I really wish we had that pick back, which we surrendered for Cam.
Love from UNC would?ve been perfect at that 22-32 range?.
I think NYK sign and trade either Randle or Mitch to DAL for Brunson.
Now, if Utah gets knocked out early? chance there could be a DM trade?
Brunson/Rose/IQ/McBride sounds like the more realistic route?.
Do they trade for KAT? Beal? Anybody?
Flip Randle to NO or MEM for Zion or Jax
McCullum, Ingram, Randle enough?
I don?t have much faith in Perry and Rose, so I have zero expectation this current regime can do much of anything (swing big deal or snag big time free agent).
So, I anticipate more marginal moves, as they attempt to compete and rebuild at the same time.
The handling of D-Rose is why the Knicks aren?t in the bubble. He was a top 10 MVP candidate last year. With this roster, he was the plan? option 1 for the fourth Q. With him missing 50 games, he was replaced with a backup SG/SF in AB?
Safe to say not having a plan for replacing Rose cost them 6 games? Enough to cost them shot at the bubble.
Signing Kemba and Evan tells me they had no plan for last year and this year free agency. They didn?t envision a free agent being available that could change things? so they signed those 2 hoping to rebuild while competing. Maybe they can be serviceable and minor upgrades, they win 42 games and get ousted early? but competitive.
That blew up in their faces? ow they don?t have cap space?
The front office is to blame. They had no plan? they spent money bc they knew then that next summer, 2023, would be next chance to move. Another regime pinning all there hopes for success in somebody else?s hands?
Didn?t work for most, from LJ to KD?. Only 1 they got, Melo, they paid a steep price to get? and Amare had no other suitors?
So, I don?t expect any signing?. Not anything of note. They?ll try the trade route, but they haven?t proven to be movers and dealers? we shall see? but I see Rose digging a deeper hole before he has plan to build a real roster.
Get ready for that ax court? while they punt another season, waiting on
That?s his plan, I suppose. And? like so many before him, he?ll pin all his hopes on something beyond his control.
Go draft and scout and make strewed trades and signings and make the roster a 45 win team. Then, a star will come?
