Despite limited cap space, the New York Knicks have had a very productive offseason. They managed to re-sign Pablo Prigioni, J.R. Smith and Kenyon Martin and also acquired the services of Andrea Bargnani, Metta World Peace, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Beno Udrih, to name a few.
While the Knicks have made the necessary moves to become a deeper team and keep up with the Brooklyn Nets and Indiana Pacers, their offseason checklist is not yet complete. New York still has one roster spot open and needs to decide who to bring on board to complete their roster.
After that, Mike Woodson has the tough assignment of developing a starting lineup and establishing a rotation. New York has one of the deepest teams in the league (we'll get to that later), so Woodson will have several options when it comes to determining who to play and when to play them.
The Knicks' most important remaining task of the offseason is to remain healthy. Besides J.R. Smith, just about every player on the roster will enter training camp with a clean bill of health, including Tyson Chandler and Amar'e Stoudemire.
While preseason games do not have much meaning, they will be important for New York to continue to develop the chemistry that helped lead them to the second round of the playoffs last season. These games will give Mike Woodson the opportunity to fiddle with his rotation and will give the second unit an opportunity to jell.
That being said, let's get started by going over the Knicks current roster.
