Ty Lawson could land with the New York Knicks if he can work out a buyout agreement with the Houston Rockets.
The Rockets and Lawson are reportedly negotiating a buyout, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. If waived by Houston, Lawson is expected to consider the Knicks, who wants a starting point guard in the current season and the next seasons.
On Friday, Lawson also gave clues about his next NBA team on clues on social media Twitter:
With New York, Lawson will be reunited with former Nuggets teammate Carmelo Anthony, who played for Denver from 2009 to 2011.
The Knicks feature Jose Calderon, Langston Galloway and Jerian Grant in their point guard rotation. Adding Lawson this season can help their goal of making the NBA Playoffs and he can also be their starting point guard for the long term.
Lawson has started in 12 of 51 games for the Rockets so far this season. He averages just 6.0 points, 1.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 22.8 minutes per game in the 2015-2016 NBA Season.
Lawson’s numbers has been struggling in Houston compared to his time with the Denver Nuggets when he was the starting point guard from 2009 to 2015. In his final year in Denver, he averaged 15.2 points, 3.1 rebounds, 9.6 assists and 1.2 steals per game.
