    I'm weary he seems to be a contract year type of performer (regular season wise).

    Can always get a meeting with him and if he wants to come you clear the cap.
    Yup, same thing I'm thinking as well. This front office is so good. We are very spoiled right now.

    Rumors are that the Knicks will make a very serious run at Masai in the off season. More aggresive than they were two years ago.

    Berman is the latest to report that the Knicks plan to make a run at Raptors executive Masai Ujiri after the season ends. Owner James Dolan considered trying to lure Ujiri two years ago before promoting Mills to president, Berman states, but decided the price in draft compensation would be too steep. Sources tell Howard Beck of Bleacher Report that Ujiri is “intrigued” at the challenge of fixing the Knicks, but people close to him are warning against it. Ujiri turned down a lucrative extension offer last summer, according to Beck, and has an out clause in his contract that allows him to leave the Raptors under certain circumstances.

    The Knicks are “obsessed” and “enamored” with Raptors executive Masai Ujiri as the next man to run the franchise, sources tell Ian Begley of SNY.tv. A front office shakeup is expected in the wake of yesterday’s firing of head coach David Fizdale, especially considering the poor track record of team president Steve Mills.

    Hopefully he just uses them as leverage to get a fat raise.

    Masai is a smart man. He realizes along with everyone else that the Knicks organization has been completely disfuntional for many years.

    It would likely be career suicide for him to go there. Remember when Phil Jackson was viewed as a coach that could do no wrong? Masai is view in a similar light for what he has done here. If he goes to the revolving door that is the Knicks all the good he has done for himself and his career can be undone in the span of a couple years.

    Until Dolan is gone the Knicks will always be a circus. I'm not phased one bit by them

    Raptors could always go after Kevin Love

    Doesn’t fit our identity better than Gasol, Ibaka, Siakam or Boucher.

    If it means ridding ourselves of Gasol I'd think about it

    I think we’d miss the defense Gasol brings. Plus you’d have to give up something. They’re not just gonna take Gasol.

    Meh I think Ibaka at the 5 is a better rim protector. We get sold on GasolS defence because he literally does nothing else out there. Sure he can pass and hit the odd 3 here and there but he cant rebound and has 0 touch around the rim.

    I want Ibaka at the 5 with Boucher back in the rotation. But you're right I wouldn't part with any assetts for Love who's a liability and probably won't move the needle any ways

    Take age and salary out of it, I havemore confidence with Gasol out there than Ibaka to be honest. He lacks the athleticism, but is just smarter on both ends of the floor. Neither dictates anything, but Gasol compliments anything better than Ibaka IMO.

    I disagree personally.

    The reason I’m sold on Gasol is because even with his pedestrian stat lines, he always seems to have a better game than the opposing 5. Jonas used to do the same thing, but he would do it by putting up more rebounds and points than the opposition. Gasol does it in a way that benefits the team as a whole a little better.

    Gasol is also very vocal out there on defence.
    Good communicator. He’s durable and a great leader.

    Yup.

    He speaks calmly to refs during times of distress. He takes his teammates aside to show them eyes of the game they are missing. He is never searching for his own... Hard to find a better veteran center to lead a young core. Just needs to be in the right price range.
