They're lacking talent at the Center spot and a solid coach.

14.2 million is a whole lot of money. If Billups is healthy he will be worth it.

Anything they did otherwise with him would save them money but not help the Knicks talentwise. Unless one is an accountant, they did the right thing. He's also a HUGE expirer now. And does not affect the 2012 cap space.

Like expected.

That also means Walsh will probably stay.

Trade bait, hopefully. They need a real point guard, not a 6'3" shooting guard.

That's fine, Knicks can do with Billups, but they need a 5 playing next to Stoudemire. And fire D Antoni!
