Default Need Some Changes

You Guys Really need to make some changes


PG - Marbury/Robinson/
SG - Francis/Crawford/Collins/Udoka/
SF - J.Rose/Richardson/Woods/Balkman
PF - Taylor/M.Rose/Lee/
C - Curry/James/Frye/Butler

FIRST..You guys need to get rid of Francis or Marbury my guess is if Philly want to give up Iverson go with that (Give up Francis)..or try and make some kind of deal sending Francis to Portland Or even Atlanta

Second..Get rid of either Richardson or J.Rose cause the both getting paided alot of money and you need to make room for balkman

other thought u can move fry to the power forward position

Good Pick ups from Free Agency

Al Harrington
Drew Gooden

our lineup is this.


6th man-crawford

i agree we need to trade francis unless the backcourt with him and marbury works out in preseason or whenver they get to see if it does. j.rose and mo taylor are expiring contracts i dont want to trade them i want them to stay here and let their contracts expire. malik, mo, jerome need to go for sure. francis is sketchy it depends on how well he does with marbury but id rather have crawford than francis anyways because crawford has proved to be good with steph as the starting pg. j. rose can stay because he did good when he came here and i like him and hed be a good backup for q. balkman and collins will get minutes for hustle and defense. if marbury and francis are traded, collins could be a good pg in teh nba and for the knicks.

If any team needs some changes, it's the Knicks. Portland in the west could use some too.

The problem with the Knicks is size and length of the contracts and with everyone coming off bad years, who is going to want these guys.

Just look at theses salaries:

New York Knicks Date # of total
Player signed years salary misc FA
Jackie Butler ......... 2/27/05 2 minimum '06
Ime Udoka ............. 4/6/06 1 minimum '06
Qyntel Woods .......... 11/6/05 1 minimum '06
Jalen Rose ............ 8/2/00 7 $92.88 million p-opt '07
Malik Rose ............ 7/26/02 7 $42 million p-opt '07
Maurice Taylor ........ 8/7/01 6 $48,750,000 '07
Steve Francis ......... 9/1/99,8/26/02 4+6 $14,124,582+$85mill p-opt '08
Jamal Crawford ........ 8/5/04 7 $55.44 million p-opt '09
Eddy Curry ............ 10/4/05 6 $60 million p-opt '09
Channing Frye ......... 7/2/05 4 $10,138,889 rc t-opt '08+09
Stephon Marbury .. 7/18/96,3/13/99,10/7/03 3+6+4 $5.67+$70.9+$76mill '09
Quentin Richardson .... 7/29/04 6 $43.5 million p-opt '09
Nate Robinson ......... 7/2/05 4 $5,576,499 rc t-opt '08+09
David Lee ............. 7/1/05 4 $4,566,033 rc t-opt '08+09
Jerome James .......... 8/2/05 5 $30 million '10

With Richardson's back, no one in their right mind would take him. Crawford shoots too much and at too low a percentage. The only light at the end of the tunnel would be that you hope that Rose and Rose don't take the players options (why wouldn't they?). Then with Taylor being done at the end of '07, then you got some salaries free.

New York would have to package Lee or Robinson with a bad contract to get things done but Thomas doesn't seem to want to do that.
