Talk about a motherfucker who in no way shape or form will tip his hand. 

Confounding on a certain level. 

Refreshing on another. 

Most of what I read in the way of conjecture in the media [such as Marc Berman's ENDLESS projections about cap space for Chris Paul] and blogosphere fantasy camp about Lillard and Beal [the latter looking to be a lock to remain on the Wizards, what with Coach Unseld Junior coming on board, his good friend Pope joining the team, the drafting of Kispert, an infusion of talent in Kuzma and Harrell--stay tuned for possible deals, here--and a core of young talent in Thomas Bryant, Davis Bertans, Rui Hachimura and Deni Avdija.

Wizards a team to follow, surely.  Should be fun.

Most of these would make more sense if we hadn't drafted ObiT.


Heh

Good to have you back, Bo.

Here's the thing. Forget about we don't need ____ because we have Obi & Randle, or we don't need THT because we already have ______.

The next time, or some upcoming time, a disgruntled Harden/Davis/(Lillard)/(whoever) comes up we are very likely to be a player. That plus an A List free agent is clearly THE PLAN. That's how we get our A1 Dog, since it is not Randle and it is pretty damn unlikely to come about through the draft.

We are going to give up that big basket of preserved picks. That's why we have it.

We are going to give up some serious talent. Randle might even be in that package.

You want to have as much leftover in the closet as possible for when that moment arrives.

So you keep stocking up. In the meantime, competition is good for everybody.


*** I would love to include Zach Collins in that stocking up.

Randle certainly capable of being part of a BIG THREE.

RJ not there yet.

So, we seek the SECOND piece.

a pretty strong big three in fact...

...but he ain't lead dog in a finals contending trio, no way no how, so we gonna try and grab one for sure if the opportunity arises and be willing to part ways if necessity necessitates.


**** think I'm calling back my Zach Collins, I checked on his health per Bo ó just had ANOTHER surgical revision on his stress fracture three weeks ago, real bad stuff for a big man, would still throw the minimum but no more..

I'd expect that a PF such as Zach Collins, likely signing on to a make-good one year deal to get his career back on track, would look at the NYK roster with Randle & ObiT in place and figure minutes would be hard to come by.  And go elsewhere where PF minutes are available.  While Knix would have to question whether a 3rd-string PF was a good use of cap space.

Otoh, Batum, Porter, Duncan Rob, Oubre or another SF could see an opportunity to start or get good minutes as a backup Knick.

Malik Monk is of no further use to Charlotte and hits the unrestricted free agent market.

My own targets?  Assuming Ball ain't on the radar?

DeMar DeRozan
Cameron Payne
Reggie Jackson

Marc Berman: Frank Ntilikina, longest-tenured Knicks, going to be an unrestricted free agent. Knicks didnít submit a qualifying offer at 5 pm deadline, taking off restricted tag. Could still re-sign him. Ė via Twitter NYPost_Berman

Farewell, Frank.

McBuckets, Ariza, and Nader from Phoenix are guys Iím looking at among the UFAs who played elsewhere last year

That's a thought. 

But we just got Quentin Grimes.  Prefer to go with the new kid on the block.  Bigger.  Stronger.  Healthier.  FRESHER.

Not so sure that Frank is history. 

At 8.36 million for a qualifying offer? 

No way Jose. 

For considerably less? 

We shall see.

I hope thereís nowhere for Monk on the Knicks. Is Charlotte done trimming their backcourt?

The play is to re-up Rose while Chicago wrestles w New Orleans over Ball. If we get that done, I think everything else will fall into place.
