Why not just cut and paste the name of every Free Agent's name regarding the Knicks?  Any decent player that gets a chance to play for a contender is going to pass on the circus that is the Knicks.

27M dollars is next to nothing at these prices.  You can't even get two supporting starters for that money.  Shump got 4 years 40M and he isn't even really a starter.

Things are shaping up nicely.  No back court, no center, no PF.  Sounds like a Knick team to me.

What a JERK!

It's fans like you who LOST THEIR DAMN MINDS with all the hateration being childish! I would have approach free agency the same way as Phil did by picking the pieces I WANT that I BELIEVE FIT! Just that simple. Dude earned that right and KNICK fans haven't seen winning for YEARS need to CHILL! Picking the wrong free agent because everybody is spending, then find out later they SUCK being inconsistent at their craft was painful enuff! Phil has watch seen how NY been handling their affairs for years being under poor management and poor fans who don't understand managing. Phil's years of experience of coaching know what type of players that he wants and sometimes the process for quality requires time. Even if it took us 2-3 years to win a CHIP it will be WORTH THE WAIT!!!

The problem why players don't want to come to NY is because of the fans who are FICKLE! Does Patrick Ewing ring a bell? We can win one championship and lose the rest and you still not satisfied scrub! Get a life or choose another team! Smh

Phil take your TIME!!!

You think the Knicks are well run? The fans have been patient to a fault. They filled the Garden last year for a 17-win team that Phil thought was playoff bound in training camp. Don't confuse selectivity with an inability to attract free agents who want to win.

Have you been sleeping for the last decade? Is this James Dolan?

I hope I'm wrong, but there is no evidence of a plan other than praying some FA is willing to take a chance on a terrible roster and inept coach.

@sheepwool probably take about the same to get Robin. Leaves us enough to bring in Lee. 


Calderon, Shved, melo, Lee, Robin might be enough to get in the playoffs....

He wouldn't have excelled here. He is a head case who was a fourth option in a high powered offense. He would failed miserably in New York as he is a well known head case who didn't work under Mark Jackson. We dodged a bullet.

@tw22 You don't have any idea what you are talking about.  I don't see him as a star, but he would be an instant starter for the Knicks.  I live in SF and saw what he meant to the Warriors.  He was the glue of that team.  next to Curry, he was by far the next most important player, even over Thompson.

@SNYGiants Although all 3 picks are areas of definite need it feels each was a bit of a reach for players that could have been had later
