When you're the Knicks and picking sixth in a top-heavy freshman draft, and your isolated a.sset (David Lee) and the slot weren't ample inducement (assuming another obscene contract was out of the question) to move up to harvest Derrick Rose, O.J. Mayo or Kevin Love, the inevitable conclusion is singling out an unfinished product

Danilo Gallinari, we have since learned, is flawed (young, athletically and defensively challenged, stiff-legged making his move to paydirt) in certain areas!

You don't say!

Well, guess what: the Italian Scallion also happens to be gifted (tough, mature far beyond his 19 years, clever passer, impressive feel for the flow, and a good — not great — 3-point shooter) in other areas. Just as each and every player chosen afterward (before, too) is defective and accomplished one way or multiple others.

Otherwise, 7-footer Brook Lopez would have been gobbled up at No. 4 by the center-less Sonics, as projected by many experts, instead of falling into the (safety) Nets six stories below.

Otherwise, Jerryd Bayless would have been snatched from the Green Room by the Clippers, who crave a pure playmaker yet opted for shooting guard Eric Gordon at No. 7, instead of dropping four places to the Pacers.

Would Joe Alexander, elatedly embraced by the Bucks at No. 8, have been a more astute alternative? Donnie Walsh was pulled in both directions. Had Gallinari been gone, the 6-8 marksman would have been targeted. NYAC workout maharishi Milton Lee a.ssertively predicts Alexander will prove to be the third-best player (Rose and Michael Beasley) in the '08 draft five seasons from now.

Fine, but what about this coming season? At this moment, is Alexander (or Bayless) any more prepared than Gallinari to help turn around the NudKnicks?

Alexander's encounters against stiff comp got a late start. Gallinari was bred by a pro to be a pro and carried a pro outfit in Milan. I'm just wondering — would Knicks fans be comforted to know his father played defiant defense as a D'Antoni teammate and his mother was a 200-meter sprinter?

Yes, the whole, undiscovered package appears to be there. Gallinari simply needs time and sound coaching so he can grow into his genes. Milan's coaching changes stunted that growth to some extent, I'm told. At the same time, it pushed him to improvisational heights. No plays were run for Gallinari, so he was forced to get shots on his own. Some were pretty objectionable.

Who says Gallinari doesn't fit in perfectly with the Knicks?

Sarcasm aside, it's unfair that a teenager from Italy must measure up to the expectations tied to being Walsh's first rebuilding block. Please don't tell Gallinari about the many "certified" saviors the franchise imported over the years that went limp under that pressure.

The good news is, Walsh has four months to lessen that burden by upgrading the roster enough to get D'Antoni's feted run-'n-stun system into second or third gear.

That's also the bad news. Walsh probably doesn't have enough time left on his three-year contract to concoct a scheme to unload Zach Randolph or Eddy Curry. His one shot is to package Lee, whose inability to hit 3-pointers makes him expendable.

Clearly, Lee is useless to the Knicks. He does all the things that hardly matter to a bad team, but are the difference between winning and losing on good team.

Where was I? Oh, yeah, why have the Suns been semi-superior? Steve Nash's genius, first and foremost. He gets teammates open shots and knows when to get his for the good of the team.

Stephon Marbury may be given one last chance to tiptoe that tightrope. Alas, it doesn't matter how well Gallinari shoots the ball from afar if someone doesn't get him the ball.

In the inconceivable event Marbury fails to deliver, it's on Walsh to lease a downscaled version of Nash without compromising cap flexibility (a term not a.ssociated with the Knicks since Dave Checketts' rookie debut) when LeBron, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh become eligible free agents in 2010.

Beno Udrih has been prioritized. Problem is, the Gail Goodrich clone, by way of Slovenia and presently Sacramento, will command far more than the two-year, $11.5M mid-level exception Walsh has to entice.

Meaning Marbury is The Man! The Knicks haven't been able to thrive with him but they can't survive without him.

Chris Duhon coming to the city that never sleeps seems like a risky proposition, but apparently it is one that the Knicks are willing to take. Duhon is mulling a two-year contract worth approximately $7 million to join the Knicks. The club is also offering Duhon a starting position, which is further evidence that incumbent point guard Stephon Marbury will not be back next season. Duhon, a free agent who has spent his entire four-year career in Chicago, met with Magic officials on Wednesday. Orlando would not guarantee Duhon a starting job, but by signing with the Magic, Duhon would get the chance to play with Dwight Howard and join a contender. Orlando could also offer him a three- to five-year contract. The hope is that Duhon makes a decision sometime either today or Friday, which would allow the Knicks to focus their attention elsewhere if he goes to Orlando. One possibility is Magic free agent Carlos Arroyo, who would fit D'Antoni's up-tempo style. -- NY Daily News

can't wait for 2k9, so i can get Birdman Andersen and D. Miles for like 2 cents each....should give atleast Birdman a tryout, especially if they move Randolph, Curry or Lee (2 out of the 3)...could get alot of offensive bounds for us if he healthy under Mike D's system

Chris Mullin intends to re-sign Monta Ellis but the Cavs and Heat are pursuing potential sign-and-trades to acquire Ellis.

Alan Hahn of Newsday also cites a person close to Ellis saying that the budding star "would be very interested in the Knicks" and especially playing for Mike D'Antoni.

The Knicks are monitoring the situation but won't make a formal move unless Mullin signals that he's ready to talk about parting with Ellis. Donnie Walsh and Mullin have a close personal relationship.

unfortunately it'll neva happen....

i think we better off wit just keeping all these clowns....basically setting us up to take our chances in the lottery AGAIN next year...maybe we'll be able to land a Rubio/Jenninga/Mullens/Derozan with an extra year shaved off some of these contracts it might not be as diffucult to rid ourselves of the Zachass's and Jefferies'

Chris Duhon verbally agreed to a deal with the New York Knicks on Friday, the point guard and his agent told The Sporting News.

"I am just excited, I am ready to get to work for the Knicks," said Duhon, the former Duke player who averaged 6.9 points and 4.5 a.ssists in four seasons for Chicago. "It's a big stage, playing in New York. It's something every player in the NBA wants."

Duhon's agent, Kevin Bradbury, told The Sporting News that he couldn't comment on terms of the deal, but the magazine cited an unidentified source in its Web site report as saying Duhon will get a two-year deal starting at the full mid-level exception. The mid-level exception will be announced July 9, when contracts can officially be signed.

"Chris could have shopped himself around more, but in the end, he wanted a fit where he felt comfortable and he knew what kind of opportunity he would be getting," Bradbury said. "He wasn't worried about trying to find more money on the market or anything like that. He wanted the right situation, and this just felt like the right situation."

the good news is that our summer league begins in 10 days....hopefully Duhon decides to play so he can play with some of the guys already on the roster and hopefully if we do make moves, it'll be in time for them to possibly be on the roster too (depending on who the person is of course)

Normally vets do not play in summer league that have more than 3 plus years. Summer league is normally for rookies or D-league players looking for a spot. However, being that Duhon is coming off the bench he might want to get to know the second team players. I would rather Duhon work on his jumpshot which is pretty bad rather than with players in summer league. Duhon use to miss wide open midrange shots when he played on the Bulls. His target this summer should be working on his jump shot and staying away for getting drunk.

Curry should go to loss some weight, Curry should play every summer league, even @ Rucker Park, too.

and NATE Robinson, goes because he still don't know how to be a PG or defend the perimeter. :banghead:

Good point. There were also other reports that Curry might not be in summer league. So I guess we have to see. Summer starts for the Knicks July 14th.


Duhon's game is like Howard Eisley without the jumpshot.

I thought Nate did a good job last year. Remember Nate is always asked to be that scorer off the bench. Also it's hard to get a.ssists when you have Balkman, Jeffries, Malik Rose, and Mardy Collins running with you off the bench. Also with no shotblockers on this team it will be hard for any guard to play defense.
