Turn On The Knicks:
Tim Hardaway Jr.
New York Knicks
The New York Knicks had a splashy start to the off-season by trading for Andrea Bargnani…and you know, actually using one of their draft picks. Yet, it has quieted down since then, outside of a never ending rumor mill of backup big men, point guards and defensive minded wings. Where does the roster stand right now and what is left to do?
For the first time in a long time, the Knicks are going to have the opportunity to return their exact starting line-up from a previous season along with their 6th man. It remains to be seen if Mike Woodson will move away from his consistently successful small-ball, two point guard line-up of Raymond Felton-Pablo Prigioni-Iman Shumpert-Carmelo Anthony-Tyson Chandler with JR Smith being the first player off the bench, but let’s hope he doesn’t. Those 6 players were the overwhelming majority of the cause for a 54 win team last season…so let’s not go around fixing what isn’t broken.
After the top 6, the Knicks are working with Amare Stoudemire, his 20 ...

I lined this out for you guys yesterday about why Carmelo could leave the Knicks next season. So to me, this makes sense as to why he would expect this. ‘Melo is a smart guy. He sees the Eastern Conference. And he knows that the Knicks are at best, 4th or 5th seed next season. [...]
After being waived by the Minnesota Timberwolves in a cap related move, Greg Stiemsma, the 6’11” 259 pound center that earned his contract playing in Boston, was released today by the T-Wolves.

Tim Hardaway Jr.: After being selected with the 24th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Hardaway Jr. has high expectations set by many Knicks fans. Before the Knicks re-signed J.R. Smith to a multi-year extension, many thought he could replace Smith as a sixth man scorer. Now that Smith is inked in as a Knick for at least three years, Hardaway Jr. will not be a replacement...
Masai Ujiri is prepared to stand pat after trading Andrea Bargnani in exchange for three players and three draft picks.
“What are we going to do, throw players away?” Ujiri said at the prospect of “tanking.” Last week’s rumor of dealing Rudy Gay to Detroit for the expiring contracts of Rodney Stuckey and Charlie Villanueva might be an example of what Ujiri was talking about...
