crack the Lakers rotation and was eventually waived (after getting a ring, though).
This latest addition, along with Friday's non-guaranteed signings of G Gabe Pruitt and F Warren Carter, makes it 17 healthy players expected to be at camp, including David Lee and Nate Robinson who still remain unsigned despite indications last week that something would get done on the restricted free agent front soon.
We're two weeks from the start of training camp.
