The New York Knicks franchise is in a state of transition and are still looking for more ways to make their team more competitive for a potential lengthy playoff run. There is a lot of buzz going around in New York for who is the true best team in New York between the Knicks and the much improved Brooklyn Nets.

The Knicks do have a better bench which sets them over the top above Brooklyn. Depth is the one thing that gives the Knicks the chance to beat any team in the league on any given night. The only thing that the Knicks could do to put themselves in even better condition to win is to either sign or make a trade for a veteran guard to come off the bench behind Raymond Felton and Iman Shumpert.

A way to make certain that they are indeed the better team in New York the Knicks should consider signing veteran free agent guard Richard Hamilton to a short-term deal. According to Sam Amico Hamilton has been drawing interest from both the Houston Rockets and the Knicks.
