Report: Knicks still interested in Sessions

Citing a source "with intimate knowledge of the situation," Newsday reports that the Knicks remain very interested in bringing in free agent Ramon Sessions , despite internet speculation to the contrary.

The story speculates that the holdup on Sessions accepting or declining the Knicks' offer -- believed to be for $4 million this year with an 8 percent reduction in the second year -- could be that they're waiting to see if the L.A. Clippers make room on their roster.

Either way, the Knicks deal is thought to be the best one currently on the table for Sessions, who is running out of time to find a home for 2009-10. The Knicks could be counting on that, believing that unless something better comes along, Sessions will eventually bite the bullet and sign with them.

Meanwhile, Knicks free agent Nate Robinson recently posted on his Twitter account that he would be meeting with Donnie Walsh on Wednesday about potentially coming back to the team, and asked his Twitter followers to keep their fingers crossed.

Knicks, Blazers, Clippers trade could be in works

The New York Daily News reports that the Trail Blazers, the Knicks and the Clippers could be mulling over a three-way trade that would send David Lee to Portland and Quentin Richardson to Los Angeles, and both Marcus Camby and Channing Frye to New York.

Knicks president Donnie Walsh denied that he was working on the trade, although the Daily News said several sources within the Knicks organization confirmed that the prospect of adding Camby to the roster has been discussed recently.

Portland has been interested in Lee for some time, and it is believed that Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni would be happy to exchange the 6-9 Lee for the 7-0 Camby at center.

Clippers giving Miles a look

The Los Angeles Times reports that Darius Miles worked out for the Clippers on Tuesday, and that the Clippers would likely jump at the chance to sign the 6-foot-9 free agent to bolster their depth.

"We have an extra roster spot," coach and general manager Mike Dunleavy said. "He is starting to work out for teams. And so, we're just looking into the situation."

Miles nearly made the Boston Celtics roster in training camp, but was ultimately cut due to Boston simply having no available roster space to bring him in. It's also worth noting that any team that signs Miles will have to deal with a mandatory 10-game league suspension Miles has yet to serve, as he has been inactive for more than two years. The NBA levied the suspension on Miles for a violation of the substance abuse policy.

The Times also reported that Miles' former team, the Portland Trail Blazers, may take a financial hit if Miles makes a successful comeback with another team. The story said Miles would make a reported $9 million this season, which would probably go back on the Trail Blazers' books if Miles plays more than 10 games this year.

Report: Mobley could retire over health concerns

Not long after being part of a trade that brought him to the New York Knicks from the Los Angeles Clippers, guard Cuttino Mobley is "strongly mulling" a medical retirement due to his enlarged heart condition, the New York Post reported on Thursday.

The heart issue has been a major holdup for Mobley, 33, who has been unable to gain medical clearance to play for the Knicks since the trade. Mobley has one more test scheduled for Thursday, and if he chooses to retire, the announcement could come as early as Friday.

An unnamed source told the Post that Mobley was the person who initiated the extra testing after he failed his initial physical for the Knicks. Mobley reportedly signed a waiver while with the Clippers that released the team from any liability should he have heart-related health issues.

"(Mobley is) not really focused on basketball, his main concern is his health," the source told the Post.

Mobley was acquired by the Knicks in large part because of his contract that expires after next season, and still has $18.9 million remaining on it. The Knicks have been focusing on clearing the financial path for a run at a major free agent in 2010.

Report: Knicks may deal Crawford for Harrington

Newsday reports that the Knicks may be in the final stages of a three-way trade with Golden State and the Los Angeles Clippers that would send Jamal Crawford, Zach Randolph and Mardy Collins elsewhere, while bringing Al Harrington to New York from the Warriors, as well as Tim Thomas and Cuttino Mobley from the Clippers.

The deal is reportedly a cost-cutting move, since Thomas, Mobley and Harrington each have deals that expire in 2010.

Harrington has been asking for a trade to get out of Golden State all season. The Knicks may be ready to help him achieve that goal in exchange for Crawford, although the New York Post speculated that the Knicks may give up Malik Rose instead.
