Most Knick fans realize we desperately need a shot-blocking center, preferably an athletic one to be able to run in D'Antoni's system. (I'm not sure Donnie or Mike D realize this since all we seem to be going after is guards). Camby would have been perfect, but we missed out on that opportunity.
Who should we go after? Let's be realistic here, no dream scenarios (I don't think we're getting Josh Smith).
I was thinking of Sean Williams. He would be the ideal Center for D'anotni's system. Apparently New Jersey offered Sean Williams and Marcus Williams to Denver for Marcus Camby, but Denver declined. So they're willing to trade him.
What about Darko Milicic? A straight up trade of Curry for Milicic would work. Plus, Milicic has one less year on his contract.
Sean Williams isnt a center. At 6'10, I dont know if he has the size to deal with a lot of the bigger guys at the 5. Plus I dont know if the Nets would be willing to trade within the division. I like the idea though.
1-nets will never trade with us
2-darko does not play good defense
3- we don't need a shotblocker, we need a defender. coach d will probably find a way to get chandler to start, so we'll get shot blocking, but what we really need is a defender, because none of our big men can really defend , except for maybe balkman who's undersized. just because your a shotblocker doesn't mean your a good defender. some guys like andrew bogut and darko are nothing more than decent defenders. In fact, darko is weak compared to many centers
Sean Williams is 6"10, so what?
Ben Wallace was 6"8/6"9 for his career and strickly played center only.
Williams plays bigger than most centers, and has a freakish wingspan.
Doubting his ability to play center only because he's 6"10 is really foolish.
Mutombo is on the market, why not pick him up?
we're a year away from the draft and ya'll thinking about rubio?
how the hell we're gonna get that no. 1 pick?
turth is, that guy is da bomb man. he's no doubt the successor to Steve Nash. that kid will rock.
David Harrison is a shot blocking center
personally I Dont think we are going to have to worry about any top picks next year. Just my personal opinion that Mike D is a real deal coach, and our players are going to have a real deal year under him.
just an opinion.
Diop would have a been a good solution, but now that he's gone back to Dallas, would should try something for Dalembert, do you guys think that the 76ers would have some interest on Curry or even Zach?
