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.

While the New York Knicks continue to evaluate numerous options at guard -- including pursuing restricted free agent Ramon Sessions -- Nate Robinson remains patient and loyal, reiterating his desire to remain a Knick, Newsday reports.
The story reported that one of Robinson's acquaintances said that he "made it clear to Donnie [Walsh] and the organization that he wants to be there" and that he is content to "wait patiently while they sort through whatever they need to."
Robinson has enjoyed success in New York and has remained very loyal to the club despite the team's obvious shopping around, and his asking price is said to be much lower than that if fellow Knicks free agent David Lee . If the Knicks decided to part ways with Robinson in favor of another player, a sign and trade could be an option.

Unrestricted free agent point guard Jason Kidd will meet with New York Knicks officials on the first day of the free agent courting period, with the Knicks hoping to bring in the veteran for a roughly $5.6 million mid-level exception.
The New York Daily News reports that Kidd will meet with Knicks president Donnie Walsh and coach Mike D'Antoni , follwing through on his comments from earlier this year that he would strongly consider signing with the Knicks.
The Daily News said the Knicks would probably offer a one-year deal to the 36-year-old Kidd, who still has a home in New York from his years playing for the New Jersey Nets. The story further states that the Dallas Mavericks could easily top the money the Knicks have at their disposal for an offer to Kidd, so there is a chance that the financial terms won't shake out.
If the Knicks can't reach a deal with Kidd, they are said to be interested in making an offer to Milwaukee Bucks restricted free agent Ramon Sessions.
