Have to address the backcourt. Preferably, if Conley or Derozan pass on us (highly likely), I'd just sign Jennings and or Gordon to large 1 year deals. Or don't sign anyone (other than LFT & Gallo) and use your cap space to facilitate other deals.

Roll it over to 2017. We'll have 58 mil as of now minus whatever their deals are. Move RoLo and you're in the mid 70's. A ton of big fish to add to Melo & KP.

I think we should strongly consider it. Have enough cap space for two or more guys to play together. I can't help but think that the OKC guys and Harden want to rejoin forces and take out GSW.

Can you imagine a world where (you'd have to move Melo) but you get have a 100 mil in cap space and you add Westbrook Harden KD Ibaka with KP?

Anyway, all starts with not doing something stupid this FA like signing the Jennings of the world to a long term deal

I wonder how attached portland is to crabbe depending on their cap outlook. He's a lights out 3PT shooter with size who can move the ball. Haven't seen him play enough to comment on his defense one way or the other. Only 23 yrs old, too.

I like him a lot, was surprised he wasn't drafted higher.  Traditionally, Portland rarely loses an asset without compensation.

I think we need to prove to be a competitive team before we think about any significant free agent thinking about signing with the Knicks. Remember, every team will have cap space.

I think we should target, young/underrated players. Shabazz Muhammad is a guy I think could come cheap. Maybe take a flyer on Ish Smith.

Being that Phil is banging Clarkson's boss of bosses, I somehow doubt he will make an offer.  Lin might the best deal on that entire list, with JR being a close second.  We have what like 18 million to spend?  There's some talent among the restricted contracts, but you have to overpay to acquire, so that's not a fit.  The very top tier guys will command over 18 mil..Conley, DeRozan, Horford, so what would you guys do?  I like Bazemore, but as a bench guy.  Top starters at a reasonable price at the guard spot seems somewhat limited, especially of you want an impact guy.  Damn, the more I think about Lin for like 5 mil and JR for 8 or something like that, is probably what we need.  I know both are "persona non grata" but man if we would have kept both we would be a hell of a lot better off.

Otherwise, I don't really see many true impact guys on that list at guard that's viable, gettable and reasonable for us.  Who do you guys like?

I think the one big free agent we could possibly lure would be Pau Gasol. He knows the triangle, he could mentor Kristaps, and he could help this team elevate to competing in the playoffs.

He's the perfect fit, but man hes like 36 and we always get guys like him.  Plus he doesn't fill a need.  I would do it if I turned around and flipped Lopez for a decent guard.  Lopez has defintely improved his value, but would you get a  good starting guard for him...probably not

I would take Lin back for that kind of money but Smith isn't a good bet in NY. He said it himself IIRC, he gets distracted playing here. He had one great season for us, I was amazed at how good he can actually play the game when he plays with some smarts. Then he ruined it all in the playoffs and was mostly terrible ever since then for us. He played well in Cleveland for his first season, I haven't paid him much attention this year.

He falls under the Arenas provision 

http://www.hoopsrumors.com/2012/05/gilbert-arenas-provision-2.html

"The Arenas provision limits the first-year salary that teams can offer restricted free agents who have only been in the league for one or two years. The starting salary for an offer sheet can't exceed the amount of the non-taxpayer mid-level exception, which allows the player's original team to use its MLE to match it. Otherwise, a team without the necessary cap space or exceptions would be powerless to keep its player, like the Warriors were with Arenas.

A rival offer sheet can still have an average annual salary that exceeds the non-taxpayer MLE, however. The annual raises are limited to 4.5% between years one and two, and 4.1% between years three and four, but a significant raise can be included between the second and third years of the offer. A team's cap space dictates the average annual salary limit for the entire contract, since the average salary still has to fit under the cap. Let's take a look at a practical example to see the Arenas provision in action.
Jeremy Lin will be a restricted free agent this summer, coming off his second season in the league. The Knicks will own Lin's Non-Bird rights, but the Non-Bird exception certainly won't be enough to match rival offers. Let's say a team with $7MM in cap space wanted to make Lin a four-year offer using all of its cap room. Due to the Arenas provision, an offer sheet could only start at $5MM rather than $7MM, but the overall amount of the offer could total $28MM over four years — the deal would just have to be backloaded, as follows:
[url=http://393bg2eyv3d7a0jp1b2izdxy.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/media/images/2012/05/6a00d834515b9a69e2016305670f5a970d-pi.jpg][/url]
[Image: 6a00d834515b9a69e2016305670f5a970d-800wi.jpg]

Because the first-year salary of the offer sheet doesn't exceed the non-taxpayer mid-level exception, the Knicks can use their MLE to match it, even though that big a third-year raise wouldn't typically be permitted when using the mid-level. If the Knicks chose to match the offer, their cap hit for the next four years would equal the actual salaries above; if they chose not to match, the cap hit for Lin's new team would be $7MM annually.
Of course, just because a club is given the opportunity to use the Arenas provision to keep its restricted free agent doesn't mean it will necessarily have the means. Here are a few situations in which the Arenas provision wouldn't help a team keep its restricted free agent:
  • If the team only had the taxpayer mid-level exception ($3MM) available, it would be unable to match an offer sheet for a Non-Bird free agent if the starting salary exceeded the taxpayer MLE amount.
  • If the team used its mid-level exception on another player, it would be unable to match an offer sheet for a Non-Bird free agent.
  • If the player has three years of NBA experience, the Arenas provision would not apply — only players with one or two years in the league are eligible."

The only way this team will "do anything, be anything or win anything" is if they get 2 big names or get one more big name and have a good point guard/twice the value of Faileron.  Free agency has to provide that either this summer or better yet the summer of next year. The goal has to be a two or three prong attack. With the three prong attack being trading of Melo.. No use beating around the bush with Melo..  Acquiring play makers. Because without them other players seem to stand around scratching their asses. Sick of this over the years and even sicker of the decision makers.

WALTON FAVORED TO BE NEXT KNICKS COACH
Stephen Campbell | Tue. Mar 1 2016, 11:53 am

Kurt Rambis was promoted from assistant to interim coach until the end of the season, but it’s unclear if he’s going to stick around beyond this year. Online book [url=http://www.oddsshark.com/sites/all/links/bovada-article.php][/url]Bovada has released a prop special on who’s going to land the gig with a familiar face topping odds lists.

Golden State Warriors assistant Luke Walton is the odds-on favorite to become the next coach of the Knicks at +300. Walton was handed the reigns in the first half of the 2015-16 season as head coach Steve Kerr recovered from back surgery and didn’t miss a beat for the defending champs, guiding the club to the best start in NBA history.

Walton, 35, is widely perceived as the most attractive coaching option on the market and will very likely be in line for a significant raise this summer.



So my question will be..... does Melo listen to Walton's coaching? Ummmmmmm no.. he should if he wants to stay.. But its more than just the coaching here..

Knicks Interested In Dallas Mavericks Star Chandler Parsons 
3/1/2016
NBA rumors are suggesting that Chandler Parsons might be leaving the Dallas Mavericks via free agency this summer. According to ESPN, the New York Knicks are said to be one of the many NBA teams that are going to pursuethe 6’10”, 230-pound forward. With Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis and Robin Lopez already under contract to the Knicks, the addition of Parsons should make things rather interesting in New York City.

With Carmelo Anthony, the New York Knicks have one of the best pure scorers in the NBA and someone that is still considered a legitimate franchise player. Anthony decided to become more of a team player this season, but he still ended up playing in the NBA All Star game earlier this month. When trade rumors started swirling around Anthony, it was reported that Carmelo turned down any deals because he wants to fulfill his commitment to the Knicks. 
Robin Lopez might not have been the sexiest free agency signing in the NBA this summer, but he has started to prove that he deserves the $54 million contract that New York Knicks president Phil Jackson handed him after being turned down by LaMarcus Aldridge and Greg Monroe. Lopez has shown more than a willingness to do all of the little things, and his presence has made it much easier for Kristaps Porzingis to adapt to life in the National Basketball Association.



Kristaps Porzingis is going to be the franchise player for the New York Knicks in the next couple of years. While there are still games where the Latvian rookie needs to be corralled, Porzingis needs to be on the court if he’s ever going to take the torch away from Carmelo Anthony. Kristaps needs to be allowed to make his mistakes during the games if he is ever going to have enough confidence to become the biggest thing in the Big Apple.

NBA Rumors: Free Agents the Knicks Have Been Tied To



Pending: Mike Conley

Position: Point Guard
Age: 28
2015-16 Slash Line: .422/.361/.839

2015-16 Averages: 31.5 MPG, 15.2 PPG, 6.2 APG, 3.0 RPG, 1.2 SPG, 1.4 3PM
Career Averages: 32.5 MPG, 13.5 PPG, 5.6 APG, 2.9 RPG, 1.5 SPG, 1.2 3PM
The New York Knicks need a point guard, and the Memphis Grizzlies are expected to lose a borderline great one. Never an All-Star, but always ready for the biggest of moments, Mike Conley is headed towards a big payday during the summer of 2016.
According to Stefan Bondy of The New York Daily News, Conley isn’t opposed to the idea of signing with the New York Knicks this coming summer.


Conley will command quite the salary, but his being open to the idea of signing with the Knicks is telling and significant.

Despite losing Marc Gasol to a season-ending injury, Conley has the Grizzlies at 36-24 and in possession of the fifth-best record in the Western Conference. Memphis is 6-2 in the eight games it’s played without Gasol, and Conley is averaging 18.0 points and 6.6 assists during that stretch.
A proven postseason performer who has reached the Western Conference Finals and gone toe-to-toe with the best of the best, Conley’s value is clear.
In New York, Conley would be the perfect player to run point in the Triangle Offense. He’s a committed defender who can space the floor, serve as the primary ball-handler, work off-ball, and work the pick-and-roll as both a facilitator and midrange jump shooter.
Conley is interested in joining the Knicks, and with a targeted salary of $18 million per year, he fits into the Knicks’ budget.
