Rejoice! Another year of blown lay-ups, taking charges, and weird teeth and lips!Can confirm that Jared Jeffries is returning to Knicks. Fans may cringe, but it makes sense on many levels.
But really, Jeffries will most likely only sign a 1-year deal, and the Knicks could do worse, believe it or not. Jeffries has almost no offensive game, but he's valuable on defense. He can guard all 5 positions, is great at taking charges, and can help the Knicks secure rebounds with his strange ability to tip balls back out after a missed shot. If nothing more, he's good insurance to have on the bench.
So welcome back, Jared! He seems so happy!
