Frank kept out of Euro qualifying bubble by NBA

Other Knicks news- we seem likely to keep Bullock, partly because of his strong ties to CP3 but also due to his character and his friendly contract.

Kiid that is Marc Berman NY Post conjectural BS. 

The Chris Paul gaslighting is media driven. 

Bullock will stick because he is a 3&D wing with three point range...and a friendly contract.

YES You DID. 

But the CP3 inferences are Berman Bullshit of a 'KEVIN DURANT is coming ' level, borne of look at me 'Ma media fabrications. 

Carmelo?

CP3? 

Oladipo? 

DeRozan? 

I have seen or heard nothing that convinces me this is a direction we are pursuing.

These writers need to name stars in their headlines in order to drive more clicks to their articles.
The Knicks may some day stop star-chasing but the writers never will.

Did you ever really believe Durant was coming here?

Different situations altogether - as Paul is not a FA.

What ever do you think we are going to do with our cap space?

Maybe we will be saying NO to players because they are too good.

Yeah, that works.

Please. 

There are other options other than pissing away cap space just to impress the groundlings and the media, such as on trad quick fixes like ancient mariners Carmelo or CP3 or DeRozan, or a talented but nicked up star such as Oladipo (Anthony McDyess anyone...I eagerly anticipate your Jimmer Freddette/Jordan Hill stock response) or the next available shiny object. 

Remember when the Knicks guranteed Travis Bickle or Knight or whatever that big beige bum and your hero Scott Layden also guaranteed the contract of, what was his name, some 7'6" second rounder, Slakvko Vranes or something like that? 

So we had CAP SPACE FLEXIBILITY at precisely the moment during the season, when Rasheed Wallace was traded to the Hawks, where he played ONE GAME, before they offloaded him to the Pistons, where of course, he helped them to a ring. 

On February 9, 2004, Wallace was traded to the Atlanta Hawks along with Wesley Person for Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Theo Ratliff and Dan Dickau. Wallace played only one game for the Hawks, scoring 20 points through three quarters. He also had six rebounds, five blocks, two assists and a steal in a close loss on the road against the New Jersey Nets, though he did not score in the fourth quarter. Wallace was again traded, in a deal that saw him go from the Hawks along with guard Mike James from the Celtics to the Pistons. In turn, Detroit sent guards Chucky Atkins, Lindsey Hunter and a first-round draft pick to Boston and guard Bob Sura, center Željko Rebrača and a first-round draft pick to Atlanta. Boston also sent forward Chris Mills to Atlanta to complete the deal.

I remember being quite frustratted at the time, because if we had maintained cap/roster flex, we might have had a piece of that pussy, if not Wallace outright. 

CAP SPACE IS NOT SIMPLY THERE TO BE SPENT for fuck's sake. 

A team flush with cap space can help facilitate three and four team trades by virtue of being able to absord contracts, and can garner muliple draft picks in the bargain.  This is how successful franchises evolve. 

As for 2020?

Do we have a shot at Fred Van Vleet?  Doubtful. 

Do we have a shot at Anthony Davis?  CUE LAUGH TRACK....

The NBA is now talking about training camps beginning on December 1st. 

The draft is what, mid-November? 

Not much time for free agency to play out. 

Not that we have a realistic shot at them, but 2021 Giannis and Kawhi could both be on the market. 

In any event, oh Grand Vizeer, who have YOU TARGETTED as realistic free agent or trade options for the Knicks?

But my point was that CHAMACO CARTERO is very happy about it. So he lent her his face for the HISTORIC PHOTO.
