Knicks president Donnie Walsh appeared to be waiting to add another backcourt player before he made a move with Marbury. And now he feels he has it in Roberson, a 6-2 combo guard who is playing for the Knicks summer-league team here and excelled in his debut, scoring 22 points, including three 3-pointers.

Roberson played for Memphis and Golden State before last season when he competed for teams in Jerusalem and Istanbul.

The signing will give the Knicks 16 players with guaranteed contracts -- one over the limit. The Knicks also have considered waiving center Jerome James, who played five minutes last season and still has knee pain.

Walsh is still looking for point-guard help through a trade.

The Knicks insisted there is no truth to a summer-league rumor that Marbury would be released by week's end. Marbury, who still could be traded, said yesterday he hasn't been approached. In fact, interestingly, Marbury has not yet dined with coach Mike D'Antoni, who has consulted several other veterans on whether they view Marbury as a divisive force in the locker room.

While he's been complimentary of all his guards, D'Antoni has spoken very little about Marbury, 31, this week and his apparent doomed status is a signal the Knicks are in clear rebuilding mode with an eye on another lottery pick. They view Marbury as a potential divisive force despite his exceptional skill level.

Roberson, who played at Florida, said contract details were being finalized. A source said the first year of Roberson's salary will be at the minimum for players in their third season ($790,000). Still to be determined is whether the second year is at the team's option.

Roberson's agent is Chris Lucci, who also represented Wilson Chandler, Isiah Thomas' last draft pick who excelled in the summer-league opener Monday with 26 points.
