Does management move Amar'e Stoudemire?
I think they'll consider all options behind closed doors, but in the end Amar'E will stay and trade talks will never become public. Knicks officials will issue statements like "We never had the intention to trade Amar'e he'S a key part of this team".
In reality this means that no deal was worth taking for the Knicks.
What player(s) could help as starter(s) or role player(s) via Free Agency and/or Draft?
A tough rebounder like Reggie Evans or Kris Humphries. An experienced wing-defender like James Posey or Deshawn Stevenson and the most important need: A point guard. Whether it'll be Nash and LIn slides in as backup or we keep Lin as the starter and sign a new backup PG - it's good either way, as long as we sign another good PG. Horrible PG play (Lin aside) is what really hurt our season the most.
Out of all of our free agent player(s), which one is most needed? Can only choose one!
Jeremy Lin without question.
If Mike D'Antoni does get Orlando gig! What stops Lin from rejoining MDA in Orlando via Free Agency?
The bigger market in New York and the fact that D'Antoni really played him out of neccessity (all the injuries) rather than out of trust.
Who will be our Assistant Head Coach? Does the Assistant HC have to be an offensive minded coach?
If Woodson stays it'll be his current staff. I see no reason why he would fire one of his guys after a couple of months.
If Phil Jackson takes over maybe Brian Shaw or even Patrick Ewing?!
