    Default Knicks Salary Cap Going Forward

    Just so I'm clear, now that we have Amare, Melo, and Chandler locked-up, will we have any salary cap space in the next couple years to make a run at any significant free agents or is this pretty much it (i.e. those 3 guys plus the draft and bargain bin)? Just wondering.

    Also, second question, anyone think of Run AMC yet as the nickname for our new starting frontline?

    I don't think that there will be enough space to do anything big, we'll have seven players under contracts of total value of ~$59M + there is Douglas' option of $2M. And we'll probably consider resigning a couple of players including Davis, Fields and Walker. I think all what we'll be able to do next offseason is to offer minimum exceptions and full mid-level.

    With those three our salary cap is tapped out. All we would have at our disposal are picks and the exceptions.

    Basically the knicks need baron to play well ao they can get a good player with the full MLE, also someone decent with the 2.5 and thats it. If the knicks sign K.mart that is another body for 2 years. Next year we can draft someone as well. So in theory in 2-3 years we will have some decent roleplayers.

    But, we have to use our cap room MLE before this season ends and we have a second round pick...

    So no room to make a significant signing? Idk if anyone else feels this way and I'm not one to start talking about stuff thats already done but does anyone think Chandler's contract is a bit high. Maybe I did miss what Golden state offered him and what other teams did as well. But 14 mill a year is kind of high in my opinion. I was reading this article about the contract and it kind of shows that once again we may have overpaid for a player.


    Check this out:
    First, let us review the contract, it is worth $58 million over four years, with the first year starting at plus $12 million. This contract increases as time wears on.
    Here's the list of players making within $3 million of Chandler:
    Josh Smith (12.4), Al Horford (12), Paul Pierce (15.3), Carlos Boozer (13.5), Luol Deng (12.3), Antawn Jamison (15.1), Danny Granger (12), [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (16), [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (16), Dwyane Wade (15.7), Andrew Bogut (12), Deron Williams (16.4), Andre Iguodala (13.5), Elton Brand (17.1), Jason Terry (11.7), David Lee (11.6), Kevin Martin (11.5), Chris Kaman (12.6), Andrew Bynum (14.9), Zach Randolph (15.2), Rudy Gay (15), [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (16.4), Emeka Okafor (12.6), Kevin Durant (13.6), Steve Nash (11.7), LaMarcus Aldridge (12.6), Manu Ginobili (11.9), Tony Parker (12.5), Al Jefferson (14).



    But than again Chandler is most effective with a true pg where he becomes more than a one demensional player. If you want to check the rest of the article its kind of interesting heres the link. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
