Would like to have seen them stick around but when you gotta makes cuts you gotta make cuts.

I really don't see the logic in this.

I don't get it. I realize someone had to go because of how many players the Knicks had, but I believe they cut the wrong guys.

IT is not about about to admit his $30M Jerome James blunder and the Knicks hope they can eventually trade his contract for cap-room considerations.

Like I said on the main board, it's basic math.

Jerome James contract is guaranteed and pays him more than Nichols or Jordan would make COMBINED. It's that simple.

Also lets not over-rate Nichols and Jordan now that they are gone. I remember reading these same type of overreactions when Maciej Lampe was traded.

I can understand why the Knicks cut Demetris Nichols and Walker Russell, Jr but why the hell did the Knicks trade for Jared Jordan and then waive him. Do the Knicks like screwing up money or what? I'm like everyone on the Knicks forum buyout Jerome James big injury-prone ass.

I think what they are going to do is have him get his knee operated on. If I am not mistaken there is insurance on players and their contracts concerning injury.

Once it has been proven he has a knee injury they buy him out with an injury settlement, some of which is paid back to the team by the insurance on the contract.

They're not as stupid as you think, they only seem that way.

I think Nichols might come back to haunt them or they made an under the table deal that when they clear the roster from James they will resign him.

They have made sports less about getting the right players and more about contracts. That's what happens when the lawyers take over.

Nichols best case scenario is Voshon Lenard. Good player but nothing more than a role-playing starter. Knicks will not lose sleep over game-planning against him.

There is no telling how good or bad Nichols will be. I like him and think he will play in the NBA for another team.

Bottom line is that NOW he is not ready to contribute substantial minutes to the Knicks and he refused to go to Europe for a year to learn and improve.

The Knicks feel they need players who are ready to play now, or at the very least to challenge their 9-10-man rotation in practise.

Nichols was not there yet!

Right don't bash Nichols for not following what was agreed and go play in europe consting 2rd pick to the knicks, bash Isiah for not conceding to a rookie. If it wasn't Isiah nobody would know Nichols, but now it's seems he is poised to be the GOAT.

Knicks have 5 PG, and 2 Centers. I makes more sense cut the sixth PG then the 3rd center.
