Yep. Paul's become an illegitimate chance. Get him back.
Nope. Save the cash for unforeseen future transactions.
1 year. Keep him as a trade chip.
My anus is killing me!
Small forward Shawne Williams, a huge revelation last season, won’t be at training camp tomorrow when it opens, still unsigned. The Knicks have offered him a one-year deal at the minimum, $980,000, but he has a couple of more lucrative offers. The Nets have inquired. ... The Knicks have interest in re-signing young forward Derrick Brown, who was signed in March but rarely played. ... Amar’e Stoudemire and Chauncey Billups are expected to report to voluntary workouts today, the last day of such get-togethers.

Jesus. I didn't even consider that. Is that one of the harbingers of the apocalypse? That is so ****ed!
Tell me about it. I think its a disrespectful move by the Knicks. The guy was great for us and played with passion. $980k. WOW.
Damn, the guy said he'll take anything, and they offer him the lowest possible, so much for giving the man a little something extra for his genuine appreciation of being accepted and wanting to play with us.
I wouldn't offer him that much more than the minimum. His three point shooting fell back to earth quickly after the all-star break.
LJ4ptplay our inhouse capologist, correct me if Im wrong, but I think if we are over the cap, and with no MLE after amnestying Billups, all we can offer anyone like Shawne is the vet minimum or can we offer him more than that because he is our free agent?
We keep our full mid-level exceptions rights until our salary crosses a $74M level, which is $4M over the luxury tax threshold. Chandler earns some $14M during his first season with the Knicks and if we trade/amnesty Billups and trade Turiaf's $4M deal for a draft pick then even with Brown and Jeffries contracts we're just below a $58M salary.
All these things will fall into place once TC signs on the dotted line. The right way to do things is to get your highest paid players in place first then focus on the smaller salaries.
The JJ deal was done early because Damphony was looking out for his butt buddy.
i heard shawne williams is with the nets now any truth?
Whats with this no MLE ****, we started the season over the cap we can still use the MLE for one signing that takes us over the cap
