Knicks sign Bibby and re-sign Jeffries
 
Where's that Knicks Chick?

Quote:

The New York Knicks have signed veteran guard Mike Bibby, re-signed forward Jared Jeffries, and inked their two draft picks.

With guard Iman Shumpert and center Josh Harrellson also signing Sunday, the Knicks' roster is at 11 players. Most of their moves were on hold while they worked to complete a three-team trade that brought Tyson Chandler from Dallas to New York on Saturday.

Bibby could replace Chauncey Billups, who the Knicks used the amnesty clause to waive so they could afford Chandler's four-year, $56 million contract. Bibby has averaged 15.2 points in 13 NBA seasons but struggled last season for the Miami Heat, managing only 3.6 points per game in 20 postseason starts.

Shumpert, the No. 17 pick from Georgia Tech, is also an option at the point.

Jeffries is a favorite of coach Mike D'Antoni because of his ability to defend multiple positions.

I'd imagine Tony Douglas would start at point.

I could see T.Douglas starting as well though I don't believe he will last there. I'm liking what Iman has but D'antoni likes his vets at point, we could see Bibby there sooner than later

Bibby is nothing more then a spot up 3 point shooter. He's a liability now at the defensive end. He could start considering they have melo who dominates the ball most of the time.
