    expect the Bulls, Rockets or Dallas to get him

    False...The Heat proved they are on another level than the Knicks after beating them 4 - 1 and knocking off the OKC 4 - 1.

    with the heat signing Ray Allen it looks like Camby is coming our way....

    Lets assume shump is out till December....

    Lin
    ??
    Melo
    Stat
    Tyson

    Kidd
    JR
    Camby
    Novak

    we need a 2 guard badly...unless Kidd and Lin play together....but JR and MELO should never be on the court together

    the 2 guard we get won't get big minutes. Looks like Kidd will have to share the court with Lin just because of SHumpert's injury and I am not entirely against that. Kidd can guard the 2 and knock down the open 3 plus provide better ball movement.

    We are going to use the mid level and our s&t options on Kidd and Camby, most likely, unless Camby doesn't sign with us. Assuming he does, we have to use the veteran's minimum

    SGs to use vet minimum on....

    Michael Redd (would be a steal at vet min)
    Keith Bogans
    Mo Evans
    Cartier Martin
    Von Wafer (former Knick)
    James Anderson
    Morris Almond (former Knick summer league player)

    Marc Berman Told #Knicks can't do 2 sign-and-trades, for Kidd/Camby. Kidd would take $3.09M midlevel if #Knicks can accomplish S&T with Camby. Shotblocking center visits Miami this weekend, then meets with Knick brass but not in NYC. Very possible in Vegas where assistant GM Allan Houston, Mike Woodson are for U.S. Olympic Team practices and summer league starting soon. Meanwhile, PG Prigioni still on radar and club trying to figure way to get him more than minimum.

    You think Pablo prigioni would be worth more than Minimum? i like his game, IQ & also his confidence saying he'll "drop 20 assists easy in the NBA" which is highly unlikely lol.

    The Rockets are open to a sign-and-trade with the Heat for free agent Marcus Camby.
    The Heat have only the veteran minimum to work with right now, but could conceivably send back a combination of players, picks, and cash to Houston and offer Camby a salary that he'll deem acceptable. Shane Battier and Joel Anthony's names have been kicked around as possible assets to send back to Houston, but nothing substantive has come out on that front.

    Default Aaron Brooks

    OK, so now the Suns pulled qualifying offer to Aaron Brooks making him an unrestricted free agent. now Bayless and Brooks are available, will the Knicks F.O. make a play for either one? either could be EXCELLENT SG and bench backups to LIN, JR, etc. both are better than White James i'm sure...

    Camby cancels his meeting with the heat, sounds like a good sign for us. he wants to be back in NY and get some of that 99' magic back haha. He'd be terrific coming in with the second unit and continue to set the tone defensively. Hopefully well walk away from tomorrows meeting with another knick,


    after Camby we re-up with Smith and Novak and were looking pretty good. **didnt mention Lin cause he's pretty much resigned

    After we resign J.R and Novak we most likely can't afford more than the biannual exception.

    We should use the biannual on Prigioni or a 2 guard that can hit an open outside shot to spread the floor.

    If we do a sign and trade for Camby, we would probably lose Jordan and/or Harrelson so we should resign Jeffries to the vet minimum

    Trading Gadzuric, Douglas, Harrelson and Jordan leaves one more roster spot open...most likely we would sign someone at the vet minimum like Shawne Williams or just fill it out with someone that will never get minutes so when Shump returns no hard feelings.

    ...Let's try to round out the order again lol

    Lin
    Kidd
    Melo
    Amare
    Chandler

    Prigioni
    J.R
    White
    Novak
    Camby
    Jeffries
    12 man- Shawne Williams at vet min to fill out roster?

    I'm happy as **** you said that

    The Heat defeated both the Knicks and the Thunder in 5 games, beating the Thunder 4 in a row

    The Thunder were at full force, no injuries, everyone healthy, lots of chemistry

    The Knicks had pretty much nobody, starting and back up PG hurt, Starting Center with the flu, Starting PF made stupid choice, best perimeter defender down in game 1, best player tripled team, best 3 point shooter isolated

    yet both teams only managed to win 1 game against the champs

    So you're saying

    Carmelo Anthony
    Tyson Chandler
    Amar'e Stoudemire
    JR Smith
    Jeremy Lin
    Iman Shumpert
    Steve Novak
    Jason Kidd
    Marcus Camby
    Jared Jeffries

    With a full training camp and a head coach who fits our personnel

    cant push the Heat to the limit

    So the Heat are also on another level than the Thunder???

    Most would not say that yet they lost in 5 games. Thunder just didn't have Harden step up and they missed open outside shots. Plus Heat had guys like Battier and Miller knocking down a million shots.

    The Knicks lost in 5 games with Lin out the whole series, Tyson sick in game 1, Amare out in game 3 and no legit PG that could penetrate any opposing teams defense...keep all of that in mind.

    I'm hoping to try and swing a trade for Tayshaun Prince

    Problem is it means losing out on Camby

    Kidd gets the MLE

    use the scrub package Douglas, Gadzuric, Jordan, Harrellson and some cash plus a pick for Prince, this guarantees Detroit major cap room in 2013 after using the amnesty clause on Villanueva

    We can then sign Jared Jeffries back and use the bi annual exception on Kenyon Martin and a vet minimum salary for Daniel Orton a guy who could learn from Chandler after getting no shot in Orlando

    Then re-signing JR and Novak probably bringing on Junior Junior Swish as our 3rd PG gives us a very good roster

    G- Lin/Kidd/Smith
    G- Smith/White/Shumpert
    F- Anthony/Prince/Novak
    F- Stoudemire/Martin
    C- Chandler/Jeffries/Orton

    Prince could act as our Battier
    Martin as our Haslem

    2 guys who add to our already solid defense pushing us into elite category
