NEW YORK -- One of the greatest NBA coaches ever, Pat Riley, and two of the best players in the game today, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, still couldn't convince Baron Davis to sign with the Heat last December.

Davis already knew where he wanted to sign for the veteran's minimum: the New York Knicks.

"I spoke to Pat Riley. D-Wade, LeBron, they texted me and asked me what was up," Davis said. "But I pretty much knew I wanted to come here and play in the Garden and play in front of these fans and play for this organization. I always wanted to play here, so this was really like my first choice."

Mike D'Antoni is glad to have him. After the Knicks' 99-82 win over the Hawks Wednesday night at the arena Davis dreamed of playing in, Madison Square Garden, the head coach said he's optimistic Davis will be able to maintain the offensive flow Jeremy Lin will establish from the opening tip.

Chris Trotman/Getty ImagesBaron Davis ended up exactly where he always wanted to be.
"[Baron's] getting there," D'Antoni said. "He hasn't played for a year. He had to lay in his bed for about three months with a bad back ... I can see a little stuff that's good and you see where he's rusty. But he's going to be good. It's going to be a nice little tandem that we having coming in. Nothing should drop off, and that's not normal around the NBA to have two guys that can play the way they're playing."

After making his season debut Monday night against the Nets, scoring only three points and dishing out one a.ssist, Davis said he wanted to bring more energy and excitement to the team on Wednesday. Though he finished with five turnovers -- a number that should decrease as he gets more repetitions -- he had six a.ssists and two steals. After the win, J.R. Smith and Steve Novak said they felt Davis' presence more on the court, which the veteran point guard was going for.

"I thought the first game, I was a little tentative and I didn't have any presence," Davis said. "I was kind of holding back. A couple friends called me and just told me, 'Hey, don't hold back. Push yourself.' And that's what I did tonight, and that's what I'm going to continue to do."

Davis' focus is to be a pass-first point guard and make plays. He said he doesn't mind coming off the bench -- "that's kind of fun for me," he said -- and he's hopeful he'll take some pressure off Lin, who's been carrying the team's load since his sudden rise. While Carmelo Anthony has returned to play some point-forward, Davis' role is arguably more critical because Melo, along with Amare Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler, need a point guard to create off screens and develop the necessary spacing they need to operate and score.

"I came off the bench in Cleveland and I came off the bench with the Clippers a couple of times when I was coming back from injuries," Davis said. "So that doesn't bother me. I just want to get out there and I want to make a difference."

Davis is "very excited" about the Knicks' matchup against the Heat in Miami Thursday night, but he's even more excited about the two days after the All-Star break. The Knicks have no games and Davis said those practice days will help him get more familiar with his teammates and integrated further into the offense, while improving his strength and conditioning on a personal level.

Davis said the Knicks are "talented," but the team needs time to gel. But he said once they get accustomed to each other's favorite spots on the court, as well as improve their defensive rotations and overall camaraderie, they're going to be a tough team to be beat. For Davis, he's prepared to do whatever it takes to help the Knicks win.

"It's my 13th year in the league, so I'm not f!ghting for anything but a championship," Davis said. "That's all that matters."

yeah, thats an old rumor that resurfaced again...can it work, yeah because Orlando will likely have to (and it's no secret they've been trying to include in ALL the deals) include Hedo and his od contract to make the numbers match up.

i don't think this happens but i don't understand it from Orlando's standpoint since ur trying to get rid of Hedo's 3 year deal, why add on another year plus 2 million more with Tyson UNLESS the teams problem is Hedo himself and not the money

Jorts and Iman are expected to be back for tomorrow's practice

as far as that Rondo sh*t, not the first time this season it's been rumored for that to happen but with the pieces in the rumor why would Boston give away their best playmaker and a PG at that for a Gasol who pretty much does what KG does

I really hope we can come together as a cohesive unit after that all star break. Jeremy truley makes everyone around him a more complete a.ssertive baller. If Melo doesn't mind dropping his scoring average we can take this thing to the ECF. I'm a believer but not a fool, Miami has the best Offense and Defense this year, but anything can happen in a 7 game set. If we beat Miami in the playoffs then we'll be raising a banner in November. Let's do this!!

looks like Amar'e is trying to lose weight, if he does, we'll see if the reason for his lack of explosiveness was because of the muscle he gained over the summer

Shump MIGHT be able to play 2morrow

Josh Harrellson and Iman Shumpert will return to the floor Wednesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Both rookies made it through practice Tuesday without issue, according to coach Mike D'Antoni.

"Both seemed to have no ill effects. We'll see in the game and stuff. Basically we're good. They will play tomorrow," D'Antoni said.

Harrellson has been out since Jan. 21, when he fractured his right wrist. Shumpert has been sidelined since last Monday due to left knee tendinitis that became too severe to play with. Both practiced for the first time on Tuesday.

Their return should bolster the Knicks' bench.

When healthy, Harrellson proved that he can knock down the outside shot. The 6-10 forward hit 35 percent of his 3-point attempts in his first 16 games. The Knicks enter play Wednesday with the fourth-worst 3-point shooting percentage in the league.

Shumpert has proved to be extremely valuable as a defender, particularly on the perimeter. The first-year guard is fourth in steals per 48 minutes, with 3.18 (based on players who play at least 20 minutes per game).

It'll be interesting to see how D'Antoni shuffles his rotation to make room for Shumpert and Harrellson. The coach hinted that he'd go with a 10-man rotation.

"It's not humanly possible to play 12 guys in a normal rotation. Ten probably. Eleven maybe," he said. "That’s how we have to do it. We’ll see how injuries go, who's playing well. The idea is you got to be ready because [the player] who doesn't play today might play tomorrow.

"It might be 10-man rotation for back-to-backs, but it might not my the same 10. You might have another guy come in. Instead of the 10th guy ... the 11 guy comes in. Something like that."

D'Antoni said he'd like to stick with reserves Baron Davis and J.R. Smith in the backcourt. That means that Shumpert is likely to see time at small forward, though Smith and Shumpert can be interchangeable in those roles.

Bill Walker did not practice Tuesday due to a sore left elbow, and it appears Shumpert will take his minutes in the rotation.

As for Harrellson, he may take minutes away from Jared Jeffries, who has thrived as a team defender and showed an improved touch on the offensive end since Jeremy Lin took over at point guard.

Before he went down with an injury, D'Antoni liked using Harrellson with Amare Stoudemire in the second unit because Harrellson stretched the defense and created space for Stoudemire to operate.
