    To confirm, if Camby sign-and-trade does go through, the mini mid-level still goes to Jason Kidd yes
    Sweet! Love to have Camby back and ready to slide in for STAT when he begins to pong.

    AMAZING NEWS.....

    A deal for Camby is possible, maybe even probable "in next 24 hours." Rockets would get back pieces, but won't be for all 4 Knicks offered.

    ****, cant believe we had to give up Harrelson

    oh well, as long as the Cambyman is healthy and terrorizing off the bench, its good to have him on board. not sure how he will fit next to Tyson when subbing for Amare.. I guess we will see a ton of alleyoops next season!!!

    Awesome that we got Camby back. I wonder if KMart would even consider a veteran's minimum contract to go to war against the stacked Eastern Conference powerhouse teams next year? I know these guys are getting up there in age, but adding guys like Kidd, Camby & KMart would get this team some valuable experience in postseason play who are all proven contributors on winning teams. Probably a pipedream at this point but hey, you never know what these guys are thinking about behind the scenes.

    I hope Grunwald has another trick up his sleeve. Even though we need an SG right now, the Knicks' front office should focus on getting K-Mart, IMO. With the recent acquisition of Camby, its clear that our strength is going to be our frontcourt.

    Martin is the missing link for the Knicks to truly be versatile enough to handle any kind of team. As Paul 1335 mentioned in another post, Woody can put Camby and TC together for big opposing frontcourts like the Lakers and Grizzlies. When teams decide to put in stretch 4s in like Nowitzki, Bargnani, and Rashard Lewis, that's where Martin comes in. He's mobile enough to guard smaller players, strong enough to push against post-up players, and tall enough to guard some of the smaller centers in the league.

    If we somehow get K-Mart, oh boy, the rest of the league better watch out.

    Is it out of the question that we match Toronto for Fields? We only have the BAE and vet min exceptions left to sign players so keeping Landry would be a cap buster but we wouldn't be looking for another wing player if we kept him.

    I think James White was signed as that replacement wing player tiger. I don't expect the Knicks to match Landry's offer sheet from the Raptors, that salary is way too high for his production. Plus he regressed pretty badly last season so who knows what you're gonna get out of him this year? He's a hard working kid & I'm sure he'll have a very solid career in Toronto, but right now the Knicks need to be smart about how they utilize their payroll. Getting lowcost reserve options like Kidd, Camby & White helps to keep our luxury tax threshold somewhat more manageable 2 years down the road. Just imagine what adding Landry's poison pill contract year in 2014 would do to our payroll, it isn't a pretty situation to consider. I think White will give us an athletic enough wing player to fill in some minutes off the bench & allow us to run an uptempo style game when Lin is running the offense. When Kidd is running the show we'll probably utilize a more traditional halfcourt set & a lot of pick & rolls with STAT & Tyson with Melo running iso plays & post ups.

    I think Grunwald has a trick or two left up his sleeve, he is apparently an expert at manipulating the cap. We will match and sign Lin. I would expect us to offer Martin the BAE and offer a S&T of Gadzuric & cash for an SG.

    That gives us an offseason grading of A!
