Default Knicks need to waive Amare

And get serious about tanking.
This season is over.
Let Amare sign with a contender, like Atlanta.

No, they can use that spot to sign a younger player and develop that player.

I don't think Thanasis is an NBA player and I'm not sure that the Knicks do either. theres no real benefit to waiving Amare. There aren't any young potential all stars without a job waiting to be developed. They could sit amare if they wanted to and hope that they can get something for his contract but I don't think that they can.

They have lost five in a row. They don't need to damage the team for the sake of losing plus an expirer that big could lead to a deal that helps them.

It's unfotunate to say this but losing Amare isn't going to make them any worse. They are awful. That being said, they shouldnt cut him. I will also say, when's the last time an expiring contract was used in a big deal? It seems like those days are over.

The new CBA threw the monkey wrench in that.... but its still useful.

It's certainly no guarantee but a cash-strapped team may want out of a star's contract or a contender may see him as a good guy to have off the bench. May come to nothing but it won't hurt at all to see if they get a useful offer. What's the downside?

Yes I'm aware of that, that's why I said that.
