    Default Which 3 players do we cut?

    I posted this in another thread, but i would really want to see some feedback on it, so....

    If the season started today we would need to drop 3 of our current 18 players, or more to fit in guys from summer league/ other free agents... which 3 players would you drop? roster can be found at

    i dont think we WOULD have to cut this many due to sign and trades or trades flat out that will be coming up...(which they will be more than a 2 person deal)..NOR do i believe we have 18 players on our roster! Bruno Sundov and Jermaine Jackson are Free Agents that WONT be resigned. and even if you did cut it down to 15 NO the roster would still be booked...

    BUT to answer the question heres the three..ill cut it down from 16 to 13.

    Allan Houston-- I respect what he has done for us and I still believe he is one of the purest shooters in the game BUT thats when he can walk. and im sure your going to say well miss him when he gets healthy and signs with Detroit. and the answer is a still NO i wont for me. hes not worth that money and we can cut A LOT out of it if we buy him out this offseason...for me it's H-2-NO!

    Penny Hardaway-- I know hes an expiring contract etc etc. but i really dont think too many people are looking to get under the cap by taking a bite on this guy. but seeing i need to cut someone...HE GONE!

    and last this ones tough...i was thinking Jackie Butler because well why not? and I like Maliks defensive pressure (he also has three years left on his contract so itd be hard)...Mo Taylor has 2 years but thats the kind of expiring contract we could use. my pick would either have to be Jackie Butler or Malik Rose

    anyone agree...?

    why would you cut sweetney, i'm surprised that so many of us here are so negative about him.

    If i'd be able to cut 3 players out, i would give up on hardaway asap, houston and maybe rose

    hardaway- expiring contract, we dont really need him anymore now that we assembled our bench and acquired richardson

    houston-large contract but i respect what he has done for ny over the years. i doubt he will be what he used to be with those knees of his, maybe he could sign with the pistons

    taylor-id like to see him play more definsivly like rose, but we just didnt see him play like that this year

    jackson and sundov will be free agents

    Can't cut Penny 'cause his expiring contract is trade bait in feb. (like timmy's) for teams looking to get under the cap next year. Along with our rookies and picks, these two contracts are the only assets we have left since we are capped out.

    Now why the hell would someone suggest we cut sweets? He has a rookie deal and, barring a trade, is our starting PF. He's also the only Knick who has some appeal to other teams (because of his rookie deal and upside).

    We should cut Jermaine and Sundov. The amnesty clause should be used to cut Rose and his 4 year deal instead of Allan. If Allan comes back and realizes he should shut it down, I'm pretty sure he will retire.

    Don't give up on Butler, he's only 20 and can be developed into a serviceable player.

    Mo shouldn't be cut, his post game will prove valuable to us.
