Early Predictions for the New York Knicks' Starting Lineup

Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith may join Carmelo Anthony in the Knicks' starting lineup.

New York Knicks first-year head coach Derek Fisher will have some difficult personnel decisions to make for the 2014-15 season, beginning with his starting lineup. 

Fisher is faced with the challenge of implementing a new offense and developing young talent like Tim Hardaway Jr., Shane Larkin and Cleanthony Early, all while competing for a playoff spot. His job is complicated by an imbalanced roster with a glut of wing players and lack of a two-way big man.

The first step for Fisher is to determine where to play Carmelo Anthony. The star forward spent most of his career at the 3 spot, though he and the Knicks played their best over the past two seasons with him at the 4.

The starting lineup could be a fluid situation, with Fisher experimenting with different combinations as the season progresses. Some of the younger players in particular may see their roles change as they continue to develop.
