    Doesn't surprise me the Knicks have zero bigs for the game in Chicago so they needed to do something.

    They should've cut White instead of Kurt

    Looks like they signed him. Singleton has been playing in China, avg 15 ppg and 11 RBs, not exactly setting the Chinese league on fire. He should be in shape since he's played all year but he ain't KMart.

    Personally I'm upset, but looking at James Singleton per 36 minutes stat; he's basically Kurt Thomas' clone.

    Nice. But I'm not expecting much from him. FWIW, they say that the Wiz wanted to resign him badly but he opted to play in China.

    OT. That SIG is ****ing fire.

    Kurt played his final game with a broken foot...real warrior

    I too wish James White was cut

    But if Kurt truly is done then I suppose I'm ok with it...hopefully Kurt can still sit on bench and practice ala Baron Davis

    Kurt Thomas should be a coach, big man coach.

    Should be serviceable for us the rest of the way. He's athletic, can play above the rim, rebounds, Ds up, and he can shoot and score it a little bit. Outside of Copeland, the Knicks obviously are only looking for seasoned players with prior NBA experience. That's been the blueprint for this year; the prerequisite. This guy fits the bill. Nice pick up. He should help us.

    Default Never forget what Kurt Thomas has done for us

    I feel bad for Kurt if this is true. If he really cannot play this postseason, however, I understand, and hope he understands as well.

    I would not rule out having him back for next year, and I assume that Singleton could not play for us in the playoffs in any case. If Singleton is allowed to play for us in the playoffs, this all makes even more sense (as an emergency big).

    That said, I think that everyone is freaking out too much about the big man situation. The magic number for the #2 seed is 3. The Knicks can get there with just Brooklyn and the Knicks beating Indiana. The Knicks can get there with wins against Cleveland, Chorlotte, and Atlanta, or just two wins and an Indiana loss (say, Brooklyn).

    If they can get Camby, Chandler, Martin, and Wallace back for the first round, and Amare for the second round, they are fine.

    I will miss jumpers from Thomas his performance against Utah as alone he was playing with injury as 40 year old soldier.

    The Singleton move makes me think that they are going to shut down Chandler and KMart for the last five games. It also might point to Rasheed Walleace showing up again. There are rumors he might start running next week. People may not remember how well Wallace played for us earlier in the season, and what that could mean for us in the playoffs (for instance, drawing Hibbert out of the paint).
