    Default Marbury will not be WAIVED

    "Frank Isola cites a Knicks source saying that any transaction involving Stephon Marbury will not take place until late September or early October.

    The Knicks reportedly prefer to trade Marbury and get something in return, rather than releasing him outright.

    In Macau where he is on the Olympic coaching staff, Mike D'Antoni commented on the trade of Renaldo Balkman:

    "Renaldo really had no role after we drafted Gallinari, and with the emergence of Wilson Chandler his minutes would be nonexistent," D'Antoni told The Associated Press. "So it really wasn't fair to him to keep him in a spot that he wouldn't play and also gives us an opportunity to clear up a roster spot and move on."
    Good move.

    D'Antoni runs an 8 man line up, so he's just trying to cut down the roster as short as possible.

    Marbury
    Richardson
    Chandler
    Randolph(being moved)
    Lee

    Gallinari
    Robinson
    Crawford(being moved)

    Odd guys out
    Duhon
    Curry(being moved)
    Robertson
    Jefferies
    Collins.

    If Walsh and Donny have a sucessful off season, they would subtract Curry, Zach and Jamal.

    Our 8 man rotation will be.

    Marbury (6"2)
    Richardson (6"6)
    Chandler (6"8)
    Gallinari (6"10)
    Lee (6"9)

    ^ That line up is as big as D'Antoni's Phoneix line up.
    -Marbury provides the penetration/pick and roll/scoring/assist/solid d/range
    -Richardson provides defense, rebounder, post offense, range, spot up shooting
    -Chandler provides everything.
    -Gallinari provides high IQ, range, penetration off the dribble, offense, passing, and toughness.
    -Lee provides outlet passing, high rate of rebounds, 60% FG, 80% FT...IQ on offense.

    Robinson (Barbosa)
    Duhon (Banks)
    Jefferies (Random scrub)


    ^ You could add any player we get in return for the trio of losers.

    The future is looking bright!

    That's another reason why I wasn't too upset about the Renaldo trade, we didn't get really anything in return but I couldn't see him playing a lot on this team, he would be like what Ben Wallace is in a Cavs uniform. You saw Ben for about 10 or less minutes then he was no where to be found on the court for the rest of the game.

    Yall know by now that D'Antoni likes his players being able to shoot, Renaldo just happened to lack offense (duh) he's still a good player in the end.

    Starbury on the other hand can shoot and is an all-star player so just waving him would be on the retart level, either bring someone in who can fit in with our lineup or leave him to see how he can flourish, which I know he would.

    Where are the Eddy, Jamal, and Zach trades at?

    Is it possible our staring lineup will be identical to last year's failure?

    PG-Marbury
    SG-Crawford
    SF-Q. Rich
    PF-Randolph
    C-Curry

    1. Marbury not bought out
    2. Crawford not traded (Walsh and D'Antoni think Crawford has star potential, he won't be traded)
    3. D'Antoni likes Q. Rich and will probably get major minutes if he's healthy
    4. Nobody wants Zach. The rumor now is that the Clippers wanted us to give them a first round pick along with Zach for a 2nd round pick. Essentailly giving a 1st rounder to get rid of somebody. That speaks volumes to Zach's value.
    5. No rumors at all about moving Curry. Don't know why. His value must be lower than Zach's.

    With the Balkman trade and waiving the 2 players that came from Denver, we are now at the 15 player max roster.

    Throw that lame-ass bunch of no-defense losers with a coach that doesn't care about defense and we're in for a season worse than last year's. I'm beginning to seriously question the new regime. I hope I'm wrong. Something has got to change...doesn't it?

    They're just saying he has star potential to raise his value.

    Default 8 man line-up

    Marbury is certainly more physically talented than Duhon, but Walsh did not pay the full mid-level to Duhon with the intention of making him "an odd man out."

    I am all for playing Marbury this year, but I get the impression he is not long for the Knicks. He might be valuable to a contending team at the trade deadline, but very few teams have cap space. He will be difficult to move, not because of lack of talent, but because of the amount of his contract even though it is expiring.

    I am no longer high on Q-Rich. He is not what he was when he was with Phoenix and D'Antoni. And he did not look to me as though he had lost 15 pounds from last year. Perhaps he put on more weight after the season and then took that off. Crawford I expect to start at shooting guard.

    Z-Bo can shoot from some distance. Curry has a range of about 3 feet. Neither one is a runner. Will either ever get past mid-court in transition?

    I expect to see a lot of Lee, Chandler and Gallinari.

    Because Z-Bo, Curry, Crawford and Jefferies have contracts extending through 2010, I expect that Walsh is concentrating on trades involving all of them. But he not yet into distress sales -- he wants something back.

    Patience!

    This really is good news to me. I have said it all along that I dont get the need to pursue a PG with Steph on board (even created a thread about it).
    My real fear would be if we waived him, he goes to Boston or LA and helps them win a Championship, all in while we are still looking for a starting PG. That would just be plain stupid!

    I must disagree with Metro's assestment of Duhon being an odd man out. I don't think that they bought him here not to play; they just went after him too hard for him not to clock steady minutes.

    But back to Steph, I imagine if he is not traded him getting his assist back up to around 8 or so assist a game. Now we just need to get some more players to get up and down the floor, while moving the players who cant get up and down

    yea metro, toons did have a point, you even argued to me about this deal being bad and the worst move ever because balkman brought so much to the table. And yet you say its now a great move...maybe Balkmansexuals thought twice about his ability and how he'd possibly get playing time.

    Hate to burst your bubble but it doesn't say he won't be bought out. It just says that he won't be bought out until we exhaust every possible avenue to trade him. Which makes sense. Why would u buy him out now, when u have until October.

    i like this trade/move


    balkman was somewhat injury prone and as previously stated by a few, his offense game was weak

    jefferies needs to go

    james needs to go

    curry needs to decide if he's a complete useless piece of **** or not

    q rich dropped weight, looks like he realizes he was a waste last year and needs to step it up

    Marbury's problem,coincidentally,is his head...he's like Duane Martin in "Above the Rim"...if he could get his off the court **** under control,he'd be iight.


    call me a sucker, but ive bought into a huge part of our problem last year was on the sidelines. not just isiah, but alot of other cats have a hand in there...i think theirs gonna be a big change in mentality this year and after watching 90&#37; of the games last year, thats a HUGE part of our problem.

    TO THE GARDEN!
