Welllllll, seeing as a max contract ranges from I believe 25%_35% of the cap, 4 max contracts would bring that to about 110% of the cap. Sounds like a good starting point lol.


2.) 11 Oct 2018 17:53:38
4 max contracts? WOW. You can take Irving out of the mix. Probably Durant, too. Down to two, IF they can acquire Butler. maybe maybe not. Now your down to one Max. Which is more likely unless Porzingis doesn't want to be in NY anymore.


3.) 11 Oct 2018 23:54:38
In this situation it's doable. After all trades and season Knicks well have about 64 mill in cap so it can work Butler bird rights will only take up 22 mil and they can give Irving and Durant 32 each or at least 30 each. Go over cap to resign Butler and prozingis.


4.) 12 Oct 2018 10:25:43
Ya just max everybody don’t have a bench hire Thibodeau when he's fired. really well thought out I like it.

Knicks Future Plans

Timberwolves get Tim Hardaway Jr., Courtney Lee, Lance Thomas, and a Future 1st Round Draft Pick

Knicks get Jimmy Butler

1.) 31 Jul 2018 16:02:35
Salaries are off by too much.


2.) 31 Jul 2018 16:06:24
The salary isn’t even close to working and there would be better offers than that for Butler. Minnesota would probably be better off just letting Butler walk than taking that deal.


3.) 31 Jul 2018 16:07:28
Btec, would you say it’s fair value other than the salaries not matching up? Also, would you take our Thomas or add a filler from Minnesota to make the salaries work?


4.) 31 Jul 2018 16:23:42
Easy route is to trade hardaway lee thomas seperately for expiring contract and sign butler next yr and keep pick.


5.) 31 Jul 2018 18:37:24
Definitely not enough for Butler. I can't see a deal that they land Butler that doesn't include Knox.


6.) 31 Jul 2018 19:35:41
Knox or porzingis gets butler. Sign butler with cap space next summer, tank and get a lottery pick, waive lee and noah, trade ntilikina and hardaway unless they have breakout seasons this year or show huge leaps in development. Butler is going to cost NY too much to acquire right now. With butler their pick has less value and chance of being a really good pick so hardaway, lee, kanter, noah are just NY boat anchors in a deal. Thomas is ok he can stay or go.


7.) 31 Jul 2018 19:49:59
That's horrible for the Timberwolves.


8.) 31 Jul 2018 20:09:41
It's so weird that Knicks fans still say "just sign him" when it comes to all star free agents. Who's the last person the Knicks got? Stat? That was forever ago, and he was damaged goods at that point.

I wouldn't rely on signing anyone if I'm the Knicks. They have to trade for an all star if they want one, then hope to resign them.


9.) 31 Jul 2018 20:34:46
I know bmiller66 isn't aiming that at me. I didn't write just sign him.


10.) 31 Jul 2018 23:22:49
Salaries are off by too much? No the stupidity of this trade is off by too much! Wow people think a little before ya post a dumb trade just think if you were the other team getting completely robbed of a allstar.

Knicks Dream Offseason

LeBron has stated many times that MSG is his favorite place to play and that he would play all 82 games there if he could. 82 is not possible but 41 is as good as it gets. It may seem crazy but with the landscape the way it is in the NBA right now, what would better help his legacy than taking a storied franchise like the Knicks back to contention after years of disfunction in the biggest market in the world? It may be a long shot but pairing him with Porzingis and using a few young pieces along with this year's first round draft pick to add another star might be enough to entice him. Throwing in the fact that he loves Dave Fizdale doesn't hurt either. Also, they should have plenty of cap space to add another star player next offseason. Soooooo.

Trades

Trade #1

Spurs get Hardaway Jr., Courtney Lee, Ron Baker, Lance Thomas, Frank Ntilikina, #9 Overall Pick, and 2020 1st Round Draft Pick

Knicks get Kawhi Leonard and Pau Gasol


Trade #2

Hornets get Joakim Noah, Emmanuel Mudiay, Luke Kornet, Isaiah Hicks, Damyean Dotson, and Two Second Round Draft Picks

Knicks get Dwight Howard


Free Agency

Enes Kanter and Kyle O'Quinn opt out

Sign LeBron James for 1 year and $35 million with a player option

Sign Dwayne Wade for 1 year at the Veteran's Minimum

Sign Rajon Rondo for 1 year and $10 million

Sign Jamal Crawford for 1 year at the Veteran's Minimum

Sign Al Jefferson for 1 year at the Veteran's Minimum

Sign Vince Carter for 1 year at the Veteran's Minimum

Sign Jason Terry for 1 year at the Veteran's Minimum


Roster

Starting Lineup

PG Rondo
SG Leonard
SF LeBron
PF Porzingis
C Howard

Bench

SG Wade
SG Crawford
PF/C Gasol
PF/C Jefferson
PG Burke
SG/PG Terry
SF/SG Carter

This team can make some noise in the Eastern Conference this year and next year can potentially add another star like Kyrie Irving who has been rumored to be interested in the Knicks. He and LeBron can make amends and win another ring together.

then you snapped your heels together, wished "there's no place like home", and we all lived happily ever after.


2.) 09 Jun 2018 17:22:18
If he wants to lose to the Celtics under an owner he hates, he'll stay in Cleveland, where the fans will be cool with it. The Knicks aren't even the best option in New York right now.

If you can pull these trades you might as well keep lee and Thomas get rid of the garbage known as Hardaway. He is 2nd coming of melo with less talent. All stats and offense, terrible plus minus against apposing starting SG.

Knicks Next Two Offseasons

Hire David Griffin as new President of Basketball Operations

Fire Jeff Hornacek and Kurt Rambis

Hire Mark Jackson as new Head Coach


Trade

Bulls get Courtney Lee, Joakim Noah, and 2019 1st Round Draft Pick

Knicks get Dwayne Wade


Free Agency

Resign Derrick Rose for 1 year and $15 million as a stop gap.


2017-18 Starting Lineup

PG Rose
SG Wade
SF Melo
PF Porzingis
C Hernangomez

I think with Mark Jackson as the coach with his big New York personality and Dwayne Wade's leadership and championship pedigree this team will be vastly improve.


Then......2018-2019 Offseason


Melo declines his 2018-2019 player option.


Free Agency

Sign LeBron James for 2 years and $50 million

Sign Chris Paul for 2 years and $50 million

Resign Carmelo Anthony for 2 years and $30 million

Resign Dwayne Wade for 2 years and $20 million


2018-2019 Starting Lineup

PG Paul
SG Wade
SF James
PF Melo
C Porzingis


I know the speculation as of late is that LA is going to be LeBron's next destination but with Paul leaving the Clippers and the Lakers having many young pieces already in place with the intent of adding George, NY might be his best bet at making their Banana Boat Dream a Reality. LeBron has said numerous times that MSG is his favorite place to play so playing half your games at your favorite arena with your best friends is not a bad alternative. Not to mention, LeBron having a relationship with David Griffin.


I know this is highly unlikely and probably a pipe dream. But being a Knicks fan, pipe dreams are all I have because the reality sucks.

Knicks Future Blueprint

Fire Phil Jackson!

As crazy as it sounds, I don't think they're that far away from being a very good team. I think they need to get a guy running the team with modern conventional ideas that actually cares about the team. They just need some tweaking.

Fire Jeff Hornacek.

I like him but they need a firery personality that will hold his players accountable and command respect, effort, hustle, and defense.

Hire Marc Jackson as Head Coach.


Trade Lance Thomas for 2nd Round Draft Pick


Free Agency

Let Derrick Rose walk.

Sign Chris Paul to a Max Contract.

Resign Brandon Jennings for 2 years and $16 million

Roster

Starting Lineup

PG Paul
SG Lee
SF Melo
PF Porzingis
C Noah

Bench

PG Jennings (6th Man)
SG Holiday
SF Kuzminskas
PF O'Quinn
C Hernangomez
SG Baker
PF N'Dour
C Plumlee


Having Paul lead this team and having a coach that has passion and commands respect along with having the weight that is Phil Jackson off their shoulders could make all the difference.

You have a 1st rd pick to draft someone.


2.) 09 Feb 2017 01:33:26
The Knicks are a mess right now. Why would Paul want anything to do with them?


3.) 09 Feb 2017 07:56:43
Rumors are CP3 is going to re-sign with the Clippers.

Knicks Offseason

Afflalo and Williams decline their player options

Trade

Hawks get Jose Calderon, Kyle O'Quinn, Cleanthony Early, a future 1st round draft pick, and 2 future 2nd round draft picks

Knicks get Jeff Teague and Tim Hardaway Jr.

The Hawks let Schroeder take over as the starter and get a mentor for him while improve their perimeter shooting in Calderon. They get a nice big man off the bench in O'Quinn. Cleanthony Early goes somewhere where he can get a fresh start and finally get some playing time and reach his potential. And they get a few decent draft picks.

The Knicks get the point guard they need in Teague and get Tim Hardaway Jr. back where he thrived his rookie year in hopes of reviving his career.


Free Agency

Sign either Bradley Beal or DeMar DeRozan to a max contract

Sign Jamal Crawford for 2 years and $10 million

Sign Evan Turner for 2 years and $8 million

Sign Josh Smith for 1 year and $1 million

Sign Jason Terry for 1 year and $1 million

Sign Timofey Mozgov for 3 years and $18 million

Sign A'mare Stoudemire for 1 year and $2 million


2016 Roster

Starting Lineup

PG Teague
SG Beal/ DeRozan
SF Melo
PF Porzingis
C Lopez

Bench

SG Crawford (6th man)
C Mozgov
PF/ C Stoudemire
SF/ SG Turner
SG/ PG Terry
PF/ SF Smith
PG/ SG Wroten
PG/ SG Galloway
SG Hardaway Jr.
PG Grant


None of this will probably happen but what do you guys think?

Supercollider, I know you are a Melo hater but the fact that you said awesome for the Knicks means you think it's fair? Or does it mean you think there's no chance? I can't tell.

jaw457, I agree with all of your points. The only reason Melo may consider the Timberwolves is to play with KAT, Wiggins, and a pass first PG like Rubio. I think they could make some noise in the West if they added a scorer like Melo.

I also agree that probably no team is stupid enough to trade for Noah but as a Knicks fan I had to try and I figured the Kings were my best shot. Haha! The two most disfunctional teams in the NBA! One signed him, the other trades for him.

Lastly, again I agree with you Jackson is probably a stretch at #5, I only said that because they're rumored to be interested in him. Do you think Tatum is more realistic?

Jakethesnake1995, I like Lee a lot too for the same reasons you stated but the other moves wouldn't be possible without clearing that cap space. And also, what you have to realize is that while that Pick may be two years away, losing CP3 and possibly Blake also by then either via Free Agency or Trade, the Clippers may find themselves as a bad rebuilding team in which case that Pick could have serious value.
