Just doesn't make sense, unless another trade in the works. Time will tell.

But getting Bender certaintly isn't "risky". What's the risk?

We don't have the details of the contract, but I guess they could just re-sign Chris Hunter or one of the other bums they picked up last season for cheap. Maybe Walsh just likes Bender and wants to give him some cash.

I swear, I was thinking the same thing. Maybe he just likes the guy or are friends, and this is a way to get him some cash legally. This wouldn't be the first time.

James Dolan and Allan Houston were good friends supposedly. That's why he paid him $100 million in an extension.

my bad. Well there's no risk for the Knicks, I meant that they're taking a risk on him, since he hasnt played for so long and was already retired due to injury.

On a related matter, Donnie Walsh really likes to brings players in he knows. Harrington, now Bender....

Look for Knicks to try to get Jermaine O'Neal cheaply during the summer.

I guess Walsh wants to have an Indiana Pacers reunion. You guys can sign Jermaine O'Neal and Jamaal Tinsley this summer.

I doubt Jonathan Bender does anything special in his time with New York. He was quite the talent, but knee injuries derailed his career. I'm shocked to see him back in the league, because I thought he risked serious damage by playing again. I can tell you this, Bender won't feel as good as he does now once New York plays a couple of back to backs.

I'm thinking O'Neal is probably plan B for when James isn't interested.
