Former Knick Oakley welcomed back to Madison Square Garden

NEW YORK (AP) — Former Knick Charles Oakley is being welcomed back to Madison Square Garden and the team’s home games after his ban from the arena was lifted.

Oakley was arrested at a game last week and banned by Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan after an altercation with security guards.

The sides have reconciled after a meeting orchestrated by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and Hall of Famer Michael Jordan.

But Oakley says he wants an apology before returning.
