If true, the idea that the Knicks FO entertained getting Knight is bothersome. I guess the Suns initiated. F*ck them and that garbage ass contract.

I'd like to get Bledsoe but I don't see why the Suns would deal him, other than they are a little thin at backup SG and CLee would fit space wise with Bledsoe and isn't paid THAT much.

even if it isnt true the knicks should be beating down the door of every team willing to deal a decent point guard , and jackson is a decent fit .

he can play point guard until ntilikina is ready and since the knicks just gave hardaway jr. 18 mil. for 4 seasons lee is very expendable

after ntilikina is ready to assume starting point guard duties jackson can be an offensive minded 6th man or play in a 3 guard line up because both hardaway jr and ntilikina are big enough to guard the next position up.

Reggie Jackson is a borderline cancerous player.


really?

i thought he was hurt last season ...its funny how players become cancers all of a sudden when their play dips a bit...I bet if his health rebounds all that other talk stops

Teams are contacting the Knicks about KOQ and Courtney Lee.

http://www.espn.com/espn/now?nowId=21-0677677454248121258-4

Ian Begley:

As the Knicks continue to look for a point guard this offseason, Brandon Knight is one name that came up in conversation with Phoenix recently, per league sources. The Knicks also talked to Phoenix about Eric Bledsoe, league sources confirmed. The Knicks' level of interest in Knight is unclear but it's reasonable to assume his name came up in talks surrounding Carmelo Anthony since his salary (roughly $44 million over the next three seasons) would be useful in such a transaction. The Knicks are searching for a veteran point guard to play in front of Frank Ntilikina and, outside of Anthony, the Knicks have also received interest in trade talks on Courtney Lee and Kyle O'Quinn, per sources. Knight, 25, averaged 11 points and 2.4 assists in 25 minutes per game in Phoenix last year. The Knicks' discussions surrounding Bledsoe were first reported by the New York Post.

After you guys trade Melo, you need to sign Ding (Mavs summer league team) and start him. You guys are going to be terrible and Ding-sanity would be next level amazing.

We better be getting one of those Miami picks if we take on Knight

Nobody is giving anyone a potential lottery pick for a salary dump

Are you a LAL fan coming here and saying we're going to be terrible?

I'm never happy. I'm a Knicks fans. Package deal.

Allowed? Say whatever you want. Just think it's ridiculous when fan of a team who is worse than us is actually coming here predicting we will be terrible and need to sign some kid to make our team worth watching.

I love how whenever you challenge someone on what they said, these posters call it being sensitive. If anything you're being sensitive that I disagree with your premise.

You don't have a firm grasp on your own team's reality to talk about another team needing a reason to watch. We got KP and a few other young guys we can look forward to developing this year.
