Part of Larry's list has been revealed. It is well known that larry wants a PF that can step in beside Eddy Curry and gather rebounds, bang and block. And three have been revealed. Theo Ratliff.. Kenyon Martin.. Alonzo Mourning.
Mourning would be the cheapest only having to use part of our MLE. or possibly the veteran minimum. His kidney doctors are in NY but thats the thing. HIS KIDNEY DOCTORS ARE IN NY. He is getting up there in age and is injury prone. he had a solid season off the bench this season and could do all things Larry wants. He also loves Larry to add.
Theo will have two years left on his 11.3 million a year contract. hes not much of a scoring threat but is considered the best shot blocker in the league. also has played for larry in the past.
and last but not least in Kenyon Martin. who has a big deal left and achy knees. knees that were never allowed to heal. and thats why he is pissed in Denver. they rag on him for not playing well or being frustrated and criticized by Karl when the truth is he was misdiagnosed just so he could come back early. with the right amount of rest. he could be fine.. but for how long? hes exactly what the knicks need. a blocker. scorer. hard hitting banger with attitude and heart. but at what price? Denver would probably want expiring contracts (we have two). Maybe if they take a contract back itll be worth it. Portland, Golden State could also be takers.
question is.. which "banger" would you rather have???
even though its a risk... id go with Kenyon Martin.
