The good news for the Knicks is that now that we have bought out Ulrich and MWP, we get to bring in two stiffs that either no one else wanted or that haven't played all year. We could have Copeland on the team but Woodson, in his inifinite wisdom, demanded that the Knicks carry 4 point gards this year (plus Chris Smith earlier), even though he was going to play Felton huge minutes, come hell or highwater. Its not like the Knicks played their best basketball of the year when Ulrich started and Murray backed him up through the Texas trip. Its not like we can use a guy like Copeland off the bench, a big that can score from anywhere on the court. We have Melo and he will carry us.


If the Sixers buys out or waives (if they could) Granger because you know, dude might actually cause them to win games, would the Knicks consider him? Him on SF and Melo on PF might be a good combo? Granger seems healthier now and he could probably provide decent minutes for the Knicks though I am not sure how he is defensively these days.

His mobility is pretty limited. He's nowhere like the same guy he was 2 years ago. Time has ravaged him a bit.

JR Smith is such a douchebag.

Melo and the Knicks keep talking about how they need a second scorer but what they really mean is they need someone who can score whenever Melo decides to give up the ball,but no score so much as to take the spotlight away from Melo (See: Jeremy Lin). granger would make sense in the short term, those two have similar games so not sure how that would play out over a season. Also, the Knicks will still need a starting caliber point guard that can dish the ball to everyone and not give the ball up to Melo immediately. Part of the succes last year was J.Kidd moving the ball away from Melo, getting others involved. The best thing that can happen to the Knicks is that Melo leaves, then they would be forced to do the inevitable (rebuild). That would bring in a new coach, a new system and a reevaluation of the team.

If you follow the Knicks, you would see that Bargnani has not been a bust (just used horribly by Woodson), they had options at PG which they refused to use (T. Murray) even while Felton was crapping out, the SG situation is an issue as Woodson has destroyed Shumpert and will eventually do the same with Hardaway, Chandler is worth more to them as a trade chip than as a player at this point as he hates Woodson's defensive schemes and has been rendered ineffective by them. So while they are busy worrying about resigning Melo, the real issue is who will be coaching the team. If Melo leaves, there are quite a few good players available for less money, where you could still grow your team and have money left over for the '15 free agents. But Dolan has made it obvious that they will break the bank for Melo.

Anyone see the game last night, I lost count how many times Felton wound up guarding Nowitzki (and the same thing at last years playoffs, Knick guards guarding West/George) yet Woodson refuses to change :shrug:

It was turrible. The guarding of Carter was also ridiculous. Dude was hitting 3s at will and they kept giving him space.

Who do you guys think the Knicks could sign if Melo doesn't resign? I mean realistically, I know a lot of people wants to play for the Knicks off the market alone but I am not sure who can.

I am thinking about the same predicament with the Lakers, sometimes it seems like it would have been better if Kobe took less money but then again without anyone else committing to join the team (like Lebron, Wade & Bosh agreeing to smaller salaries to join up) then I am not sure anyone would actually take less than what they offered him. After this year, only Nash and Kobe are the only ones locked in but I could see Lakers just moving Nash next year because dude hasn't really played enough and that experiment should have been done a long time ago.

But right now, I can't think of anyone who both teams could sign. Really wish the Pacers bombed this year and long shot but George could have considered the Lakers next year.

well, if the Knicks look at it as a 2-3 rebuild plan (assuming Melo does not resign), for next year I would not do anything too crazy. Granger, Deng, Stephenson are all on the market and none require Melo money. I don't think any of those guys can carry a team by themselves but I think they make a great piece. A Deng playing small forward with guys like Hardaway, Shumpert, Chandler makes for a nice team that won't be any worse than this years. Then you head into 2015 with a lot of big name free agents and a lot of money. You can trade Chandler for a decent PG or a good defensive big. Then you go all out for a Aldridge or a Love. Aldrige/Love at PF, Deng at SF, Hardaway/Sumpert as your SG will be better team in 2015 then whatever the Knicks will put together at that time if they resign Melo.

The Knicks are definitely going to sign Lebron.

NYK just signed Earl Clark, decent wingman I guess. They should go after Jimmer next if they want a shooter to stretch the court that isn't mentally challenged as JR Smith.
