Eddie House — Signed by the Heat to a guaranteed contract with a view to being a feared shooting specialist off the bench. Then cut by the Heat when it became apparent he hasn’t shot well enough to be a feared shooter for a couple of years now. There may still be a spark on the fire, but Eddie needs to chuck a log on it. (As well as not chuck.)

Eddie House - House should be one of the next players signed, because he is a proven role player. Maybe he's not been at his best these couple of years, yet it matters not; House's usefulness as a role player is proven. He's going to come in and shoot jumpshots, do nothing but score, and score inefficiently at that, yet provides a permanent option in the halfcourt offense because of the speed and accuracy of his three point jumpshot. That's all he does, and all he needs to do. Some teams will need that. Hell, my Chicago Bulls need that. Heading into his 11th NBA season, House is probably just a minimum salary player now, but that'll do.

On top of that, they traded Nate Robinson and Marcus Landry to the Celtics in exchange for the three expiring/unguaranteed deals of Eddie House, J.R. Giddens and Bill Walker. That deal saves the Knicks a little money, but will cost quite a bit for the Celtics who will have to pay Nate's $1 million playoff bonus (previously listed as unlikely), and then pay it again for tax. It's worth it, however, for the significant upgrade from House to he. (For that reason, it's kind of baffling why the Knicks did it. But none of it will matter anyway.)
