Bibby Joins Knicks

In Free Agency on December 12, 2011 at 7:24 pm

ESPN reports

Mike Bibby’s agent, David Falk, confirmed that the former Miami Heat point guard and 13-year veteran will sign with the New York Knicks on a one-year deal at the veteran’s minimum of $1.4 million.

“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.”

Not a fan of this signing.

Mike Bibby has very little left to offer. He is a major defensive liability and a non-rebounder. He is a solid decision maker and floor leader offensively but his lack of quickness renders him just about useless as a playmaker. In terms of offense, he is solely a stand still shooter at this juncture in his career. Overall, he takes a lot more off the table (defense, rebounding) than he adds (offense).
