    Nyk Logo Earl Watson to the Knicks?

    The Thunder have one too many point guards now that they traded Petro for a first and Chucky Atkins. Anyway, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], via [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], reports that Earl Watson may be the next guy on the move in OKC, and maybe to the Knicks for Malik Rose.

    What do you guys make of this?

    Isn't he like 5'7? Also, I thought he was playing in Europe. I don't think it's a good idea to have 2 guys under 5'10 on the same team. But if D'antoni thinks he would help us, I'm all for it.

    Never mind, I was confusing him with someone else. I don't know anything about him.

    He isn't bad. He's started before, but it'd be a like a situation where you have two backups. Ward-Eisley kind of stuff. Hell, that's not the worst thing after Steph.

    He is coming off reconstruction surgery of his thumb. He is a pretty good talent and his numbers should go up with consistent playing time.

    Good trade.

    Malik Rose is terrible and we need a backup PG. Earl Watson expires before 2010 and he's a good defensive minded backup PG.

    Lol. Where you thinking about earl boykins? Yea all the earls look alike.
    That would be a good trade for us. Earl watson has been a solid pg since coming out of UCLA. He has been on our radar since way back.

    I've always liked Watson, he's a solid PG, good vision on the court, creates good shots for his teammates and has a decent long-range shot.
    He's kinda like Duhon, they are both very tidy players who do their things right every night.

    i agree MSG before we do anything else we need to get a Center then everything will be uphill from there

    Sean Wlliams is in the D League now so anyone can sign him now right?

    I don't think so, he's still under contract with the Nets. You can only sign people from the d league with no association with a nba team. But we probably wouldn't have to give up much to trade for him. Donnie should look into it.

    Although Sean Williams showed some potential and is a verry good shot blocker he s not doing good in D league and has big characters problems. Maybe the Nets are right when they don't want him in their team right now.

    we dont need any of them....they will only take us to a first round sweep and out of the lottery. Lets stay focussed, sean williams is a good pickup tho.
