Schmeelk: Chandler’s Return Doesn’t Solve Knicks’ Biggest Problem

Schmeelk: Kyle Lowry Is A Good Fit For Knicks — But At What Cost?

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.
