The New York Knicks have agreed in principle to a two year contract with free agent Anthony Roberson, the New York Post is reporting.
The deal, according to the Post, is likely to expediate the departure of Stephon Marbury.
While the Knicks are trying to acquire help at the point through a trade, they did deny the rumor that Marbury's time in New York would officially come to an end by the end of the week.
The Knicks also have considered waiving center Jerome James, who played five minutes last season and still has knee pain.
I doubt Marbury will be cut right away. What I can say is if Marbury is cut it will be because his poor chemistry with the team not because of anything else. Even when there are interviews and players talk about who they were hanging out with or speaking to Marbury's name never comes up.
Roberson is a good pick up. The kid can drive and shoot the lights out.
