Yeah, those two definitely threw me for a loop. Also, remember when S&T’s wouldn’t happen

History suggested the S&T's were unlikely! This offseason has been crazy in a number of ways though. Feels like half the league shifted around.

We're being held hostage by an aloof introvert, dammit. And I will not stand for it.

honestly until KD comes back the VC/Kidd/RJ/Martin days will always be better

those days still might be more entertaining than anything ever for the Nets but KD/Kyrie could bring a ring there which is obviously better championship wise

Never forget that the Knicks used all their “2 MAX CONTRACTZ” space on Taj Gibson, Eldridge Payton, Bobby Portis and Wayne Ellington.

I want Kawhi to re-sign with the Raptors and then I want the Raptors to sign VC for his farewell tour and then I want them to repeat with VC holding up the trophy and being carried off the court. Basketkino.

I want the same but with Nathan Jawai instead of Vince Carter.

I appreciate this post

didn't even realize Kawhi was drafted by Pacers and dealt for George Hill

nba draft day trades are gold

Yeah, they absolutely did. They could have used that space to acquire picks. Instead they’re gonna field a 28 win roster.

What picks? They can use the guys now as trade bait at the deadline if they so choose. It's extremely difficult to develop guys with awful teams around them, as Philly showed. Embiid and Simmons only developed because they finally had SOMETHING to work with.

Who are they gonna develop? The guy you hate and wrote off before he got into the league? And Philly HAD those guys to develop in the first place because they acquired every draft pick imaginable.

Teams want to unload bad contracts all the time. They could have used it as a dumping ground instead.

I didn't write off RJ Barrett, I think he probably is a mess unless they restrict him a bit and adding vets around him will help that. I think Knox is a lot cause but who cares about Knox.

I think the Knicks did the third best thing you can do with cap room. First being signing real stars, second getting draft picks for taking bad contracts.

The Knicks put a team together with reasonable short term contracts. A few of which have high upside.

i can see both sides of the argument, but by having a 2nd year team option for most signings, they're flexible with controlling their roster and cap situation on an off-season by off-season basis.

if they take on bad contracts, they have a limited selection of players to choose from, as opposed to going after guys they prefer, like they did this offseason. the latter is more conducive to building a positive culture with players that chose to play for the knicks.

i know the next few offseasons aren't great FA classes but i like the flexibility.
