he could spell amare at PF and help out at center. i think it worth it.. i think we still need another big man.. we cant totally count on Jerome and Jorts.. and chandler could miss some time with all these back to back games.. we know amare will.
He is effective in short minutes and has proven himself capable of playing in dantonis system. However i think our team is looking for depth more at the 3/4 then at 4/5. I think he'd be a great pick up for us, but i don't think the Knicks Brass will.
Maybe my NBA insight is slipping but I for one am clueless as to why he was not brought back after what he was able to do a couple seasons ago. The guy came in and balled the last month of the year helping out on the boards.
He should be a vet min. player that is added we have nothing in terms of depth at the 4 / 5. Jeff, Chris Hunter, Novak, Balk... We need a big who can bang and shoot the midrange ala Kurt Thomas.
