Who is there to sign? What player is gonna change the Knicks fortunes? The only signing they should make is on players under the age of 22-23 who can possibly develop.

Better to save the money and not make some irrational signing like we did with Noah last year who'll be on the book for a few more seasons. Lets see what's available next off-season to combine with another high draft pick and our young core of KP/Willy/Frank. I like this strategy and it's a sign that the team has taken a different direction.

Overpaying for role players when the team doesn't have the talent to compete is how you end up like the Knicks in the first place.

Only thing I want to see is Rose gone. Melo gone would be a nice touch as well.

I honestly think they're making it uncomfortable for those 2 with the idea that it's KP's team now and they are re-tooling with picks......... who knows what those idiots in the front office are thinking.

Because if they Sign free agents, Melo might get excited and stay. Sign no one and hope he leaves

Honestly, who's running the front office right now? I wouldn't be surprised if there's some sort of internal power struggle of who should be making the calls right now. Or perhaps all their resources are tied to finding a new regime and everyone in the front office knows they'll be losing the jobs at some point.

Nope. Steve Mills is Jimmy's right hand, and has been part of the front office for many years. Mills is handling executive decisions until they find a new VP. Jax wanted Mills gone, but Dolan would hear none of it (which is why Rambis had a job). THAT was the power struggle going on for the last few years - it's over now.
