    Rumor Jalen Rose will be gone soon

    Jalen Rose didn't play on Friday and missed practice yesterday. His Ferris Bueller-like absences may mean the Knicks are trying to buy out his contract. Or it could be as simple as a knee problem.

    Rose did not attend yesterday afternoon's open practice at Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey due to "personal reasons," according to Isiah Thomas. The Knicks coach wouldn't answer a direct question about whether he would even make the team. When asked, Thomas instead gave the peace sign on his way to the team bus, smiling like a Cheshire cat.

    Thomas elected not to play Rose Friday night against the Nets. The 33-year-old undoubtedly hoped to challenge for the small forward spot this season, but Thomas didn't play him much in the preseason.

    I hope the rumor is true and Jalen Rose's contract will be bought out. Less chance that Isiah makes another foolish move and trade away an expiring contract for another loser and sending us further down salary cap purgurtory.

    This would def be good for the knicks since it looks like Rose won't be getting much playing time. Who knows how long before he starts complaining about lack of pt and that is the last thing that the knicks need.

    SO who do we get to take that plast spot in the roaster?

    Do we get a guard? Perhaps a vet who is KNOWn for defense at that position?

    Do we get a PF? Can't cato and Frye and Lee play that position already?

    Do we get a Center? Well we have THREE of them there too!

    DO we get a 3? isn't that what Jalen already is? Why would we didtch him and get another?

    TO me the only option we have to replace his spot is a guard. A guard who is a vet and is known to play hard as a vet. Like Gary Payton. He took a transition from starter to backup and did GREAT in his time on the heat!

    Thoughts?

    id say its a good move.

    admitting failure?
    ughh i suppose.. but heres how i look at it.
    we needed a SF last season.. we got one
    we didnt need AD.. we got rid of him
    we needed draft picks.. we got Denvers for AD&JRose and we picked Balkman.

    Balkman for Antonio Davis sounds good to me.

    Better off without him.Isiahs obviously had it in mind for some time judging by jalens minutes in preseason.Balkmans emergence in those games was just the nail in the coffin.Rose was never gonna see much action,along with the fact that jeffries will be back in a couple weeks.
