no, give up hah
What do you guys think of Josh Smith? I know it’s probably unlikely we’ll get him but I’m just wondering why the Knicks haven’t shown any slight interest at all. They still might have a shot. Or maybe they just don’t want to waste their time. Smith is a perfect fit for No-D’Antoni’s fast paced style. The guy runs the floor, an unstoppable finisher on the fast break, a decent jumpshooter, and plays impressive defense with a near 3.0 blocks per game. Furthermore he has appeared to have upped his overall defense as well. He’s the next Marion. He’s restricted, and regardless, the only way we could get him is thru a sign-and-trade. And of course it wouldn’t be wise for us if we take him in without getting rid of any of Randolph’s, Curry’s, or Crawford’s contract along the way. I know it’s far-fetched especially considering the Hawks wanting to resign Childress and Bibby. But what do you guys think? Maybe now that the Hawks have tasted the Playoffs, they might not mind going over the cap. He and Gallinari at the forward positions could be great for an uptempo game. Josh Smith’s reportedly been talking recently with the 76ers.
he'll be a great member of the team, but him coming here is like mj finding a fountain of youth and accepting 10$ a year to play for the knicks.
The Knicks have 5 small forwards, why do we need 6? It's already bad enough that Donnie Walsh drafted a 5th small forward. Do you want the Knick starting lineup to look like this?
PG Danilo Gallinari(SF)
SG Quentin Richardson(SF)
SF Josh Smith
PF Wilson Chandler(SF)
C Jared Jeffries(SF)
Bench: Renaldo Balkman(SF)

I'd love to have J.Smith here but I know it ain't happaning. I think a better option for us would be looking for a sign and trade with the Bobcats for E.Okafor and R.Felton (and maby some draft picks!) We give them whatever they want because there's only a few players on the roster I'd like to see stay.(Lee,Robinson,Chandler) We could kill two birds with one stone. A defencive pressance in the paint and a pass first PG.
great player...dont know how we can possibly get him
we cant go after big name free agents yet. if donnie walsh has a brain, he will wate until we get back into pre-isiah cap range, then make some moves.
