I honestly don't see him making any sort of impact on the Knicks. He'll just basically be a veteran off the bench.

Best move they could make considering the circumstances....they sure love signing the ex-Nugget players :laugh2:

Carmelo Anthony
JR Smith
Kenyon Martin

If they kept Chauncey Billups they'd be the 2009 Nuggets minus Nene, replaced with Chandler.

Good move. They need all the help they can get right now. And they also need to find some perimeter defenders.

I doubt anyone would give white a 2 year guaranteed deal. Most vet min deals are 2 years with either a player option in the 2nd year or a team option. I am going to go ahead and assume its not 2 guaranteed years. If it is then the knicks GM really screwed up on that one.

Well it sounded like your problem was that it was a tweet, rather than an article. You didn't say anything about the person behind it being the issue, and given Spears is as solid as anyone not named Woj or Amick I just assumed that wasn't the problem.

Kenyon Martin was a Super-Star / All-Star / and Team-Leader with consecutive visits to the FINALS .. until he became teammates with Carmelo Anthony and couldnt get pass the first round of the playoff.
sound familiar (Billups & Iverson)

Putting Kidd back with Marion won Dallas a Championship.
Putting Kidd back with Kenyon Martin is an ideal leadership for a winning team.

No your PG likes to blame a messed up jumpshot and bad ankles on a coach. I'll tell you one thing. My PG might be fat and underperforming but your's is just the same and letting guys like Tayshawn Taylor and CJ WATSON! take over his spot and play better. And I actually have to apologize to Bogans, he's actually turned up, as for DWill he prbly still thinks he's on CP3's level.

The man is hurt and still putting up 16 and nearly 8 with another guy who demands the ball like Joe and a post up player like Lopez. He said the system didnt fit him and its true,also since Avery has been let go Nets have played their best ball of the season. You are lucky Avery lasted longer than he did cause Nets would have had the Atlantic right now. Why would you talk about someone like Bogans he is making the least amount on the team? and has been on some top teams like Spurs and Bulls in last few seasons.
