The thinking is by the 2nd season we will have his early bird rights, subsequently enabling us to give him a proper long term contract at MLE level money.

I guess his bad playoff run worked too our favor. He'll be back stronger. Seems to work hard and have a good relationship with Woodson. Plays good D. Knicks got a steal in this deal

J.R. Smith: "I have decided to re-sign with the Knicks. I just felt that despite my other options, NY is best situation for me. Coach Woodson showed a lot of faith and trust in me last season. as did Mr. Dolan. My teammates are great to play with and the NY fans are the best. I can't wait to get started.''

Jr Swish, glad to be back!

JR tweeting he wants to change his jersey number!

First it was #23 but that is Marcus Camby's number
Then it was #2 probably going to Jason Kidd
Now its #4 but since we have roster space we could go after K-Mart, so baffling to what number he might choose next... Stayed tuned to this saga!

Great news...I was getting nervous about someone swooping in and taking J,R

I am just happy that not everyone wants to join the Heat and some want the bigger challenge in NY

J.R is such a steal, especially with Landry Fields, who isn't half the player J.R is, getting 6 mil a year...LOL

Now we should look to match Lin's offer sheet
Sign Jeffries to vet min
Sign Prigioni to vet min or biannual exception
Use Dan Gadzuric in a sign and trade for a SG

I know we all love Jeffries but he has just come off knee surgery, and if we could get K Mart for the Bi-Annual, should be do it?

Gadzuric to Atlanta for Stevenson

Sign Drew Gordon as our back up 4-man

Jeffries as our 3rd Center/Power Forward

Sign AJ Price as our 3rd PG

PG- Lin/Kidd/Price
SG- Stevenson/Smith- Shumpert (IR)
SF- Anthony/Novak/White
PF- Stoudemire/Gordon
C- Chandler/Camby/Jeffries

maybe keep Chris Copeland as IR guy, insurance player

K Mart is still a possibility if we do a sign and trade with Dan Gadzuric lol

Iverson can be the 3rd PG to warm the seats....Nene can watch the games from the crowd when we are in the playoffs

realistically if we sign kmart instead of jefferies who would score consistanly on the second unit would it just be jr smith join 1-20 the entire night

He won't ever come back to the league though, its obvious Stern is black balling him. Every owner in the league Quietly promised to never let him on any of their teams again. Why you think he hasn't even been on one D-League team.

I would also have tears of joy...just imagine the hype in NY.....

-First bball team in brooklyn
-D Will resigning
-Johnson getting traded
-Dwight probably being traded to Nets

-Lin probably resigning so more of Linsanity all year
-Kidd comes to stick it to Nets fans
-Camby has a home coming
.................................................. ..........

...........

-AI is a knick!

The many storylines all capped off with AI to the Knicks...that would be fantastic hahahah

Boooooo. Should have gotten someone consistent on and off the court. Hopefully Kidd can tame this guy. He only gets hot when it doesn't matter...

Good news. All the pieces are falling together nicely. If we can now do a S&T of Gadzuric for KMart & sign Mo Evans to the vet min I will be doing cartwheels over this offseason. :peace:

For all of you that LOVE JR is now clear after all of these crazy contracts thats you have seen that we knicks fans are a bit nuts...

JR is signing for 2.8 million.....not a single team offered him anywhere near the deal Novak got or anyone else.......THERE IS A REASON FOR THAT....!!!!!

with that said with Kidd and Camby in the locker room along with Chandler I do think JR will be put in place....just hope woodson does not use him like a fool again.

we still need a SG ...melo and jr do not need to be on the court together

How do you know what teams offered him, were you in the room when his agent were working on the deal.

Some fans would rather be right in there own mind then express happiness when our team clearly got the better end of a deal.

Lets keep it moving with good pickups:gony:

I would have very much liked to have Mayo on board, too. I think an added year of maturity under the guidance of Woody, I believe that JR Smith can become something more than Mayo. Circumstantial and resting on hope, but if he can be reined in, JR Smith can (hopefully will) become what he's always been capable of becoming, and I think that's something better than what Mayo can become.

If not better, then on par. They're both underachieving, IMO.

Yeah it makes me a bit worried that we have to potentially rely on JR Smith for half the season. But he has shown strides.

I hope we will start Kidd at the 2 and have J.R. come off the bench if this is in fact our last guard signing.

Wow, J.R. Smith.

My roster prediction is almost exact. All that's left is Lin.

Great, I'm glad we kept him. We are going to need skilled players with some heart and durability at the guard positions. A very smart move in resigning JR.

Solid pick-up for a very good price.

I'm not his biggest fan but you can't go wrong with JR SWAGBALLS at 2.8m$.

Needed JR. Got him at a bargain price.

LIN, KIDD, SMITH, SHUMP is much better than what we've had... But still, there are questions. Def. could use Randy Foye. Dare to dream.

Knuckle Heads they won't give $$$$ too...but this deal make sense but again No one in 8 yrs let Smith start...They still need a defensive guard for the perimeter...Funny Lin 29 million..Novak n Fields over 10 million..and JR Smith deal is lowest but he most talented LOL...
