As of Thursday morning, there was still mutual interest between the Knicks and Reggie Bullock to negotiate a new deal after a medical issue hampered their original agreement, per SNY sources.
Bullock's agent, David Bauman, and the Knicks continue to work together on a new agreement for the six-year veteran.
The medical issue that caused a hiccup is unclear, but Bullock has dealt with plantar fasciitis in the past. The Knicks originally agreed to a two-year, $21 million deal with Bullock that contained a player option in Year 2.
The re-worked deal could lead to New York landing Marcus Morris in an unusual sequence of events.
The Knicks have long been enamored by Morris, according to a source, and would have high interest if the forward reneged on his agreement with San Antonio. ESPN reported that Morris is contemplating backing out of his Spurs agreement and would have interest in New York. Yahoo reported that the Knicks have made an offer of $15 million over one season to Morris. That's more valuable than the two-year, $20 million agreement Morris had with San Antonio.
