Walsh eyes waived Raja
Knicks president Donnie Walsh said yesterday he would talk to Raja
Bell’s representative now that Bell has been waived by the Warriors.
Bell, the defensive guard who starred for Mike D’Antoni in Phoenix, will
become a free agent when he clears waivers today, but more important
Bell becomes a free agent this summer.
He is recovering from wrist surgery and could be ready for the final five games, but has told associates he may not want to come back this season.
Walsh told The Post on Sunday he would consider signing Bell to a 10-day contract as a goodwill gesture to express their long-term interest if Bell wants to play.
Bell made $5.2M this season and could be one of the Knicks’ mid-range signings.
