Sorry bro, I'm with Blackfeet. We can sign bench players once we get some real talent on our squad. I'm not ready to invest in anybody who can derail the tank unless they have potential to be here long term.
My idea was more about getting him in for next year, not what games he'd have won this year. It's not a big deal, I don't care that much, but the Knicks could use some PF depth, considering they have two SF's masquerading as PF's on their roster and that's it. And KP isn't making it back next year and if he does, it's for like 25 games. It's all good. This season is wasted and next year will be too. A smarter team would have ensured they'd have picked 5 or up this year and next, but it's the Knicks, so for two lost seasons, they'll have two picks around 9 and 10 to show for it. Awesome front office.
With KP being out most of next year as well, why wouldn't we want to trot out a younger team and try to develop them instead of signing booker and have him help us win a few more meaningless games?
Next year needs to be an extended tryout for young players imo.
Sounds like a great idea until you realize that CLee, LFT, THJr and Kanter are all under contract. That's 3/5th's the starting lineup that isn't "young guys", plus a key rotation guy, unfortunately, in LFT. And Beasley might get resigned.
There isn't going to be any "extended tryouts" of young guys, except at PG, where there will be no choice, a good thing for once.
All I was stating is it would a decent roster move, no matter what, for a team that doesn't really have a PF under contract. Sorry, Beasley and LFT don't really count. Maybe Beasley. Sorry, Hicks and Hayes are bad.
