Lawrence: Knicks Interested In Blazers C Joel Przybilla?

Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News writes that the New York Knicks are still in the market for a big man... ----------------------------- The Knicks' main competition for a big man is said to be Orlando, which traded reserve center Marcin Gortat last month to the Suns in the deal that brought Hedo Turkoglu to the Magic. The Magic miss Gortat's defense and board work and would like to address that area. Among big men, the Knicks reportedly have talked about Portland's Joel Przybilla and Memphis' Marc Gasol. However, they have concerns about Przybilla's health and whether he'd be a good fit in their offense. With Marcus Camby out for at least a month following knee surgery, Przybilla is starting now and perhaps will be able to allay some concerns that he has not fully recovered from a severe knee injury. ----------------------------- Every list of big man buyers in advance of the trade deadline seems to start with New York and Orlando. Given how aggressively the Sacramento Kings attacked Przybilla on Monday night, word about his health would seem to be completely out by now. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
