**** Reggie Evans
Hopefully we get this guy as a free agent:
What's the beef (doesn't know anything about him except his rebounding).
I want a Center.. he's alittle short at 6'8. He does hustle tho. I guess he wouldn't be bad. But I really want SIZE
He averaged 11.5 rebounds last season. Size alone ain't gonna cut it.
I also want a center. Evans would be our back-up to Amar'e.
i guess dalembert or even Brown( yes kwame! ) at C get evans as well re-up williams and barea and we got ourselves a solid bench with a guy who can help immediately in shumpert( dudes nice ). along with Turiaf and J.Jordan coming over and harrellson for garbage time we got a team to compete next year although i still feel were a banch player away a solid player i think iman will become that for us but not as a rookie.
STAT & Melo are not going to be playing all 48 minutes. There will be plenty of minutes for a backup F to come in & contribute, especially someone who can rebound & defend like Reggie Evans. I think at this point he is our best chance to impact our frontcourt need for a rebounder w/o having to break the bank on a bigger name (we probably don't have the cap space to do so anyway). I would welcome Reggie Evans on the Knicks with open arms. Plus that means no more Jared Jeffries, so you kill 2 birds with 1 stone.
Grant Hill - I would welcome him with open arms too, the guy is a pro & definitely knows how to play on both ends of the floor
Josh Howard - interesting choice on a high upside flyer, I think he's still got plenty of game left in him & would welcome an opportunity to make a comeback on a contending team next season in hopes of landing a bigger payday later. We might be able to sign a guy like that on a 1 year deal.
Kenyon Martin - another intriguing option, I've always loved that guy's intensity. I think he would make a perfect Knick, bring back some of that toughness that the old school teams had.
Chuck Hayes - undersized but 1 of the best frontcourt defensive players in the NBA. He would add a lot to our defensive woes in the paint.
Other than these guys, I don't see any other names in the free agent pool that can realistically make any appreciable difference on this year's squad.
