    You are correct!!
    The only thing is the Knicks can't make a trade as long as Mills/Perry are in the F.O. Letting them make a trade is another disaster upon those already done.

    Dwyane Wade, one of the best shooting guards in NBA history, offers his take on Knicks rookie shooting guard RJ Barrett:

    "I love a kid that wants to take the challenge. RJ really wanted to be a Knick. You guys know that that's been a tough challenge for a lot of players that had the opportunity to choose to go to New York and they haven't. He took it (head) on and said I want to be a Knick. I give him a lot of respect for that," Wade said during a conference call to announce his role as an analyst on NBA on TNT Tuesday Night telecasts.

    Wade is likely referring to the free agents who have spurned the Knicks over the last 10 years. Since Barrett was drafted by the team -- short of holding out and refusing to sign with the Knicks -- he didn't have much of a choice about where he played as a rookie. But in the weeks leading up to the draft, Barrett made it clear that he wanted to be a Knick.


    The 6-6 guard/forward is averaging 14.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.0 steal per game for New York. He's currently out for at least a week due to an ankle sprain.

    "He's having a good rookie season. In that city, having a coaching change, playing different positions that he's played throughout the year, it's been up and down. But that's what a lot of rookie seasons is," said Wade, whose first appearance on TNT Tuesdays is Jan. 28. "But I really love that kid. I heard his work ethic is amazing. And he's one of the best individuals that you can be around. So I look forward to continuing to follow his career."

    Yeah yeah yeah, but the Heats rookie Nunn seem to be the better all-around player than RJ Barrett.

    Saw and read the same article!!!

    You know when Wes Unseld was a rookie. His team improvement spoke louder than any article written by anyone. Every time he made a chest outlet pass to Kevin, Marin, Gus or Monroe it spoke for him. Simply put his team record says everything. RJ performance should speak very loudly for him, huh? But it not!! Look at the different in the performance of both players. Wes didn't need the ball(offensively) to effect the game and improve his team. RJ must have the ball on offense and his team still doesn't improve.

    The Knicks are still suffering with the addition of RJ!! So how is he GOOD for the Knicks?? Of the two, Knicks and RJ, RJ is the only one supposedly doing well. Question-- with his supposedly success how has it help the team?

    I would hope so, for Nunnís sake.

    Nunn isnít a rookie.... he went undrafted in 2018... and, he played in G-league last year. Heís also 5 years older than RJ.

    Heís also in a more stable environment, playing with better talent and coaching.

    Ian Begley reported some in NYK org view Malik Monk as a potential trade target. Fits in with their buy low on former lottery pick philosophy... Ironic that a team who hasnít signed a first round pick of their own to a second contract in 25 years (Charlie Ward) is giddy sifting thru league trash bin in vein search of reclamation projects.

    Read some blogger write that’s what Perry was known for doing in Sactown, recycling draft bust projects in the hope he could turn one of them into a silk purse. The blogger wasn’t very impressed with Perry. I wrote maybe there’s a reason he’s been an assistant GM his whole career and not one until later on in life, he just may not be that good.

    This Knicks front office has made 3 trades since the 2017-2018 season, one of which was the KP trade. You would have to expect that based on what they did in the past odds are they stand pat, though things may be different this year with a number of team option contracts. I still think that if they can win 4 games before the deadline, they may try to keep this unit together.

    The narrative we are competitive is making me vomit. We are a joke. Real teams take the night off when they play us.... they expend the minimal amount of energy requires to win the game.

    If these teams cared or feared us, and they played hard and brought their A games,
    we would be losing these games by 30 every night.

    Just heard that Detroit maybe interested in trading D.Rose. How about trading Payton and Ellington for Rose and a 2nd pick. This would solve several short term problems that would needed to be address anyway. First is he become a guy who can handle being the 1st option especially in the 4th quarter. Secondly you get MVP leadership and a guy who wanted to stay in N.Y. Thirdly is the to me the most important is that you have someone that Frank can learn from to be must more aggressive.

    Just my opinion.

    Yeah, Yeah, Yeah,

    I said that the current F.O. can't be allowed to make any trades. The above trade is wishful thinking because they aren't smart enough to make that kind of trade anyway.

    Iíd have no problem with this, but my guess is that Pistons will get better offers for Rose who is on a reasonable contract for next season.

    Looking at it very closely and having Rose at the starting PG could be the thing that make us competitive. Not winner or playoff team but competitive(not getting ran out the gym).

    I would still trade RJ for Porter Jr.... Right Now!! While the iron is hot or Hype is high.
