Carmelo Anthony has been playing SF alongside Andrea Bargnani and Tyson Chandler during Knicks practices.
Mike Woodson has yet to decide on a starting lineup, but with the offseason pick up of Bargnani, Anthony now has options within the Knicks' offense. "Playing the 3, 4, itís all the same. Iím cool with it," he said. "Itís up to Coach Woodson. Itís early right now to pick a starting lineup. By the end of the week, weíll start figuring things out." Metta World Peace has been playing with the second team, and Mike Woodson said a frontcourt of Chandler-Bargnani-Anthony is a distinct possibility.
Tyson Chandler said that he worked on his jumper all offseason.
"I think it can be deadly," Chandler said. "If you can knock down that mid-range jump shot, it exploits a lot of bigs, makes them come away from the basket where theyíre not comfortable." Out of his 452 shots in the regular season and playoffs last year, only 44 of them were jumpers. Chandler has never really developed much of a shot, so it would be a surprise to see him adjust his game at age 31.
Coach Mike Woodson said that Iman Shumpert (shoulder) is not a lock to start at shooting guard.
Woodson said that J.R. Smith (knee) could be in the mix, but these types of statements are common at this time of year. Either way, we wouldn't expect the starter/bench designation to swing minutes too heavily for either guy. Shumpert will be evaluated for his shoulder on Thursday night, and Woodson would not rule him out to practice on Friday.
J.R. Smith could start at shooting guard this season, according to coach Mike Woodson.
Woodson said the reigning Sixth Man of the Year is "in the mix" to start. It does seem unlikely since Smith was great in his role off the bench last year and Iman Shumpert can provide some perimeter defense for the first unit. J.R. Swish should have a similar role, but his five-game suspension and knee surgery cast some doubt he'll be able to have a repeat performance.
