The clippers didnt want to pay him 5.8 million so they renounced his rights to shed salary making him an unrestricted free agent... Seeing how we're still going to be a mediocre team for the next two years I say we sign him for over 6 million for the next two years.

Too Risky
He would have to complete a physical and remember th PG must Run and Shoot.
I think Shaun's days are over

We can't sign anyone else. We used our entire MLE on Duhon.

We can use our LLE

We have enough guards on the team. If we keep Steph we have four guards in the rotation. If we get rid of Steph we still ahve three guards. I think Phoenix only played three guards (Bell, Barbosa, Nash). So Knicks have enough guards either way.

Yeah it looked absolutely horrendous. I'm surprised he can even walk. He might be a good back up who knows? It's sad that the Clippers just threw him to the curb.

If he is healthy I would consider taking a gamble on him on the cheap. Bring him in. Give him a work out. See what he has left. I always thought he had great physical talents but his production was not matching his hype just yet as a young player. Maybe a sign and trade for Mardy or even Balk if his knee is really healthy.

That's just the luxury tax. We can get someone with the LLE or vet's min.
But damn, the league is so greedy yikes ! :mad:

The luxury tax actually helps out the small market teams, so some of the big teams actually subsidize the small team kind of like revenue sharing. Plus the league gets their share also.

This year? Very doubtful. GS lost Davis and it looks like Monta will sign there for 10-11 mill per year. I wish we could get him though. :)

All I really care about is dumping Zach's large contract and possibly Jared and Jerome at the same time as well

I want Zachs Money to be used on Lee and Nate

I'd be willing to take Shaun Livingston for the LLE as long as he passes the physical and Stephon Marbury is gone. Shaun Livingston still has to prove himself and is very hungry to come back and work up to his potential. I agree he is a risk but if we signed him for no more than two years for the LLE money, I wouldn't think that'd be such a bad thing to do.

Duhon + Shaun
Jamal + Nate
Quentin + Wilson + Renaldo
Lee + Danilo
Eddy + Zach + Jared

Not Bad

Best offer we can give him over 2 years is about 3.8 million total.

shouldn't we be tired of signing broken down players?:mad:

If we brought him in and he seems healthy what about a sign (2 years at 2 mill each) and trade for Balk and Mardy?

Balk is behind Danilo, Chandler, Jeffries and Qrich so he may not play at all. Mardy might be cut anyway.

Balkman was drafted because lacked Defense and hustle. Now we have a bit of that in Wilson,Lee,Nate,etc So Balkman isn't really needed any more.

I also would take a shot at Livingston if he passes a physical. I wouldn't however pay a lot for him. Also, he's not a long range shooter. Knicks said they want more guards?

What do you guys think about a sign & trade, Livingston and Deandre Jordan for Malik's expiring, Balkman and JJ.. Clips need front court help in a hurry..

Lee + Danilo
Eddy + Zach + Jared

Not Bad

Lee is a PF but Danilo is a SF. So I can see

Duhon & Shaun
Jamal & Nate
Wilson & Danilo (Trade Quentin)
Lee & unknown (Trade Zach)
Eddy & Jared

Hope we can get a good PF to backup Lee and a good center to backup Eddy by trading Zach, Quentin, Balkman and probably Jared - Or maybe some of the summer guys might pan out.
