I figured they'd potentially strike out, but then mitigate the damage by not signing guys to stupid contracts. If only they just signed vets to 1 year deals and left open their roster to accept trades for stars/sign FA next year. RIP. All that tanking and all those good moves by Mills for nothing. Kind of shows how much the owner matters in the NBA. If the Nets and Knicks swapped owners, would it be crazy to assume that Kyrie/KD/DJ sign in NYK instead of in Brooklyn?
It's a very solid 10 seed team, maybe they'll get lucky in the lottery next year and end up with Wiseman.
awful take. They already had young developing players at 4 out of 5 positions:
PG: DSJ, Ntilikina
C: Mitchell Robinson
they just added 24 y/o PF/C Randle: 21-8-3 34% from three and 23 y/o PF Portis 14-9 39% from three. And they did it by signing them to responsible contracts.
Do people not realize young players take time to develop and gel? No, they don't. Because these geniuses are laughably writing off 19 y/o Knox as we speak. You know, the guy who shot 34% from three and is met with scorn? Meanwhile wOndErBoy Doncic shot 32% from three, was top 10 in turnovers and easily one of the worst wing defenders in the league and he's "generational".
Knicks are finally doing things right and casuals are lambasting them for it.
