    Default MILLER signs w/ POR; Will Walsh finally make offer to Sessions?

    Seems like Walsh now has to move on to plan-D (which should have been plan-A). Make an offer to Sessions & Lee already!

    Default Miller in Portland - Where to for Lee?

    If Miller signs with Portland, then who has cap space for Lee? Lee's alternatives are diminishing. I do not see a sign and trade with a team that is going to pay Lee what he and his agent appear to believe he is worth.

    I think that there is a good chance Lee may even take a one year contract and be unrestricted next year. If so, we will have some money for Sessions.

    The ideal situation would be for Nate and Lee to sign 1 year offers and still allow us to retain their Bird-Rights. If they really want to stay in New York that would be the best option for them and the Knicks. This way we could sign them again next year regardless of what our cap situation is like. We could give them money that would make them happy without worrying about the cap. Essentially we would sign them after we sign a max free-agent.

    I agree. Lee really has no other options right now. Either sign for one year or take 8-mil a year (or go to Greece).

    The only sign-n-trade Knicks should consider is if Boozer or Bosh are coming here.

    Knicks should offer Sessions a 4-5 year deal, and give a large chunk this year (as much as cap allows) so we can keep his 2010 salary low.

    Honestly i love how Donnie Walsh is mad calculated at making his moves.

    It's pretty gangsta to not budge on a player, especially one that we want to keep. Sure now David Lee's ego is severly bruised (as he found out no team thinks he's is worth as much as he thinks he is worth), but now he has something to prove to NY if he decides to resign for less money he intended for.

    I would offer sessions between 5-8/yr through life of a 4 year deal.

    i'm assuming that last year of his contract he will be nicer than the 1st year of his contract.

    meaning his salary should increase each year.
