    Nyk Logo Knicks shopping Landry Fields

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Multiple sources have told me over the past week that the Knicks are shopping Landry Fields and it appears they are trying to move into the first round if the Warriors agree to deal with the Knicks restricted free agent.

    A team that the Knicks could be targeting is Golden State, who currently hold the 30th pick, the last pick in the first round and 4 picks total.

    Fields would be an ideal fit for the Warriors open style and, should the Knicks move to the end of the first round, they can target the best player available which could perhaps be Vandy’s sharp shooter John Jenkins or Kentucky’s Doron Lamb should they go SG

    Damn... as much as i would hate to see Fields go.. if we can get a first rounder for him its worth it.

    I dont see why GS would do this though...

    If we could get into the 1st we could grab Jared Cunningham and in the 2nd go for a guy like Quincy Acy to replace Jeffries

    This is very good news, look guys I know we all like to keep players we draft, especially steals like Fields was in the 2nd round but this guy has regressed extremely since the first half of his rookie year.

    He is a head case and is afraid to shoot the basketball and lost all confidence in his jumper this season.

    He is perfect for a fast break kind of team in Golden State and with guys like Curry, Lee, and Bogut, all Fields will have to do is drive to the basket and rebound while hustling his butt off.

    In NY we need Fields to knock down open shots, primarily the 3 point shot which is just not his style. He was one of the biggest dissapoitnments behind hte arc this year for any player, especiall since he shot 39% from that area in his 1st year.

    A sign a trade for Landry is a smart move, he doesn't fit on this team anymore with a new coach and style suited to more of a slower half court pace and we desperatly need some cheap players, and the draft is where that can happen

    If Golden State is willing to trade the 1st round pick, it would be a good move for both sides. GS knows what they are getting and Fields is better than a 30th pick. We need a knock down shooter and a facilitator so buying picks/and or trading for them is the priority right now.

    I hope Fields is traded, sorry Landry but it is time for you to move on.

    as much as i love landry fields i'm actually okay with this trade if it goes through. with the exception of a few players (balkman, hill, etc) the knicks have always delivered on draft night. I always said that if landry doesn't find his jumper he can be easily replaced with a 2 guard from the draft. Just hoping this doesn't sway Jeremy Lin to another team seeing how him and Landry were butt buddies.

    I said the Knicks might not want to keep Fields, looks like I was right.

    It's not a done deal after all he is restricted so the Warriors might be able to get him without giving up anything but a first round pick for him would be sweet.

    Bummer, Landry is actually one of my favorite Knicks. I took it personal when he performed so poorly this season. But I guess if the knicks can get a better 2 guard for him then I would do it. Not sure if GSW bites on this but we will see. But Landry definitely went in another direction from his rookie year. If this does go down and everything goes according to plan, I can see NY picking Doron Lamb so he can come back home to NY.

    Fields would fit nice at the 3 with GSW while the Knicks can take a guy like Doron Lamb, Jared Cunningham or even Marquis Teague to sure up guard depth

    A good trade for both teams, funny thing is I was literally just on Hoopsyhype and I was looking at the draft order and saw G State had the last pick and was wondering if there was anything we could offer them to get it!

    Anyways...Landry is a California guy, he's young and athletic, he thrived in an uptempo offense where the ball moved a lot and he did not have to creat one on one (his biggest weakness) so he'd probably give them 10 pts, 5 rebs and a steal off the bench, good compensation for the 30th pick.

    I went to Vanderbilt and watched John Jenkins play...a lot.

    The guy is a great shooter. It was reported that he has a pretty good wingspan (I think he's 6'5" but a 6'8" wingspan), so he might be a passable defender in the league.

    If he can be our version of JJ Redick, that would be amazing. In this system we need SHOOTERS. Landry was a black hole on offense last year and it killed us.

    Jenkins can shoot it, no question. My thing though -- is he that much better than Kim English? Basically the same type of player (primarily a perimeter oriented 2G) only English might be bigger by an inch/inch & a half, and I think he might be better defensively. Jenkins took about 4 shots a game more than English -- that's where you get the scoring disparity from: Jenkins' 19.9 ppg to English's 14.5. Everything else looks very comparable. Not a knock on Jenkins at all. I like him for us, I just don't know if I'd move all the way up to get Jenkins at 30 if I knew English will be there at 48. Maybe we resign Fields and either keep him or use him for something else and just grab English at 48.

    Someone mentioned Brandon Rush on another board. How about Fields and the rights to Gerogios Printezis (who we won't be able to sign anyway if we don't win this Bird rights hearing) for Rush or Fields/Douglas/rights to Printezis/rights to Ahmad Nivins for Rush?

    Hey SS -- just curious. What's up with Jermaine Beal these days? He go overseas somewhere? I liked that kid. 6'3" PG that could shoot it. That kid could play, man. Any idea where he is now?

    No arguments here.

    My list goes:

    PG-Facilitator
    SG
    Defenders

    ...on the cheap. Do what we must, by any means necessary.

    Add a Douglas and anyone not named Melo or Chandler to the list, imo.
