Billy King will go under the knife Wednesday on a torn meniscus, having postponed surgery until the Draft and free agency were complete. Now, with the last big deal, Kris Humphries', out of the way, King decided to get the surgery out of the way too.
On two occasions, King had to get injections to mitigate the pain. Bobby Marks, who's been working the phone as well as the calculator with King, will fill in till his boss has recovered. Was heavy lifting of Prokhorov cash the cause?
Gary Sussman tweets, "Question ..which one of the Killer B's...Beck, Bontemps, Bondy or Boone..will show up in Billy's recovery room?..@NYDInternets early fave." Expect floral arrangements aplenty.
