Knicks' plans don't include Iverson

November 21, 2009

The Knicks won't sign Allen Iverson, believing any short-term gain would hinder their plans to build for the future.

Team president Donnie Walsh said Friday the team won't make any additions at this time despite its 2-9 record. He added the decision to pass on the former MVP had nothing to do with Iverson's ability to play or his character in the locker room.

"I've always admired him," Walsh said. "I think he'd be a great addition for a team that's in a different position than we're in, and I hope he gets picked up."

•Cavaliers center Shaquille O'Neal missed his fourth straight game with a strained right shoulder. O'Neal did not travel for the Cavaliers' game Friday with the Pacers. ... Nets guard Devin Harris is expected to play Saturday against the Knicks. Harris has missed 10 games with a groin injury. ... Tracy McGrady says he's ready to play, but the Rockets don't agree. McGrady had microfracture surgery on his left knee in February. He's expected to have an MRI on Monday.
