Mike Bibby will sign with the Knicks

Veteran Mike Bibby appears to be joining the Knicks. Some believe Bibby may be way past his prime, but he initiated this situation so maybe Mike D’Antoni’s style of play is the remedy he needs.

I’ve been trying for about six years to get him playing for (coach Mike) D’Antoni, but at the time this guy named (Steve) Nash was blocking us,” Falk told ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard. “I’ve always felt Mike would flourish in his offense.”

Bibby boasts career averages of 15.2 points, 5.7 assists, 1.2 steals, with a respectable 38.1 percentage from beyond the arc.

On Saturday, during the Knicks’ official introduction of Tyson Chandler, D’Antoni didn’t get into too many details about the potential Bibby acquisition.

I don’t know exactly where it stands, but that’s a good name,” the coach said. “That’s a veteran point guard that would be nice. We’ll see how that works out.”

He is scheduled to paid the veteran minimum: 1.4 Mil for one-year.

Was this the right move?
