Hey I just had a thought maybe the Knicks will get lucky and be able to get a better than average center for cheap if one is bought out of their deal by a team via amnesty. That way they would get there money and be able to play for a team that is a contender for cheap. I'm thinking of players like Haywood, Kaman or Camby. Of the group Haywood would be the best just because he wouldn't need a payday for 5 years. That would give the Knicks more than enough time to draft/train his replacement.
Honestly this lock out besides sucking from a No basketball standpoint might make the Knicks a lot more powerful as a team if you add in well paid cut players from a Amnesty clause and all of the 2012 free agents.
