Trade targets if the Knicks strike out in free agency

Posting and Toasting (The Ghost of Kristaps Past) — Turning into a haven for salary dumps....... In Parts One , Two and Three of this series, I’ve examined players the Knicks could target in free agency that would improve the team and maintain cap flexibility moving forward if they don’t land two max free agents. But there’s other ways to use cap space, which many would argue is more prudent and forward-looking. It’s not very complex....

Knicks talent evaluators might like Cam Reddish far too much

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — Reddish dead-ish irredeemable. An interesting story came out this afternoon from Ian Begley about Knick talent evaluators possibly liking Duke’s freshman wing Cam Reddish . Begley has always been pretty well connected, and as such this report shouldn’t be taken lightly. Whether it will carry real weight come draft night is still to be determined. ...those in the Knicks’ front office...

Know the Prospect: Talen Horton-Tucker

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — A brolic two-way driller that New Yorkers will love. If New York’s lottery odds have you worried, take a look down the line and think deeply about what changing your team’s long term trajectory looks like. It certainly involves taking a huge chunk of clay and carefully molding a young star into something statuesque. Rookies just have a way of needing time. Even the kids that hit the ground...

Free agent targets if the Knicks strike out in free agency: Bigs

Posting and Toasting (The Ghost of Kristaps Past) — The frontcourt may not be the most pressing need but there’s still work to be done In Parts One and Two of this series, we looked at potential guards and wings the Knicks could target if they sign just one or no star free agents. While wing and guard are certainly bigger problem areas for the team as currently constructed, they’re not completely set with bigs, either. Mitchell...

Las Vegas sportsbook gives Knicks 16-1 odds to win the title next year

Posting and Toasting (BennyBuckets71) — Seems like a smart bet! The Knicks are coming off one of the worst seasons imaginable, but according to one Las Vegas sportsbook the team is a good bet to win it all next year, primarily because of persistent rumors concerning certain free agents to be.

Free agent targets if the Knicks strike out in free agency: Wings

Posting and Toasting (The Ghost of Kristaps Past) — We all know the names at the top of the list but who are the wings they can target if they strike out? In Part Un of this series I took a gander at some of the guard options available to the Knicks in a scenario where they land one or (doomsday scenario) zero max-level free agents. The rebuild will continue in earnest at that point, but I remain skeptical the Knicks wouldn’t at least...

Posting and Toasting (BennyBuckets71) — Maybe keep him fixated on music so he doesn’t become fixated on fixing the Knicks A group on behalf of all MSG shareholders are suing James Dolan over allegations that he is overpaid and spends too much time making music instead of running the business, and although the effort is appreciated, we should probably allow Dolan to continue chasing his musical dreams so he doesn’t start...

Free agent targets if the Knicks strike out in free agency: Guards

Posting and Toasting (The Ghost of Kristaps Past) — KD and Kyrie sounds great, but what should the Knicks do if their wildest dreams come crashing down?
