Besides, the Knicks should be getting draft assets taking on all that salary not giving it up.
CP isn't making them a title contender, sure, he makes them a playoff contender but it would be 2012 all over again with short term middling success on the back of old players isn't a recipe for long term success. Then Melo along with Paul? C'mon man that banana boat has sailed.
The new management seems to be trying the same failed formula for disaster that has doomed former Knicks management.
We'll see how it goes, it's all rumors right now and who knows how it will end up.
Maybe the Knicks get CP and draft assets because Rose is slick like that.
Maybe Melo gets vetmin, is a stretch 4 that doesn't overdribble so actually balls out.
Maybe the FO make the right picks and get some great youth.
Maybe they rent some cap space for more draft assets and get useful vet(s).
Maybe Thibs gets them playing better than any of us could have hoped.
Maybe the coaching staff finally gets the development from the stagnating youth.
Maybe next year creates an environment that is attractive to elite FAs
Maybe all my maybes are delusional and I need to stfu
