If a Knicks roster spot opens up this week with either Cuttino Mobley's retirement or the release of Stephon Marbury, president Donnie Walsh said the Knicks have two trade exceptions to use to obtain a shooting guard through a deal. The Knicks can trade the exception to another team for a player making the salary of what the trade exception is worth. It is believed the exception is in the $1 million range, which means the player would have to be making in the minimum-wage vicinity. Nevertheless, it gives the Knicks more options than signing a D-League shooting guard. On Dec. 15, teams can trade the rookie contracts of the players they drafted last summer. If a team is looking to shed one of its second-round picks or late first rounders, the Knicks would be in position to get that player. -- NY Post

feel kinda bad for Mobley, yeah good we get a roster spot for a younger, more athletic replacement (ala Ewing Jr. most likely) but still...wonder if they'll offer him some kind of job

While banished from the Knicks, Stephon Marbury was pursued relentlessly by a pair of alleged Swiss bankers claiming to have connections to Real Madrid. Marbury, after discovering their intricate plot was a hoax, was considering turning over information to law-enforcement officials about the contact. The alleged investors, who identified themselves to The Post through phone calls and e-mails as working for Union Bank Suisse, gave their names and claimed they were trying to sign him to a multi-million dollar sponsorship contract that can be parlayed into a deal with the Real Madrid basketball club. Marbury said he returned calls and e-mails from the investors Saturday. "They're phonies, it's a hoax," said Marbury. ... Meanwhile, a representative of the alleged investors have called The Post, The a.ssociated Press and the The New York Times dozens of times over the past five days to promote their plan of Marbury playing for Real Madrid with a marketing deal worth 12 million Euros.-- NY Daily News

The Knicks have other options, such as utilizing a trade exception for up to $1.4 million that they acquired in the offseason trade of Renaldo Balkman to Denver for a second-round pick. Portland guard Sergio Rodriguez ($1 million) asked for a trade earlier this season, but the Trail Blazers are giving strong indications to inquiring teams that they are considering only trades that upgrade the team's talent. -- Newsday

With a strict focus on maintaining salary-cap space in 2010, there aren't many viable options out there for Donnie Walsh to consider right now, other than Jerry Stackhouse, who is very much available. The Dallas Mavericks reportedly have given the disgruntled veteran permission to seek trade scenarios, and the Knicks - who are owned by Cablevision, which also owns Newsday - likely would offer Malik Rose's expiring contract for Stackhouse, who will make $7 million this season. But a league source indicated that with Stackhouse out with a heel injury, the Mavericks are in no hurry to make a move and likely will continue to field offers. -- Newsday

i did say Stackhouse would be a wildcard this year, his expiring contract is what we want, i just thought Curry would have been involved since that's what they wanted

Patrick Ewing Jr. is joining the Knicks' D-League affiliate in Reno, and is expected to sign with the NBA team once the futures of Cuttino Mobley and Stephon Marbury are decided.

Mobley's possible retirement because of heart issues would create a roster spot for Ewing, who became an instant fan favorite during the preseason prior to his release.

Ewing Jr. is free to sign with any team, but he would prefer to play with the club that his father led to two NBA Finals in the 1990s.

Some NBA general managers are looking ahead to 2010 and speculating that the Knicks have already "locked up" both LeBron James and Chris Bosh.

"It's a total setup," said one general manager about James and Bosh joining forces in New York. By trading Zach Randolph and Jamal Crawford, the Knicks have cleared substantial cap room for the summer of 2010, perhaps enough to offer two maximum contracts.

NBA general managers are notorious conspiracy theorists. But Bosh himself is taking all the talk in stride.

"You can't help but look at it," Bosh said. "But I'm the type of person where I don't get too far ahead of myself. If I get too far ahead of myself and start worrying about the future, I won't do what's best right now."

About the possibility of landing on the same team as James, Bosh said "playing together would be kind of surreal."

Al Harrington is enjoying his success with the Knicks and wants to be stay on with the club beyond the 2009-10 season if they sign LeBron James or any of the other members of the 2010 free agent class.

"It's impossible to play the game with only two players," he says. "They're going to need some other guys and I want to be one of those guys. The only thing I can do is control what I can control. We've got two seasons to show what we can do. It's a long time. It's amazing that people can talk about something that far ahead. I've never seen anything like that before in my life.''

The Knicks are planning to waive Mobley today to open up a much-needed roster spot. Signing Patrick Ewing Jr. is an option, but not the only one. Walsh may wait to see if he can use one of his trade exceptions to land a shooting guard or make a 2-for-1 trade. Ewing is a small forward. Walsh could take a week before deciding. -- NY Post

Cuttino Mobley, a Knick less than three weeks who never played a minute for the team, has decided to retire because of signs he has a potentially life-threatening heart disease, according to three people familiar with the situation. Mobley, a 12-year veteran with a career 16-point scoring average, will announce his retirement at a press conference today. The 33-year-old, who played most of his career with Houston and the Clippers, met with Knick president Donnie Walsh yesterday and informed him of his decision. After reviewing a battery of heart tests across the past two weeks, Mobley has been convinced he has symptoms for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, the disease that k!lled Hank Gathers and Reggie Lewis. -- NY Post

can u imagine how good this trade would have been if we actually had a HEALTHY Mobley???.....he would have fit so well into this offense...

Walsh looks even more like a genius now that they will be able to signoff on a medical retirement....they free up an extra roster spot, save the money owed to Mobley in '09 (i believe his deal is insured) and they gain a "Trade Exemption" that can be used to fill his roster spot



although i really was interested to see how the pus*y Cat could have played with this squad

New York Knicks guard Cuttino Mobley has informed the team that he will retire from professional basketball following extensive medical evaluations. It has been determined that Mobley has a heart condition known as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy that has progressed to the point where he can no longer play. “The specialists I have seen made it clear that my heart condition has gotten worse, and I cannot continue to play professional basketball without putting my health and life in serious danger,” Mobley said. “As much as I want to keep playing in the NBA, I have no choice but to follow the advice of my doctors and step away from the League. I have had the privilege of playing in the NBA for 11 years, but my health and family must come first, and it is time to move on to the next stage in my life. “This has definitely been a shocking situation for me, but I want my fans, friends and loved ones to know that I will be fine. My career has been a blessing and I am grateful to have had this experience.”

fu*k it since nobody talking about these other possibilities guess i'll post this up as well...

With Nate Robinson due back from injury Saturday, Donnie Walsh is in no hurry to fill the roster spot left vacant by the retirement of Cuttino Mobley.

The Knicks could be interested in Jannero Pargo or Carlos Delfino, both of whom are currently playing in Russia. The team could also explore trades involving Sacramento's Quincy Douby or Portland's Sergio Rodriguez.

Patrick Ewing Jr. has officially has signed with the D-League and seems to be in the Knicks' short-term plans. But the team's more immediate need is at guard and Ewing Jr. most likely will take the roster spot that will open when Stephon Marbury is bought out and released.
