The New York Knicks had interest in Dion Waiters in free agency but he ultimately decided to re-sign with the Miami Heat. Waiters signed a four-year, $52 million deal to stay with the Heat.
Waiters met with Steve Mills during the offseason.
"They were talking, they were trying,’’ Waiters told The Post. "My agent was talking to them more than I was."
The Knicks eventually moved on to sign Tim Hardaway Jr.
"It was close to home and it’s New York, too," Waiters said. “It wouldn’t have been bad. It’s New York, the Garden. I went to Syracuse, man. So it’s like cool."
