We should let Fields walk, resign J.R, get a cheap backup SG that can hit outside shots, get a back up PG like Kidd for cheap and hopefully get a backup big for the mid level like Camby.
Knicks should offer a poison deal to restricted Raptor FA Jerryd Bayless, just to f*ck Toronto up the a$$ for stealing Laundry Folds. Knicks can use Bayless, just in case they lose Lin. he can be a dynamite player, when he's healthy. just sayin.
Knicks don't have the cap space to offer any poison pill deals to anyone.
Now it's f*ck Fields (which I been said to) and keep Shumpert. He's on Do Not Touch mode... and he's hurt.
I know Shump like FIelds has potential, but we cannot afford to wait and hope he regains form by the playoffs and if not wait til next year and yada yada...
WE NEED A SHOOTING (2) GUARD NOW!
WE NEED TO TRADE STAT (and replace him with a cheaper defensive minded option now- unless Hakeem teaches him defense too) and anyone else not named Tyson and Melo (except TC for D12)
and get a solid SG to pair with Melo. Even if that means including Shump, we see what can happen when you wait.
Imagine what Fields could have gotten us had we NOT BEEN GASSED AND LISTENED TO DUMBTONI, and struck while the iron was hot. If someone wants Shump to be included to achieve our goal, do it and don't look back. Sorry.
Its win now.
This off-season is getting off to a bad start. I'd like to keep Fields but not at that price. If Raptors offered him 6 mil, let him go.
