The 2014 offseason for the New York Knicks should be a critical one for the franchise's future.
With multiple decisions to make in both personnel and staff, this is where the Knicks could really forge a direction and turn things around. Hiring Phil Jackson as team president was a good first step, but there is still plenty of work to do in order to create a winning culture.
The beauty of the offseason is that it will allow New York to make some badly needed changes, one way or another. With Carmelo Anthony headed for free agency, the Knicks could look completely different next season, even if Anthony does decide to take the most money available to him and re-sign with the team.
The following is a list of the biggest needs the Knicks need to address this offseason to make it back to the playoffs and restore the glory of a proud franchise.
