    Default Last Roster Spot

    Oscar Bellfield, Chris Copeland, Mychel Thompson, John Shurna or Henry Sims

    Who get's the spots?
    (I am assuming Wallace gets the spot.)

    Current Roster:
    PG:
    Felton
    Prigioni
    Kidd

    SG:
    JR Smith
    Brewer
    Shumpert

    SF:
    Melo
    Novak
    White

    PF:
    Stat
    Thomas
    Wallace

    C:
    Tyson
    Camby

    I think Copeland or Shurna get the spot. Hard decisions.

    I think rebounding is going to be a big issue for this team.

    As in we will struggle or be great at it? We will probably be a really highly ranked rebounding team if anything.

    What else does Shurna bring to the table other than 3 pointers?

    No - I mean I think rebounding will be a weak area for the team. Little physical strength down low.

    Shurna and Novak are both lights out shooters. Imagine JR Smith cutting to the whole and having two perimeter shooters open to pass to?

    Also, Shurna has a driving ability.

    Give it to Shurna, dude.

    He's Novak endorsed plus he can get to the rim, he'll drain the trey, he'll do all these good things for us.

    I'm all of Shurna as well. If not him then pick up Josh Howard to back up Melo and call it a day.

    Which ever one can play PF better which is Shurna I believe.

    Why did we have to sign james white.. We have so many better options even in training camp than him...

    Not a major contract, if we need the spot, we'll cut him. Even that last roster spot is not guaranteed either, meaning he might not even make it to December. There are so many names that fly around on the waiver wire when rosters get cut down.

    I don't think we can cut White.

    Doesn't guaranteed mean he stays the year?

    No the Knicks can cut him. But the Knicks will still need to pay him the guaranteed salary he would be due. The Knicks just end up paying for dead weight. It may make the decision to cut him a little harder. Guaranteed versus a non guaranteed player....if all things equal.

    No way we are a poor rebounding team with Chandler and Camby as Stellar rebounders, Melo can board for his position and STAT is solid. KT and Sheed will still be physical on the boards plus JR/Kidd are great rebounders for their positions. We ranked 18th last year and our back ups for the front court were Jorts and JJ, think we'll be fine.

    I got Copeland because he's another big body.

    I think Shuma is the better of the two but with Novak what's the point.

    Not a huge Copeland fan (plays too weak) but if there is gonna be a postion that there is potential for injury its the 4 spot and we need as many ready bodies as possible.

    I've been going back and forth between our preseason game and the Yankees game. I gotta say from what I've seen every single one of these guys looks useless. TMac made a mistake, we coulda used him. Thompson and Copeland looked beyond turrrble

    Copeland is a terrible basketball player.
