New York Knicks
Asik would be a strong fit in the ‘Bockers’ frontcourt, as power forwards Amar’e Stoudemire and Kenyon Martin are out for an unknown period of time.
Carmelo Anthony and likely Metta World Peace will be the power forwards with guards playing the other three positions on the court. For a team that thrives in the pick-and-roll while spreading the floor, that’s a good thing.
“I’ve let games go like that. In Atlanta, I let a couple of games go where I didn’t call a timeout because they weren’t set. We threw it in and Joe Johnson was able to dribble down and hit a winning shot.”
The New York Knicks have recalled 26-year-old guard Chris Smith from Erie of the NBA Development League after yet another injury to their backcourt.

Here’s the issue: Lowry is a free agent after this season. If the Knicks want to re-sign him long-term it will probably cost them around eight million dollars a season, give or take. That type of contract will make it nearly impossible for the Knicks to bring in another max player in the 2015 offseason if Carmelo Anthony signs a max extension this summer.
James Dolan, angry with details being leaked, put the kibosh on a trade proposal Thursday that could have landed Toronto point guard Kyle Lowry, according to the Daily News.
In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last six weeks, the Knicks have major problems. And every day those problems seem to multiply.
