According to the New York Post‘s Marc Berman on Wednesday, the Knicks “inquired” about Bledsoe’s availability.
However, Berman noted the Knicks likely don’t have the means to complete a deal since they’re light on appealing trade chips.
A source also told Berman “the Knicks are among a multitude of teams that have inquired about” free-agent floor general Ramon Sessions.
Given the Knicks’ salary cap situation, Sessions would be a logistically easier addition than Bledsoe—who has two years and $29.5 million left on his contract.
As Berman noted, the Knicks—after re-signing Ron Baker for the $9 million room exception and landing Tim Hardaway Jr. after extending him a four-year, $71 million offer sheet—only have $1.5 million in cap space.
However, they would be allowed to dip over the cap threshold by offering Sessions a veteran minimum contract worth roughly $2.3 million.
In 50 games last season, Sessions averaged 6.2 points, 2.5 assists and 0.5 steals while shooting 38.0 percent from the field, including 33.9 percent from three.
