    Nash is the best offensive PG in the league imo. You people would be salivating what he'd do for our team, especially with Amar'e and Melo.

    He's 37 now though, so we'd have to make sure to weight out our all options carefully. I think we should consider him. He wouldn't be getting that much after next season, and 10 million for next season isn't bad at all.

    He isn't a great a defender, but this season he seemed to be solid on defense. Jason Kidd all of a sudden is a reliable three, so that shouldn't sound crazy.

    Besides, if our team in general needs defensive work and plans. Nash wouldn't hold us down.

    With that said, I rather Nash and Hill finish out their careers in Phoenix and win a championship there.

    Lightbulb We must take in consideration......

    As long as we have Celebrity coach Dantoni-system
    I dont see any decent FA veteran Bigman's agent answering
    any of Walsh calls for an offer in the Cap-Lockout (long) offseason.

    Farieds dynamic high IQ in rebounding will lose interest in our
    coaching-system the sameway so many of our players lost interest
    in the postseason games....players names dont need to be mention

    So far we have a little sumthin with:
    1) PG-Billups
    2) PG-Douglas
    3) SG-Fields
    4) SG-Walker
    5) SF-Shawn
    6) SF-Melo
    7) PF-Amare
    8) PF-Turiaf
    Adding FA PG-Brooks and C-Dalembert would be an offseason improvement
    to the Knicks roster.
    Drafting Faried rebounding potential would also be an improvement to the
    roster when we add (2010 pick) Jerome Jordan too, which would give us
    12-players to use in a rotation when playing back to back games in the regular season.

    Exactly. There are rumblings that we're going to target Dalembert, but so is Miami. Putting both rosters aside (IF) both teams can offer the mid level exception who does he sign with? MOA who has a history of misusing bigs? Or Miami who would embrace this guy coming aboard?

    I think we all know the answer to this...

    taste the truth of a question 99.9% knows the answer to.

    Elijah Mohammed definitely has to be on Walsh's radar this off season.If I were James Dolan I would send a limo directly to the Oklahoma City Thunder arena as soon as the Thunder's season comes to an end, arrange to have a one hour meeting with Mohammed, his agent and bring Donnie Walsh and Allan Houston along with me.

    Default Draft First, then the Fireworks

    IMHO, who you acquire as a FA big depends largely on who you end up drafting.

    1) Do you trade up in the draft? If so, to acquire Enes Kanter or a top PG?
    2) Do you stay at #17? If so, do you draft Faried or Noguiera or a midling PG?
    3) Do you keep #17 and trade for an additional first rounder? If so, do you draft Faried and Noguiera, or just one of these and a guard?

    If you have some project bigs (Jerome Jordan, Noguiera, Faried) then you might acquire Dalembert or Foster, so you can also get a better PG backup, pending a CP3 deal or keeping Billups for more than another year.

    If you draft a PG of the future, or just Faried but not Kanter or Noguiera; then you might need to go for a better longer-term center, such as Marc Gasol or DeAndre Jordan.

    The problem is... Knicks don't have much wiggle room here. Knicks payroll is at about 65 million already, and that's before we resign Shawne Williams and add our 2 draft picks' salaries.

    Billups-Amar'e-Carmelo combine for 50 million alone. When we picked up CB's option, that pretty much took away our chances to be competitive in the upcoming free agent market.

    NOW, our only hope is to use what we have to sell what we can offer:

    1- GREAT PLACE TO LIVE... world's best city... along with the history and revamped MSG stage.

    2- LEGIT 2.5 stars... A chance to win a title. Dynamic Duo (Melo/Amar'e) and proven winner (Billups).

    3- A starting role... minutes at SG & C.

    4- Player-friendly coach and offensive system.

    5- Owner willing to spend in the future.

    What we could use is a J-Rich to be swayed by this, or some other vet. If they've made enough money could they pull a Karl Malone and Gary Payton? Come to NY on the cheap?

    Who knows what exemptions and stuff will be in place after the lockout and a new CBA is in place. AT BEST, we have about 10 million to work with.

    =========

    I would sign Kurt Thomas and then hope Joel Pryzbilla or Kwame Brown accept less money to come to NY. THEN, take a flier on a Michael Redd or Bonzi Wells. Resign Shawne Williams... Then hope to convince a Grant Hill, Jamal Crawford or Jason Richardson to sign on for a shot at the title.

    Otherwise, just go get Deshaun Stevenson, and trade Bill Walker for Josh McRoberts.

    Mafra, you make it sound so easy haha...where is all that money coming from? Especially once the new CBA comes into effect and there is presumably no more MLE.
