What are the Knicks FO gonna do in offseason???


We picked no player out of the 2023 Draft.
We gave away a young future PF Obi Toppin.
We cut a 34 yr old player/coach Derrick Rose.
We resign the 6.3 Josh Hart to play the forward position.
We signed a 6.3 FA Donte DiVincenzo on July 1st.
We Knicks fans have been getting teased weekly by the media of the Knicks FO desperate to trade for a NBA star player this offseason.
Stars like .. Donovan Mitchell? Paul George? Lavine? Embiid? Dame Lillard?
And the Knicks are looking to trade players Evan Fournier, and our two dynamic young guards Quentin Grimes and Immanuel Quickley for a star player.

The Knicks 2023-24 season are ???


The New York Knicks have made some strategic moves in this off-season to boost their capacity to sign influential players. The recruitment of Donte DiVincenzo on a four-year, $47 million deal became possible when Josh Hart accepted his $13 million player option and consented to a new deal starting after the 2023–24 season.
Hart agreed to take a lower salary for the upcoming season, with the understanding that he would receive his extension. The expected deal is approximately four years, $75 million (according to Stefan Bondy), paying him an estimated $18.75 million per season—a decent payout for a player who brings significant energy to the Knicks’ roster.

Last season, Duane Washington Jr. played 31 games for the Phoenix Suns and (after being waived) signed a two-way deal with the New York Knicks in February.
On July 24, the Knicks announced that they had waived Washington Jr., but on July 30, they have now re-signed the former Ohio State star (h/t HoopsRumors).
Via KnicksPR on July 30: "The New York Knicks announced today that the team has signed guard Duane Washington Jr. to a contract. Terms of the deal were not disclosed."

The past three significant moves made by the Knicks have one common denominator:
Coach Tom Thibodeau’s fingerprints are all over them.
The players brought in had been described prior to their arrival as favorites of Thibodeau’s, and the players sent out are ones he was not fond of.
Love or hate him — and based on the vocal minority on social media, Knicks fans seem split on the coach despite his mostly successful three-year tenure — it is clear that the roster has been constructed to Thibodeau’s specifications.
Kiya, you these guys are incompetent. There are no real BB people in this organization. What Thib has become is a disgrace for a coach.
They the F.O. is more about entertainment than competition. Look at the number of players they hindered the growth process.
Just look at those in this forum who are noticeably absent from all conversation. They are of like minds with the F.O. but have said nothing to defend their incompetence.

So this is the current state!!


Dark .. I have to agree with you .. Today's NBA PF are yesterday SF and big guards.

So far the Knicks FO offseason moves .. had nothing to do with fixing or preparing last season many weak areas, or the weakness in our court performance.
Maybe because its been over a decade since the Knicks made it to the 2nd round of the playoffs, where the Miami Heats exposed all the Knicks weak areas in a 2-4 series loss.
What were some of last season weakness as a team?
1) The Knicks weak areas on offense was to much dribble dribble one on one offense, having no ball-movement, no player movement, and our new PG Brunson average 36 or more minutes to only have 5 or 6 assists at end of game.
2) The Knicks weak areas on defense were switches, lazy effort, and a defensive-zone that only gets stops when MitchRob or Hartenstein defends the ball.

I'm scared this offseason bout the Cleveland Cavs trading Donovan Mitchell contract.
And Leon Rose high sensation on getting a super-star contract to show off in MSG.
Donovan Mitchell scoring talent in one season really messed-up the young Cavs growing chemistry.
The Knicks young-core guards Quickley, Grimes, McBride performance last season were dynamic, showed no weakness on offense/defense the court.
Our guards and centers were the backbone of the Knicks grinding out a 5th seed team.

The Knicks has been doing a lot of signing contracts to the SL and GL players for training camp and preseason games.

Question to you ..
Will Lillard and Miami heats strong arm Portland Into a trade before the season ???
Kiya, I don’t think Portland is in any hurry to make this trade until it becomes profitable for them. They are going to sit on Lillard and make him sweat.
Is Lillard a good fit for the Heat???? I don’t think so.
Is the chemistry that exists on the Heat in danger if they get Lillard??? Again I think so.


Dark, you maybe right bout Portland waiting till the season start to decide on trading their super star guard Dame Lillard. Especially after all the season tickets are sold. To many Portland fans remember when rookie Dame put the lottery Blazer team on his shoulders to make the playoffs.

As for Dame joining the Miami Heats rotation ....
Dame (7 assist) & Butler (6 assist) & Coach Erik Spoelstra's offense/defense chemistry having BAM to dominate the paint would make the Miami Heats a top 1, 2, or 3 Seed team in the East.

Our Knicks couldn't do nothing against the 14 season PG Lowry in the Heats playoff series.
The Knicks were out coach, and out performed on every area of the court.
