The buyout of Jared Jeffries with the Rockets became official Friday and he was placed on waivers, according to two NBA sources.

If Jeffries clears waivers, it won't be until Tuesday, when the Knicks plan to swoop in.

Jeffries (6-11) is one of Mike D'Antoni's big favorites, and Donnie Walsh and the Knicks coach feel he can solidify the weakened interior defense that was left bereft of size from the Carmelo Anthony trade.

Speaking before facing the Cavaliers in Cleveland, D'Antoni confirmed the Knicks' interest and said Walsh is working to do "what's best available."

"He's a winner," D'Antoni said of Jeffries. "He played well with us."

Jeffries was in the Knicks starting frontcourt last season before they traded him to Houston last February for more salary-cap space. His departure last season ruined the Knicks on the defensive end, as they were miserable after the trade.

Jeffries is in the last year of his contract and will make about $6.9 million this season. He appeared in 18 games this season (none after Feb. 2) and never found a place in coach Rick Adelman's rotation after joining the Rockets.

Walsh is mulling signing two big men to give the roster more size after losing Timofey Mozgov and Anthony Randolph in the 'Melo deal. Former Knicks center Earl Barron is still on the radar.

I really hope Mike isn't planning on starting Jeffries. We would be too small.

Would you just sign Earl Barron already Donnie?

He is a good defender and he seems to be the tallest player D'antoni will play.

I would like Barron and Jeffries though.

He or anyone brought in at center will not be needed to score.

Just to clean the glass.

Jared Jeffries is 6'11
Turiaf is 6'10

Who are the Knicks going to get rid of now with Jeffries, and the possibility of Barron? Anthony Carter, Shelden Williams, Renaldo Balkman getting bought out?

Have you ever seen Jeffries.

He's rail thin, any big man can back his ass down in the post until the restricted area and throw up a hookshot.

They're gonna get rid of Azubuike since he's not at all physically capable of playing. Get rid of him and get Barron already. We can use him for Orlando where we'll need his size against D-Howard.

Gallo is also 6'10. N D'Antoni wouldnt even let him play PF.Height has nothing to do with it.It's about how you play.Jeffries is essentially a SF.He doesn't do anything we need.Turiaf is a far better "big man" than he is.I just think it's a waste of time but w/e....long as it's not long term.

Jared Jeffries will sign with the Knicks on Tuesday.

Update (5:00): Corey Brewer will be the odd man out.
Our old friend Jared Jeffries, he of the long-limbed defense and perpetually quizzical expression, will rejoin the Knicks after clearing waivers, reports the Daily News. Jeffries, who hasn't seen much burn since being dealt to the Rockets a year ago, was bought out by Houston last week and will officially become a free agent tomorrow night (but not in time to suit up for New York's game in Orlando). Mike D'Antoni's roster currently stands at fifteen players, which means somebody will have to go:


Jeffries should be in uniform on Wednesday against New Orleans. In order to create a roster spot for Jeffries, the Knicks will have to cut a player. The most likely candidate is former lottery pick Shelden Williams, who came over from Denver in the Carmelo Anthony trade. Renaldo Balkman - another piece in the Anthony deal - is the second most likely candidate to be released.

It's curious that a team wanting for defense and rebounding would count two capable energy bros among its dispensable. I guess D'Antoni only has so much room for guys who do their work without scoring, and Jeffries would immediately gobble up a lot of those minutes upon arriving. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Jared's starting at center by next week. What this means for a potential Earl Barron (or, if you're so inclined, Mike Bibby) acquisition remains to be seen.

I think Bibby brought his talents to South Beach, he just didn't have a BSPN special hour long show.
