    Ok Knicks fans no sense in complaining... we all knew this was a weak FA and 99% of these FA got overpaid. I think the Knicks did a great job except the Payton signing and Teague is still available.

    With such a short training camp Thibs will probably put out a rotation of players that he, Woody and Kenny Payne have been working with all summer.

    DSJ / Payton
    RJ / Frank
    Knox / Burks
    Randle / Obi 1
    Mitch / Noel

    DSJ seems to be in shape and has since March to get his head right. He is actually the most talented Point Guard on the team and I think Thibs starts him.

    Frank has been working out in France but looks like he has improved his shooting consistency which will be a big part of him staying on the floor with snipers like Quickley waiting for a chance to prove himself.

    People might not like this but Knox is in a crucial year in his career and KP was brought here from Kentucky primarily to get Knox up to speed. Knox is starting... book it.

    As great as I think Obi will be, Randle is currently averaging 20-10 making 18 million, he is starting too. Thibs made Boozer work in his system, he will do the same for Julius.

    Obi will get 30 minutes per game some how.

    I feel like Quickley, Powell, Iggy, Harper will spend most of the season in G-league unless someone gets injured.

    This rotation is better than what we put on the floor last season and it's time for our young players to step up or get out of here!

    Scott Perry being a G.M. of an NBA team at least inspires me knowing that I can achieve upper echelon positions in this world while effectively having no talent or intelligence.
    Haha that got me

Putting the kids on the court to play in a mess of a situation without shooting or competent PG play is not good for anyones development, and I would actually argue its BAD for their development and can even make them worse or worse-yet sabotage their careers.

    We should not have just gave Frankie the reigns at PG, he is in year 4 and can't dribble inside the arc. That would be horrible for our young bigs who need competent PG play to play off of. Payton isn't the answer which is why we waived him, but he was clearly the best PG left that was willing to come here. And surprisingly Payton/Mitch had some really good splits last year. I think Payton will bring out the best in Obi in the same way. He works well in the 2 man game with bigs which we unfortunately saw last year with Randle........

    Which is why Randle needs to go. He thinks this is his team and clearly did not like taking a backseat to RJ last year and won't like taking a backseat to Obi this year. Thibs is going to try and squeeze every win out of this team so the FO needs to dump Randle, I would even waive him if we can't trade him. Take him out of the picture and things are not so bad and there is a path to our young guys playing respectable basketball.

    Shooting is still a problem, and RJ does not have good a complimentary piece around him in the backcourt with Payton, no doubt about it, but if you let Payton run with our young bigs I think you'll see them thrive at least.
    I agree with this. Not having a balanced team with good shooters and a decent point guard has stunt the development of our young players. Our team has no spacing and our starting point guards are worse than other teamsí third string point guards. Itís hard for veteran players to play on our team, I canít imagine what itís like for the younger guys.

    A couple hours before FA started, it was reported that he was heading to Atlanta. My guess regarding the hold up is that they were first trying to see if they could work out a sign and trade before taking the risk of having an offer sheet matched.

    Awesome. This was the last useful fish in the FA pond. Guess we're rolling with what we've got.

    I think heís a guy who might have gone much higher in the draft if he was given the keys to the offense. Averaging 2 assists in his role isnít that bad, but I feel like he could have went higher playing somewhere else where he could have showed more playmaking ability.

    He reminds me of Curry actually. Similar size, pure shot (42% on 3s and 92% from FT line is tremendous) and Curry only averaged 2.8 assists in his first 2 seasons at Davidson with high usage.
    Steph curry would be very good
