I was curious about who is going to take Ryan Anderson.
It makes sense now. Jazz would be only team willing to take that contract without huge compensation.

C'mon. Wiggins averaged 23ppg vs THjr 13 ppg (yes i know ppg is only one aspect but scoring is the best skill for both of these players). Oh has Wiggins is 3 years younger.

+100
Wiggins is already incredibly superior to THjr and he's younger by years, not months. The two are in the same league....the NBA, but that's where any comparison's end. Wiggins is a Ferrari compared to THjr, a nicely equipped Honda Accord. That take isn't as bad as the guy who brought up THjr being similar to Beal.....both are crazy, but you can be a fan of a team and not be blindly biased.

What would the Knicks have.....THjr and Noah or Wiggins....it's essentially the same. Wiggins gives you more than both of those guys considering Noah is nothing more than a corpse.

The Rox will still have to be sending out all future 1sts until 2022. No one is taking Anderson just because.

I'm not talking about stats. I'm talking about impact. Wiggins can average 30 points and it's the same exact impact. Anyone, with enough opportunity, can score points. By just adjusting minutes alone, if THJ were to play 37.2MPG, like Wiggins, he'd be at 19.76 points per game on better efficiency (15.67 shots for THJ vs. 19.1 shots for Wiggins).

Wait until this year when the Knicks play the hell out of THJ. Watch when all of his stats naturally increase due to playing 36 min per game. The difference won't seem nearly as big and his contract will be half as much.

Ty Lawson would be a good vet we can have for cheap. Yeah he had his off court issues but he definitely has the talent.

If any of the Knicks brass or Knicks employees happen to stumble in here and no one has signed Derrick Walton, we need to jump on that. While he is no vet, with our commitment to young guys he would be a great choice for a backup PG. He will get the team organized on the floor, he is great at getting rebounds, and is not afraid of the big moment. Derrick Walton is the answer not drunk Ty Lawson. He needs to work in a liquor store how much he be drinking.

I found he signed a FA deal with the Magic. Does that extend past the summer league or only for that?

I have been waiting on Orlando to say the signed him to a two way contract so I can stop my crusade. I think he was just signed for Summer League and they were attempting to sign him until they picked up Shelvin Mack.

We want a veteran PG to start, so that would be Ron Baker.
