"Chauncey Billups, with me (BASED HAHN) and Michael Kay Monday on ESPN Radio: "I think they did [make a mistake in amnestying him]. But to get what they got, I understand, because I love Tyson [Chandler]. I wish there was a way they could have gotten Tyson and kept me. We probably would have a championship by now.""

Earlier this week, Mike Woodson said that he would meet with GM Glen Grunwald after the Knicks' road trip to discuss the roster, which is not only banged up but also hurting for points.

While Amar'e Stoudemire and Rasheed Wallace are out for the rest of the regular season with a right knee debridement and fractured left foot, respectively, the team scored a season-low 63 points in a blowout loss to the Warriors on Monday night.

The Knicks' immediate need is in the frontcourt, but here's the problem: There are no good big men to sign. As one seasoned agent put it, "It's pretty much desolate." The dismal field includes Tony Battie, Josh Boone, Brian Cook, Dan Gadzuric, Troy Murphy, Ben Wallace, Hassan Whiteside and Sean Williams.

The most intriguing free agent is Henry Sims, who was recently released by the Hornets on a 10-day contract after playing for the D-League's Erie BayHawks. But a source close to the Knicks said that if the team released or bought out a player -- possibly James White as Woodson is too committed to Wallace -- they would likely not sign a big. That's especially because the Knicks don't want to spend time this season developing the rookie Sims. They're in veteran mode.

Instead, the source said, the Knicks would be interested in a younger, but experienced, backup point guard. That player would build on Raymond Felton's aggressive play in transition and half-court sets to start games. While Jason Kidd and Pablo Prigioni are wise floor generals, they simply don't have the consistent speed and quickness to get into the paint and make plays.

The Knicks sometimes lack offensive balance from their first to second unit, and without Stoudemire for the long haul, they're going to need more perimeter penetration to create more shot opportunities. Not to mention, Carmelo Anthony's right knee is still bothering him, so his teammates need to make things easier on the Knicks' star. The number of his routine isolation grind-outs must diminish.

The source said that point guard Delonte West makes the most sense for the Knicks. Also available is Sundiata Gaines, 26, who averaged 5.1 points, 2.2 a.ssists and one steal in 14 minutes per game last season for the Nets, but he's not regarded as highly in NBA circles. Another option could've been Jannero Pargo, but he's signing a 10-day deal with the Bobcats.

The 29-year-old West would be the best option at the one spot. Averaging 9.7 points, 3.6 a.ssists and 1.1 steals per game in his eight-year career, he can score and dish off pick-and-rolls, blow by defenders in the open court and finish, shoot from the outside and swarm his man all over the floor.

West has been absent from the league this season after getting suspended by the Mavericks in October for "conduct detrimental to the team." Since then, he had been acquired by a D-League team, but didn't play in any games. But the Knicks could present an easy adjustment for West who would be surrounded by comforting vets, and he knows Kidd well from Dallas last season. In fact, when West would play backup point, Kidd would occasionally be his running mate, knocking down 3-pointers.

Could that two-man lineup carry over well to the Knicks?

HOWARD BECK

PORTLAND, Ore. — Carmelo Anthony was back in New York on Thursday, confronting a long needle and a cranky knee that has undermined a once-glorious Knicks season.

Anthony had fluid drained from the back of his right knee Thursday afternoon, after spending more than three weeks f!ghting stiffness and soreness while his game deteriorated. He is expected to rejoin the slumping Knicks on Friday in Los Angeles and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Clippers.

The Knicks played the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday night without their three top stars, all because of knee injuries. Amar’e Stoudemire has been lost for six weeks after having surgery. Tyson Chandler sat out after bruising his left knee Wednesday. He is day to day.

There was some good news out of New York, however.

Doctors found no structural damage to Anthony’s knee. Nor was the fluid buildup caused by an arthritic condition. The team described the problem as simply a “soft-tissue fluid collection” in the back of the knee.

Coach Mike Woodson said in a radio interview Thursday that he was worried about Anthony’s knee, but he sounded more optimistic after speaking to Anthony, following the procedure.

“He felt pretty good about it,” Woodson said. “So I feel good.”

Anthony has missed four games, and parts of two others, this month because of the knee. By his own account, the knee has been an issue for at least three weeks, although Anthony said nothing publicly until March 4, after asking out of a game in Cleveland. A magnetic resonance imaging test taken days before that game showed no damage.

Rather than having the knee drained immediately, Anthony chose rest, taking three games off before returning to the lineup Monday against the Golden State Warriors. He played poorly, going 4 for 15 in a 92-63 loss.

Then Anthony hit his low point Wednesday night, playing for the first time in Denver since forcing the Nuggets to trade him two years ago. He missed 9 of 12 shots and asked out of the game early in the third quarter, with the Knicks trailing by 26 points. He announced afterward that he would return to New York to have the knee drained.

That, of course, raised the question of whether Anthony should have pursued this remedy days or weeks ago.

“We all know our own bodies,” Woodson said. “And if he thought he could play without getting it drained, then that was the route that he chose to take.”

Woodson added, “He’s going to be fine.”

Fluid buildup is generally caused by irritation, although the Knicks have not explained what caused the irritation in Anthony’s case. Possible causes include sprains, cartilage damage, a meniscal tear or a partial ligament tear, said Dr. James Gladstone, the co-chief of sports medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

“It could be incredibly minor, too,” said Gladstone, who has not examined Anthony and was speaking generally. The mere presence of fluid “is not alarming,” nor is it necessarily indicative of arthritis, he said.

“They drain it because it’s uncomfortable and let it settle down for a few days,” Gladstone said.

LOS ANGELES — The Knicks aren’t that desperate yet, but will be one of the teams monitoring the progress of mercurial point guard Delonte West, expected to make his D-League debut tonight when the Texas Legends host the Santa Cruz Warriors.

West is a super talent and super headache, but, at 29, a relative pup by Knicks standards. He hasn’t played all season but was effective last year with Dallas. The Knicks haven’t been thrilled with their point-guard play since Christmas, with Raymond Felton and Jason Kidd falling back to Earth, Iman Shumpert not being a reliable scorer and playmaking rookie Pablo Prigioni not enough of an offensive threat.

The Knicks don’t have a roster spot and rehabbing Rasheed Wallace is on the West Coast trip for “moral support,’’ coach Mike Woodson said. Woodson acknowledged he will sit down with general manager Glen Grunwald after the trip to explore options. Wallace would have to be cut to open a roster spot.

Wallace (foot surgery) could be back for the second round of the playoffs, but seems like a longshot. The Knicks probably won’t spring for a big-man signing unless Marcus Camby’s foot gives out again. Camby looked active in Portland Thursday.

The Knicks’ options are slim since they cannot sign a player waived after March 1 to be on the playoff roster. The top D-League centers include Hilton Armstrong, Vernon Macklin, Hassan Whiteside, Keith Benson, and Solomon Alabi.

* Former Knicks center Timofey Mozgov played nine garbage-time minutes in Denver on Wednesday. The young 7-foot-1 Russian has been out of the Nuggets’ rotation and becomes a restricted free agent July 1. The Knicks have interest and inquired about Mozgov at the trade deadline. But they have little flexibility with their $3.1 million mini mid-level and are unable to make a sign-and-trade under the new rules.

“We got the option to choose a team where I can play,’’ Mozgov told The Post. “I can’t say [Nuggets coach] George [Karl] is bad. Of course it’s not a good feeling when you don’t play, but I’m still part of the team. New York is a good city, no question, but there are 30 teams.’’

* Kenyon Martin signed yesterday for the rest of the season after the second of his 10-day contracts expired Thursday night. The increasingly impressive Martin left in the final minutes in Thursday’s game with a bruised left shin but was said to be OK. Martin, who played for the Clippers last season, could start against his former team tomorrow.

LOS ANGELES — J.R. Smith sounded the alarm yesterday in Los Angeles after the Knicks fell to 0-4 on their nightmarish West Coast trip, after Lob City was too much for Limp City.

The Knicks were undermanned again without their “Trio Grande’’ frontcourt and could be without them again tonight in the trip’s finale. Carmelo Anthony sat in the locker room during the game getting treatment, and said as he walked to the bus: “Not going to talk today.’’

It is highly unlikely Anthony plays tonight, though Tyson Chandler’s chances are better.

It doesn’t matter to Smith, now the voice of the locker room with Anthony rehabbing from his knee drainage, Chandler battling a strained muscle in his neck and bruised left knee and Amar’e Stoudemire home rehabbing his surgically repaired left knee.

Smith, who has been playing through a sore left knee, questioned the team’s “heart’’ earlier in the trip and warned the club may be facing an early playoff exit if it doesn’t get with it.

“I’m fine [physically],’’ Smith said. “It’s just starting to take a toll on me mentally. Losing like this, knowing the type of team we were at the beginning of the year, we have to keep f!ghting through it.”

The Knicks (38-26) were 18-5 in mid-December. They are now one game below .500 since.

“I believe we can [get back to that],’’ Smith said. “We don’t have a choice. Either keep playing like this and have an early exit in the playoffs or start f!ghting. We need some help. We have to help each other on the offensive and defensive end. We can’t rely on our offense.”

The Knicks battled with heart for the first half and even came on in the fourth quarter to cut it briefly to nine. But they didn’t have the firepower to keep it up as the athletic Clippers opened a 19-point lead in the third.

“There are no moral victories here,’’ Smith said.

Smith had a bad shooting night (4 of 20), but he drove the ball hard and got to the line to make 8 of 9 free throws and finish with 17 points. The Knicks shot 35.8 percent overall.

“We couldn’t put the ball in the ocean,’’ Smith said.

Coach Mike Woodson questioned the team’s “shot selection” but that was nitpicking.

The Knicks have lost in double digits in all four games, outscored by a total of 80 points. At least the Knicks beat Utah at the Garden before leaving for this trip. However, the Jazz are coming off a big win against mighty Memphis. The Knicks haven’t won in Utah since 2005.

“Whether it is or it isn’t [with Anthony and Chandler tomorrow], we have to come out and f!ght and try to get a ‘W.’ We have to at least try to get one and go home feeling good about ourselves a little bit,” Woodson said. “After this 0-4, we have to find a way to get one win on the road trip.’’

Woodson said he “really didn’t know’’ whether Anthony or Chandler would play tonight and that means a ragtag starting frontcourt of Kurt Thomas, Kenyon Martin and Chris Copeland could go for the third straight game.

“We’re playing with guys we’re not accustomed to playing with,’’ Smith said. “We knew where guys would be in certain spots. You get thrown in there with some people that haven’t been playing all that much and we haven’t had time to practice, so we got to figure it out.’’

The Clippers’ highlight play of the day came in the third quarter. On the break, starting point guard Paul found Griffin with a high alley-oop pass over Copeland that Griffin thundered violently through the hoop with his right arm. Lob City indeed.

“They are a load,’’ Woodson said. “Jordan and Blake are big-time loads on that block.’’

Point guard Raymond Felton had 16 points and nine rebounds in a solid outing. Paul scored 20 points with eight a.ssists, and Griffin had 12 points and 12 boards and a series of ferocious slams.

For the second straight game, the Knicks started the ragtag frontcourt of 40-year-old Thomas, Martin and Copeland. Thomas and Martin combined to score six points.

“I thought we competed, these guys have pride,’’ said Martin. “This team is not made of one or two guys. But we have to stop the bleeding before we get back to New York.’’

The Knicks took a 8-0 and 13-7 leads and those were the highlights. The super acrobatic center Jordan gave the Clippers their first lead at 16-15 on a breakaway windmill dunk

The irony is the Clippers didn’t play all that sharp, were sloppy and still won handily. “We wanted them to be full throttle with Carmelo and Tyson just for the competition of it,’’ ex-Knick Chauncey Billups said. “But when they’re not playing, it’s kind of human nature to have a subconscious letdown, but you have to find a way to f!ght through it.’’

"Quote of the Day -- JR Smith: "We've got to figure out how to win some games without that $200 million sitting on the bench.

It was a reference to the team's three highest-paid -- and, naturally, most important -- players: Amar'e Stoudemire ($99.7 million contract), Carmelo Anthony ($65 million extension) and Tyson Chandler ($58 million contract).

Smith is actually off a few million, as the trio represents $223 million in total Knicks contracts. This season, they make up $53,002,987 in payroll.

More importantly is the bang-for-the-buck: the three lead the team in PER (Player Efficiency Rating): Melo (22.6), Amar'e (21.9) and Tyson (19.3).

And Chandler (8.9) and Anthony (6.4) lead the team in Win Shares, which calculates the number of wins attributed to the player. The Knicks are one of four teams (Heat, Thunder and Clippers) with two players in the top 10 for Win Shares.

Try removing that from any NBA team and see what you get."
