The Knicks’ offseason has been nearly as crazy as their season. But with the final pieces in place, it’s finally time to take a look at their roster and figure out exactly how good they are.
There’s plenty of blame to go around when figuring out who to point the finger at for the loss of Jeremy Lin. It should be no surprise that it all starts at the top.
With the signings of Jason Kidd, Marcus Camby, and Raymond Felton, the Knicks have opted for older, more experienced talent rather than matching Jeremy Lin’s contract offer from Houston.
Ever hear of the stretch provision? It might just save Jeremy Lin’s career in New York.
Jason Kidd said he was comfortable backing up Jeremy Lin – at the start of games. He still wants to be on the court at the end and hinted he and Lin could share the floor then.
Woodson said Lin will be staying put, in New York and as the Knicks’ starting point guard.
Free agents in the NBA could finally sign contracts starting at 12:01 a.m. EDT Wednesday, and the Brooklyn Nets wasted no time getting their All-Star point guard to put pen to paper — well, iPad actually.
In many ways, the Knicks are in a situation reminiscent of the Isiah Thomas days. They aren’t very young, are capped out and don’t own many of their own draft picks. There’s one big difference, however.
With Marcus Camby returning to Madison Square Garden, the present-day New York Knicks are resembling their defensive-strong teams of the late 1990s. Who is to say that New York can’t be the third-best team in the East?
Clearly on the downside of his career at age 38, Camby still provides a lot of value for the Knicks off the bench. He averaged nine rebounds in only 23 minutes, good enough for one of the best rates in the NBA.
New York was expected to re-sign the free agent this offseason. When asked by a fan on Monday night to consider Los Angeles, Smith tweeted, “Sorry but im a #KNICK!”
The Rockets would get guard Toney Douglas, forward Josh Harrellson, center Jerome Jordan, second-round picks in 2014 and 2015, along with cash to pay Douglas’ salary, according to the report.
Now that the Knicks have lost out on their top free agent, they will have to rely largely on internal improvement and progress to make that next step in becoming a championship-contending team.
