The New York Knicks may have made headlines for the moves that they didn’t make during the free agency period this summer, but forward Taj Gibson is one player happy to be where he is.
In fact, Gibson says playing for the Knicks is a “dream come true”.
“I just always had it in the back of my mind, it was always one of those places I wanted to go,” said Gibson, according to Zach Braziller of the New York Post. “I wasn’t scared of the opportunity. I was waiting for the right opportunity [to come here]. I just jumped on it. I know they’ve had a lot of tough years, but when you win games, the city loves you. I’m looking forward trying to compete and playing hard.”
Gibson, 34, grew up in Brooklyn, New York.
“It’s a dream come true and it’s a blessing, because I grew up a Knicks fan,” Gibson said. “To be back home around my people, it’s amazing.”

Wizards’ Isaiah Thomas Wants to Find Permanent Home
Washington Wizards’ guard Isaiah Thomas is looking to find a permanent home as he gets his career back on track.
Thomas is currently on a one-year minimum contract with the Wizards, and while he didn’t rule out a long-term deal with Washington, he did state his goal is on this long-term future.
“I want to be somewhere I can be three or four years,” Thomas said, according to Fred Katz of The Athletic.
“I was in Sacramento for three years. I was in Boston for three years. Even though that’s not a long time, I was comfortable there. My family was able to build relationships with people around the organization, people around the city. It just made things easier. So, what I am looking for — obviously, I want to get paid the most I possibly can, because I feel like I deserve that, but I also want to be able to be somewhere for a while.”
Thomas is averaging 13.2 points and 6.2 assists per game for the Wizards this season.
