Smith is what 6 mil?
Felton's 5 should be traded by then.
I'm ballparking the salaries, trying to overestimate so maybe we'll have some extra space, but that puts the knicks at 59. They're well over that now, so who's to say they'll have a problem paying the luxury tax two years from now?
Maybe grab aldridge or love, convince them to take a cut, and find a buyer for smith?
we'll have a pick in 2015, given it's not thrown away by then. Maybe we'll have a few more given that chandler/bargs/stat will have expirings next season. Tyler is a good piece it's looking like, murry too. Maybe grab Hansbrough, Asik as a cheaper alternative to Gasol. Forgot about Shump, but he's gonna be traded by then I'm pretty sure. If not, that's fine, he can be a deshawn stevenson at the worst.
Those are my ideas.
