I assume they wanted that two way that wooten was signed on.

Yeah .. they probably want that two way for the guy they signed with the #33. oh wai...

They just undrafted free agent myles powell, thats one right there

I really like him so not throwing shade, but I do nonetheless have a quip: He can sign in Golden State and take over the Klay Thompson role.


Good one.

Waiving Payton? Really? He was the only PG who looked half-decent. Dumb move imo. Who the hell can play point? Frank is awful.

I'd be super surprised if Dot doesn't find a place as at worst a 20min bench player (7th/8th man) somewhere in the NBA. He might be a Courtney Lee style starter somewhere.

Bullock's contract is tradeable. The others (Payton, Portis, Taj) aren't. I'm not saying they should/will be out of the league, but the Knicks overpaid last year and can't recover by selling them on.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that the Knicks' starting point guard is not yet on the roster.

and he fits better with RJ because he can play on an off ball.

He will be an overpay and I would rather not sign anyone and tank...but assuming its an either or situation where we are going to trade for Westbrook or sign FVV (I am signing FVV everyday of the week over RW).

I was looking for the information, not the justification...

Read on Twitter


Looks like he does and we may bring Portis back.

I haven't been on the main forum page in a second but I don't even know if there are appreciation threads are there? What a grim era.

You’re lying! There is no better pg out there and we’re capped out!

That appears to be an "Exhibit 10" contract.

How much cap space do the Knicks actually have as of right now?
