The New York Knicks and Earl Barron have expressed mutual interest in re-signing with each other, according to a source.

"He wants to be back in New York. There has been a lot of interest, and that's with them and with them to us," the source said. "I think it's just going to be one of those wait situations, where I think the signing of Jeremy Tyler didn't really knock [Barron] out of it, but it slowed the process up for him for sure."

"But Earl wants to be a Knick. He's waiting for the Knicks to pull the trigger. He thinks that the Knicks will have a chance to win a championship, and he wants to be a part of it."

Barron played just one regular season game for the Knicks last season.

Barron appeared in seven games for the Knicks in 2009-10.
