Ex-Net Bostjan Nachbar to Work Out For Knicks

Al Iannazzone tweeted it:
 Ex-Net Bostjan Nachbar is expected to work out for the on Tuesday. Nachbar played for D'Antoni in Italy.
I don't even know too much about Bostjan Nachbar, but it sounds like he could: a.) Be a great vampire, b.) Produce chocolate bars, c.) Be a DJ at those bars made entirely of ice, or d.) Be a basketball player!

The answer is d. evidently!

Bostjan is from Yugoslavia and played in the NBA from 2002-2008. He's 6'9" and has been playing overseas the last two years. Word is at some point he played for Mike D'Antoni (I'll get more on that later). During his time in the NBA, he played for the Houston Rockets, New Orleans Hornets, and New Jersey Nets. For his career he averaged 7.1 ppg on .406 FG% and .375 3FG%, to go with 2.6 rpg. His playing time throughout his career was very eratic, judging by his total games played and mpg.

Overall, he doesn't seem like the kind of guy the Knicks should be targeting, but we'll see what becomes of his workouts.
