The New York Knicks have already filled up their 15-man roster in free agency. They seem to have a set group ready for the coming season although some roster changes could happen along the way. This is the scenario that comes to mind with reports that the Gotham-based squad will be working out Malcolm Delaney.

If his past NBA history is to be considered, the 30-year-old guard's performance hardly impresses. However, he did unravel good numbers during his stint in China last season. He suited up for the Southern Tigers and averaged 19.4 points, 6.1 rebounds and 5.6 assists. These were a far cry from his stint with the Atlanta Hawks where he normed 5.7 points, 1.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 127 games.

According to Sportando, the Knicks are scheduled to work out Delaney in the coming week. It is possible that had coach David Fizdale may have seen something he likes about the 6-foot-3 guard. But how will he squeeze in another player in a full roster?

Looking at the guards on the Knicks roster, they have Dennis Smith Jr., Elfrid Payton, Frank Ntilikina and Kadeem Allen. From that list, the only name that surfaced in trade rumors the past months is the 8th overall pick of the 2017 NBA Draft.

A lot of this has to do with his less than impressive performance and there was a growing belief that he would be traded by the 2019 NBA Draft for the Knicks to get their hands on a first-round pick, the New York Post reported. Nothing of the like happened and the Frenchman remains in New York.

In terms of NBA performance, Delaney and Ntilikina practically have the same output. The 6-foot-6 guard played in 121 games with career averages of 5.9 points, 2.2 rebounds and 3.1 assists. The only difference is that Delaney is older and showed he can jack up his numbers if given the opportunity - referring to his China stint.

It is possible that the Delaney workout is nothing more than to see if he can be an improvement to the guards already on the roster. If not, the Knicks could be cooking up a trade with the 6-foot-3 point guard/ shooting guard on standby.
