The New York Knicks are in the rare position of being a team that's expected to play deep into the postseason but still must use the preseason to get a feel for the team as a whole.
With so many new faces in key roles this year—Metta World Peace, Andrea Bargnani and Beno Udrih, to name a few—the team is drastically different from the second-seeded Knicks team of 2012-13.
Through Week 1, a few Knicks have risen to recognition, while some have done everything in their power to write themselves off in just two games.
The team is still desperate for a reserve center behind Tyson Chandler, and another guard to improve the perimeter defense wouldn't hurt, either. Coach Mike Woodson is able to get a look at the league-maximum 20 players on New York's roster through camp, so there's certainly no shortage of directions to go with the 15th roster slot.
