Interesting. I bet its possible to find some great passers that could average 7-10 apg, rebounders who could average 9+ rpg, athletes, or possibly even an nba level scorer that could average 18+ (all given adequate minutes of course). We should look in to it. We're in the position to now.
I would really like us to take a chance on Daniel Orton. He was stuck behind Dwight and Davis all year, also he had run ins with STVG. He was always going to be a project when he was drafted but it has been a while now and he could come on the cheap side. Look at OKC taking a swing at Thabeat, so it isnt as stupid as it sounds.
Looks like Jeremy Lin leaves NY for Houston. Signed an offer sheet today. I guess them signing Jason Kidd pissed him off. Kidd needs to be retired anyway. Dont know that the move was the best for the Knicks. I know speculation is NY will match the offer of Houston to keep Lin. But that will put them in a very difficult spot from a salary point. I understand if they want Kidd to mentor Lin, but they really need to cut payroll or they are going to flirt with a nasty Tax.

The Knicks will match Houston's offer and he will probably stay in New York

@AlexKennedyNBA Brandon Roy has agreed to a two-year, $10 million deal with Minnesota, according to sources.
If Roy deal is for >~$3M, Wolves would have to amnesty Manna From Heaven to give Batum his $11M/yr
@jwquick Brandon Roy has come to a verbal agreement with Minnesota according to a person in Roy's family
Cracks me up..... when did Minny become the place to go? We are where they were a few years ago and I'm thinking if we play it financially smart and start showing a winning attitude in our front office, we will be that desired place. Our fans are passionate & will pack the place out, it's just that 85% of them need to have a winning product on the court in order to go. We are definitely on the right path!
As for Lin, no way the Knicks don't match with that media attraction. Plus, Dolan and Cablevision have never shyed away from being in the luxury tax bracket. The sales on Lin himself offset their checkbooks too much to let him walk.
