And i think Taj, a brooklyn kid, enjoys lacing it up for his NY Knix and knows he wouldn't start for most contending teams.

Is that enough to get him re-up on a smaller longer deal if we don’t pick up his option?

The suggestions of JVG and Thibbs show a defensive effort oriented approach is favored by the new management. I still think Miller should get a real shot since those are the qualities he’s bringing out in this roster.

I don't think we are going to need his option money.  I think we gladly pick up his option.  If a trade opens up we are going to need salaries to match.  I think we keep almost everyone this offseason and don't really sign anyone.  Save money for 2021.

I think that’s a good plan, but with our picks, ending deals, and new prez, I think we might be getting calls in and around draft day.

Hopefully Dolan lets Rose work.  Not like he did when he shortcircuited Phil.

Phil was a lazy egoist who short circuited his own sorry ass.

It'd be no surprise if the front office wants to higher its own coach.  And the opp is there with just an interim in place,  a no-namer, and the team still losing.   Miller would have to be golden to keep his job.   I'd give him. 10% chance of being extended.  Just the way things are.

Don't need some marketing turd letting the word out,  but its pretty obvious anyway.

Thibs seems a very good match.   He's close with Rose,  knows NYC/NYK, and gets his guys to play hard.   Not much of a development coach, and prefers to ride his starters big minutes and play a short bench. 

You'd have to wonder if Knox or Franc would fall through the cracks.  Especially Knox who is a bad defender.

Would love to see JVG return (and bring SVG if he wants).   But not sure van Gumby wants to coach a bad team.

I've never been good at knowing which coach is right for which team.

I've been glad a few coaches j like have found success lately,  namely Nate and Gentry.   I also like Bzdelik and Lawrence Frank,  though they settled in as top assistants.

As for that FA list,  about a dozen guys I'd be interestd in.   Depending on salary/contract demands.

Saric and Jerami Grant are good buy low candidates, but since both play PF where Randle is ensconced, they aren't priorities.  I'd take either for cheap.   Say $6M Saric and $9M Grant.

PG's:
 check out the FVV market.   He's shrimpy but tough.  Sort of a Jameer Nelson type.

RegJax for cheap.   He's always injured and not that great a starter.   But for cheap,  can roll the dice.
Conley?   A vet,  but short PG's don't age well.  Utah should have been a great fit.

Word is out on Bertrans, so likely pricey.   But My Leonard and Frank Tank are 7' shooters who could be had cheap.   We need shhoting. Probably just 15-20 min a night guys.   But both have talent.  $5M for these guys should be bargains.

Other shooters:
Bogdanx2
Malik Beasley
Dillon Brooks has really blossomed,  but an RFA and I assume Griz ain't getting outbid for him.

Hope you’re all wrong about what Rose is going to do.
Do I need to look for another team to root for?
I miss Mills already.

I'd take Dragic for 3/$30M, but why would he leave MIA for that?   Well maybe to regain a starting role...

Otto Porter would be a great fit on these Knix.   How much will he command?   I'd rather slide him $15M rather than Portishead.

Plumlee is a terrific role player. How much does he require?

On the margins,
Dunn is a better Franc than Franc.
WCS is big and young.   Should be a bargain

I'm mainly thinking shooters,  and PG's and defenders. All of which are tough to draft.
