    Rumor Espn.com insider has Knicks going for Joe Johnson

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    So i have been saying that the most realistic move is for Joe Johnson to come to NY in 2010. He gave Mike D credit for playing him starter's minutes and developing his game. Johnson has rejected a deal from the Hawks this year. I have always seen Johnson in a Knicks uniform for some weird reason.

    Now ESPN insider, which is usually the best rumor central news, is saying that the Knicks are the #1 buyer for Johnson and/or that Johnson just wants to come to NY...if i had the insider this would be great but I don't.

    Does everyone buy this rumors and think that Johnson would fit nice with this team? He can be our main scorer and is a good passer. Thoughts?

    Will these move happen this season or after this season?

    I've always like Joe Johnson

    but without a PG or a true Center Joe Johnson would be of no use. He is better off in ATL and we are better off spending the money we would use on a Max FA on filling some gaps.

    thats the thing joe johnson can run point the line up would be
    joe
    wilson
    gallo
    jj
    lee
    and joe will be a great defener because of his size and the size of an average point guard

    he rejected an extention of some 65m over 4year, so he is a max FA...or looking for a max contract... nice player, not worth 15/16m per...

    Great. We dumped 2 years and have pinned our hopes on Joe Johnson.

    I don't know why he would leave Atlanta for the worst roster in the NBA. This franchise is cursed forever.

    Man, it sickens me when I see people give potential lineups that include Jared Jeffries. The layers of pathetic if that man is still on our roster after this season can't be overstated.

    Can we even sign Lee and Johnson? I don't think so.

    If we could (bigbigBIG if) and we add another year of slavery to our fandom, we could look forward to a potential contender if Gallo and Hill develop the year after, barring a couple trades:

    C Hill
    PF Lee
    SF Gallo
    SG Chandler
    PG Johnson

    Jeffries' expiring, 1st --> Devin Harris

    C Hill
    PF Lee
    SF Gallo
    SG Johnson
    PG Harris

    Key Bench: Chandler, Douglas, CurryExpiring.

    I don't think Jeffries is that bad. He's IMHO top 5 DPOTY.
    Honestly I would sign up to have your projected lineup.

    I honestly don't think Jeffries is that bad either! But that actually underscores my pt. of disgust with Donnie Walsh *if* he isn't traded/dumped!

    Jeffries is actually a pretty serviceable player; you consider him top5 DPOTY, and you aren't alone. He clearly has value, and clearly would have measurable value for contending teams, or teams on the brink, in particular.

    That said, this entire franchise -- by the work, words, and wisdom -- of the front office, has designated our lifeline on Plan 2010.

    Plan 2010 can, realistically, only be positioned to truly work *if* Jeffries is traded.

    His relative value for our team is -100000000000000000 because of this, even though his actual value to many other teams would be +10000000000, because he is indeed pretty solid, and has some interesting value. This is especially true since we are *simply* trying to dump him, and won't even expect to get back *any* value.

    I actually wouldn't mind the roster I mentioned above, either. but, to get that, it would take initiative on the part of our franchise -- the very same initiative they seem to be perplexed by in executing in even the most rudimentary (and fundamental) aspects of the single biggest plan we have been told: Plan 2010.

    Top 5 defensive player of the year?????

    wow Jeffries is so overrated on this forum.

    Take away his ability to take a charge and you have nothing. I can't believe some people honestly feel he is that good on defense. He gets dominated against Centers.

    Angry Consolation Prize: McGrady and Johnson

    So, we'll basically have the same roster plus Joe Johnson (if this is true) providing we get Lee back along with a few cheap players to round out the roster.

    Is this why we're pursuing McGrady? As a plan B to another declining SG?

    And still, we sputter along with no real center or PG.

    In all honesty, how much is Joe Johnson really worth? More than Lee?

    If we were to sign Johnson at $10m and Lee the same for example, we'd have $6m to spare to round out the roster with 4 more players. An average of $1.5m/player.

    ****ing Donnie. You catatonic old ****.
