Meanwhile, Back On Planet Earth

Walker also saved flattering words for another French PG in Ntilikina, taken eighth in the 2017 draft. Walker was the ninth pick in 2011 — the same slot as Knicks rookie Kevin Knox.

“I like him,” Walker said of Ntilikina. “I thought he got better every day as the season went on. I’m a fan of him. He can really defend and has great length. You can see he’s getting better, man. That’s what this league is all about. I can tell he works on his game. Got to respect that.”

That's what bodiddley looks like Carlos?

I always pictured him more as a MR. Spock.



Like Shiva, he has different forms:

Shiva's body is said to consist of five mantras, called the pańcabrahmans. As forms of God, each of these have their own names and distinct iconography:

Sadyojāta
Vāmadeva
Aghora
Tatpuruṣa
Īsāna

Plus two additional modern pańcabrahmans:

New Age crystal ball seer
MR. Spock

Money went to Nurkic and Curry

Swanigan and Collins are ready for Davis;s minutes.

The other Scurry got a small 2/$5.6M contract from POR.
He missed all of last year rehabbing, so was available on the cheap.

Nurkic's 4/$48 seems reasonable.
It's the Turner and Leonard contracts clogging up cap space.
Myers really needs a new team.

Dont confuse things

They couldnt do anything with Turner and Leonard

Allowing the 2 restricted guys to leave (which was the issue) gave more room for Nurkic and Curry.

Lillard hated losing Davis.  Hated losing Napier

We will have to see how Curry and Baldwin turn out and how the guys getting Ed Davis's minutes play before killing POR on their moves.

Does Nurkic get the same pact, does Curry get inked if Hezonja comes on board?  Maybe not.  I dont think saying Hezonja was never offered by Portland (or POR never discussed 2 years with him) is proper thought.

Ed Davis is good but of course you let him go to free up minutes for Zach Collins.

Yeah. Big picture.  Collins can play.

Keep the big guy Nurkic happy, first and foremost.  He and Lillard are your bread and butter.

Noah's Arc

https://nypost.com/2018/08/18/knicks-new-rebounding-machine-looks-to-reboot-career/

Kanter
Hezonja/Vonleh
Knox
Hardaway
Ntilikina

First off the bench [a competitive scrum here].

Kornet/Robinson
Vonleh/Hazonja, Thomas
Burke/Mudiay, Dotson

Personally, I think Hezonja would be more valuable as a sixth man coming off the bench at SF/PF, but I suspect Fizz wants to amp up his confidence.  Vonleh might be a nice stablemate for Kornet. 

Lots of options.  Month and change before Fizz gets 'em in the playpen and tosses some raw meat to the dawgs. 

I could also see Burke playing off the ball with Mudiay at the point.

Guess or preference?

I think Fiz likes Mudiay.  You have said yourself.
