That was the rumor 2 weeks ago...

If Rivers is moved and the transaction opens up a roster spot, big man John Henson is among the players on the Knicks’ radar for that roster spot, per SNY sources. Big man Norvel Pelle is also on New York’s radar if a roster spot opens up, per SNY sources.

No he's still on the roster. Just filling the last roster spot.

wished they used the spot for a young guy to get them into our system instead of a washed +30 year old...but Thibs really isn't invested in young players as it is. Just a warm body at this point to crack the glass in case of emergency.

I think either he or Pelle will get the spot. They will be competing over the next 10-20 days. There's no need for 4 active C's.

I don’t mind stacking up on bigs

Noel is injury prone and Gibson shouldnt be playing big minutes at this point in his career

Fans hope Knicks can get another Jeremy Lin among young unwanted players.

I thought he was pretty decent last season. Definitely good at his role anyways.

I am hoping he can play PG. At least he seems to be a better shooter than Payton
