    Default So those also in favor of getting a PG/C instead of a max, which two do you want?

    Forget trades and caps, we don't know what's going on now, so let's just have some fun.

    I don't think we have a shot at DeAndre Jordan because of the Clippers probably willing to match any offer (unless he gets an offer WAY high), and with Billups contract I don't know if we even could.

    So...

    PG-Beno Udrih
    C-Javale McGee

    Beno Udrih doesn't put up big averages in any category, except one, FG%. I think this past season he averaged about 12 and 4 on 49 something percent shooting. Just imagine the numbers he'd put on our team with that efficiency. Heck, I'd take those numbers with that kind of efficiency, but it might have to be a little higher, which it probably would with STAT and Melo.

    McGee, well I've heard a lot of his low basketball IQ, but he seems like he has potential.

    Both are young, and McGee is very young, so we'd be in good shape for many years at the C spot of he works.

    Add in hopefully Billups comes back with us.

    If you're in favor of a max, well since we don't know what's gonna happen, list your alternatives.

    Seriously if D'Antoni isn't our coach we don't need an amazing PG. When you have two superstars on the team you don't need an amazing PG you just need someone who can make crisp passes and occasionally hit the open shot, Udrih is perfect for that. I was thinking someone like TJ Ford myself, but he's probably more of a backup PG.

    JaVale is a good idea, I just have no idea how to get him.

    The wiz will not let Javale go for cheap. He is like a god around here even though he has not proven ****.

    Unhappy The truth is sad sad sad

    Amare, Melo, and Billups cant recruit Dalembert as long as Dantoni is
    the Knicks headcoach. The 3-Star-Players has no wins at recruiting
    any decent player with Dantoni style of coaching.
    Plus they have bigger competitors in Boston Big-3, and Miami Big-3
    in the super-star recruiting FA war in the offseason.
    I actually believe young Durant & Westbrook power at recruiting players
    is 100 times stronger than the Knicks b/c we have Dantoni as our
    headcoach.....small-ball, small-rotation, no-defense, and a no-closer-plan.

    The best two FA for the Knicks would be C-Dalembert & PG-Brooks
    And Faried in the 2011 draft-class, plus add 2010 pick Jerome Jordan
    to the roster.

    Aaron Brooks is like TD just with a huge ego, i would rather get Watson or Miles.

    IIf the trailblazers do not go ahead and re-up on Greg Oden, I would implore the Knicks to JUMP at the opportunity to get him. I know I know, he's been injured at every turn since joining the NBA. But I believe his talents and potential are greater than any other big man on the market(besides Yao when he's healthy of course) when Oden has played he's proven to be a great talent on the defensive end. Perfect for what the Knicks need. His offensive skills are not polished but do they really need to be? I know its a risk, but at least its a risk with a high reward in the end. All other big men on the market, are also risk and their reqard will not equal to what Odens would be. But that could all be a pipe dream if Portland decides he's worth the chance and signs him. Pointguard, TJ Ford would be good fit in my book

    Thats funny because the very star players you mentioned came aboard with D'antoni as coach. But of course, they dont count because it doesn't fit into your fact free conspiracy theories! Of course you are right, Billups, Amare and Melo have not yet attracted any star since they came on board at the deadline...

    This.
    People are trying to find any little thing to fire D'antoni.

    I don't see any PG's available for a non-max deal that will be as good as Billups, or even better than TD (who I'd expect to have a breakout 3rd season with his shoulder healed and some training camp tutelage from Billups). Unless we can get Felton back.

    Dalembert could fit the limited role of defender/rebounder, and I'll be happy as long as he can score from 3ft away better than Jared Jeffries. He kinda falls in love with the 12ft jumper sometimes, but that's fine as long as he crashes the boards and remembers to clog the paint on defense. He'll be a 4th or 5th option on offense, anyway.

    The problem is, as said in the Dalembert thread, his price will be inflated by the shortage of decent centers in the NBA. If NY can get a good deal on him, then I'd be satisfied with him at the mean ugly 5 spot.

    There is no doubt that if I were building a team the two players that I would covet the most are Eddy Curry and Jerome James.

    Well, drat a center obviously.. then I'd say get a good point and a veteran center like Dalem.. Another thing that I thought was interesting is picking up Artest this off season.

    It's a weak draft for centers.
    I don't think they go for need at #17 in this draft. Just draft the best guy on the board and have him provide depth off the bench.
