NY Knicks' Biggest Winners and Losers of the 2014 Offseason

Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher intend to bring a different brand of basketball to New York.

Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks had an active offseason, hiring a new coaching staff—led by Jackson's protege, Derek Fisherand revamping the roster. Some Knicks will benefit from a new coaching philosophy and the changes in personnel, while others will have diminished roles. 

Fisher is expected to implement the triangle offense that he and Jackson won five championships with in Los Angeles. The triangle favors certain skill sets and generally features two traditional big men, which is atypical in today's NBA.

New York is three deep at shooting guard and point guard, and Fisher has plenty of flexibility at power forward and center after the acquisitions of Jason Smith, Samuel Dalembert and Quincy Acy, to go along with returning big men Amar'e Stoudemire, Andrea Bargnani and Cole Aldrich.

The first-year head coach could use a committee at the 4 and 5, though regardless of how he juggles the lineup, there will be accomplished veterans and promising youngsters who find themselves glued to the bench.
