The New York Knicks aren't going to completely overhaul their roster this offseason, but a few tweaks here and there can make a big difference heading into next season.
Flexibility is an issue, but after re-signing some of their own players, the Knicks will be able to spend the taxpayers' mid-level exception and give out unlimited minimum-salary contracts.
Essentially, what that means is that one player can be signed for a maximum of $3 million, and then the roster will be filled out with minimum players. Alternatively, the mid-level could be split to help pay a returning free agent such as Chris Copeland.
In all likelihood, New York will bring back Copeland, J.R. Smith and Kenyon Martin, which will leave them with four places left before they reach the maximum of 15 players.
The Knicks have the 24th overall pick in the draft, and since they aren't allowed to trade it away, they'll have a rookie taking up one of those last spots.
With that in mind, these are the best available fits for New York this offseason. The team won't be able to sign them all, but bringing in two or three of them is definitely a possibility.
