Latest Knick Rumors
As the Finals approach and the major part of the NBA offseason looms closer, expect the Real GM Trade Checker to be hit massively by bored NY journalists this summer.
Although Kurt Thomas was the teams leading rebounder and second in blocked shots, Knicks head coach Lenny Wilkins is looking for a bigger power forward. Additionally, the continuing improvement of Mike Sweetney makes it much easier for Isiah to shop Kurt Thomas around. One big plus for teams was Kurt Thomas' ability to earn high stats with a damaged pinkie. The only problem is the 20 percent trade kicker in Thomas' $30 million extension as reported by the NY Daily News may scare off some GMs.
Magic and C-Webb
The Knicks as well as almost every other team have spoken to the Magic about the number 1 pick and also are monitoring the financial situation in Sacremento with Chris Webber being the focal point.
Word out of LA is that no one appears to be coming back next year with the Lakers looking at a complete makeover similar to the Bulls when Michael Jordan retired the second time. Additionally, the bright lights and media power of NY is apparently attracting Kobe Bryant.
You get a different read on this guy with every win and loss. Right now with the Finals high it may appear Rasheed Wallace looks to resign with the Pistons but if a horrible loss or a sweep takes place, you know he'll be talking about the Knicks again.
