    thats gonna be wierd if allan gets waived and then goes to some main knick rival like the nets (who might wanna add depth/shooting) or heat (same thing). i wonder how the fans are gonna react when he commes back to msg to play. of course, this is all considering that he even can come back and play...

    Monday is the deadline for using the amnesty clause to cut a player...so Houston's days as a Knick may be counted with the fingers in one hand.. looks like most fans expect him to be the victim.

    Wonder if the Knicks will jump on someone who was cut, like Brian Grant.

    we dont need another pf in brian grant



    the smart people to cut wouold be either malik rose with years on this contract (4 i think) and

    Mo taylor wit years on his contract (4 i think)


    houston only has 2 more left on his contract and he could be soon calling it quits.......

    i say keep em....

    KnickFan20-- Mo Taylor only has 2 years left on his contract, while Malik has three.

    donchris-- hilarious. the clause is names "The Allan Houston Clause"...so lets stick to that and waive Allan Houston okay? We cant trade Allan Houston we CAN trade Rose & Taylor..simple as that.

    Release Houston! = $20,000,000 saved in luxury taxes.


    I like your line up John. Only thing I'd change is have crawford start over Richardson. Or did you mean to trade Crawford for Kiralenko?

    I was discussing this topic with a friend of mine (Trin-Starr) and he came out with the idea of waiving Shandon Anderson's luxury tax, if this was possible it would make alot of sense to me. We already let him go and we are still paying his salary and tax on top of that. Maybe the NBA will let us waive the luxury tax on his contract.
