Knicks Rumors: New York Shouldn't Make Any More Changes to Roster
The New York Knicks' offseason is over.
Well, for now.
According to Jared Zwerling of ESPN.com, the Knicks certainly aren't on the cusp of making any moves, but don't get too comfortable with the current roster (via Zwerling's Twitter):
Spoke to two agents about #Knicks further FA plans. One said the team is in no rush. Another said, "Knicks never do what you would assume."— Jared Zwerling (@JaredZwerling) August 16, 2012
Yes, James Dolan and Glen Grunwald are (understatement alert!) anything but predictable, but there's just nothing else to do with this roster.
For the first time in a while, for at least a while, Knicks fans can (and should) move forward knowing the roster won't change.
There are question marks surrounding the point guard position, but depth isn't one of them.
Dolan and company, in one of the most mysterious decisions of the offseason, decided to trade in the magic of Jeremy Lin in hope of Raymond Felton returning to his New York form of 2010-11.
Throw in Jason Kidd and Pablo Prigioni, the international Jason Kidd in terms of veteran status, and there's no way to improve the position right now.
Shooting guard is just as deep.
Iman Shumpert is still recovering from his ACL tear, but offensive stud J.R. Smith and defensive stud Ronnie Brewer will hold down the fort until he's back.
And the frontcourt is where the real talent resides.
Should the Knicks make any more moves this offseason?
Steve Novak, Marcus Camby and Kurt Thomas all provide depth with their different specialties.
The point here isn't to give you a recap of New York's roster. The point is to emphasize just how deep it is. When Shumpert returns, the Knicks are a team that could potentially go 12 players deep, depending on how Prigioni and Thomas play.
At the very least, 10-men deep.
While there still may be one or two hidden gems treading water in free agency, Knicks management doesn't need to worry about them. The current team is more than complete and no other acquisitions are necessary.
Instead, it's time to concentrate on the current squad. Find the best rotations and the best ways to make players gel with each other. At this point, that's more important than anything else.
For the first time in a long while, it's time to get comfortable with the current roster.
