5 Things NY Knicks Must Figure out Before Start of 2014-15 Season

Coming off a season in which the New York Knicks missed the playoffs in a weak Eastern Conference with a payroll exceeding $90 million, change in the organizational culture was necessary. 

It turned out to be swift as well. 

Eleven-time champion Phil Jackson was hired as team president to instill his winning philosophies in an organization that has undervalued draft picks and routinely thrown money at overpriced free agents. 

His first order of business was hiring Derek Fisher, a bright Jackson protege, to take the head coaching reins from Mike Woodson.

After a whirlwind summer of being courted from coast to coast, Carmelo Anthony returned to the orange and blue on a five-year, $124 million deal.

He turned down a better supporting cast with the Chicago Bulls and the bright lights of Los Angeles, ultimately deciding to give Jackson and Fisher a shot at building a winner around him in New York. Together, they will guide the Knicks toward what they hope is a championship future. 

There are still issues to iron out and decisions to be made for the disappointing Knicks. They are very much a team in transition after finishing last season 37-45.  Here are five things they must figure out before the 2014-15 season tips off.
