    Default Michael Doleac

    While combo guard Jamal Crawford would be a wonderful free-agent piece with the mid-level exception or a sign-and-trade with Chicago, Isiah is also considering bringing back center Michael Doleac, who hit it off with Stephon Marbury.

    The thinking is Isiah can get Doleac with the smaller exception - $1.5 million. Doleac is not a sexy name, not even as sexy as free agent target Antonio McDyess. But the Knicks missed Doleac in the playoffs against the Nets. They had nobody to come off the bench and bang in perimeter jumpers that might've eased the triple teams on Marbury.

    "The Knicks are one of three, four teams Michael will definitely consider," his agent Glen Schwartzman said. "He enjoyed playing with Steph. He played his best ball playing with him. There was chemistry. You can't explain it. New York definitely could be the right situation."

    yes, i know it's just the NY Post, but getting doleac back would be such a great move for this preseason

    he's a perfect fit for Steph.. we lack perimeter shooters which help spread the floor for other players..

    I know he would be a great addition. when he and steph were together he made a lot of those mid range jumpers that would have werked perfectly against the Nets.

    I liked the chemistry they had on the court (Doleac and Marbury). If the Knicks can manage to get him back, it wouldn't hurt. The Knicks still need to make a bigger move before the start of this season.

    What I liked about Doleac the most as a Knick was his consistency. Who wasn't an All-Star like everyone wished the Knicks had downlow, but he was definetely one of those small piece that are required to bring together a great team and add to the chemistry. Plus who can complain about the price he is going for?????

    Eventhough I like Doleac's game, I feel the Knicks should take a shot at getting some of the big names before even thinking about signing him.

    From what I can predict, the Knicks are definetely trading Kurt Thomas this offseason, as my number choice Jamison was already taken, who do you guys think the Knicks should trade Kurt for? Remember that Kurt is a big part of the heart of the Knicks and a big chunk of the Defense (eventhough crappy) that we are playing.

    he is a good shooter but he is not a team player. if you watch him play he does not pass the ball.

    This isnt true Doleac is one of the most unselfish players I remember so many times he passed up a lot of shots to look for open men. The reason he shoots so much is because the knicks always try to free him up because he is one of the best big men shooters in the league and theres no problem shooting when you have the open shot.

    he is not the play we should look at or even spend money on.

    Since the Knicks don't have any money to spend. The only thing we could offer Doleac is the million dollar exception which probably won't be enough since at the current time Doleac's agent stated there are about 11 teams trying to get him.
