    Default ESPN Insider August, 2nd

    found chad ford's espn insider this on another board

    New York Knicks
    Cash remaining: Mid-level exception; $1.6 million exception
    Players added: None
    Players lost: None
    Skinny: Isiah Thomas has been in hot pursuit of every free agent on the planet
    this summer -- but so far he's come up empty. By now you know about the
    high-profile attempts to work out a sign-and-trade with the Warriors for Erick
    Dampier, the Bulls for Jamal Crawford and even the Lakers for Kobe Bryant. All
    three deals look dead at the moment.

    The Warriors are telling everyone that they aren't inclined to take on more
    salary just to get Dampier more money on the open market. Bulls GM John Paxson
    is insisting that he won't do a deal with the Knicks unless Thomas takes back
    Jerome Williams and Eddie Robinson. Paxson wants only expiring contracts and
    Shandon Anderson back in return. The team has also tried hard to pry away
    Antoine Walker from the Mavericks to no avail.

    On the likely chance that all of Isiah's pursuits fall through . . . what's
    left, Knicks fans? The Knicks still have their mid-level, though it appears
    they're on the verge of giving three million of it to Vin Baker. It doesn't
    appear there are any unrestricted free agents out there are worth Isiah's time
    with the extra $1.9 million he'd have left. The team does have the valuable
    expiring contracts of Dikembe Mutombo, Othella Harrington, Frank Williams and
    Cezary Trybanski to work with, which gives Thomas one shot, if he combined all
    four players, of taking on a contract worth roughly $10.3 million. The Mavs are
    also pushing Jerry Stackhouse their way if the Knicks would give up Kurt Thomas
    in return.

    I have faith in us even if we get no new players. We still have alot of potential.

    Yea JJ. I also heard Dallas would want Thomas. A trade we could never do. The Knicks are not in a position to trade a big for a small(unless it's Mutombo). Stackhouse when healthy would also be good insurance in case of Houston's knee trouble. I would rather have Crawford though.....
