    He could re-sign a 2 year deal. Then after 2 years look to sign a big long term deal at that point he'd be 28 and could get his big pay day

    He can get an extra 20% salary if he opts out and signs a new contract. Makes sense for him to do that.

    i think Junior Swish wants to test the waters, see if he can get more than Knicks can afford from another team. he couldn't give a f*ck about the Knicks, he just wants cash money, cash money, show me the money honey, fags.

    I have absolutely no problem with him leaving, we don't have the money he's looking for and we don't need his chucking each second game. Thanks for stopping by.

    He was big for us a few times. I know he chucks but I'd keep him being that we don't have many options to fill out the roster and we already know Shump will be out for some time and we don't know how Landry will look come training camp. We just need a starting and back up PG cause JR is no Ginobili or Harden off the bench and shouldn't be in charge of running anything... just do what you do best.

    with Shump not returning to the court until January, we need all the help we can get at the guard spot...i wouldn't be upset if JR didn't sign and i wouldn't be upset if he did. He's a Love/hate type player.
