Knicks can't afford to take high risk on long term or big salary players.

Monroe 2 yrs is great for 30mil
West 36mil 3rd yr team opt is ideal
Calderon Early for Felton J.Anderson another no Brainer.
Felton(released) Galloway rights Laberyie for Sefolosha Daye Mack make sense.
Porzingis to NBAD no brainer or keep in Barcelona to develop with Hernangomez. In 2 yrs they both come here nba bodies, with triangle experience.

This will all lead to Knicks trading Melo, multiple picks expiring contracts.Heat make most sense with Bosh wade dragic in place.

Melo for Winslow Napier Deng-exp McRoberts


Playoff team to satisfy fan while still developing 6-7 players. Bringing Hernangomez next will be like adding pick.

West/McRoberts/Zack Auguste-2nd purchased

Realistic Knicks Offseason

Knicks get Gerald Wallace (Waive)

Celtics get Jose Calderon

Sign Greg Monroe who reportedly is seeking a short term deal to receive the benefits of the salary cap increase for 2 years and $30million (2nd year player option)

Sign Rajon Rondo who needs a one year deal to rebuild his reputation for 1 year and $8 million.

Sign Danny Green for 3 years at $24 million

Sign A'mare Stoudemire who said he would be willing to return to New York for 1 year and $5 million

Resign Alexey Shved, Andrea Bargnani, Quincy Acy, Lance Thomas, Lou Amundson, Cole Aldrich, Thanasis Antetokoumpo

Starting Lineup

PG Rondo
SG Green
SF Melo
PF Monroe
C Porzingis



This is a realistic 2015-2016 Knicks roster in my opinion and I think they can make the playoffs in a weak Eastern Conference. Give me your thoughts.

29 Jun 2015 17:21:57
Porzingas is to skinny to play center and your big men will get destroyed against other post players

29 Jun 2015 19:05:14
The bench is nasty.

29 Jun 2015 19:18:36
I didn't say this was an ideal team I said it was realistic. The Knicks aren't going to be able to get guys like Aldridge or Jordan so they have to settle.

29 Jun 2015 20:29:03
Based on that realistic offseason, You are looking at a realistic regular season of. hmm. 18-64

29 Jun 2015 15:51:32
Ok, this is a stretch, but it would be cool to see it happen.

If Melo continues to become displeased with the way Phil Jackson is constructing the Knicks while they continue to miss out on the best free agents, he could demand a trade.

Not many teams would take that hefty contract for a pre-madonna, but the Bulls would because they are in a "win now" mode and need to take a chance. So,


Bulls Get: Carmelo Anthony

Knicks Get: Eric Gordon, Taj Gibson, Doug McDermott, 2 First Rounders (Bulls 2016 & Eventual Protected Kings pick that Bulls own)

Pelicans Get: Joakim Noah

BULLS get the superstar potential and scoring in the playoffs that they need.

Resign Dunleavy (Vet Min)
Resign Hinrich (Vet Min)
Sign Jameer Nelson (Vet Min)
Sign Ryan Hollins (Vet Min)
Sign Dahntay Jones (Vet Min)

Next they could try to sign David West to play PF at a reduced priced for a championship contender. This would keep Mirotic as a spark off the bench and give Portis time to develop.


KNICKS get rid of a whining Melo and get a fresh start. Jackson plans to build trough the draft, but they are NOT in a complete tank mode. They aquire great 2 way player in Gibson, scoring to replace Melo with Gordon, young sharpshooter w/ potential in McDermott, and picks.

Aquire Ty Lawson from Nuggets
Resign Cole Aldrich
Sign Tobias Harris
Sign Robin Lopez


PELICANS get an upgrade at the center position by letting Asik walk and getting Noah. Still a good defender with great passing skills will complement Davis very nicely.

Resign Norris Cole
Resign Alexis Ajinca
Resign Jimmer Fredette
Resign Jeff Withey
Resign Toney Douglas
Sign Chris Copeland
Sign Leandro Barbosa


(All 3 teams make the playoffs)

29 Jun 2015 16:12:13
U got to throw Knicks more I think more is Noah he's a top 5 center when healthy and Noah brings the type of center tht fits in Phil Jackson's triangle mirotic

Pg Galloway
sg Ellis
sf Tobias harris
Pf mirotic
C noah

29 Jun 2015 17:07:12
Funny u want put together butler melo rose all maxed out. With pau u still think you can add west. Learn the cba before u post. Rose is premodonna with far worse situation than Melo with continuous injuries. Melo did not join them 2 yrs ago, their turmoil with management, bulls situation is not much with cheaper owner. Be happy if Butler resigns

29 Jun 2015 17:14:39
why don't the knicks sign Greg

29 Jun 2015 18:52:30
trade works without West buddy, Kingkobe56, and vet players sign for low amount to win rings if you have watch the NBA in the last 5 years. Management turmoil is gone, They fired Thibs. Butler is no doubt coming back to the Bulls. He is currently what is known as a RESTRICTED free agents, which means they can match and offer, but your a CBA expert. Rose is in a much better position than Melo

29 Jun 2015 18:54:29
I'm a bulls fan and this won't work out. + we just drafted our backup PG in Portis.

29 Jun 2015 19:13:29
nevermind, I meant @boogeeny

29 Jun 2015 15:23:01
Knicks offseason:


West 4.5 million (3 years 15 million, 3rd year partly guaranteed player option)

Green 8 million (3 years 27 million)

Monroe 14 million (4 years 62 million)

Aminu 4 million (3 years 15 million, 3rd year partly guaranteed)

Bynum minimum (team option 2nd year, fully unguaranteed)


If Anthony is healthy they will make playoffs in the week Eastern conference.

29 Jun 2015 15:59:25
Green will get more

29 Jun 2015 17:08:58
If we keep Calderon its bc we get Marc Gasol or else he is useless

29 Jun 2015 17:20:17
Greens deal was supposed to be like Asik and Lins in Houston with a 15 million last year but only affect salary cap with 9 million.

29 Jun 2015 07:04:41

28 Jun 2015 19:11:33
New York sign and trades Jose Calderon and Cleantony Early to Pacers for David West. Sign DeAndre Jordan starting at 17 M for 4 Years. Sign Wes Matthews 4y/40M

28 Jun 2015 21:20:14
I can't see Matthews taking that long of a contract for that little.

29 Jun 2015 01:39:23
Mathews wants 15mil/yr and DJ is going to get max.

29 Jun 2015 12:04:12
DJ might get what he wants, but no one is going to give Wes 15 off the Achilles. barely deserved that before then

28 Jun 2015 16:54:43
Knicks get Nikola Pekovic

Wolves get 2016 1st rd pick top 7 protected, Jose Calderon, Quincy Acy, and Travis Wear

28 Jun 2015 19:33:16
The Knicks don't have their 2016 1st Round Pick. The Raptors have it because it was a part of the Barngani trade. Also the Knicks wouldn't want Pekovic's big contract. It would take up too much of their cap space that they can use to get better free agents.

28 Jun 2015 22:23:20
Wolfs say hell pek going to have a good year

28 Jun 2015 23:37:25
no way the Knicks give up a first to get Pek and his contract

29 Jun 2015 00:02:50
T wolves have a back up pg in t Jones. No need for Calderon

27 Jun 2015 21:53:20
76ers / Knicks
76ers / Magic

1.Magic need defensive presence to go along with Vucevic down low.
2. Sixers need someone to shoot the ball.
3. Knicks will most likely sign Monroe, D.West, and possibly one more top FA to help Melo out now, not in a year or two. Plus, Knicks are absolutely depleted of draft picks, not a first or second next year.

1.sixers trade Covington(averaged 14ppg, excellent 3pt shooter, only 24, and could help out NY immediately)LA's#1 and Miami's#1 next year, and all NY's #2's sixers currently own (2018, 2019, 2020, 2021) for Porzingis, grant, and calderon(salary dump).
2.Sixers trade Noel to Magic for Hezonja and Frye(salary dump).
PG: Wroten/Grant
SG: Hezonja/Thompson/JRich(vet min)
SF: Grant/Saric(next year)
PF: Porzingis/TRob/Embiid
C: Okafor/Embiid

28 Jun 2015 17:35:32
Some of these are decent moves. I really like Covington though. I don't like prozingus at all. He looks like keenly olynic to me. Average player.

The Noel trade is interesting but only if we hear Embiid is perfectly fine. And I mean perfect.

28 Jun 2015 17:45:22
knicks say absolutely no.

27 Jun 2015 20:51:46
Mavs get Calderon
Hornets get Felton Early
Knicks get Hawes B.Roberts J.Anderson Barnes

Hornets cut payroll
Mavs get the pg they were successful with

Hibbert 3yr 45 mil Monroe 4 yr 64mil Belinelli for MLE


28 Jun 2015 00:30:24
Hibbert opted in his contract

28 Jun 2015 01:35:31
Barnes is not with Charlotte anymore.

27 Jun 2015 20:22:18
Paul George doesn't have a team that can win

Knicks get Paul George

Pacers get Kristaps Porpinguz, Jose Calderon, unprotected 2016 1st rd pick, unprotected 2018 1st rd pick

27 Jun 2015 21:57:49
Knicks don't have a team that can win

28 Jun 2015 15:00:15
Knicks don't own their 2016 1st, and they are devoid of talent.

27 Jun 2015 15:31:07
Pelicans Offseason

Let Omer Asik walk

Pelicans - Future Protected 1st round
Knicks - Jrue Holiday

Pelicans - Joakim Noah, Doug McDermott
Bulls - Eric Gordon, 2 Future protected 1st Round (NYK & NOP)

Sign Danny Green 3 yr 35 million
Sign Demarre Carrol 4 yr 50 million
Sign KJ McDaniels
Resign Norris Cole, Dante Cunningham

PG - Evans/Cole
SG - Green/McDaniels
SF - Carrol/McDermott
PF - Davis/Anderson/Cunningham
C - Noah/Aijanca

By letting Asik walk and Getting a protected 1st for Jrue Holiday clears enough cap so they can spend money on depth and shooters

27 Jun 2015 11:32:20
Phi - Min - Nyk

Phi gets - Lavine, Shabazz, Larkin, Early, & Min 16 1st

Min gets - Embiid and Tokoto

Nyk gets - Dieng


Martin-Tokoto or FA


27 Jun 2015 14:02:16
No from Minnesota. Towns is a center and we already have one injured center in Pekovic, we don't need another.

27 Jun 2015 14:50:41
Nobody will want Embiid until he's proven healthy.

27 Jun 2015 15:41:09
A center who probably won't play this year for that? GTFO

27 Jun 2015 16:11:19
Sixers pass. Why give away a superstar talent just because we need a point guard. Plus minnosotas first is going to Boston. Top 12 protected in 2016

27 Jun 2015 16:57:08
Can't agree with the above comments more, Min will not give that much for a guy who hasn't even proven he is healthy, let alone that he can actually play

27 Jun 2015 18:31:53
TreGib who the hell do you have on your team that's a superstar

27 Jun 2015 20:45:13
Okafor is a once in a generation talent. I haven't seen a post player that good in a long long time. Embiid is incredible if he can get healthy. And Noel is the best defensive center in a long time as well. I believe he should be fast enough to be a power forward.

Those are the building blocks of superstars. If you don't agree don't watch basketball.

Btw. I'm not saying they're superstars yet. But they got all the potential in the world. The rookie of the year will come from philly this year.

28 Jun 2015 00:33:16
Pretty sure you wouldn't have said that about okafor before the draft

28 Jun 2015 01:54:32
Okafor is good, but I'm not sure about once in a generation talent. That's LeBron you're describing. He's going to be a very good player at worst, but he hasn't played a minute in the NBA yet. So he's done nothing.
People have projected him to be a 20 ppg 10 rpg guy. Every team in sure could use a guy like that, but we're talking about Brook Lopez or Al Jefferson type numbers. And he can't olay good D

28 Jun 2015 16:21:30
Doesn't seem like okafor wants to play in philly after dropping his jersey like he was hella mad at the press conference

29 Jun 2015 05:25:14
76ers pass lol

27 Jun 2015 10:19:26
Absolute crazy idea but here goes

Orlando get Porzingis, Calderon and future 1st

NYK get Oladipo and Harris

Orlando are going to lose Harris so might as well get something for him they give up Oladipo but they jus drafted Hezonja who would complement Payton in their Backcourt, they add Porzingis who helps spread the floor and adds athleticism to their front court. Calderon is an expiring but fills a need for a backup pg then a future first. But a good lineup of

NYK do it as they get two legit players who can contribute right away both still have tons of upside possibly all star potential and means Knicks fans don't have to wait as melo gets older he would have to wait for Porzingis to develop which may take a few years. They get rid of Calderon as well

27 Jun 2015 15:36:05
Nobody wants Calderon and Oladipo is their best player. So he is not going anywhere.

27 Jun 2015 15:49:50
the future first won't come until 2018 lol

27 Jun 2015 02:48:49

NYK get Joel Embiid and Tony Wroten

PHI get Carmelo Anthony

27 Jun 2015 13:44:49
With his Oden like risk I wouldn't trade Cole Aldrich for Embiid.

27 Jun 2015 15:04:58
With his Iverson like game, age, attitude and humongous contract I wouldn't trade Ish Smith for Carmelo Anthony.

27 Jun 2015 16:01:39
please tell me that was a joke if I could trade crap like ish smith for.melo do it in a heartbeat melo is a top 10-15player in the league and the 76ers have the cap room they ain't going to sign any FAs

27 Jun 2015 16:14:12
Carmelo can't win and he cost too much. I also hear he hated the draft for the Knicks. He wants to be traded.

Lower your asking price Knicks fan.

27 Jun 2015 17:09:33
Thanks for the compliment the last time sixers were irrelevant was bc of Iverson. He will be sixer front office soon. appreciate greatness until its gone.

27 Jun 2015 18:16:36
Pretty sure You meant "the last time the Sixers were relevant". lol

28 Jun 2015 18:52:32
but Ish Smith is CRAP and what are you going to do with your cap space??nothing cause no one wants to be in PHI unless you offer them wayy more than thier worth so yeah Melo>Smith

27 Jun 2015 02:47:59

BOS get Carmelo Anthony & GSW 2016 pick

sign : Kevin Love and Robin Lopez

Pg Smart / Thomas
Sg Bradley / Young / Babb
Sf Anthony / Young
Pf Love / Sullinger
Ce Lopez / Zeller

NYK get Jae Crowder st, Evan Turner, David Lee, 2 BOS 1st round picks & Kelly Olynyk

GSW get Gerald Wallace (stretch) & RJ Hunter

27 Jun 2015 17:11:52
We don't want soft Olynyk. The fact the Phil want draft bigs that are soft snow flake makes me think he wants to destroythis team.
