Final Offseason Grade for the New York Knicks
Mark L. Baer-US PRESSWIRE
Steve Novak may just be the Knicks' best signing this offseason.

The New York Knicks' most recent offseason was unpredictable to say the least. The Glen Grunwald and Mike Woodson administration made it clear that they're looking to shift the organization in a brand new direction, with not-so-brand-new players. 

Only six men from last year's Knicks squad will be returning for the 2012-13 campaign. The team will be much more seasoned, though, thanks to the additions of vets Jason Kidd, Marcus Camby, Kurt Thomas, Rasheed Wallace and others. 

In doing so, they were forced to shed some of their young talent that propelled them to the playoffs in 2011-12. The most polarizing subtraction was Jeremy Lin, after a season that earned him a $25 million contract offer from the Houston Rockets—one the Knicks weren't willing to match.

It was as busy a summer as the Knicks have had since their 2010 offseason pursuit of LeBron James. The team's moves certainly raised some eyebrows, but may have ultimately placed them in a much better position this season. Let's go though each significant roster change New York underwent this summer.
