Steve Mills Outlines The Knicks Plan: FULL REBUILD 

Post#1 » by 2010 » Sat Jul 15, 2017 7:39 am

"Today is a new day for this franchise," Steve Mills said in the news release. "Scott Perry will immediately begin to put together a basketball operations department that is among the best in the league. We will all be united in implementing our strategy, which is to build our team by developing young players, emphasizing athleticism, length and defense. We have several rising young stars in the organization and we expect to add more young talent to this core. Our message to our fans is clear: we will be disciplined in sticking to this strategy, hold our players and staff accountable to the high standards that we have set for ourselves, and deliver results."

Can't ask for much beyond this as an opening message. Let's turn this franchise around!

Will be difficult to add more young talent with the amount of money showered to Timmy.

Who are even the tank-contenders? Nets (unintentionally), Bulls, Magic, Suns, Pacers, Hawks? Anyone else? Lakers probably won't suck enough to be in contention, same for Kings.

Too many of them on the East, making it that much harder to end up with a bad enough record. Knicks' lineup should still be able to "compete" with them. Unless KP makes a giant leap and breaks out.

Just no Bledsoe (or anyone similar) please.
Step 1: Trade Melo for draft picks and scrubs.
Step 2: Resign Rose for another year.
Step 3: Make Noah & Rose play 40+ minutes every single game in 2017/18.
Step 4: Get lucky in the lottery and draft Doncic.
Step 5: ...
Step 6: Profit/Championship!

Not really. Phil didn't emphasize athleticism since he was stuck in pre Dantoni basketball. He brought Noah in etc. I think there are enough differences there...

Yeah, he played a bit of mindgames, but regarding the one he played on Melo, I'd say paybacks are a Bitz.

Fair enough, but the plan being rebuilding and youth, not so much the athletic part - well, KP sure B Athletic though. And if what you say is really the new plan, then that means Willy is gone and Frank might not be that guy (it will take him 2 years or so to really know but I think he will be über athletic once he fills out.)

I think they would consider trading Willy yeah. I like Willy but not sure he fits in as a starter. If they keep him in bench they need to clear some playing time for him by trading other dudes. Frank definitely fits the plan.
