This was something power forward Elton Brand used to talk about with his former coach at Peekskill High School: Finishing it all up at the Garden.

Brand, the 34-year-old Westchester County product, is a free agent, seeking one last contract before retirement. The Knicks, coincidently, have a dire need for another big man off the bench and are trying to snag him as their first free-agent acquisition this summer.

“If this happens, this would be amazing,’’ longtime Peekskill High coach Lou Panzanaro told The Post. “He always indicated he would love to finish his career in New York, his last contract, in the twilight of his career. You never know how things are going to go. His mother [Daisy] hoped the same thing. Early in his career, she didn’t want him here because of the distractions. Chicago and L.A. were fine.’’

Brand, the No. 1 overall pick by the Bulls in 1999, hasn’t been the same player since returning in 2007 from a major Achilles tendon rupture — the same injury Kobe Bryant is battling. Brand spent last season in Dallas, but didn’t put down roots. Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is chasing free-agent center Andrew Bynum, so Brand could be on the backburner there.

The Knicks re-signed two of their three major free agents, J.R. Smith and Pablo Prigioni. Chris Copeland is off to the Pacers. With Andrea Bargnani aboard and Marcus Camby gone, the Knicks feel they need another banger inside and a backup for center Tyson Chandler. The Knicks also may not be able to re-sign power forward Kenyon Martin.

Panzanaro didn’t think Brand looked the same as he had before the injury in Dallas, where he averaged 7.2 points and 6.0 rebounds last season in 21.2 minutes per game.

“I’ve seen him getting away from what he does best,’’ Panzanaro said. “He’s physically aggressive from the low post. In Dallas, he was more on the high post, setting screens. He was not getting the ball too much.’’

The Knicks have scant money left for free agency — only $1.7 million on their mini mid-level exception. And they have all those veteran minimum deals of $1.4 million to fill out their roster. The Knicks have 10 players solidified for their training-camp roster and can add five more, and are trying to net a third point guard and a small forward.

“We’re just trying to get Elton a contract that is fair for his value in this marketplace,’’ said Brand’s agent, David Falk, who repped Patrick Ewing.

Sources said the Bulls and Cavaliers also inquired about Brand early in free agency.

“He’s still very effective in the low post,’’ Panzanaro said. “He can score down there. I don’t think they need him to be a jump-shooter. They need him to rebound.’’

That Brand can still do, even if he’s a little slower on the defensive end.

“There’s no question that Achilles injury really affected his career,” Panzanaro said. “He doesn’t have the vertical [leap] he once had. The leg is still smaller than the other one. It affected him, but he stays in such good shape and works so hard, he’s managed to overcome a lot of things that others might not have.’’

One NBA executive said Brand fits in well with the Knicks because Bargnani is such a different type of power forward.

“It’d be a credible signing,’’ the general manager said. “He’s capable of having a really good game every so often. He’s not much of a defender anymore, but he can be a good backup.’’

The Knicks have lost out on a lot of their targets, including small forward Francisco Garcia of The Bronx. He turned down the Knicks’ offer of the veteran minimum and re-signed with the Rockets.

Garcia’s agent, Aaron Goodwin, said the decision was based on playing with Dwight Howard, keeping his Bird rights intact — which has become important in the tighter new market — and Texas having no state income tax.

“The Knicks were one of the first to express interest and we were very appreciative,’’ Goodwin said.

Small forward Dahtnay Jones is still on the Knicks’ board, and they hope to sign a point guard for the minimum — with Sebastian Telfair, Will Bynum and Aaron Brooks targets.

Andrea Bargnani is already asking former Knick Danilo Gallinari about the best Italian restaurants in Manhattan. Bargnani, whose trade from the Raptors will become official Wednesday, is flying in from Rome tomorrow to meet with Knicks brass.

Bargnani and Gallinari, from Milan, are close former Italian National Team members. Gallinari is giving Bargnani a lot of advice.

“We are very good friends,’’ Gallinari said in an email to The Post. “He’s a great guy. He loves to work and he likes New York a lot. He’s very excited. I think he will be good in New York.’’

Clearly, Bargnani, the No. 1 pick in 2007, needed a change of scenery and won’t have the burden of living up to his draft selection. Bargnani, who had an injury-wracked 35-game season, seemingly is healthy and is scheduled to participate for Italy’s National Team in the European Championships, which begin Sept. 4. Gallinari is still rehabbing a torn ACL. When the Knicks drafted Gallinari, there were a lot of comparisons between the two Italians, and Gallinari has proven the better pro.

With Gallinari in Denver and Bargnani in New York, the NBA may consider sending those teams to Italy for preseason next year.

“I hope we do,’’ Gallinari said.

With just one point guard on the roster, the New York Knicks moved to secure Pablo Prigioni, re-signing him to a three-year deal that will pay him just under $6 million. The third year is a team option.

The Knicks essentially had to decide between Prigioni and Chris Copeland given their salary situation, and for all of Copeland's benefits, they made the right decision. Prigioni's play in the starting lineup with Raymond Felton was a huge key to the Knicks' second-half surge last season. Per NBA.com, the Knicks were a better shooting (53.3 effective field goal percentage vs. 50.6), passing (17.2-percent a.ssist ratio vs. 15.1) and defensive (100.9 points allowed per 100 possessions vs. 104.7) with Prigioni on the court as opposed to on the bench. He was a glue guy that helped elevate the play of others while on the floor, particularly when used with a group of starters that could mask his shooting reluctance.

All that for a dirt-cheap price. Nice job by Glen Grunewald.

The Knicks announced their first-round pick Tim Hardaway Jr. and C.J Leslie, who fell out of the draft, have been signed.

Hardaway signed his standard rookie contract of 4 year, $6 million with the requisite team options after the third and fourth years. Leslie, out of North Carolina State, shockingly fell out of the draft and the Knicks scooped him up, agreeing to terms the morning after the draft on June 28th.

Leslie, an athletic 6-9 combo forward, has a partially guaranteed deal. The Post reported the Knicks had Leslie slated as a late first-round pick and was on their board at 24 if the draft fell a certain way. Leslie averaged 13.7 points on 49.7 percent shooting, leaving NC State after his junior year amid rumors of having a bad personality.

The Knicks will begin their first summer-league practice Tuesday night in Las Vegas. Hardaway and Leslie will play. The Knicks announced their full summer-league roster and one surprise addition is big man Jeremy Tyler, who has played with Atlanta and Golden State.

Tyler, ex-Knick draft pick Jerome Jordan and Farmingdale State 7-footer A.J. Matthews are the bigs to watch when the Knicks open summer-league action July 12 vs. New Orleans.

First, the obvious: Iman Shumpert headlines the team. The third-year guard will be experiencing his first Vegas competition (lockout in 2011, knee injury in 2012) and some are wary of him participating. But he isn't. Shump is there, he said, "just to be under coaching."

Tim Hardaway Jr. (Michigan) and C.J. Leslie (NC State) are the rookies. Hardaway Jr. was the team's first round pick, while Leslie was -- somewhat surprisingly -- undrafted and immediately signed by the Knicks. Consider him their second round pick, though they didn't have a second rounder in this year's draft.

Now, for a few other reasons to watch:

-- Chris Smith: JR's younger brother spent most of the past year recovering from a knee injury suffered in training camp. He didn't exactly stand out on the summer league team last year, but hopes to prove himself as a perimeter defender and a player who can make things happen in transition.

-- Tony Mitchell: No, not the kid from North Texas who was drafted in the second round by the Pistons. This Tony Mitchell is the one who was suspended indefinitely by Alabama during his junior year (2011-12) and went undrafted. He spent last season playing in the D-League and was named Rookie of the Year and made All-NBA D-League first team. He also won the D-League's Slam Dunk contest. Maturity has been an issue in the past, but at 23, and with his window of opportunity closing, can Mitchell show he belongs at the NBA level?

-- Jeremy Tyler: Four years ago, he made headlines when he boldly left his high school in San Diego after his JUNIOR year to play professionally overseas. The move proved to be a major detriment to his development. Tyler was eventually drafted (2011, second round, Bobcats) and has played in just 63 NBA games between three teams since then. Tyler is a big body (6-10, 260 pounds) but has been slow to develop an NBA game. What's important to note here is that he's still just 22 years old.

Others of note: Center Jerome Jordan is back again with the team . . . Justin Brownlee is a name St. John's fans certainly will recognize . . . We will really see if the predraft hype matched the potential with A.J. Matthews, the 7-1 center who played at Division III Farmingdale State (Long Island).

Remember, you can watch the Knicks in the NBA Summer League from Las Vegas on MSG Network. The first game is Friday (July 12) at 4 p.m. ET against the Pelicans. Mike Breen, Walt Frazier and myself will have the coverage.
