Knicks have almost no players period. What makes the Knicks appealing to any star FA is that they can go out and add all of that if one of them wants to come.
We have Douglas, Gallo, Curry, and Chandler right now. Curry is a trade chip that is going to be used to add a defensive player. Theres a 99% chance we bring back Bill Walker and Earl Barron.
So now your'e looking at a young group of players. Earl Barron is a perfect back up C and Walkers showed he can play a lot of minutes backing up the SG spot.
Gallo and Chandler have both improved every year they've been in the league. One of thems going to start and ones going to sit. If Gallo comes off the bench we have instant offense otb. If Chandler sits we have a versitle player who can come in the game and play defense on the 1-4.
And then Douglas is going to be a very solid player in this league. He plays 200% every minute. He disrupts a large amount of plays on defense and can pass and score. He just needs some experience to raise his knowledge of the game and get past some mistakes for a young player and he could be the perfect back up PG. Unfortunetly, he may have to start where I dont think he would be as good.
After these 6 guys we have the ability to bring in 2 max FA or a max FA and some good starters. And Eddy Currys contract which could be used to trade for a big man like Emeka Okafor or a pretty good package of defensive players. Don't forget the possibility's of sign and trading David Lee and probably Chandler and a pick for Bosh or S&T Lee for Parker to come in and play PG in D'Antonis fast paced system.
i reccomend we flip KMart for a legit Center, like Chandler or Dalembert or Okafor)
Terrible idea. Chandler and Dalembert just plain suck. They will block a shot or two, but KMart's man defense is superior. Dalembert is one of the stupidest players in the league. Okafor, well, I don't see what makes him any huge improvement over Nene. I'd rather keep Kenyon.
