Eddie Jones
 
It is obvious now that the Grizzlies are going to buy out Eddie Jones' contract. Right now the Knicks only have 3 guards in the rotation. That is not enough. I think if we could sign him for dirt, then he would be a solid addition to the team for the time being.

Discuss.

Anything is possible for the Knicks. The dirt cheap part is the thing that might make an addition like him work for the Knicks. Maybe a 10 day contract? I know the guy is a slasher, something the Knicks need. Plus, he's a tall SG and can defend a bit. I wouldn't mind him over Francis.

Any way we can dump Francis for Jones? Ill even be willing to give up Nate and a first rounder!

if they we didnt have as much gaurds then yes with out a dout but we have to much gaurds.

MetsPackers 01-15-2007 05:03 PM

They are probably going to buy out his contract, so picking him up would probably cost very little. But we wouldn't have to give up any players to get him. A 1-year 2.3 million dollar contract seems fair.

Yes Jones is the type of player we need.

A professional and he understands his role. He's also been on a lot of winning teams. He's a tall SG, I think he's 6'6" with a good span and good overall skills.

If we are going to the playoffs he would be a good addition.

The only reason that we have 3 gaurds in rotation is cuz Nate is being punished lol...dont worry nate will come back and we will have 4...with 4 forwards(Lee,Balkman,Jeffries and Frye) and 1 center.

We need an athletic small forard with good defense that is quick footed. We have no one who fits the bill on that.

bigdaddybluesman 01-20-2007 09:24 AM

I think we have that in Balkman.

Maybe right but he gets no run because of the other JJ(both our JJ's suck)

We're buying out Steve Francis, so bringing Eddie Jones in won't be a problem. He's approaching 36, so we're not inclined to give him 34+ minutes, thus allowing our current guards and wing players to develop.

HaNdLe ThE RoCk 01-20-2007 04:22 PM

I'll bring him in, anything for francis to leave. I'll tell memphis right now jones for francis and get the deal done.

He's a 6'6 wing player even though he's old we can still use him just like you said.. he won't be expecting big minutes
