Chandler soaring in for two.
It is well known that Wilson Chandler was liked by the coaching staff, his teammates and the fans. His versatility brought a lot to this team, whether he was our sixth man or was thrown into the starting line up. He could play anywhere from the two to the four spot, guarding players of all different sizes and styles.
As I mentioned on the first slide, adding Wilson Chandler would alleviate a few key problems: perimeter defense, bench scoring and rebounding.
Wilson Chandler was playing great defense for our team and was a big reason why the Knicks were the No. 1 shot blocking team in the league for a large part of the season. His smart defense coupled with his impressive athleticism make him a great player on that end of the floor.
Another area that he would greatly help in is scoring off the bench. Outside of our Big Three, no one on this Knicks squad can consistently create their own shot. Toney Douglas can on occasion, but when his jump shot isn't falling, he looks completely lost in the offense.
Wilson would bring a consistent scorer who can create his own shot for our team every single night.
The final area that Chandler would help in is rebounding. The Knicks are known around the league for their weak rebounding, but Chandler would help greatly. He is one of the best rebounding small forwards and will only improve since he is still at a young age. He, along with Carmelo Anthony, would produce one of the best rebounding small forward duos in the league.
Chandler's presence would really assist our team in these areas and could aid us in becoming one of the top three teams in the Eastern Conference.
