Free agent Mike Bibby is reportedly participating in a mini-camp with the Spurs this week.
Most of the players in attendance are hoping for training camp invites, and it's possible Bibby is trying to land a minimum deal with the Spurs. Even if he does latch on with an NBA team, his spot-shooting role off the bench won't be conducive to fantasy value. Tue, Sep 3, 2013 04:40:00 PM

Mike Bibby hopes to play one more year in the NBA, after which he may pursue a coaching career.

"I'm going to try to play another year," he said. "I've been working hard all summer, and we'll see if somebody picks me up." The 35-year-old PG was ineffective in his last stint with the Knicks in 2011-12, shooting 28.2 percent from the field while playing typically atrocious defense, and it's very unlikely that he'll make an NBA roster.

The Grizzlies are working out free agent PG Mike Bibby, sources tell USA Today's Sam Amick.

The jokes write themselves here, but Bibby would not have fantasy relevance while playing in a backup role for the team if signed.

Free agent Mike Bibby said he's preparing to play basketball this season.

"I'm getting ready for any call," he said. After starting postseason games for the Knicks last season, Bibby is looking for an opportunity in 2012.

Unrestricted FA Mike Bibby will not sign with a team before training camp.

However, Bibby's camp "expects him to sign somewhere." Considering he shot 28.2 percent from the field last season and just 31.8 percent from behind the 3-point line, it's going to be tough for him to land a guaranteed deal.

Unrestricted free agent Mike Bibby is "unlikely" to return to the Knicks, a source tells ESPN New York.

The Knicks don't need to retain Bibby after bringing in Raymond Felton, Jason Kidd and Pablo Prigioni in the offseason, and Bibby's best days are well behind him. He's still working out, though, and he'll likely find work at the end of a contender's bench.

Beat writer Alan Hahn suggests that the Knicks could bring back unrestricted free agent Mike Bibby for the veteran minimum.

Mike Woodson, who is expected to be promoted from interim to permanent coach shortly, has great trust in Bibby. The problem is that he'll be 34 on Sunday and is no longer a playmaker or defender. Bibby would be a third-string point guard at best.

Interim coach Mike Woodson said Mike Bibby will start in Wednesday's Game 5 against the Heat.

With Baron Davis (knee) out and Jeremy Lin (knee) doubtful, the Knicks are in dire straights. Bibby has averaged 20.4 minutes per game in the series so far, but managed just 4.2 points and 3.7 assists per game. Woodson would be better off using Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith as his primary playmakers.

With Baron Davis sidelined by a dislocated right kneecap, Mike Bibby could start at PG for the Knicks in Game 5.

Jeremy Lin may return to action on Wednesday, and we expect J.R. Smith to take on more ball-handling duties, but New York will still need something from Bibby. He made a critical 3-pointer from the corner to keep the Heat at bay on Sunday, a rare instance of clutch shooting after years of inexorable decline.

Mike Bibby started again in place of Baron Davis (flu) and finished with 12 points on 4-of-7 shooting (4-of-5 from deep) with two rebounds, four assists and two steals.

With Davis battling numerous injuries, the Knicks have turned to Bibby to pick up the slack and he has responded nicely thus far. Tonight's numbers are about the most you can expect from the veteran, though.

According to Marc Berman, Mike Bibby could start in the playoffs with Baron Davis battling injuries.

Berman calls Bibby "Woodson's ace in the hole," but we wouldn't go that far when talking about Bibby at this point in his career. The veteran did have eight assists with just one turnover on Wednesday and doesn't have limitations due to injury concerns, so it's not a shocking idea that Bibby could see more time moving forward.

Mike Bibby started for Baron Davis, who is bothered by several issues, including the flu, and had eight points, three rebounds, eight assists, a steal and two 3-pointers on 3-of-10 shooting in a win over the Nets.

This was essentially a home game for the Knicks, despite playing at New Jersey, and Bibby did a nice job of filling in for Davis. Davis has been highly ineffective with his back, neck and hamstring injuries, and it wouldn't be surprising to see Bibby get some more starts after this effort.

Mike Bibby played just six minutes against the Hawks on Friday, despite Baron Davis having to leave the game due to his hamstring injury.

It looks like the Knicks will turn to Iman Shumpert to play point guard in an emergency, as Bibby and Douglas are glued to the bench. That emergency could happen at any time, too.

Mike Bibby had five points and one assist off the Knicks' bench on Saturday, playing 10 minutes in the team's third consecutive win.

If this is all Bibby could muster with Baron Davis injured, there's obviously no reason to give him a second thought in fantasy leagues. Baron's absence mostly benefitted J.R. Smith (11 points on 4-of-12 shooting, with three 3s), who matched his season-high with 30 minutes played.

Starting at PG in the Knicks' new-look lineup, Mike Bibby had six points, two 3-pointers and three assists in 20 minutes.

This about sums up Bibby's fantasy appeal -- a handful of points, 3s and assists, and not much else. His role will be diminished even further once Baron Davis is healthy enough to start.
