    We can't fill our rosters with athletes. We need someone who can shoot from the 3 point line and not just Novak. Heat have Ray Allen, Shane Battie, and Chalmers to kick out to when LBJ and D wade drive in.

    Yeah I change my opinion after reading up on the topic online..... The Knicks may have to keep Fields, as bad as this contract is; from a basketball POV keeping fields is the smart move. If the Knicks can't find a good SG from a trade before the 3 day hiatus ends. They may need to keep fields for depth, and to spell JR if he goes shoot crazy. Yeah J Kidd can do that to but Kidd at the 2 isn't how the Knicks would want to look if JR is injured right before the playoffs.

    Yeah it's obviously overpaying but unless "flight" kills it in the summer league Fields may be the best SG the Knicks can get for next season and no guarantee they could find an upgrade even after that.

    Even if JR is the starter he needs someone to spell him so he doesn't get run into the ground and right now there no guarantees that the Knicks will even be able to get a reliable SG who can do that. Not to mention play heavy minutes if JR was to get injured. Also his 3rd year he would be an 10 expiring and his deal doesn't go past the 2015 expiration date.

    So yeah just thought I would share my change in opinion.

    Metro i agree that James White is prob better than Fields but didnt you say in another trhead that White is not the answer at the 2 guard spot?

    Who can we even go after?

    I like Jodie Meeks, outside shooter...but not many guys on the market that are legit....we prob have to sign some scrub like Evans or Bogans

    Its funny cause young, mayo, brewer, foye, hell even barbosa are all better SG and Landry makes either more money or more years than all of them. But hey the raptors thought they were being smart to **** block the knicks from getting Nash...

    Also its cool the knicks were smart enough to get brewer to keep JR from running himself into the ground and not relying on Kidd to be the only backup able to play the 2 guard.

    I am happy they overpaid him I dont think we get Brewer if Landry is here, hell Corey Brewer is better also we should have used him instead of waiving him.

    They both suck and James White isn't gonna get enough playing time to even judge.

    But honestly I know a lot of you are on Fields because he's done terrible ever since Melo came but as bad as he is he's better than White.

    Not even.

    Fields doesn't even make the 15 man roster on the Knicks.
    Stop remember rookie pre-Melo Fields.
    Fields as finished as Amar'e, despite his age.
    He moves terrible with and without the ball.
    Seems like he doesn't even work out anymore.
    Foot work and foot speed is sluggish, not springy.

    As little playing time as white might get he might actually outscore Landry this year. Serves the raptors right for trying to play with our roster money and keeping us out of the Steve Nash party.

    I do think that Landry will be an effective player eventually but not in time for the raptors to be relevant this year.
