    Unhappy Fredette Rumours Resurface

    One of the most prolific shooters in NCAA history could have been a Knick last summer.

    This June, the club has an opportunity to trade up to draft the native of Glens Falls, New York. An opportunity, the team is likely to pursue.

    Alan Hahn, from Newsday.com, has the inside scoop on the Knicks pursuit of Jimmer:

    There are plenty of expectations for the BYU star, who was the college Player of the Year this past season. And one of them is that he won’t be available for the Knicks , who have the 17th overall pick in the NBA draft. But according to a person with knowledge of the situation, the Knicks are looking for a deal that will help them move up in the draft to land the sharpshooter from upstate Glens Falls.

    The issue, of course, is the team’s lack of assets to offer in a trade, which, right now, would be to offer either Toney Douglas or Landry Fields along with their pick.

    Currently, NBADraft.net has defensive-minded Florida State forward Chris Singleton (6-9, 230) going to New York at #17.

    In other news, the team is considering inviting Bonzi Wells to training camp. Marc Berman from the New York Post had this to say:

    At their two-day free-agent tryout camp that ended yesterday, the player that by far impressed the most was 34-year-old veteran shooting guard Bonzi Wells, who has been out of the league since 2008.

    The Knicks actually are considering inviting him to training camp — whenever that is, pending a new labor agreement. Whether they offer him a guaranteed pact is unclear.

    It looks like the front office plans to be busy this off-season, and it wouldn’t surprise me, if the Knicks are an active participant starting draft night – June 23.


    If we lose Fields for Fredette, I am going to shoot that 'stache off D'Antoni's face.

    Word..Jimmer better go from leading the nation in scoring to leading the NBA in scoring if we lose Fields over him.. If it's Toney however... I think I may be ok with it..

    Don't understand that bro.

    If I remember correctly, it was Fields who was the worst player on our roster since the All Star Break.

    Toney had great scoring games (the 3 pt record and all) and some good defensive games.

    I'd rather trade both of them plus Walker and Billups to New Orleans, for you know who....

    but what would we be really gaining if we get jimmer and lose toney. they're basically the same in what they bring, in fact, we lose a bit of defense if we lose toney.
    also, scoring is NOT what this team needs. we need to get that through our heads, more importantly, NYK management needs to get that through its head. we need defense/rebounding/quality depth.

    Default Fredette

    Fredette is a D'Antoni system player. A perimeter shooter who does not play defense. If we take Fredette, we are investing in the D'Antoni system. I am not for it. If we are going to move up, I would rather take a chance on Biyombo -- though one analyst observed that he saw him play a one on none game and lost.

    It was Fields rookie year. IMO he just hit the wall.. He has a much higher ceiling than Toney and plays his position better than Toney plays his. Toney is a SG in a PG's body. His defense is overrated (Got lit up by Rondo in the playoffs) and he's a streaky type shooter. Can't run the offense to save his life really. With Jimmer atleast we get a more consistent shooter, who can also run the offense alittle better than Toney can although we lose a BIT of defense.

    I understand your view of taking the best player possible, but it has to be the best player available for the knicks. We need rebounding, defense and more size to seriously compete next season. Jimmer was an incredible player for BYU but he won't get the same freedom playing with Melo, Amare and Billups and I'm not even sure he's a pass first pg.

    Sam Bowie was drafted before Michael Jordan for size, defense and rebounding needs...

    wow.... considering you should never invite somebody to you wierner.. either you have no street ethics... or you act online like you wont act in the streets... trust anythin i say.. id say it to your face and anybody else... i never tried to disrespect you in that way and wont stoop to that level on a website....becuz i know your a kitten....

    however your basketball IQ is lacking if you think we need the best player available even if he is a liabilty on defnse.. which we dont need... best player available excluding liablities on defense would be the best way to go

    Yea ok tough guy..no one was talking about the street except you, nimrod. I'm a 240 lb kitten with years of boxing and guarantee this kitten has claws that would tare your little "street" rat ass up.

    No disrespect? I made a comment that had nothing to do with MDA and you decided to twist my words and "SMFH" at me. This is after you stay on my dick like a condom in multiple threads. Speak when spoken too DummyG or Ill twist you up and cancel your ass like G Money from New Jack City.

    My basketball IQ is unquestioned by knowledgeable posters and I stay getting love with MVP and Tyson awards on this forum. You're just an attention seeking invisible chump trying hard to crack the rotation. Now stop riding my dick and go ride the bench where you belong.
