    Default Knicks Get Duhon!!!!!!!!!!!!

    From ESPN . . .
    NEW YORK -- Chris Duhon has reached a verbal agreement with the New York Knicks on a two-year contract, Duhon's agent said.

    Duhon
    "The chance for Chris to be a starter was too much to pass up," Duhon's agent, Kevin Bradbury told 1050 ESPN New York's Andrew Marchand.
    Duhon had also been talking with the Orlando Magic. Bradbury said the Magic never offered Duhon a contract.
    Bradbury said the Knicks have made it clear that Duhon could start, which could mean that Stephon Marbury's days with the Knicks are numbered. Marbury is in the final year of his contract.

    Duhon is a decent player, not a long term player. He'll bounce around the league.

    Its really stupid to waive Marbury now without giving him a chance to play. I never understood why even people talk about waiving the best player on your team.

    I just wanna start by sayin in no way is duhon better then marbury...in no way is he a better player for running an uptempo offense and in no way will i support donnie walsh if he cuts marbury.

    Now that thats outta the way...i like this signing. I think chris duhon is a solid all around point guard who doesnt have many weaknesses. Hes not great at anything but he doesnt turn the ball over that much and hes a better defender then any other of our guards except marbury.

    Isiah wouldve given him a 5 year 30mil contract...he seems to like those alot. He gave that deal to both Double J's (Jerome and Jared). Im a fan of Donnies first 2 moves...I think Gallinari gives us a versatile player who will prove alot of people wrong. Duhon gives us a solid point guard off the bench.

    duhon provides the type of point guard that will get the ball two our young players like chandler and gallinari more
    itll no longer be crawford bringin the ball up or marbury and an immediate chuck
    now we will have a more balanced offense that can pass first


    marbury is a better all around player but unfortunately i dont see much developement going on while he runs the point

    however i am not opposed to having duhon and marbury on the floor at the same time
    marbury could score 20 a game no prob and with no opposition from the two spot and when duhon comes out marbury shifts to the one

    however there was also another report of ellis being interested in playing for the knicks.... if we could land ellis he would be ideal at the number two in this offense however i still dont like ellis aas a long term answer at the one
    i think the one should be addressed in the draft so we can have a home grown guy

    At least they only signed him for two years. Shows management is through with Isiahs blank check approach to signing players. I'm not for releasing Steph like Isola says but he is pretty credible, someone has got to moved to make room for Duhon. You would think D'antoni had a say in this and just thinks Steph is not a fit for his system.

    True Metro.Very true.But I'm betting that Walsh might use Stephon's contract to get 1 or more players whose contract(s) expire in 2010.On July 9 when trading resumes look for rumors of Steph and Randolph to be moved.

    It will be very very interesting to see what the Knicks' next move is for Marbury. Duhon is a good pick-up this offseason. If the Knicks have given feelers for his agent that Duhon is likely to start, then Marbury's days are surely numbered. Wasn't expecting his exit to come in the form of Duhon though. But maybe we could get something good thru a trade involving Marbury.

    Good post, I do like this move, and it would be great if Marbury can coexist with Duhon running point, switching on and off. I hope they don't trade Marbury over this move. I'm just wondering what they are gonna do with our extra large loud (curry, zach, james).

    buy-out james, trade Randolph and keep Curry. Curry doesn't play half-bad when hes away from Zach

    you know, I almost want Marbury gone, because of Crawford. they can't play together. I would rather have Crawford gone though.

    PG Duhon
    SG Marbury/Crawford (one gone)
    SF Gallinari/Richardson (Q will only play half season because of injurys
    PF Lee
    C Curry

    That squad could win 35 games, no joke

    Maybe if they get Ellis..

    Marbury
    Ellis
    Q or Rooster
    Lee
    Curry
    6 man- Duhon
    Trade Zach and Craw for picks next year, and re-build this team!

    It's been a while since the start of the NBA season has been as exciting. But with all these big-player names and impact players likely to be changing locations, it's gotten me looking forward to next season. It's always great for entertainment when NBA gets a shake-up once in a while. LOL!
