David West “Very Likely” to Sign With Knicks in Free Agency, Per Report

David West decided not to exercise the option in his contract, electing to test free agency rather than return to the Pacers, who plan to play at a faster tempo next year.

Nearly 35 years old, West figured to be passing up nearly $12 million due to him next season in order to join a contender and finish his quality career with a chance to add a ring.

Wait, what? The news is very peculiar for a couple reasons. First, the Knicks are far from a contender. Also, they will still need a rim protector, so this means Carmelo Anthony is boxed into playing as a small forward. If not’s that Melo has to be a power forward all the time, but this move makes it a lot harder to slot him there.

Using valuable cap space on a player who is in no way part of the future also seems like a poor decision, but also completely in line with recent Knicks history.
