Default Name the Knicks team needs

Name your team's TEAM NEEDS, in order of importance.

What positions need to be filled the most?
What specific skills should the players at that position have to best compliment the players already there?

Post the top few most important needs the team has to fill this summer, via the draft/free agency/trades/etc.

In order of importance:
-A quality defender who can back-up the center and power foward spots. Get this through the draft, not a trade.

-A quality defending and slashing wing player. The better the passing skills are icing on the cake. Also grab this through the draft.

-A quality defending point man. This is a last resort. Passing and handle are mandatory but jump shot range past the three is not. Basically the worse his jumper the better he much be at defending, slashing, and passing. Again do it through the draft.

*If done trade Nate Robinson and some other pieces for either the wing or big listed above. Make sure the player coming in has no more than two years left on his contract or is under 27 and guaranteed to be one of the top 25 players in the league within the next three seasons.

First off we need a solid low post defender and rebounder. If we get a solid low post defender, many of our guards mistakes can be erased, plus our guards can take more chances on defense.

But we cant let a defender down low overshadow our big need for on the ball defenders.

I believe we need a playmaker, and this doesnt necessarily need to be your typical point guard size and type, I believe this person can be found in a three man, let Marbury play off the ball, and the playmaker bring the ball up and spread the ball around. This way Marbury can get his shots and he will still get his assists. A Jalen Rose type of player would fit here, but I dont know if Jalen is that guy, not a defender and is old. This playmaker needs to be strong minded, someone that can deal with Marbury. If we can find this type of playmaker, then I think we should trade Marbury.

Get rid of Steve Francis, Maurice Taylor, Jalen Rose. Actually it might be better to let their contracts expire this year to create some cap relief.

Default Knicks team needs!

Knicks team needs:

NEW OWNER!: They need a new owner that doesnt manage to take his daddy's money and completely flush it down the toilet for trash players! Need a new owner that is not an idiot that will go out and hire idiots to run the team down the toilet!

NEW GM!: They need a new GM that will not take anymore crappy, long term salaries on players who are overrated, overpaid, and over the hill! A GM that will not trade his next 2 high end first round draft picks so that he can sign and trade for a overweight, overrated, overpaid Center with a bad heart, can't play defense, can't pass, can't rebound, and can't play with any intensity! (I hope the Knicks stink bad enough so that they win the lottery to pick Greg Oden and watch as how the Bulls have the right to swap that pick!)

In the end they need a good, shotgun, and have Dolan, Isiah, LB, Starbury, Francis, and Curry stand in the same room and just open fire and shoot them all!
