It appears as if Joe Johnson will be a New York Knick. He lists NY as his #1 option, will take less $ to come to NYC and be reunited with his former coach... But he is 29 and a playoff goat... Should we get excited about this?
Personally, if we went beyond 4 years.... SUICICDE. Having him for 4 seasons means we get JJ at age 29,30,31,32. Not sure I want a 33-34 yr-old JJ at 12 mil per, you know what I mean?
He may take less money per year, but I think he'll demand that 5th year (could we get a club option).
I could live with JJ, but only if it brings Lebron or Amar'e plus another free agent (Thomas, Salmons, Lee, Parker).
It'll also help if JJ signs with us quickly, for that will help recruit other free agents.
I just didn't expect our rebuilding plan to center on a 29 yr-old playoff bum. Oh well. Time to get excited (sarcasm enter here).
