    Rumor Rumour: Knicks preparing to offer a lucrative contract to Pjax

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Deal rumoured to be worth 4yr/50 Million, providing the Knicks don't make it out of the first round this year.

    EDIT: I think Woodson's doing enough to earn an extension. Do you think Phil Jackson would work with our team/which would you prefer: Woodson or Jackson and why?

    Just learned the news too.

    It was easier to hope for PJax in the beginning. But it's so tough to even think about it now. Woodson certainly has done hell of a job.

    It might have marked a history moment, the rising (and soaring) of Woodson after this season.

    If I must pick one. Let me say I will vote for master Woodson. (But I will still welcome PJax if he got more votes.)

    Agreed, I think if Woodson wins 2 playoff games this year he has done more than enough for an extension. Im actually terrified we might go all out for Phil, get rejected and lose Woodson in the process.

    With a full offseason & training camp, bringing back everyone other than JR, I believe we are a 55 win team with Woodson good for the 3rd seed.

    Of course Woodson has done a good job, but Phil Jackson is Phil Jackson.....more rings than fingers folks!

    One must be stupid to NOT offer him a contract when he's available.

    The triangle might be THE solution to get Melo, Amar'e and Tyson going on offense at the same time.

    Because right now that's our main problem, the spacing, ball-movement and role-distribution are not good when all 3 of them are on the court at the same time. Particullary Amar'e looks lost when Tyson is on the floor and Melo seems to be at his best while playing the 4 spot (29 PER at PF vs 16.5 PER at SF).

    The triangle could help with all that.

    I'm more than ok with Woodson staying, but Jackson would be an upgrade, definitely.

    If we could make one more dicisive move then....I'm thinking of something like Lin, STAT and Fields for Kevin Love. I know I'm obsessed with K-Love, but that guy is so good, it's almost ridiculous. Best PF in the league by quite some margin. The media hype Griffin, but Love is the real deal.

    Him next to Melo, Chandler and Shump with Jackson as HC? It's a wrap! Better team than Miami.

    Well the players would like to see woody retained. A first rd upset of mia/chi would do just that. Make it Happen.

    source of this rumor? If its true, then the timing of it is awful. I love what Woodson is doing but if Pill is available we should not even think about it. Bring him and with upgrade at power forward position as Love for Stat and nobody is stopping us. Period.

    That's why you can't take this rumor too seriously. Some writer from Racine, WI (of all places) was the source and it was only a footnote in his column . Let one of the NY beat writers or Woj of Yahoo mention it and maybe you can start taking this seriously.

    Doesn't matter what Woodson does; if Phil Jax is willing to coach here, BYE WACK SAUCE WOODSON.

    I agree.. the Timing of this is totally BADDDDD. We are on the doorstep of going into a playoff series with Miami or Chicago and we need to be as focused as possible. The last thing Woodson or the team need is a story about a HUGE offer the Knicks may or may not make to PJ if the Knicks dont get out of the first round. THAT IS NOT FAIR TO WOODSON AT ALL IMO

    I think the main issue with us is that we've been going through too many changes, which isn't allowing us to develop a good strategy for winning. I say we keep Woodson as well, he's done a hell of a job. our front office has a history of rewarding failure over success so if we screw over woodson, what's to say we won't screw PJax over if he doesn't get us a title?

    I'm going with Woody, He just seems to be a great fit for this team at the moment. We don't have to be that creative with the offense because we have scorers, what we needed was a defensive minded coach to balance out the team while keeping the team and coaching staff on the same page.

    We went thru decades to get this formula. I think some fans are just used to seeing changes in the Knicks oragnisation year after year and fail to recognize when they actually have a good thing going.

    Phil is a a great coach, but I don't think he's hungry enough to do this again. Our team and coaching staff has a bond right now and they are all hungry and winning big games. With the little amount of time this team has had together...I think Woody deserves way more acknowledgement and respect. So far...he's earned an extended contract. There may be some bad Karma to pay up if we dump him after he's done such a great job. Looking to hire someone who I think dosen't really want to coach anymore is a desparate move, it shows lack of faith and probabaly a lack of vision. Perhaps these desparate fans don't really see what coach Woody is doing for this team. Before D'ANt step down we had a few great coaches and all of them left with little to no success. Why gamble on a tired retired Phil Jackson when Woody is clearly on the rise?

    There is nothing left for Phil to prove. If Woody didn't do what he did for the Knicks...I might be interested in Phil too, but not anymore. Let him retire. And lets wait after the playoffs to re-evaluate all of our options, it's foolish to go against coach Woody now... or go against anything outside of what the Knicks are doing right now. Lets just put those broken crystal balls away for now...
