The New York Knicks received a heavy dose of reality from the Indiana Pacers in the second round of the playoffs. Mike Woodson and his staff will have to make some changes heading into the 2013-14 season.
Woodson must determine what style of play will maximize his players' abilities and give them the best shot at defeating the elite teams in the Eastern Conference. He needs to decide on a position for a few of his key players and settle on a starting lineup.
Woodson must also figure out how to incorporate newcomers Metta World Peace and Andrea Bargnani into the rotation, while managing the minutes of his returning veterans. It remains to be seen which combinations will develop chemistry on the court.
The Knicks found diamonds in the rough during the past two training camps. But it's too early to tell which camp invitees will fill out the back end of the roster this season and what kind of impact they may have.
