Archie to the Suns it looks like but doesn't matter, don't think the Knicks will pick another guard if they trade for another pick

I remember when Woodson put him in during that pacer series, he pop a three from deep straight off the bench. Woodson should've put him in rotation for that series.

im not mad at him being a spot up shooter. if he could add a couple moves off the dribble then thats all gravy. the problem is we don't have a post player that can spread the floor. if stat could stay healthy and can learn to play in the post(as well as chandler), kick on the double, novack is water. he's a shooter with size thats not taking up salary and not a problem in the locker room. he's a role player. can't be mad at him.

Grunwald hinted that the #Knicks tried to obtain a second-round pick tonight but weren't able to do so.

He remembers, of course. Tim Hardaway Jr. was in his most impressionable years when his father joined the Heat and battled -- and it was a battle -- the Knicks in the playoffs every spring from 1997 until 2000. If there was ever a team for him to inherently hate, it was the Knicks.

"Yeah, I remember a lot of f!ghts," the 21-year-old said recently. "Zo and Ewing, Oakley and Zo, other people and Zo . . ."

But that was another era, one long gone. One in which the Knicks, aside from that maddening '97 series, usually owned.

But these days, the Heat are the indomitable ones. The Knicks are trying to collect the pieces to beat them. Hardaway Jr. now has to become one of the key pieces in that quest.

"You watch a guy like Danny Green," Hardaway Jr.'s college coach, John Beilein told MLive.com, "that's [a role I see] Tim having some day."

Green played a big part in the Spurs' effort to dethrone the Heat in the NBA Finals. He set an NBA record for three-pointers in a Finals series and also was a big part of the Spurs' defensive effort against LeBron James. Green faded late in the series, however, as the Spurs blew a chance to win it in Game 6 and lost the title in Game 7.

Hardaway Jr. has a similar skill set in that he is a very good shooter and is also an athletic and aggressive wing defender.

"We think we added a great piece to our team," Glen Grunwald said. "We felt he was the best player available" at No. 24 overall.

Grunwald admitted needs in several areas and the Knicks hoped to target a point guard in the draft. Shane Larkin, was the last PG the team had on its board, but he didn't come close to falling to them. Larkin was scooped up at No. 18.

There was an effort made to move into the second round -- perhaps to nab Nate Wolters or Isaiah Canaan -- but they couldn't find a trading partner. "We had a lot of great ideas," Grunwald said, "no one seemed to agree with them."

Still, getting Hardaway Jr. helps the team get two elements they needed: younger and more athletic. He and Iman Shumpert should make an energetic, defensive-minded duo, which we will get a preview of on the Knicks' summer league team in Las Vegas next month.

While for now he conjures images of a noted Knick foe from the past, Hardaway Jr. can soon begin to create his own name.

"Crazy," is how Grunwald described his experience with the free agency market since he took over the Knicks from Donnie Walsh in 2011. In that time he made a surprising sign and trade move for Tyson Chandler, brought in Jason Kidd and Marcus Camby and saw Jeremy Lin walk to Houston.

And come July 1, he and his staff have to dive back into the mosh pit again.

"Things happened the last couple of years that I didn't think would ever happen," Grunwald said of the myriad moves and dramatic changes. "And it could happen again."

The Knicks don't have their amnesty buyout anymore, are not currently in position to execute a sign-and-trade (because of CBA restrictions) and only have a taxpayer's mid-level exception ($3.1 million per) to offer.

They have two important restricted free agents -- Chris Copeland and Pablo Prigioni -- to re-sign (and may have to use the MLE to do it), plus their No. 2 scorer, J.R. Smith, opted out to become an unrestricted free agent.

Lots of issues, limited resources. How does Grunwald get it done?

"We have to be opportunistic," he said. "We have to be ready."

They also have to be wary of the aggressive move the Nets made in acquiring veterans Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry from the Celtics. Not only do the Knicks have to build up a team that can take on the Heat, Pacers and Bulls, now that have to keep in mind the presence of KG and Pierce in their own backyard.

While the Nets bold move can't be ignored, the danger, of course, is in over-reacting.

"We'll just let it play out," Grunwald said.

Carmelo Anthony felt great about a lot of things yesterday — his “dream’’ of restoring basketball courts at Brooklyn’s Red Hook Apartments where he grew up being just one of them.

Anthony, who winced often during the Knicks’ second-round loss against the Pacers, said his left shoulder is doing very well and put the kibosh on speculation he could need surgery.

Anthony injured the shoulder late in the Celtics series and played in pain in the six-game defeat to Indiana after which it was revealed he played with a small tear in his labrum.

The Post reported he would rehab the shoulder and not undergo surgery, but reports suggested surgery was still not ruled out if it didn’t heal in three weeks.

“Much better,’’ Anthony said after the Red Hook ceremony. “The shoulder feels much better. I had four, five weeks to let it rest and heal up. It’s not 100 percent yet, but it’s much better.’’

Asked if it’s still possible of surgery down the road, Anthony said: “No, I don’t think no surgery is needed.’’

Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald seconded Anthony’s remarks, saying: “We got good reports from our doctors today.”

Asked if there was a chance Anthony could re-injure the shoulder, Grunwald said, “Hopefully it’s a non-issue going forward, but there are no guarantees.”

Anthony is off to China next week to do some more Jordan brand appearances so he will miss the free-agency period. The Post reported after the Knicks being knocked out of the playoffs, Anthony told a confidant he hoped the Knicks get him a secondary scorer.

Anthony declined to be specific yesterday and said he’s not making public demands.

“It’s kind of hard to say you need this piece or that piece,’’ he said. “I won’t whine or complain about anything. All I can do is tighten up my belt and keep on moving and going and get the troops going.’’Anthony said he intended to watch last night’s draft where the Knicks had the 24th pick and took Michigan’s Tim Hardaway Jr., son of NBA great Tim Hardaway. Iman Shumpert said he was rooting for the Knicks to take Glen Rice Jr., his former classmate, but Anthony made no such predictions.

“We’ll see what happens,’’ he said. “Those guys [management] have been working on this situation, this opportunity for a long time. I’ll sit back and watch and see who’s going to be the newest Knick. After the first five, it’s all pretty even.’’’

Anthony knows the Knicks can use a point guard now that Jason Kidd retired, but he joked about the defection to Brooklyn.

“I talked to Coach Jason,’’ he said. “We’ll continue to have that relationship. I wish him all the luck. I was kind of a little upset he went across the bridge and took our plays and takes them over to Brooklyn. We laugh and joke about that. [But] he deserves it.’’

That the Pacers took Miami to seven games did nothing to soothe Anthony’s psyche.

“I never look at it like that,’’ Anthony said. “Indiana beat us. We lost. We’ll get better this summer.’’

Anthony was genuinely moved by yesterday’s ceremony. The one decaying court was expanded to two sparkling ones — with “Melo’’ inscribed in the midcourt circle.

“I want you to use it every day, as much as you can,” Anthony said to the crowd. “If it gets messed up, no problem, we’ll repaint it. That means you’re using it.’’

Anthony moved from Red Hook to Baltimore at age 10, but still has some relatives living there.

Anthony said he plans to build seven courts a year and has already done so in Baltimore and Puerto Rico, where his father was born.

“It all started right here,’’ Anthony said. “This is for the kids. As a kid I had a court to go to. I had somewhere to go to play. I had a place to go, a safe haven. I had something to look forward to.’’
