ESPN Insider Chris Sheridan reports the New York Knicks and Chris Duhon are close to an agreement that would give the former blue devil 11.5 million over the next two seasons. Donnie Walsh met with Duhon today and it appears it won't be his last.
Solid back up. I don't care how much it is as long as it's 2 years
JULY 4 UPDATE: It's happening. The Knicks will get Chris Duhon.

duhon and gallinari may not be the sexiest names but at least they are guys who are gonna go out and play their hardest and at least make the knicks competitive. sadly that alone is a step up for the knicks.
and duhon has been kind of hidden there behind Hinrich but he actually plays well when he gets the minutes. good for the knix
Essentially they are overpaying for the two years, but they need to convince free agents to "only" sign two year deal. After two years, after Knicks get Lebron, they can resign Duhon again without cap implications...is that right?
Edit: Never mind. You have to have 3 years for Bird rights. Duhon has to go under cap.
Also, I think D'Antoni desperately wants to cut Marbury and needs at least a serviceable point guard to convince Walsh to do it. Duhon is good enough for that.
