NY in the mix for Josh Howard
Marc Spears twitter:
Jazz free agent forward Josh Howard is expected to make a decision soon, source tell Y! Sports. Utah, Ind GS, BK and NY in mix.
Do the Knicks need anymore players?
C Chandler, Camby
PF Stoudemire, Thomas
SF Anthony, Novak, Howard
SG Shumpert, JR, Brewer
PG Felton, Kidd, Prigioni
You'll have ELEVEN guys on the team expecting at least 20 minutes, two expecting like 35 minutes and THIRTEEN guys on the team expecting to play good minutes. The Knicks do not need anymore players, it's just going to create major locker room problems and unhappy problems complaining about minutes.
To put that in perspective, you'll struggle to get 8 guys playing 20 minutes. You have 8 now accustomed to playing at least 30 minutes. And having such a large rotation is dumb, because you want Amare and Melo being featured at all times. Melo and Amare getting 35 and Tyson 33, leaves 137 minutes for the remaining 10 guys, an average of 13.7 minutes. Even if you take Thomas and Prigioni out, it's 17.1 minutes. Kidd, Camby, JR, Felton and Shump will NOT be happy playing 17.1 minutes.
