Anyway, good post LJ.
Way too many threads opened up about different players being bought out. Heres your one stop shop. Honestly Leon Powe never deserves a thread unless hes literally signed by us.
Let me start with my two cents on JJ. At first I was like no way do I wanna see Jeffries in a Knicks uniform. Then I thought why? Because of Isiah and his contract. Can you fault the guy for taking security and money for his family. When we signed him I remember reading the headline Isiah gets his defensive stopper. Thats exactly what JJ did for us. I think with him and brewer on board, we are looking at a great C Squad (The All Defense Squad). All we have to do is snag TJ Ford and a buyout center 6'11 or above. The big body plugging the middle will cause defenses to think twice regardless of how good they are (think Timofey).
All signs have Troy Murphy going to Boston, so lets forget him. Havent heard anything about Dalembert or Camby being bought out. This just leads Pryzbilla. I have heard the hes requested a buyout. So I am going to plug him in now and show you different squads in different situations (if you read Bill Simmons book he does this a lot)
The A Squad The B Squad (Not all 5 will be in at once)
SF-Melo SF- Walker
SG-Fields SG- Douglas
PG-Billups PG- Ford
The C Squad (The defensive stoppers)
The Game on the line Squad
I know Williams didnt take the shot against the 76ers but still we need a big time three point threat. Maybe Kapono! Well see Anyways these are nice squads which will only get better next year. The Defensive Squad is especially nice. With the proper waiver pickups we can make a run to the Eastern Conference Finals.
The buyouts will be Anthony Carter, Shelden, and Roger Mason.
Inactives: Rautins, Balkman and Azu (until fully healthy)
Anyway, good post LJ.
looks like JJ is coming back so thats good, he gives us defense and rebounding to some extent but he's another Turiaf. we need a flat out C i hope we get Prizbilla
I think the Bobcats may keep him..
Well Pryz said he'd ask to be boughtout or retire so IDK bout that.
But heres my list(if most of them get bought out) in no particular order:
Joel Pryzbilla(praying he gets a buyout)
Samuel Dalembert(praying he gets a buyout)
Jared Jeffries(will be boughtout)
Mike Bibby(will be boughtout)
Troy Murphy(will be boughtout)
Rip Hamilton(praying he gets a buyout)

Hmmmm Think we could get Bibby? I saw him in the Wizards game so I don't know if he's gonna be bought out soon.
Donnie talked about looking over in Europe for a big man. Anyone here have any good scouting info on another Mozgov type?
There has to be a 7 foot raw talent out there who can fill in on the defensive side, at least give 15-20 mins and absorb a few fouls..
Anyone have prospect info?
seriously D'Antoni is a stubborn ass coach, play brewer already.
Whens the deadline for buyout/new roster adds to be eligibile for the playoffs? I remember hearing Tuesday but I cant find anything about it anywhere.
Just red this on Twitter:

Guard Mike Bibby agreed to give up entire $6.2 million salary for the '11-'12 season to get buyout with Wiz to play for winner, source says.
Would be an EXCELLENT pickup for the Knicks to split time with Billups!
