One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
That is, as long as the second man is willing to do some deep dumpster diving.
This summer, the Knicks will be that second man. According to HoopsHype, the New York Knicks have an estimated 2013-14 team salary of $76 million. Not bad, until you realize that the estimated NBA salary cap will land around $60 million with the tax line sitting at $70 million. Eeek.
Basically, the New York Knicks are already painting the town red.
If the Knicks are going to get better, it’s time for them to search the bargain bin for those special somethings that were once showcase material.
Who’s out there for the Knicks to nab on the cheap? Who can make this squad good enough to challenge Indiana and Miami for East Coast supremacy? Let’s do a preliminary breeze through and check out some guys who can flash some substance and crack next season’s Knicks roster.
