Poor draft after the first 5 or 6

I remember many wanted Pietrus.

True. 

That draft class was a dog. 

HOWEVER...

David West at #18

Boris Diaw at # 21

Kendrick Perkins #27

WTF are you smoking?

It was top heavy yeah... but one of the best classes ever based on the top alone.

You just answered your own question, Kamburger. 

By the time it was time for the Knicks to pick?  The cupboard was bare.

What aspect of that concept eludes you?

The smart play was to keep Noah on board. If he didn't play nice, banish him; it's a rebuilding year, you can live with the lost roster spot.

But the stretch I'm not a fan of, as I think the Knicks better chance in free agency is in 2020, not 2019. This front office has done mostly good stuff - Fiz, restraint in the Butler situation, Knox/Robinson/Trier. But there's still that myopia - signing Baker and Hardaway to contracts that may not have hurt on day 1 but were ill-advised nonetheless, and now the failure to think sufficiently long-term with the Noah stretch.

I think the numbers may be different than many of us think

Isola and Scalbrine on Sirrius say that with the Noah stretch Knicks will have 31 mil to spend on a player in 2019-20.

They then go on to remind us that this does not include Kanter.  Joking around, they mimick Enes trying to recruit a big name - only to find out then that he cannot stay.

"Knicks need to shed some more money if they want to add a max guy and also keep Kanter".

KP not extended and will now be a restricted free agent when his deal is done.

Fantasy leaders for Hawks-Knicks. Young is one.
