He should have a market. Might as well get a 2nd rounder. Let him go someplace he can play

that's good to see... that said, everyone knows we have to cut someone... so I don't see anyone dealing for him... unless the guy collecting DNPs develops a surprising market

Surprised that we didnt even see Kuz in the preseason. Sounds like they made a commitment to move him
before the season started. At least he's healthy as far as we know. Any draft pick woukd be great.

It's going to be hard. You're trading him based on what he did last season, which isn't much. We might be looking at a protected second-round pick.

He was recovering from injury?

Is Frederick still alive? He was going through a real dark period a few years ago.

Not that I know of. Was saying that I dont know of any injury that would keep him on the bench. Pretty sure we would have heard something by now,

He was nursing an ankle, think he hurt it early in training camp, that's why he missed all but 1 preseason game.

LOL, thats news to me. Sounds like he might get cut if they cant move him.

Apparently that Vince Carter dunk had a major impact on his life in a negative way.

I would think we can get at least another guard for him

Kuz is a Jackson guy with little or no upside at this point.

Wish he had a spot here, but there is really nobody he could replace.

A lot of Jackson guys fit what we're doing.
Think Kuz should have gotten a chance first.
Even the guy they are making room for - Noah - is a Jackson guy who is declining in value and production.

Think we should cut Beasley before we cut Kuzminskas. Kuz can shoot the 3, fits Hornachek's offense well, and if Lance Thomas or CLee go down (Or Timmy) we really don't have a small forward or wing player that can do what Kuz can.

I don't mind dealing him for an asset, but if they can't, I rather they cut Beasley.

Weren't the blazers interested in him before the season? We should be able to get a second round pick for him. Still, I'd rather keep him and get rid of Beasley.

Don't get me wrong...I like him, be he does nothing better than the guys we have. McDermott is similar in some ways, but a better version.

I think Beasley is here for special situations when we need an isolation player, but KP has become that person, but he was still brought here by the new administration, so I expect he is going to be kept.

the knicks are still looking to upgrade that position, and it has been well documented, im not saying anything that's far fetch. I actually like KUz, but it is what is is.
