What’s New – Jul. 10, 2018

I’VE LOVED NOAH SINCE HIS COLLEGIATE DAYS AT FLORIDA.  I THINK AT THIS POINT THE BEST THING WOULD BE FOR THE KNICKS AND NOAH TO PART WAYS AND ALLOW HIM TO CONTINUE THE TWILIGHT OF HIS CAREER ON A CONTENDER.   THIBS IN MINNEY HAS BEEN LOOKING FOR A MENTOR FOR KARL TOWNS AND WE KNOW ALL THE OLD BULLS HAVE A GREAT RELATIONSHIP.  MAYBE HAVING NOAH IN MINNEY SMOOTHS THINGS OVER WITH JIMMY BUTLER AND THE ORGANIZATION.     MINNEY STILL HAVE A FEW BUCKS LEFT UNDER A HARD CAP AND CAN OFFSET SOME OF THE BUYOUT MONEY.  STRETCHING NOAH NOW VS. A YEAR FROM NOW HAS A NEGLIGIBLE FINANCIAL DIFFERENCE.    BUT WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF MITCHELL ROBINSON AND WHERE WE ARE AS A TEAM I FEEL IT’S BEST FOR BOTH TO PART WAYS.  IT IS WHAT IT IS..

KNICKS SHOULD ALSO PART WAYS WITH COURTNEY LEE.  SACRAMENTO JUST OFFERED ZACH LAVINE 20 MIL A YEAR FOR 4 YEARS.   THAT TELLS ME THEY ARE NOT CONVINCED BUDDY HIELD IS THE ANSWER.   THE KINGS WANT TO TRY AND COMPETE THIS YEAR BECAUSE THEY DONT HAVE A FIRST ROUND PICK  AND IF THEY NEED HELP AT THE SHOOTING GUARD COURTNEY LEE WOULD BE A GREAT SHORT TERM ADDITION FOR THEM.   KNICKS AND KINGS CANT MAKE A TRADE UNTIL JULY 15TH BECAUSE OF THE SCOTT PERRY COMPENSATION TRADE.   CURRENT KINGS HEAD COACH DAVE JOERGER WAS IN MEMPHIS WHEN THE GRIZZ TRADED FOR COURTNEY LEE IN 2013 .. LEE STARTED 77 GAMES FOR JOERGER IN 2014 .. LEE FOR SHUMP OR ZBO MAKES A LOT OF SENSE SINCE THE KNICKS WILL BE BUYING OUT WHOMEVER THEY GET BACK DUE TO THE ROSTER CRUNCH OF GUARANTEED DEALS..
