    His best shot wherever he winds up in FA will be as a 3 and D off guard and he needs to stay healthy for the rest of the season. Pretty sure he'll be trade bait for help in the playoff push along with Rivers KK and perhaps even Bullock or Burks.

    Frank only flaw is his high dribble, and being a Frenchy in NY.
    Frank is more than a 3 and D guy.
    Phil drafted Frank's raw skills to put alongside D.Rose in the backcourt as a tandem.
    Frank & Quickley's skills are best suited at the SG position, because the two players have a handle where they could pass the ball off their dribble as a combo guard leading a break.
    The four different FLAWED head-coaches Frank had as a Knicks had no type of offense/defense plan for a Knicks team to win above 40% of a 82 game season.
    They all needed an experience NBA PG with creative offensive skills to win games.
    Even our assistant-coach today needed Jason Kidd PG leadership to have the best coaching season of his career.
    Thibs has never been a good offensive-coach however, Thibs is a great defensive-coach. The reason why Thibs had to get D.Rose & Butler for the Wolves to make the playoffs, and now D.Rose for the Knicks.

    I actually believe Leon & Thibs are afraid to trade Frank to the wrong team because Frank may flourish in the next team rotation as a 3 position player.
    The Brooklyn Nets Harden could use a player like Frank in his rotation now!

    I agree. Frank doesn’t create offense nor does he have good vision. He’s a decent passer. Frank should be a 3-&-D wing. This is where his worth is. Make him a Bruce Bowen clone.

    He had 0 assists playing against SA reserves.

    I totally agree with the handles comment, maybe that is why he rarely go deep or drive to the basket as you said, look at Rose, Elfred and Q, they all go deep and move the offense, he stick to the top of the arc and try to pass. if he doesn't impose a threat he will not be successful guard
