    Default Off-Season Keepers and Additions

    Who should we keep and who should we add?

    I believe we need to keep:

    Felton
    Prigioni
    Shumpert
    Melo
    Copeland
    Martin

    without a doubt, anyone else in my opinion should retire or is expendable.

    Add:

    Chris Paul is prize addition.

    A consistent 3 point shooting 2 guard.

    A PG that can penetrate to the basket.

    SIZE: We need defensive rebounding big men the most

    There's no chance we could sign a max gut like Paul with our cap other than sign and trade right?

    I think we will need to ad size and a consistent 2 guard.

    The Knicks need to convince Jason Kidd, Marcus Camby and Amar'e Stoudemire to retire. Let JR Smith walk away in free agency. Trade Tyson Chandler, Steve Novak and Raymond Felton. Try and sign K-Mart for one more year. The only players that should be in the Knicks' long term plan are Melo, Shumpert, Prigioni, and Copeland.

    They shopped Amare all summer. He is uninsurable and his knees have had it. He looked terrible ion GAME 6 and while he was productive in the regular season off the bench he's a 19 million dollar sub. No NBA team wants him..PERIOD.

    Knicks need to target Steisma this off season Wolves are likely going to cut him. Knicks should pacakge the ronnie brewer second rounder and some expirings to the wolves and pick that guy up to be the full time back up. The knicks need reliable (younger) size and he is underrated right now having played for the Wolves. I really doubt any of the center prospects fall to the knicks at 24 so I think they should focus on getting the best overall player available with that pick to add overall depth.

    Also the knicks got to trade Novak.... Not because he is bad. I actually think he is good, but him DNP most of the playoffs means the knicks need to get a guy who can get minutes under Woodson. Who for idk, the knicks would have to trade him to a team that needs outside scoring and unfortunately his salary doesn't quite add up to anyone else's so the knicks would likely have to take on salary.

    You suggestions do not build a championship team. The Knicks will ride Amare, Novak , Kidd, and Camby who should politely walk away but won't because they make 19 million, 4 million, 3 million, and 4.5 million respectively. They are 3 has beens and a NEVER WAS NOVAK.

    We have 6 months until the pre-season.....
    This board begins to blow when you hear the following :

    1. " We need to get rid of Stat "............Stat will be a knick for the next 2 seasons. He has an uninsured and a contract that nobody would take ( nobody ..........In 2 years he will be gone end of story.

    2. No team is taking Novak...........he shoots 3's and nothing else.......so does Battier, Copeland, Miller and many others.....His signing a mistake.....the ONLY team that may take him is Dumbtonio's Lakers.

    3. Felton.........again no team would tarde for him there is no reason...he will be the Knicks starting PG next season...


    4. Prigioni will not come back to the Knicks.....Woodson is too erratic.

    5. Maybe we try and trade TC but what he lacks offensively is disgraceful and not sure what teams will do....

    Maybe a trade Grant Hill, Chris Paul, Deandre Jordan and first rounder for Melo and Chandler



    Line-up for 2013 start.
    Felton
    Shump
    Melo
    Copeland
    TC

    Duh man but thats the damn problem no one has patience for this team and automatically falls into gloom and doom when things don't go our way. Down from the owner, to the media, to the fans. All that does is lead us to disappointment. Instead the knicks should try to put players in place now and build a culture of winning now that when Amare and Tyson come off the books (maybe to be re-signed for a much more realistic number).

    The knicks need to get better roleplayers and better overall depth. Get Tyson a legitimate Center to play the 5 behind him. Go after and find a real SF to play SF as a starter. Increase Cope's minutes and cut some of JR's.

    Felton/Prigioni
    Shump/JR
    ???/Cope
    Melo/Stat/Kmart
    Chandler/??? (I hope the knicks go for Steisma)

    Trade Novak for something. He has value because he is a respectable shooter who can get hot. On a team with lots of shooters or in need of a shooter he would be great.

    Anyhow make those moves and double down on the successes we had this year. The knicks need to spend the regular season perfecting a system that would work better in the playoffs like the flex Offense. And then make another run. Trust me in 2015 if the knicks have a team that has had 50 wins over the last 3 seasons they won't have to overpay players (with extra years included) to come to NY unlike before.

    I am a massive knicks fan, but the knicks management are seriously Dick Heads for who they have let go and who they have signed ! Their attitude is to buy quick championships, which is just stupid. you need patience , draft well and stop bringing in old hacks from other clubs who have had their day in the sun. Kidd, Stat, Chandler etc should never have been recruited. Look at all the awesome young kids we lost for those players?

    Now we are totally ****ed - Got a team full of old hacks who need to retire , and we have hardly any youth ! Just stupidity as far as i am concerned !

    we should be looking to have a prolonged period of success over 5-7 years, rather than buy single championships here and there ! until we learn this and the management changes their strategy, we wont ever win a championship sadly IMO
