Breaking News: Knicks trade for Patrick Ewing Jr.

Who didn’t see this coming? The more surprising parts are that, (1) The Rockets actually accepted New York’s draft rights to FREDERIC WEIS in exchange for Ewing Jr., who picked up the nickname “The Legacy” in the Dime office during his Georgetown run, and (2) That the Knicks even remembered that they had Weis’ rights.

Basketball-wise, Ewing Jr. is a hustle player who can play some D and fill in that Renaldo Balkman-type role as a small forward/power forward in New York. But really, this seems morel like a PR move or a favor to Knicks legend Patrick Ewing Sr., who will be enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame next week.
