The six-time All-Star is worried that general manager Glen Grunwald won’t add an additional piece in the offseason, a source told the New York Post.
On Tuesday I went over the Knicks’ financial situation for the next three years, so keep that in mind as we go through the offseason decisions that the Knicks will have to make. Here are where the pivotal points are going to be.
Amar’e Stoudemire will go into next season with $45 million left on his contract and no guarantee of a starting job. He also could remain a reserve who plays restricted minutes.
“I think we took a step forward,” Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald told Mike Francesa on Tuesday. “Obviously we didn’t get to the ultimate goal, which we’re trying to reach, but it’s not over. I like the team. I’m not discouraged.”
Boeheim says Anthony has no shot at winning an NBA title with the Knicks. Or at least with these Knicks.
The New York Knicks have signed small forward Quentin Richardson for the remainder of the season. Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald made the announcement on Tuesday, one day after the team released Solomon Jones.
The 40-year-old Thomas was waived on Friday. He was sidelined last month by a stress fracture in his right foot and missed 12 games.
Knicks coach MIke Woodson is leaving it up to Carmelo Anthony to determine when the knee is ready: “If he tells me he wants to play, I’m going to play him.”
Everything else will take care of itself if the Knicks start to guard people. It’s all that matters. It’s everything.
Woodson can’t just expect Melo to elevate his team on the floor. Anthony is a great player and a gifted scorer, but he doesn’t automatically make a team a champion. The coach needs to see — from film, numbers or gut — the writing on the wall.
General manager Glen Grunwald hopes the newly acquired Kenyon Martin can help New York achieve its goal — an NBA championship.
Grunwald seemed confident this current group can compete for a title and fended off Craig’s claims that they are soft.
The Knicks traded shooting guard/small forward Ronnie Brewer to the Oklahoma City Thunder for a second-round pick and cash considerations. New York also agreed in principle to sign 12-year veteran Kenyon Martin to a 10-day contract.
For Knicks fans, there might be some rumors over the next two days — but don’t expect any movement. Sometimes, that’s for the better.
Cheer him, boo him, whatever — The bottom line is that Jeremy Lin has been a non-factor since leaving New York.
