NBA Free Agency 2011: Other Teams Interested In Anthony Parker

While the Cleveland Cavaliers are very much interested in bringing back veteran shooting guard Anthony Parker, Parker is also garnering interest from other teams around the league. According to the New York Post, the Knicks are one of those teams:

With free-agent forward Grant Hill looking like a long shot, the Knicks have expressed interest in Cavaliers sharpshooter Anthony Parker, The Post has learned.

Though the Knicks’ priority is a defensive center, they seem also intent on getting a 3-point-shooting small forward, a leader who can defend coming off the bench. Parker, who once played for Maccabi Tel Aviv, shot 38 percent from 3-point land last season, averaging 8.3 points.

If not Parker through free agency, the Knicks are supposedly interested in plucking from the glut of guards the Cavs currently have signed, if possible. In addition to the Knicks' interest in Parker, the Celtics are also said to be interested in his services.
