New York Knicks Sign Jason Smith

We knew it would only be a matter of time before the Knicks used their mini mid-level exception on a player that can contribute to the team this year, and they did just that by signing big man Jason Smith to a one-year $3.3 million deal.

Why You Shouldn’t “Love” the Thought of Kevin Joining the Knicks

For all of the grief that the Knicks get about trading draft picks, there’s seems to be an awful lot of support about giving away some of the young guns to acquire Kevin Love. While the thought of having another All-Star to keep Carmelo Anthony happy seems nice on the surface, I’m not sure if Love is the right guy.
