The New York Knicks have been in the news a lot in recent weeks with Phil Jackson being let go, Tim Hardaway Jr. signing a monster contract, who the next general manager will be, and the ongoing drama over what the future holds for Carmelo Anthony. All the turmoil has many wondering who in the world would want to play for the team. Apparently, there is at least one guy (besides Hardaway) that wants to play in the Big Apple.
Restricted free agent Ron Baker's deal to stay with the Knicks: Two-years, $8.9M, including a player option, league sources tell ESPN.

Who is Ron Baker? Well, the former Wichita State guard is a long way from superstar status. The Knicks signed him as an undrafted free agent last season. He ended up playing in 52 games, started 13, and averaged 4.1 points, 2.1 assists, and 1.9 rebounds a game.
Look out Golden State.
