As the lockout ends, the free agent rumors begin.
Let’s get the Chris Paul rumor out of the way first. I’m not going to spend any time talking about this, since I don’t think anyone thinks bringing CP3 to the Knicks isn’t in either of their best interests. Too many articles have already been written about Paul to the Knicks since the rumor of his agent telling Hornets’ management Paul wants out and to the Knicks broke this afternoon.
With or without Paul, the Knicks will need to add many complimentary pieces this offseason if they want to make a serious title run next year. They are in desperate need of a center who will allow Amar’e to play the majority of his minutes at PF, where he is most effective. They also can really use another guard because I know Landry Fields was excellent all season last year, but come playoff time he really didn’t show up at all.
Here are my thoughts on the rumors surrounding the Knicks so far.
