Now that the “Jackson Five” has been set, Knicks brass will attempt to build a bench, starting with signing a backup point guard behind Derrick Rose. Phil Jackson and general manager Steve Mills have spent almost all of their cap space.

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said he hopes the choice is a player who can fill in as a starter in case of an emergency. The Knicks are expected to monitor Rose’s knees, perhaps resting him on occasion on the second night of back-to-backs.

Some of the intriguing players still unsigned are Ramon Sessions, Aaron Brooks (who has played in the triangle), Jordan Farmar, Randy Foye, ex-Knick Raymond Felton, Kirk Hinrich, Mario Chalmers and Seth Curry. The Knicks have been told they would need more cap space to ink Foye.
