Randle has actually shown he can play better when surrounded by a better cast, most of our roster still has to prove that.
    he's never even played a single playoff game, what role did he have with a better cast? if it were up to Rose he'd be on his 4th team in 4 years next season, unfortunately no one is taking that contract.

    agreed, but even he wouldn't stop me from signing Gallo, Poku is 18. Gallo on a 2-3 year deal would be a great mentor.

    You just explained exactly why you pass over Gallo. He's always hurt, costs 15 to 20mill, and blocks Kev in yr 3 of a big decision yr. when he'll never be here long term. Gallo would simply come to the Knicks to get HIS like all the other vets do. Haven't we seen this before? Gallo would be another example of Knick mgt. incompetence.

    Oh yeah Iím all for Gallo. Plus at his age/injury history playing him like 28 minutes a night is fine, which still leaves PT for Knox etc.

    I think you want some vets, just about getting the right ones who bring fire and leadership and can legit spread the floor since thatís an area we typically stink at.

    Does Knox really need much more than 20 minutes a night this season? He stunk last year - give him a bench role with consistent but limited minutes to see what he can do with that before just handing him starters minutes. Make him earn it, hopefully he does.

    You guys sound silly saying "why did we sign vets that will never be here long term and block youngsters from developing" and then say "we should get Gallo". Uhhh helllooo

    I was admittedly optimistic on him. DSJ as well..

    Obviously, neither did anything but prove me wrong. I donít like the total regression in Knox game. I also donít like the lack of fire/confidence. Iím not saying heís definitely a bum. But I wouldnít hesitate to start coming up with other plans

    and Iíve said all along I donít want RJ at 2. I want a good shooting backcourt, and RJ at the 3

    And when I say young talent, I mean guys I see being good, and being here a while. Right now, thatís RJ and Mitch. Thatís it.

    Exactly. I donít understand this. What does 32 year old Gallo do for this team long term? Absolutely nothing.

    Because of covid, we might be able to get him for less. Heís definitely worth $20M.

    Gallo shoots over 40% from three on 8 attempts a game and wins everywhere he goes. On a short deal I donít see how heís blocking anyone. Make Knox outperform him over the next two seasons and earn his spot.

    There are things I like about Knox but he has a very long way to go before heís a winning player.

    I still have him in my starting lineup until we inevitably trade him. Wood at the 5 and Randle at the 4 while Mitch plays the 1st half in his accustomed backup C role playing 25-30 mins a game.

    Everyone says we need spacing for Mitch. I have no idea why,... so he can catch a lob??? He has no inside game whatsoever. It's either a lob or a put back. He's not posting up. Yes, RJ needs space because he can't shoot but Mitch won't even TAKE a shot out of the lane. Mitch is a glorified roll player right now and building around him at this point is a flawed strategy imo. WE NEED DOGS....

    but at PG there are 5-6 guys that we can draft and groom, wouldn't make sense to draft someone like Cole and then 7 days later sign FVV to a megadeal. Gallo wouldn't be taking minutes from someone we just drafted.
    Cole and FVV could play together in some lineups.

    Cole would be an ideal 6th man early on in his career.
