    You misread, it was at least one suitor in each conference after the deadline and both parties then would have to agree to a buyout.......I remember Ellington saying he wasn't interested in a buyout so didn't really matter, and after the deadline we get nothing back, it only would have opened up more time for younger players, and Miller was coaching for his career.

    Ellington seems like a good guy. He won’t be back and we will all forget he existed

    He’s 6’6” and only 1 inch taller than Dotson. Dotson has accomplished more in the NBA than Bullock did when he was 25 years old.

    Dotson showed rust earlier in the season coming off his shoulder injury, but he looked better than ever over the last 2-3 months.

    If we had to choose between the two, it shouldn’t even be a question. I don’t mind bringing Bullock back, though. He might be better next season further removed from his back surgery.

    I’d pick Dotson to. He is more fun. I don’t know if I would if I were the Jazz or Warriors for next year, in fact I don’t think I would. I would expect Bullock to be back to his normal next year.

    Like I said. I don’t think you can say Dotson is clearly better. I really do think Bullock will start next year. It wouldn’t surprise me if whoever is coaching will try to win games, start Bullock, and get roasted on here. Maybe Dotson breaks out somehow. That’d be great. He is more then likely not a long term piece though and winds up being a respectable player and NBA journeyman like Bullock

    "While Ellington’s 3-point shot didn’t fall as much as everyone hoped, he added value. However, the money will make it difficult for the 32-year-old to return next season. The journeyman may be onto his 10th team in 2020-21." -Chris Berman

    This. ALL of this.

    He was brought in because the Knicks lacked shooters. He's a 32 year old in decline but he wants to get paid more. He's been on nine teams already...if you've been on THAT many teams in your career, I'm sorry...you're a place holder at best.

    Ehh just based of this season I think he's better. Bullock has no handle or playmaking abilities and hes been in the league awhile. Dotson has been showing flashes of improving his game

    Dotson is also one of our best at attacking close outs. He’s more athletic than people realize and I just feel like he’s potentially a good two way role player. Keep him imo.

    Ellington is an overpaid min player - has only value for a contender pretty much. Never understood the contract.

    I hope he stays to. I just don’t find it relevant. Everyone on here likes to say things like everyone needs players like blah blah. That maybe true but when everyone has players like blah blah they are interchangeable. Dotson is like that. If we had KP and were decent would Dotson or Bullock be a debate for anyone? It shouldn’t be bc they are interchangeable. If I had to choose I’d take the more proven player on a winner and less proven younger one on a loser.

    Outside of Mitch and RJ I think Dotson as a little more chance to be more then a journey man. His shot seems pretty pure he just has to find and take it without hesitation. It’s still a outside chance imo

    Taj Gibson Part 6 of a series analyzing the New York Knicks:

    If Tom Thibodeau becomes the next Knicks head coach, Taj Gibson can be assured of a spot on the roster.

    Otherwise, it’s going to be a tight squeeze. His team option is meaty despite the good work he put in this season as the Knicks’ starting center and Mitchell Robinson’s mentor.

    After the Knicks got off to a 1-7 start, former coach David Fizdale promoted the 34-year-old, 6-foot-9 lunchpail big man into the lineup. And Gibson never relinquished his spot.

    The Fort Greene native made 56 starts and wound up setting his career-best in field-goal percentage at 58.4 percent.

    Not known as a gifted 3-pointer shooter, Gibson’s buckets were of the gritty or garbage variety — hence making him the perfect role model for Robinson.

    “Taj was solid on the court, but he was even better in the locker room,’’ one member of the Knicks family said. “He helped Mitch understand the pro game and how to carry yourself if you want to play in the NBA and have an impact.’’

    When the defense-minded veteran signed a two-year, $19 million deal in July, Gibson told The Post that molding Robinson was his No. 1 priority. He didn’t let the organization down. When Marcus Morris was traded Feb. 6, Gibson also became the clear No. 1 leader in the locker room.
    And the Brooklyn product really would like to return.

    “He takes great pride in being a Knick,’’ his agent, Mark Bartelstein, told The Post. “It means a lot to him.”



    Gibson’s second year is worth $9.5 million. If the Knicks waive him, only $1 million will count on the cap.

    The Knicks have eyed 2021 as the date they would like to make their big splash, but Gibson’s number is deemed high. Unless, that is, new president Leon Rose taps Thibodeau, who coached Gibson in Chicago and Minnesota.

    Gibson is one of Thibodeau’s favorite players and Gibson spoke glowingly of him last month, saying he got a raw deal with the Timberwolves.

    There’s no ego with Gibson, who currently is self-isolating in New York due to the coronavirus pandemic, and he hopes to see Robinson evolve as the starter next season.

    “It’s his seat,’’ Gibson told The Post earlier this season. “I’m just keeping it warm for him. … He’s a starting center and all he has to do is grow. If he pushes himself like he’s doing, he’ll be an All-Star. He doesn’t know how good he is.”

    Veteran would be happy to stick around to assist young Knicks


    The coaches give Gibson a share of credit for helping Robinson reduce his glut of fouls, especially the final two months. They were Frick and Frack — Gibson working out with Robinson in the weight room and constantly in his ear.

    “He’s grown and understands the seriousness of the game now,’’ Gibson said. “He’s not just going out there playing.”

    Gibson didn’t log a ton of minutes (16.5 per game), but Fizdale and interim coach Mike Miller liked how the Knicks got off to smooth starts. The Knicks were 4-3 when Gibson scored 12 or more points and 7-7 when he logged 20-plus minutes.

    If Robinson emerges into All-Star status, Gibson deserves some kudos.

    Gibson is what everyone expected. He seems like a total pro. He definitely isn’t worth 9 mil so I assume he is gone. I liked to be convinced otherwise
