    We can just agree to disagree. RJ is absolutely a legit starter. If Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson are legit starters, then so is Aaron Nesmith. And Melo is starting for a Portland team that is contending for a playoff spot in the West.

    I'm not a fan of this veteran roster. It reminds me a lot of the short spurt with Melo where the Knicks were easily knocked out of the playoffs in the First Round, once in the second round after Pacers took a commanding 3-1 lead.

    Heed the WARNING of Clyde Frazier: Seems like every 2 years, we tear up the foundation of the team for a quick fix. As a consequence, we're constantly rebuilding.

    The Blazers finished a commanding 53-26 record in 2018-19 season because they had a THREE guard set. Added Enes Kanter who knows how to pass. While they didn't make it to the NBA Finals, they were plenty exciting to watch.

    During 2019-20 season the Blazers lost Kanter to Boston. Added some iso guys and Melo. They are 29-37, basically 8 games under .500. Iso doesn't work. The team always beats the individual.

    The Knicks NEED to suck for 2 more seasons because they STILL don't know who is the fondation. Is it RJ? Maybe. Is it who the Knicks draft in 2020? Maybe. Is it Mitchell Robinson? Maybe.

    And that's why Mills AND Perry's plan to jettison KP, salary baggage in hopes of luring Durant and Irving was SO STUPID. They shaped that roster for those two superstars and got stiffed.

    Here’s an alt plan that some may like better...

    If we fall to 7-10 in this draft, and “reach” for Nesmith there, then trade 27, 38 & DSJ to move up to around 18 or so, nab Poku...

    Sign FVV, Gallo...

    FVV-RJ-Nesmith-Gallo-Mitch
    Frank-Dot-Knox-Randle-Poku
    Harper-Sanon-Iggy-Wooten-Taj

    Issue is can we lure FVV and Gallo... if we could I actually like this team a lot.

    If this team could stay healthy I think they could win some games

    I think if we “reach” for someone, it’s going to be Lewis.

    I also don’t see the FO benching Randle and putting in a rookie, regardless of Rose having nothing to do with signing him

    And FVV is not coming here without a ridiculous contract

    Tyler Herro wasn’t a starter much. Duncan Robinson started as a floor spacer. Both had seasons comparable to RJ despite shooting less. Both are excellent from 3.

    Melo is not a starter. And I don’t think them contending for a playoff spot is anything you should use to prove a point, considering they were a huge dissapointment

    And I don't see the Knicks not coming out of this draft with a PG. Can't count on FVV signing here.

    I think there is no way the Knicks go into next year with just the PGs on their roster now. They need to take a leap at that position.

    I wouldn’t mind “reaching” for Nesmith at all.

    We need 3PT shooting more than a PG IMO. Nesmith is so dangerous coming off screens that he will open up the court for others.

    I’d rather trade up for a PG than Poku, but I don’t hate it. Not sure that package gets it done though.

    FVV-RJ-Nesmith-Randle-Wood
    Frank-Dot-Bullock-Knox-Mitch

    When Randle gets traded, put Mitch at the 5 and Wood at the 4.

    no way, every 3pt shooter that comes here shoots a career low, because we have little playmaking or penetration.

    My point was all of Duncan Robinson, Tyler Herro, and Aaron Nesmith achieve the same thing. High level 3 point shooting and not much else.

    Portland’s had some injuries. And they are also playing in the West - they would easily make the playoffs in the East. The stats also backup that Portland has been better with Melo on the floor. Not my favorite route but it’s not as bad as some suggest.

    Hence why we’d get FVV.

    And that’s not true, what about Morris?

    Was that true before this season? I’m not sure. Bullock came off a major back injury, who else really underperformed? Randle was never a good 3PT shooter, he just had a decent stretch last season.

    Nabbing Lewis and Nesmith would solve virtually all of our problems.

    Lewis is lightning quick and great at penetrating/kicking out to open shooters on live-action passes with either hand.

    Nesmith would be our versatile sharpshooter who can find open spots on the perimeter.

    Grab FVV and Wood and that’s a dangerous team IMO. Lewis would get plenty of minutes at back-up PG while Frank can play off-guard/secondary playmaker and defensive stopper.

    By dangerous team I assume you mean dangerous for the team at the 8 seed

    I would sign for Lewis and Nesmith in a heartbeat. Two lethal shooters.
