Leon ROSE will Win Executive of Year, You Know Why? He Refused to OverPay Gordon Hayward/Fred Van Felton, Try for Powell 

Post#1 » by Knickkilla » Sun Jun 6, 2021 11:54 pm

Dame Dolla Lillard?

FORGETABOUTIT!!!!!!!

This is not Isiah Thomas's Knicks, Leon Rose and William Wesley will not mortgage the Future in trading RJ for a 31 year old non defensive selfish point guard who's got maybe a maximum 3 or 4 years of high level play.

Don't believe Me? Leon could have easily matched what the Charlotte Hornets were offering Gordon Hayward but refused to budge on more than like 25 Million a Year

Same goes for Fred Van Felton, there were reports that we wouldn't spend more than 20 Million a year for a point guard that can't finish at the Rim, boy did we dodge a bullet there too!



Sometimes the Best Moves to make are the ones you don't make!



So we can forget about overpaying for Lonzo Ball, think about it, He is not a Tom Thibodeau Point Guard!

He is not an attacking, finishing at the Rim Point Guard, he is just a sooped up version of Frank


What I think Leon will do is only sign and eventually trade guys that fit Thibs's system to a tee

There is reason why we looked into Terry Rozier at the trade deadline,

https://dailyknicks.com/2021/02/21/knicks-begleys-under-the-radar-trades/2/

He's a perfect point guard for Thibs's system and his defense has improved

https://www.atthehive.com/2020/6/25/21301803/2019-2020-charlotte-hornets-report-card-terry-rozier

Defensively, there were the usual question marks. Rozier is an aggressive on-ball defender with a lot of length despite standing at 6’ 1”, which allowed him to more-smoothly transition to defending opposing two-guards. The Hornets are generally not great at defense, but Rozier stood out as one of, if not the best guard defender on the team. His pick-and-roll navigation and off-ball helping/rotation can be a killer at times, but he does play hard and does a solid job of staying in front of his man when they have the ball.


With the Emergence of LaMelo Ball and having to pay Devonte' Graham, Scary Terry is the odd man out, so a trade with Charlotte could allow them to open up cap space to sign a player of a more pressing need, a big man/center like Richaun Holmes

Based on the past off season, Leon will not make big splashy moves just for the sake of it like Lillard or CP3 but instead more along signing and eventually trading for players that have that "Dog in them"

Being from Toronto, I have watched a ton a Craptors games and Norman Powell would be a really good Knick

He's an excellent 3 point shooter, great at attacking the rim and trys on Defense. He has been camping out along the 3 point line more since arriving in Portland but I think that's what Terry Stotts asked him to do because after watching a ton of Blazers games I saw how selfish Lillard and CJ McCollum are where they just hijack the offense to "get theirs"

What I hope we do is trade for Terry Rozier and Sign Norman Powell

Randle / Toppin
RJ / 2021 Draft Pick
Robinson
Powell / Quickley
Rozier / Rose / Vildoza

Maybe not the big splash we are all hoping for but a real Tom Thibodeau Team filled with Defenders, 3 Point Specialists and Slashers who have that Dog them

PS: Maybe trading for Collin Sexton would be great but he will cost alot of draft equity plus he's looking for a plus 100 million dollar extension and his defense is sub par (he does try though)

Rozier & Powell is upgrade from Payton & Bullock.
If Hornets send Rozier for Knox and 2nd then maybe.
Still that back court would be homeless version of Blazers.

We're not getting Rozier, and even if we did he's not a PG. He works well with LaMelo and Hayward cause he's really a small shooting guard.

If we dont come away with Conley, CP3 or Lowry or IQ finds a crossover and layup attack the rack starter game.. I'll be pretty disappointed if we don't have at least a very good to great pg next season.

Yes we'll all be happy to have Elfrid off this team and an upgrade over him but that's defintely not the bar.

I think I trust Leon & co. Just please don't give Thibs any reason or ammo to make asinine roster decisions.

PLEASE please please Mitch get healthy, shoot ALL off season, IQ glue yourself to D Rose the entire off season... Keep your dribble, develop a hesi-cross and mid range. RJ seek out Paul Pierce and emulate his entire game. He may be a hated Celtic but he was a bad bitch... I know hes prolly not the best role model now off the court but RJ is grounded and mature.

If IQ and RJ take a big jump we will be a much much better team. U add a Conley to that and it's Knicks in 5 vs Hawks.

A healthy Mitch is a huge part of this teams success.

He's too athletic and coordinated to just be an advanced Noel. I think he can expand his game and make an even bigger jump this season. He fixed the fouls, improved his overall defense and became the rock in the middle. With an actual point I think we'll see a rich mans deandre jordan.

With FVV this year we could of been the third seed. One of the biggest gripes is that we didn’t sign him. I guess we couldn’t have projected Randle’s leap, but still.
