i dont see where we can get extra minutes for jr if he signs..
only way to make minutes is to send walker to the end of the bench
and tahts only likr 15 minutes or so
dantoni will still play bibby, but id rather give it to shumpert for those few minutes when giving lin some rest.
maybe make melo play some 4 towards the end of the quarter to go small to fit in jr/shump/fields some extra playing time.
Well since Indiana backed off it looks like its down to 2 reportedly.
The Knicks and Clippers "appear to be the frontrunners" to sign J.R. Smith.
Smith was known to be considering both teams, and these are the two clubs that have been mentioned most prominently in connection to Smith. The report says that the Knicks remain the "presumptive favorites" because of the salary the team can offer, but the Clippers are attempting to entice him with the chance at winning a championship ring. The report states that the process "could drag out a bit," and that a player option for next season could be important in Smith making a decision.

According to beat writer Frank Isola, the Knicks are "closing in" on a deal for free agent J.R. Smith.
Smith's Chinese Basketball Association season ended on Wednesday and he's expected back in the United States Thursday. The Knicks and Clippers appear to be the two finalists, but the Knicks can offer the most money. In New York, Smith would likely start off as a scoring reserve behind starting swingmen Landry Fields and Carmelo Anthony. He averaged 12.3 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.6 3-pointers and 1.2 steals in that role for the Nuggets a year ago.

Some of you are probably really excited about this.
Great call Arch!
JR was usually a sixth man contender every year and if hot, he is at an allstar level. If he isn't on, we got Shumpert. JR is only bad when you have no other choice but to live with his off days.
