This vote is pending if we move at least Jared Jefferies.

PF- Chris Bosh
SG- Joe Johnson
PG- TJ Ford/ Luke Ridnour

Those 3 spots are going to be our biggest holes and those guys are guys I think we should target. I like TJ Ford on being an effective starter, but his health is a risk. Taking in the fact that Rondo is gonna want big money I dont think wed have enough for him if we get those 2 guys up top. Luke Ridnour is a guy we can get for cheep who will also have starting experience. If he performs well this year then I say lets go for him.

Again, the best PG to get out of those guys in my opinion would be Rajon Rondo. But that would lead to one of the other 2 guys not coming.

PF-SG Combo seems to be big among people trying to predict what wed need. The 2 best possible combos are Wade+Amar'e or Bosh+Johnson.

I dont expect us to get Wade.

I actually think Amar'e might not want to come to New York either. He pretty much lobbied for Mike D'Antoni to get fired.

I think Roy got extended and Gay may have also.LeMarcus Aldridge is Portlands #1 priority to get resigned so scratch him too.Varejao just got a new deal i think too.

I'm obviously all for gettin LeBron or Dwade but realistically speaking,I would love to have Bosh,Outlaw and bring Camby back to NY.That would be a long, athletic front court with Chandler @ the 2,we'd be a super tall and athletic team.Only thing we'd need to address is the pg position.Which is why we should get one now.

Bosh Camby and Outlaw are realistic money wise too.

grab Randy Foye away from the wizards. he'll have less shots in washington because of arenas, butler and jamison. But he is a very good, young player in my opinion. He would have to turn into more of a passing pg tho. He sometimes plays sg right?
16,3 ppg
4,3 apg
3,1 rpg
I'd rather sign Rajon Rondo if he finally develops a solid jumper, because the Celtics dont have money.

Also resign Chris Duhon to bring him off the bench.


I totally agree with Marcus Camby, still a very good defender and rebounder. Could help this team out a lot. He is made for a run n gun system.

He still averaged 10, 11 and 2 in 08-09.


Sign Chris Bosh as our star.
I like your plans Franchize, so yes, also sign Outlaw.
and sign Morris Almond!
and sign Tyrus Thomas, just for defensive and ticket selling purposes.

pg: Foye - Duhon
sg: Chandler - Almond
sf: Outlaw - Gallinari
pf: Bosh - Hill - Thomas
c: Camby


We would still need a backup center.

I dont know what kind of paycheck Chicago is willing to offer to Tyrus Thomas.
He'd be a great fit on the Knicks. Runs the floor, plays excellent defense, rebounds the ball, can jump out of the building, amazing shot blocker and has lots of potential. Offensively very raw, and can be a dumbass at times.

The advantage of going after Foye is that he could very possibly be the second best (after Rondo) pg in the FA class. But he will be a backup for Arenas or be shifted to play out of position as a 2, which i highly doubt. This way the Wizards will never offer him the money he deserves. Plus a point guard is what we need most right now, and Walsh has to finally get his shyt together. This move could help us since we lost out on Sessions.

I think id rather take Foye at this point.

The problem with Rondo is his immiturity. Remember what happened the last time we signed an immature point guard?

And Rondo isnt even as good now as that immature point guard was then.

he is nowhere near the level Steph played when he got here.

I think if Rondo takes money over a quality team,he will get exposed.

Reality I dont think Wade or LBJ are going anywhere...

My first choice is Wade and Amare, I will settle for Joe and Bosh, my last choice is LBJ.

I wouldnt mind Rondo although most people think he is overrated...
