This guy is going to play quite a bit. What does this mean for the lineup?
A new era or error?

I like the player but what you said is historical very accurate. In fact Burke could end up the same way but I think hes a good guy. Like he is mediocre but he doesn't have that delusional side where he still thinks that doing that will get him paid. Hes self aware is what Im sayin and he's pretty complimentary.

If thats any consolation. That's sad. All I could offer you was a mentality consolation not a skills consolation

Fine value signing, and yeah like others have said probably look to flip him at the deadline. He can be a gunner but decent enough 3PT shooter these days and passable defensively. There's a difference between signing a few of these guys and filling your roster with them like they did last year.

I'm personally happy they haven't signed many guys yet considering the crazy money being thrown around right now. Giving me 2016 vibes. Maybe we actually get to see some young guys play this year too. Only one that really hurt was malik which would've been great. We'll see what happens with FVV.

I won't judge this move on its own until free agency is actually over and we fill out the roster.

What you mean, you drink because you’re getting ready for Knicks free agency. That’s the recommended course of action.

Eerily reminiscent of how Scott Perry likes to target his old draft picks.

Gordon Hayward, Ed Davis, Alec Burkes...all Jazz guys.

So apparently our pool of players are Kentucky guys, CAA clients, and former Jazz players.

Right. But I timed it wrong.

We could have proceeded to getting right the f*ck out of hand.

This was on the line of being able to function like a human tomorrow.

I blame his wife, who wanted him up at 6 AM, to shop and stuff for Thanksgiving.

Normally, I'd have given him sh*t and we'd have carried on, but we are going there to eat on Thursday.

Priorities.

They mesh fine if they actually make other players better by providing space or moving the ball.

It's not about the length of the contract. It's the quality of the player.

The Knicks signed bad players last offseason that didn't compliment any of the young players had. Randal, Morris, Taj, Portis, etc.

There's always room for a guy that shoots about 39% from 3 and gets 4 assists per 36 within the flow the game.

Not super excited about this signing but signing a guy like Burks is way different than signing the dinosaur types we plucked from the $5 DVD bin last summer.
