Unless we trade Lin, Melo or Chandler, we won't be getting any picks out of anyone for a while.
We might be able to pull a miracle trade of Stoudemire, for example, but if we got a pick of any significance out of that I'd be surprised. If he were ever traded, it'd only ever be for a player(s) whose contracts are also considered a blemish on their team's roster.
That, of course, will all be determined by how he plays this year. Not holding out a lot of hope.
Or the other miracle of a dime in the rough of our players overseas in a couple of years coming to the Knicks and play well. Ginolbili style.
The Knicks need players to improve and play to their highest abilities. To many ifs and needs.
1. Stat needs to read the ball better to rebound and improve his defensive awareness drastically. Maybe Hakeem could of helped his game.
2. Melo needs to learn to move the ball, become a leader, and learn how to move without the ball.
3. Lin needs a lot of improvement. Hopefully Kidd will get signed and help him.
4. Novak needs to come back.
5. Backup center is a need. Camby.
6. SG is in question. J.R. Smith needs to take less money, if not sign someone younger for the same cost. O.J Mayo.
7. Team Chemistry needs a ton of improvement.
The Knicks are not a championship team, even if all this happens it still might not be enough. One more thing to bring the Knicks over the hump, Coach Woodson has to find a way to make all these players work.
