Breaking Down What NY Knicks Offseason Moves Mean for Carmelo Anthony
USA TODAY Sports

The New York Knicks' offseason has had mixed reviews, but when you look closely, it's clear they're building a team that fits perfectly around Carmelo Anthony.

With only the mini mid-level and veteran's minimum contracts to spend, the front office had their work cut out, but for the second year in a row they've done a great job in catering to Melo's needs.

Last year it was all about bringing in a set of point guards capable of running an offense, and this year it's been about adding depth and building around the idea of playing Anthony in the post surrounded by Tyson Chandler and three players with three-point range.

Melo also wanted the team to add more scoring, but they simply didn't have the money to get him a bona fide second option. Instead, they added two offensive-minded role players who should contribute a fair amount and hopefully light a fire under J.R. Smith.

Let's break down each move in terms of how they fit with Melo and the team overall.
