Given their current cap situation, the New York Knicks have no choice but to hope the majority of their free agents stick with the team.
The Knicks already have $74 million on the books for next season and they are dependent on some goodwill from the likes of Chris Copeland and J.R Smith.

That being said, let’s play keep or cut and see if we can weed out any of the players that are set to enter free agency on July 1.
