Perry is going to have to make a hard pitch to Burke, Beas, and possibly to Williams or Kornet if they come on in their opportunities. The tool he’ll have is space made by stretching Noah. Jo is not making enough on his next deal to balance a buyout. We’re going to have to stretch him to have money to get commitments from those guys. I also hope we offer and KO accepts the MLE as a reasonable salary for the next few years.

That plus a useful pick or two gives us enough of a talent base to go forward with some desirable but not essential vets to offer in trades.

Hey genius, they had to hold Trey out of the G-League Showcase Game to keep him from getting snapped up.  The Knicks nurtured Trey, and he was tearing things up at Westchester.

So the jig was very much up.  



Keep your day job.

OKC barely scraped by SacKings on a 1 sec left 3 by Rustbrook.
I tuned in 2nd half and Vince led Sack on a 15-0 run to take a 5 point lead.  Westbrook kept chucking up bad shots.  Then Zach went on a slow-motion rampage.  Zach & Vince enarly beat the mighty Oaks.

college scandal is dramatic and long over-due.

what happens to the one who cheated  ( players and teams ) is an unknown.

however, there will be consequences.

This is satire right.  Ironica Hispanico, si.

Is not possible you are that stupid. 

I mean, gee, they ate Sessoions contract to bring him up. 

They gave him a shot to prove himself in the G-League.

Maybe they would like to bring him back next year, and the year after? 

Showcase him?

How about letting him make a case for himself. 

Oh, but that's right, featuring our young players of the future is not enough. 

We need to actively tank. 



But Scott Perry is stupid. 

Check.

Kam, Carlos et al,

My preferred lotto reform concept: one lottery ball for every victory after mathematical elimination (added perhaps to a base of one or two lottery balls for every team which misses the playoffs). Perhaps a good idea to remove a lottery ball for every time a team has moved up in the lottery in the past three years.

What does this accomplish? The end of season means something to each and every team; right up the last game of the season the fans of the even the worst teams will be hoping for victories and so will the teams themselves. Bad teams still have an advantage (draft placement among teams that don't move in the lottery, and an earlier mathematical elimination date which means more chances to win lottery balls).


So if you're eliminated on the final day of the season you don't get anything for being halfway good?  i thought we want to reward the good teams not the teams that tank for the first 60 then play really hard at the end. That could lead to bad things.  Playing injured guys to try to win meaningless games i dont know if i like

Under the current system, you don't get anything either. Under this system at least the odds are much, much flatter.

Carlos, I think there is always something to be gained by our players playing well. Not getting Burke to give us another year was not great, but I think it speaks to Burke’s confidence in himself which feeds into his effectiveness. Maybe Timmy can talk him into reupping with us next season.

How badly does Noah want to join a playoff team?

Cleveland and OKC seem to have roster spots and a desire for frontcourt depth with experience. Both teams have trade exceptions - $5.8 mil for CLE from the Irving trade and $2.4 mil for OKC from Sabonis. We might be able to get a few mil back if another team can pony it up instead. It would be a bigger bite, but be over quicker than stretching Noah next season. It would probably mean not having a budget for one of O’Quinn, Beasley, or Burke, depending on the market.

One Knick scout, of African origin, was involved in part of the scandal.  I forget his name.
