    Knicks and Reggie Bullock reportedly have mutual interest. Our free agency is quickly turning mundane.

    Sounds like Kemba believe his resigning salary should be the same as 3 championship rings FA Klay Thompson resign salary in GS SMH

    Klay Thompson is the number #1 FA I wanted for the Knicks to go after first in the off-season, Durant was a 2nd option, and Kyrie I did not want on either NY teams. Klay as a Knick would be a huge help in developing and choosing the right young-core guards to call Keepers.

    I'd argue we need at least 2 FA stars to have enough of a talent base to contend and to make this place attractive enough without losing too many assets. Look at how deep the championship teams are, and look at where our Knicks are.
    We are still a few years away AND we need to get lucky in the 2019 off-season FA market.

    Signing Kemba to a big contract, losing Horford & Rozier to FA, it sounds like the Boston Celtricks are making 3 step backwards LMAO

    And Knicks reportedly also have interest in George Hill, Wayne Ellington and Robyn Lopez.

    Anyway... sounds like KD wants Knicks, but with Kyrie going to Brooklyn (supposedly), then maybe KD trying to bring Kawhi with him...

    Would KD come here alone?

    Knicks need to act swiftly... donít loose out on Rozier and Randle chasing pipe dreams...

    I think Rozier is a better fit for us, given age and contract commitment.

    Sad when Rozier and Randle are your fallback options, after all the hype and dreams....

    Still have 24 hrs to dream of KD/KL tho. Enjoy.
    Rozier is not a better fit no matter how much NY Ink it draws, knock it off Maf

    If Kyrie and even to a worse degree Harrison Barnes can bank so can Kemba simply off the strength of a little man carrying the burden of a whole franchise on his back for yrs

    Welcome back B. These are just the kind of incisive comments that I gave you props for in the Summer League thread. We were debating the choice of DLo for the max or Rozier for a short term deal @ 15-20M/yr. I prefer Rozier thinking he can grow into the role of a starting PG with playing time like he did in the 2018 playoffs. He’s got a lot pit bull in him which I like also.

    Last I checked, Rozier helped lead BOS to ECF, no? What has Kemba done in playoffs?

    Kemba for 4/140 vs Rozier for 2/24?

    I think Rozier is a better defender

    Kemba is gonna be 29 and has reached playoffs twice in his career...

    Rozier will be entering age 25 year... has proven he can lead a team to conf Finals... so, yeah, from a NYK perspective... I think he makes more sense.

    Rozier wants to start but isnít ball dominant... thatís one reason why. Kemba would make DSJ worthless...

    I believe Rozier a better fit with DSJ.

    It would be a different story if Kemba were coming with a healthy KD or with KL.

    But, with an injured KD... give me a 25 yr-old TR plus 20 mil to play with per season over maxing out Kemba.

    I got no problem with Kemba getting paid... but I wouldnít want Walker on this NYK team at 29 making 35 mil a year. Wouldnít help our future much.

    Reports say that Miami could possibly snipe Houston in arranging a sign and trade for Jimmy Butler. Can never count out Miami making an impact in free agency.

    Marc Stein

    @TheSteinLine
    The Orlando Magic are preparing a four-year offer believed to be in excess of $90 million to their All-Star center Nikola Vucevic in hopes of completing a deal shortly after Sunday's opening bell in free agency, league sources say

    I remember pulling out my phone in the late evening two years ago and seeing that weíd signed THJ to a huge contract. Man, I donít want that feeling again. I hope if we give some middling guys some big deals, we really do keep them to 1 or 2 year deals.

    Remember 2 years ago how we were going to build a team around KP, WHG, THJ, and Ntilikina? That didnít work out, huh?

    Now letís try it again with RJ, MRob, DSJ, and Knox. Man, our front office is going to have a real hard time making a sales pitch to stars.

    Clippers reportedly looking to try to pair Kawhi with Jimmy Butler. Backs up a recent report that Clippers have cooled on pursuing Durant because they donít want a guy who canít help them this coming season.

    According to Kleiman, Durant has no idea what he is doing. Sounds to me like his choices are stay in GS with his good buddy Draymond, go to the NBAís littlest stage in Brooklyn with Kyrie, or come watch a lottery team play at MSG. Yikes.

    Look at those choices, if KD isn't insane he takes the Warriors dough and forgets about the Knicks and Nets.

    Naaaaahhhhh not when Knick fans have been laughing at Ainge for keeping Rozier out of deals. I remember vividly the laughing and cosigning the mockery because he wouldn't include Rozier in an Ibaka deal. That was 2yrs ago and nothing has changed with Rozier's game. Now it's time to pay him Reggie Jackson money or worse. A kid who supposedly was butthurt because Kyrie and Hayward got vet love treatment....

    EWWWWWWW NO THANKSTANK YOU!!!!

    Kemba solves out PG problem we've had for yrs and truth be told Rozier really isn't a "Point Guard" but I got a better analogy when looking at Kemba's worth and relevance

    When Masai got to Toronto his first significant move was trading for Lowry who was due a deal 2yrs later and re-upped him again at crazy dollars the yr prior to acquiring Kawhi through trade. While he was 3yrs younger than Kemba sometimes those moves are the ones people forget about that should be made. We will regret not getting Kemba a player we attempted to trade for twice but like Kyle got too bent out of shape giving up assets while weakening them....

    Sound Familiar oh let me remind you...?

    Like when we could've traded for Kyle but we thought Shumpert the original Knits was too much to give up in a trade....LAUGHABLE! Where did Kyle lead any team prior to getting traded to Toronto? What is Kyle now?
