The Knicks are going to have about $60 million in expiring contracts next year, plus they've got some decent young talent to package with those deals (like in the Steve Francis trade) so they should be able to do something big this offseason/before the trading deadline. If I had to put money on it I would say something involving Portland or Denver might happen.
Honestly.. I think Zeke might pull off a Pat Riley. Have Brown leave, then take over the Head Coach while still being the pres. of basketball operations. The team looks like a team thats built for Thomas, not a team that was built for Brown.
