Maybe, though maybe Copeland could fit the bill. I hope he can. PG too since who knows how much longer Kidd and Prigioni will be playing.

nah Copeland wont be good enough to eventually replace STAT or even back him up

Actually I'm hoping we let Prigs walk after the season and sign Bo McCalebb

I hope that whoever the Knicks draft becomes a superstar.If the Golden-State Warriors could select Gilbert Arenas with the 30th pick in the draft anything is possible.

He reminds me of Barkley, great thing about Bennett is he has a lot of skills and substance over his athleticism, which isn't elite, but Bennett can just beat his guy with pure skills.

NYk_Reloaded718, I would love for the Knicks to trade Amar'e for some extra draft picks.

Yea, crazy, I dont' think he was even a top 10 prep last year.

We should probably draft a guard, but you always take the best player available.

This is true.


What position do you guys feel like we're in most desperate need of youth and talent?

Guard. A guy to go with Iman going forward, who knows if JR will reup here. Kidd and Felton have limited shelf life, need a lead guard.

But have to go with the premise, you go with the best available player.

Trey Burke looks like the guy then.

Unless theres other PG prospects in the draft.

Here's an interesting thought, we got Baron Davis working. Bring Josiah Turner to the big Apple, have him live with Davis, come to practice, watch games, teach him what it takes to be a pro. He's from Northern California and there were some comparisons to Kidd, but thinking more Kevin Johnson. Talented 6-3 point guard, showed up in Arizona, quit, declared for the draft, went undrafted, made various pro stops, lacks discipline and thinks he's bigger than the team.

I would think since he declared last year and was a pro briefly, he's a free agent.

I know its early but hey why not. I see the knicks finding a undervalued FA to bolster the PG spot if Prig retires. Besides that all the knicks need is a SF to spell Melo and play besides him as well when Melo or Amare play the 4.

The kid could take Brewers spot (defense on Wings) and he shoots the 3 off of screens really well. Lastly it seems he use to be being roleplayer as well. Also they think he'll be there late which is great cause.

idk i just put draft in search and this came up as the newest.... I'm trying to not get into this whole thread clean up issue (cause I see its a sensitive issue) but I'm not going to double and triple check before I bump an old thread either. I thought i was being cool by just not creating new threads...

I wouldnt mind if Knicks try to trade Amare for a 1st.

We have Shumpert but Ben McLemore really impresses me.

There was an article recently about how Bobcats Scouts are telling brass to trade the pick because the draft is pretty empty this year. Give them Amare, next year's pick for their pick and commisserate salaries to make the deal work.

Bobcats could certainly use Amare. Plus Jordan has an affinity with big man busts so sounds good!

I am currently pimping out Michael Carter-Williams. Imagine him having 2 years to learn from Jason Kidd and potentially rotate with JR Smith, Raymond Felton and Iman Shumpert
