JR Smith deal not yet completed, but seems imminent. #Knicks still need to open a roster spot to fit him. Curious to see that result.

What about Balkman ?

And I don't think it will be Douglas. We picked up his option recently.

They both do, I smell a trade.

I honestly do not think they will cut Bibby, even though he's the most likely.

Honestly I don't see whats not to like about this move. I understand he has a terrible basketball IQ, which I think is very very very important, but he can shoot the lights out when hes on...and what basically sold me is:

Were replacing Mike Bibby with JR Smith.

No matter what JR Smith does itd be hard to do worse then Mike Bibby.

NY post:


The Knicks will officially add free agent reserve shooting guard J.R. Smith to Linsanity today, making the hottest team in the NBA a deep team as well.

According to multiple sources, Smith, who played in China during the lockout and became eligible to sign an NBA deal on Wednesday, will be at the Garden tonight, but won’t make his debut until Sunday against the Mavericks.

The Knicks have to cut a player to make room for Smith and Renaldo Balkman, who has been out of the rotation since early January, is the expected candidate, according to a source. Coach Mike D’Antoni was never a big fan of Balkman, a throw-in to the trade with the Nuggets for Carmelo Anthony.

Balkman has one remaining year at $1.8 million and could have been an amnesty casualty if the Knicks were still going for 2012 cap space.

Wow, D'Antoni is not into energy players. Balkman is kind of a surprise to me. He has versatility too. Has you wondering if Balkman letting Isiah Thomas steal the ball at the end of the blowout earned him the dog house. D'Antoni is weird like that. Small Forward is one position we are not deep at.

I like guys who hustle, but that's pretty much all he can do. Hustle his way into stupid fouls. Balkman won't be missed.

Which is why I want to see Fields play SF more often.

So are we expecting Smith to come straight in and start or be used as bench scorer?

More than likely off the bench, but I would start him, and he'd be on the floor at the end of games.
