They were waiting for the knicks to call back, but we ended taking denvers offer, looking for more scoring from the guard position

Thought Perry was higher on Payton, since he wasnt willing to give up a second rounder. Interesting.

The impending free agency lowers Payton's value. We have Mudiay, if we want, for two more years at about $5mil a season. Or we can deny his option an slough him off next season

Got it. Think it shows that Perry didnt get too sentimental about a player he drafted.

Mudiay is $4.2 next year and then restricted rookie contract year offer I think.

The restricted offer is for like $5.7 million, so I just averaged both years out. That's if want to keep him. I think he's movable next year if we decline to pick up his last year.

Was expecting us to move at least one of the vets to help balance the roster and get, ya'know, younger and more athletic. Sheesh. I guess we are going to be playing a **** ton of 3 guard line-ups.

Viva La 10 day contract!!! Bring on the scrubs to save us fans from snoozing through the rest of the season

So the knicks traded for another guard who can't shoot and hope he improves. Lol. Knicks still knicking it.

Mudiay is younger so he probably has a little more perceived upside and positional versatility. PLus he doesn't have to get paid this summer. We get next year with him at his current rate.
