Changes needed to be made for the New York Knicks after they managed to win just one playoff game last season. Built around the trio of Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler, the Knicks' main focus this offseason was fixing smaller needs without overspending.
Jason Kidd and Marcus Camby will help to strengthen the Knicks bench and give New York some veteran leadership. The re-signing of gunner J.R. Smith and three-point specialist Steve Novak means the Knicks will continue to have one of the best offensive second units.
The biggest move was trading for Raymond Felton, because it meant the end of Jeremy Lin in New York. While failing to match the Rockets' offer may have not been the smartest move from a marketing standpoint, will it translate to more wins for New York?
While the majority of these moves will ultimately help the Knicks reach the playoffs for the third year in a row, it’ll be up to the Big Three to get them deep into the postseason.
