    Default Cheikh Samb a Knick?

    At the end of this article, Isola says Knicks were impressed by Cheikh Samb yesterday and may offer him a 10day deal.

    IMO, his size and shotblocking ability deserve a tryout. Maybe DAntoni can get him to fill that need efficiently without messing up the offense.

    Missing link? He'll be lucky to get any minutes. But, I do wanna see him in there with the first unit to see if we finally get some defense.

    Couldn't hurt, in the long run, to get some size on the bench. As long as there's a roster spot open I don't have a problem with it.

    Why not?
    He has size and he can block some shots.

    What do the Knicks and Cheikh Samb have in common?

    Payback due from Brandon Roy... too bad we aint getting a chance until next year.

    No, because of the fact that Brandon Roy dunked on him.As bad as the Knick defense was in the final seconds of that Portland game, they never allowed Brandon Roy to get a game winning dunk.

    cool, he's worth a shot. He's tall (7'1) and has great shot blocking ability its nice to have someone come in and block shots for a change. Who knows he could work out for us.

    jajajja, now thats what I call seeing the glass half full homey.

    The Knicks didnt allow a dunk in that final play versus Portland last week, but allowing that layup was just as bad... I dont see the difference.

    Who would base a signing decision on one play? I mean, the play happened a month ago and he tried out yesterday.

    Maybe if we had him on that last play versus Portland, Brandon Roy wouldve gotten stuffed for a change.

    Anyways, maybe he's not gonna be signed... Isola may be wrong and theyll go for another DLeaguer.

    If we waive Marbury and have three spots, I say bring in Samb, Big Fella Jr. and Conroy.

    I voted "waste of roster space" but then I saw that he is from Senegal which made me change my mind. Just joking. I don't think that he is the center we need for this system.

    Default Cheikh Samb worth a shot until we get Thabeet

    Why not use one of our roster spots for a shot blocking prospect like Samb?

    You realize that after March 2nd, we can release Starbury and have four open roster spots (we currently have three).

    That means Samb and Pat Ewing Jr and a point guard project and something else.

    D'Antoni said anyone they sign from the D league isn't going in his rotation. Their only doing it for bodies on the practice squad.

    So who cares?

    Samb seems like a reasonable pick-up. Knicks need more size (no homo), so we can get it from acquiring samb.


    I'm hearing Pat Ewing jr. might not be coming to NY because we're loaded with so many sg/sf type of players, so adding another would be a waste.
