    "The Knicks will be at the center of the rumor maelstrom at the predraft camp in Orlando later this month. I continue to hear that they're committed to making a serious run at trading for Kevin Garnett, Jermaine O'Neal or Pau Gasol. But the organization sees it as more due diligence than reality. In the end, they probably won't have enough to land any of the above ... In the likely event that the Knicks won't be able to trade Steve Francis, they are dead set against buying out his contract. Isiah Thomas' philosophy has been consistent on buyouts: If a player can give him anything, he keeps him. And the Knicks believe Francis still has something left."

    Francis will be a Knick until at least 13 months from now when he officially becomes an expiring contract.Until then,if they can use him or trade him they will.If he can't be traded or used he will sit home collecting checks.Bottom line,get used to it!!!!!!!!!

    my point exactly... 3 years of patience is nothing following 8 years of mediocrity...
