Shawne Williams of course!
Jamal Crawford is a ballhog that can't play defense and would deny Melo of taking the last shot of a game.
Humility is a virtue and pride is a vice.
Shawne Williams, Crawford isn't worth giving up TD or Fields. Plus I think Shawne is a better fit and we desperately need a backup SF.
No, just kidding. Shawne Williams easily.
Look at this lineup

Williams - $1.8M - twice his current offer and $3.8M less than Crawford.
I would hate to see us throw $5.6M at Crawford, and realize that Shumpert is a bigger, stronger, more athletic version of him.
If Crawford signed for 1 year, fine. But that would no doubt be at the cost of Williams.
Williams of courseeeee .. i had enough of crawford from the last time he was a knick -__-
Crawford is a good player but we don't need more scoring from this team. Between Mike Bibby and Carmelo we have enough non-defense playing guys
Would love both. Out of the two, Williams. He seems to be satisfied with turning his life around and not being after big money. Give the guy the money, he wants to be on the Knicks.

I love how people say we don't need more scoring.
Do you remember who our coach is? I don't think you comprehend the fact that we have 2 guys who like to dominate the ball, but we also need other shooters they can pass to.
If Fields has developed a more reliable jumper, fine. But we need someone to backup that SG/SF spot and be able to either create a shot, or make a shot.
You saw Crawford is a ballhog....well yeah, he is.... but I can assure you that he will know his role once he gets to the Knicks. I doubt he'll be trying to show up Amare and Melo, I think he's matured to the point where he will want to contribute in the best way to help the team.
I'd prefer Williams only because of how much he would cost. I am not opposed to Crawford in an way, shape, or form. This is a different team now with a different mentality, and Crawford would have no problem adjusting to that.
Guys dont worry, unless Crawford pulls off a huge surprise. We are signing Williams tonight or tomorrow.
give me jamal for sure
