With training camp less than two weeks away, the New York Knicks are looking far and wide and covering every base to look at ways at bolstering the roster. The latest has them giving the mercurial Ricky Davis a shot at a camp invite. He was in New York on Tuesday for a workout.
Per Jared Zwerling of Bleacher Report (via Twitter):
Obviously, the chances of Davis making the Knicks squad are slim and none, but just the mere fact that Davis was afforded a workout does raise a few eyebrows.
In his 14 years in the NBA, while playing for six squads, Davis was known more for his off-the-court persona and his lavish and extravagant partying ways. To many, Davis was viewed as a cancer. I mean, after all, this is the guy who shot at the wrong hoop just so he could grab his own rebound(it doesn’t work that way anyway) for a triple-double. Click below for visual evidence.
In any event, his presence at a club workout is interesting. If in any way shape or form Davis is reformed in his three years away from the NBA, maybe he does have a place back in the NBA. For the last three years, Davis has been playing in the D-League and overseas.
For his NBA career Davis has averaged a respectable 13.5 points, 3.3 assists and 3.5 rebounds. While the Knicks don’t necessarily need a wing, you at least should see what the guy has left in him. It should be viewed as low-risk/high-reward type of deal.
Again, it’s a longshot, but when it comes to Davis, you never know. He has shocked and dazzled us before and it should be interesting to see how he does in camp.
