Patience a friend to Knicks fans

Steve Adamek of the Bergen Record reports (via blog):

It’s more than two months until July 1, which means the Knicks and their fans will need a lot of patience.

Patience when Marcus Camby, a likely free-agent target, decides to re-up with Portland for two more years.

Patience when Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo proclaims that Chris Bosh can expect a max-salary offer from his team.

Patience when Dwyane Wade says the Heat are “in the driver’s seat” when it comes to his future.

Patience if LeBron James says anything suggestive (or definitive) about staying in Cleveland.

That’s the problem with these next two-plus months. While the Knicks can’t do anything (officially, anyway) in terms of recruiting members of the upcoming free-agent class, those members’ teams can sign them to extensions or new deals to keep them off the July 1 market.
