Raja Bell or Posey
I could live with that!
I know the Bell and Smith are long shots, especially Bell. But, I do not think it is out of the realm to get Smith for Frye and an uprotected #1. If bell is not available I would go after Posey in the off season. I think he could be signed for the Mid, or see if we could get Miami to sign and trade him. Posey can play the 2 spot and he is an awesome perimiter defender. I know he is on the block this season so he is worth a look in my opinion. Maybe Jeffries get's that deal done, even though I would HATE to give Miami the type of Player that Jeffries would give them. Randolph is totally do-able. Portland is looking to dump him and his off the court issues. He has a HUGE contracr, BUT he does produce, unlike Rose. He would at least give the Knicks a strong rebounder and scorer in the post. Would make a Frye trade more bearable. Also, Balkman could play the 4 and the 3. I would try to keep either Frye or Lee but I think Curry is and should be the center piece that the Knicks build around. He has 10 years ahead of him in this league so the team should be built around him. The inside - outside game could be very strong with the Knicks. So keeping Crawford is huge in my plan. Crawford, Robinson, Marbury in the guard rotation is big as well as if we could land Posey or bell. Bruce Bowen is another guy that would be awesome on the Knicks. Again, strong perimiter D from the 2 spot.
