Can't tell how much cap space Twolves have but Rose for Rubio doesn't make sense from Minny side of thing; they want to get rid of Rubio cause he can't shoot... and Rose is the answer?

I think Minny targeting Lee for Rubio IF they can also get Lowry/Hill/Jrue Holiday in offseason.

Small line up PG (who can space and pass), Lee, Butler, Wiggins, Towns is nice.

Or, if Minny gets PG, how about Lee/KOQ for Rubio and 2018 first rounder?

I was thinking the same thing. The only thing I can think of is they believe Rose could be a stud instant offense player off the bench. They can bring Tyrus Jones along at PG. And they can fill in shooters with the rest of their FA moves.

Add me to the list that believes that Thibs would like a Lee for Rubio trade if he's indeed looking for shooters, like this article says.

Thibs would also get a good defender which he really needs. Not so sure I would want Rubio considering the holes in his game, but if any player could make passing contagious, Im guessing Rubio would. Would do a better job of finding KP than Rose.And the New York stage seems like a good fit for his personality. Better Rubio than Rose.

Knicks need to go out and bring in Rubio and Teodosic so that Frank can learn how to play the pg position. I'd Frank defense translate he can play with both players. I think Frank needs the Schroeder treatment but hopefully Frank becomes a better pg than Dennis

That would be much better than what Rosen was proposing in the link you posted last night.
I've seen scant proof that a majestic aura trumps a sound plan, but maybe that's just because I wasn't looking at Phil Jackson... Seth Rosenthal 2014

Only role player such as Manu

Toni Kukoc? Eh
None nba hall of famers such as Dirk.


So the knicks #8 pick bust in making
Later on not now.

This is why knicks cant build winning


Tony Parker is a role player? I hope Frank is a 6 time All Star

Given that there hasn't been much differentiation in titles these past few years, foreign players who have been on very good teams or have impacted the league that have played in the last 20 years:

To be honest I think DSJ should learn from DRose that High Octane athletic style puts you at greater risk of injury. The stresses on cartilage, tendons and ligaments are extreme.

That's the thing that makes him so great is that he is not a high octane guy all the time like Fox is. Instead he at times he waits and let things develop. He is a crafty half court pnr guard that Just so happens to have an extra gear and elite of the elite level explosion.

Yeah, missing out on that slam dunk championship will really set the organization back. How will we ever recover?

So you're expecting Smith to control himself on drives? From what I saw in college he goes to the basket hard and ends up on the floor a lot. Fox is high energy, as is Frank, but I don't think they're high "altitude" like Smith or Rose.

Was quite ready to accept Smith if we took him, but he is a high flyer who will try to dunk over opponents at times.

We will see.

EnySpree: Can we agree to agree not to mention Phil Jackson and triangle for the rest of our lives?
