K-Mart or bust
Felton,Kidd,Melo,Jr,Camby,Thomas all have the ability to convince K-Mart to sign at least one person better be in his ear + Turiaf just signed with the Clippers, there aren't many contenders left that NEED a PF and can offer Martin decent playing time... i have a feeling he's going to either the Nets or Knicks unless he wants more than Vet min but at this point in his career who chucking up big money for K-mart, not many teams have MLE to offer either the FA market is drying up.
if KMart comes to NYK, imagine this:
not sure if this lineup ever WOULD be on the floor at one time,
but the thought just rattles the mind...
could there ever be a better defensive 5?
You also said kidd or bust haha. Seriously though, we would be the icing on the cake to this offseason. A second unit of:
Is great defensively and well spaced and offensively balanced. Would definitely not lose leads and beat most of the other second units out there.
Copeland, White and Thomas can all play garbage minutes.
K-Mart must be shoppin for more dough. He's gettin up there in age as well. The FO has like 20 of his ex team-mates to vouch for him and recruit him. If he had shown to be a good teammate to these guys in the past, he'll be here.
...But if not..
I think our perfect fit would be an enrgy player to take the charges, clean up the glass on rebs. and putbacks, and hit the occasional 15 ftr. If Lou Amundson had a lil jumper that's who'd I'd be lookin at. (Gotta like his enerygy off the bench though.)
We Should get Ivan Johnson from the Hawks. Energy on the glass, nice lil jumper. He can be the young slightly more athletic version of Kurt Thomas mentored by ..Kurt Thomas.
My list in order:
Dominic Mcguire from Golden state.
I know K-Mart is all about the Benjamins but i mean at this point in his career chasing the ring should be on his mind
Yeah definitely K-mart. Whoever we sign though it HAS to be a power forward. We are set everywhere else.
Can't believe this dude hasn't been signed yet. Knicks really need somebody with NBA finals experience. I think he could really be a mentor for Carmelo Anthony and our younger players.
KMart for the vets min would be another value deal. Jorts will probably be waived by Houston any interest in getting him back.
