It's not like we're offering him the full MLE for 5 years. We're thin at SG so Donnie is looking at cheap backups. It's not a big deal...
wow i just picked up stackhouse in my 2k9 knicks franchise last night
got offered him for bum ass wilcox
i also traded lee for bynum, LA took it in a heartbeat
knicks should try that
He could help this season, and maybe more, he would be a nice backup.
Another rumor, another player we won't sign. Wake me up when Donnie actually does something.
No moves in the 2008 offseason
no moves in the 2009 offseason.
And people wonder why I be buggin about this 2010 plan.
Two offseasons without any upgrade.
Players like Stackhouse, Grant Hill, and Kidd are great veteran coaches to have on your bench....but com'on 20 years ago they were all playing H.S. B-Ball (1989).
kiya i have posted this in other threads. people complain about what moves we didnt make, or what lil moves we have
the question I have, and keep asking and no one everrrr seems to respond issss
WHAT MOVES WOULD YOU HAVE MADE, AND IF YOU WERE TO MAKE THEM, COULD YOU ?
. We dont have anything to play with.
STOP THIS RIDICULOUS CRY BABY BULL ISH ABOUT HOW WE HAVENT DONE ANYTHING, WHEN REALISTICALLY THERE IS NOTHING AND I MEAN LITERALLY NOTHING WE CAN DO. OUR TWO MOST VALUABLE ASSETS MAKE AROUND 3 MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR THEREFORE THEY ARE ALMOST UNTRADABLE FOR EQUAL VALUE.
WHAT COULD WE DO
NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING
WE CANT DO ANYTHING.
SO STOPP PLEASE EVERY ONE STOPPPP SAYING THAT DONNIE IS SITTING ON HIS HANDS DOING CRAP TO PICK UP PLAYERS.
HE HAS NO CHOICE.

Knicks Look To Shed Another 2010 Contract And Bring In Stackhouse
Aug 05, 2009 11:21 PM EST
Alan Hahn of Newsday reports that the Knicks could shed a 2010 contract as part of the team's pursuit of the unrestricted free-agent Jerry Stackhouse.
The only non-rookie contracts remaining on the Knicks' payroll for the 2010-2011 season are that of Eddy Curry and Jared Jeffries. Presumably the Knicks are seeking a trade of one of the two.
It was reported earlier this week that the Knicks are intent on clearing more cap room for next summer before the team would sign restricted free-agent Ramon Sessions to an offer sheet.

I agree that Donnie's options are limited due to his 2010 plan not to mention we don't have a lot of strong trade chips to work with, but, the moves he has attempted to make are head scratchers IMHO
He wanted to somewhat abandon his 2010 plan and waste precious 2010 cap space on an over the hill Grant Hill (no pun intended).
The same for Jason Kidd
and we are just starting to look desperate bringing in players like Jason Williams, Tinsley and Stackhouse.
Look Mike D's system is very player freindly and it has the ability to bring out the best in players, so I can see the intrigue in bringing in those players, but at the same time it is a little embarassing to see these type players being the player pool we pull from to help improve our roster
I like Donnie Walsh a lot, I think the man shows a lot of poise, and he is still humble after 20 years on the job. I am not for his 2010 plan much only because I cant recall a contender being built that way, but his best argument to that could be results.
We need a veteran presence in the locker room. We have no leaders. Q-Rich played that role last year, and he's gone. That's why Walsh is going after guys like Kidd, Hill, Williams, Stackhouse.
