I think so. Knicks gave Woodson an extension that went through the 2014-5 season which was right before Phil Jackson was hired then fired the Raymond Felton defender (while warring against JR Smith and Beno Udrich).
Knicks are also paying for Derek Fisher AND Phil Jackson.
And they'll be paying DJ Jazzy Jeff Hornacek who is looking like the next Mike D'Antoni. Jeff needed not 1 but 3 point guards: Isiaiah Thomas, Goran Dragic, and "Drew" Bledsoe. Pretty much 3 of the best, most dynamic scoring guards in the league to make his system (if you call it that) work.When Thomas and Dragic were gone, his offense collapsed and M. Morris almost choked out Jeff. He'll get choked out Sprewell style before it's all said and done.
The Knicks don't have one battle tested NBA point guard that the veterans trust. That'll make it really hard for the Knicks to move forward but they're talented enough to just miss the playoffs.
This new GM will learn some things about how different front offices operate but he has nothing to work with. We're not getting picks unless it's our young and most talented players.
