Default What I would do with the Knicks if I were Zeke.

It would go without saying I would get rid of Jerome James and Francis. I would try and get a 2nd round pick for Francis.

I would draft one the SG's available to us at #23 this draft. As long as he has skills and can shoot.

I would fire myself and hire a real coach.

I would keep Malik Rose as a player coach.

I would start Marbury and Collins.

I would work with Frye and straighten the guy out. Figure out an offense were both Curry and Frye can work together.

Tell Q to lose about 10-15 pounds and lower his body fat content. That will help his back.

I would see if I could trade Jefferies, Nate and maybe Frye(ouch) for the right player and/or draft picks. It would have to be special to part with Frye, this guy has too much upside.

If I was Zeke, I would do the draft and then fire myself as coach and GM.

I think Zeke should force him to watch the movie 300 everyday in the off-season... :)

- Buyout Francis, James, and Jefferies

- Draft Arron Afflalo

- Use Frye to get another pick in the draft and select another guard.

- Step down from the head coach position, BUT DON'T LET HERB WILLIAMS COACH.

- Hire Patrick Ewing to work with the big men, since he did wonders with Yao in Houston.

- Sign no more MLE contracts until we have breathing room again, salary cap wise.

it is impossible to trade a player making 16 mill for a 2nd round draft pick.. would malik rose rip up his contract? and whats said with frye is easier said than done. it seems some people think that having frye suck was part of the plan this year.

Default Re: What I would do with the Knicks if I were Zeke.

I was saying that about Francis half tongue in cheek. I would happy if we got some white cotton towels for him.

As for Frye, if something is not done with this guy, he will disappear and we will get nothing for him in a trade in the near future. A good coach will make this guy into a really good player who will come back and kill us every time he plays us.

He has too much upside and talent to be playing this badly. I blame that on Frye himself and Isiah. He played better under Brown because Brown never had the offense go through Curry. That's what's killing Frye, he's confused and has lost confidence in his abilities and game too.

If I were Zeke, I would shoot Jeffries, James, and Francis, then shoot myself.
