Hahn responding to random tweets

“@Ba_Silly: @alanhahn any word on what's going to happen with JR Smith? #knickstape” It's been quiet there. Curious to see what he may get.

“@I_amDonte: @alanhahn Is there any chance that Monta Ellis is on the Knicks Radar?” In my opinion, it's peripheral.

“@STUUUBOI_2: @alanhahn Do you see the Knicks sending Bargnani to the warriors for D. Lee ?” No, I don't see that. But do need rebounding.

“@DarkKent27: @alanhahn why in the world didn't we go after Korver??” He and D-Will go back to Utah days. That was over before it started.

“@Jholzer142: @alanhahn how do the nets have the full mle for korver? they are over the salary cap right?” Wasn't full. Taxpayers. $3M per.

“@DrewCasse: @alanhahn How are the Nets pulling off all these deals? Aren't they way over cap?” Blatche was just a simple raise. Korver MLE.

“@BenJamminSir: @alanhahn Why didnt the Knicks consider Mike Dunleavy?” You wanted him for the full mini MLE?

“@aroc118: @alanhahn what are the chances of the knicks signing Aaron Brooks a proven scoring guard ?” Reportedly on the radar.

Tony Allen reportedly on #Knicks radar. Tho a bit of a long shot, perimeter D (read: keeping opposing PGs out of the paint) is a major need.
Expand

“@MarkIlluzzi: @alanhahn what about dejuan blair?? we could use his rebounding and could definitely come cheap” That is for later in July.

“@kboogs05: @alanhahn I like Matt Barnes, but what bigs are out there...” Brand might be good fit. Limited $$ so have to let market set.

The idea of a 20-minute nightly maximum with a prohibition on playing both ends of back-to-backs has been one of the ideas that has been discussed.

“I don’t think anything has been decided,’’ Walters told The Post yesterday. “The doctors are still talking about that. But he’s not going to play a ton of minutes.’’

An extra-cautious approach on Stoudemire to have him on a minutes restriction lower than last season’s was a factor in the Knicks’ willingness to trade for Bargnani, feeling they needed another scoring big man. The Knicks played 18 back-to-backs last season, so that could potentially be 18 games Stoudemire misses. It’s not all that dissimilar to the Spurs’ treatment of the aging Tim Duncan.

When Stoudemire returned from his first knee debridement surgery on Jan. 1, he was put on a 30-minute restriction, but coach Mike Woodson held him to the mid-20s.

However, in March, Woodson twice played Stoudemire slightly more than 30 minutes during a four-games-in-five-nights stretch, after which Stoudemire headed for a second debridement surgery.

When Stoudemire returned for the second round of the playoffs, doctors told Woodson not to play Stoudemire more than 15 minutes a game. When the season ended, Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald acknowledged Stoudemire could be on a minutes restriction next season after playing just 29 regular-season games.

Now it’s even more prudent with Bargnani’s presence. The Knicks were willing to give up 3-point ace Steve Novak (who is limited otherwise), oft-injured center Marcus Camby, a 2016 first-round pick and two second-rounders for Bargnani, who himself had injury issues last season with a bum elbow, playing just 34 games.

The trade upgrades the team, but underscores the notion Grunwald made two mistakes last summer in overpaying Camby and Novak, both of whom fell out of favor with Woodson during the playoffs.

Bargnani knows the feeling, having fallen out of favor with Toronto fans. He was booed his last two seasons there, failing to live up to being drafted No. 1 overall in 2006. Even former Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo, who drafted the Italian, said late in the season Bargnoni he might benefit from a change of scenery. Colangelo stepped down last week, but the trade talks began weeks ago., revisiting talks from the 2011-12 season, when the Knicks were trying to pawn off Stoudemire’s contract on the Raptors for Bargnani.

While known for his outside shooting, Bargnani, who lives in Rome, has been a subpar rebounder, charged with lacking toughness and a stronger work ethic.

One source close to the Bargnani situation said he is best when he has another European on his squad, and fell apart when Jose Calderon was traded to the Pistons two years ago. The source said Bargnani is hopeful Spanish Leaguer Pablo Prigioni is re-signed by the Knicks.

“Everyone likes his talent, I just doubted how much he loves the game,’’ one NBA GM said. “He likes the game but loves what comes with it. ‘’

The Knicks and Raptors made final revisions to the trade, which won’t become official until July 10. In order to complete the deal, the Knicks will throw in Quentin Richardson in a sign-and-trade scenario to make the math work. Richardson was signed in the final days of the regular season by the Knicks for insurance, but only played during garbage time in the playoffs.The team needed an extra contract, and Richardson signed for the veteran’s minimum of $1.4 million. Because Richardson will be added as a free agent, the deal can’t be announced until the signing period begins in eight days.

The Knicks and Raptors tried to get the original package completed by Sunday night, but the NBA was unable to approve it. Because all of the salary changes that went into effect yesterday, the deal had to be altered to abide by the collective bargaining agreement trade rules.

“@Piaisnumber1: @alanhahn how about getting Lin back home he's on the trading block? Need pg” You mean the contract Knicks didn't want? lol

“@JayThreeMusic: @alanhahn we have shump no need for allen” Both could be fun, at least defensively.

“@NucleoBomz: @alanhahn what are the chances of KryptoNate making his return to the Blue & Orange?” I don't see it.

“@MannersNYC: What about JJ Hickson @alanhahn or is that for later in the month?” I expect he will be out of their price range.

After the additions of 7-foot power forward Andrea Bargnani and first-round pick Tim Hardaway Jr., the Knicks are still looking to add a prototype small forward to their roster, in addition to a point guard.

According to an NBA source, the Knicks are pursuing Rockets free agent small forward Francisco Garcia and former Knick Matt Barnes. The Knicks traded small forward Steve Novak in the Bargnani deal and are not confident they can re-sign forward Chris Copeland.

The source said the 6-foot-7 Garcia, who was born in the Dominican Republic but grew up in The Bronx, has interest in joining the Knicks. He averaged 10.7 points in the playoffs for the Rockets, who didn’t renew his option. (He also played with the Kings last season).

Garcia, drafted out of Louisville, is a good 3-point shooter and defender. The Knicks have their veteran’s minimum and their $3.19 million mid-level exception. They prefer to use the mid-level on a point guard, but one target, C.J. Watson, agreed to terms with the Pacers.

Will Bynum, Aaron Brooks, Devin Harris and Sebastian Telfair are some of the point guards the Knicks reached out to on the first day of free agency. They also sent out a feeler for former Knick Nate Robinson, but a person familiar with the team’s thinking said a reunion is highly unlikely.

* The under-the-cap Pistons have been mentioned as a potential big suitor for J.R. Smith, but a league source said Detroit’s interest isn’t strong. The Bucks also have reported interest, especially after losing Monta Ellis, who has opted out of the final season of his contract, worth $11 million. The Knicks can only offer Smith a contract starting at $5.5 million. The Bucks had offered Ellis a three-year, $36 million extension, but he declined. The Knicks would be considered more than long hots to sway Ellis for the $3.19 million.

* Marcus Camby, part of the Bargnani deal, expressed his displeasure at how he was treated last season in a statement released by his agent. He also hinted at retirement.

“It’s unfortunate that I wasn’t given a meaningful opportunity to contribute last season in New York,” Camby said. “I was really looking forward to the coming year as a chance to show the organization what they missed out on last year, and pushing our team towards the Finals.’’

Camby hinted he doesn’t want to play in Toronto, where he was drafted.

“Given that my goal at this point in my career is to have a shot at a championship, however, I’ll have to evaluate my options going forward,” he said. “I’ve enjoyed a great career and under the right circumstances I hope to continue making an impact in the league.”

With free agency resources are as limited as they are this year for #Knicks, patience is key, but a concern.

Hahn

So aside from the angst-inspiring Bargnani trade, which was done before free agency began, why have the Knicks been so quiet so far while other capped-out teams (i.e.: Nets/Kyle Korver, Bulls/Mike Dunleavy Jr.) are already locking in targets?

For starters, the Knicks have to tend to their own free agents before they can use up the few dollars, and roster spots, they have on others.

J.R. Smith is one important domino. The Knicks don't need to use an exception to re-sign him, but with his Early Bird Rights, they can only re-sign him up to league average. If he takes a bigger offer to go elsewhere, the Knicks will need to replace his scoring and Sixth Man ability.

And the only way they can do it, aside from a trade, is to use their Taxpayer's Mid-Level Exception ($3.1M per).

If he does re-sign (which, to me, is a likely scenario), the Knicks still can't throw the entire TMLE at one free agent until they know what they're doing with Chris Copeland. The rookie is reportedly getting a lot of interest from teams -- Bucks, Pacers, Pelicans, Jazz and Nuggets -- and, though he has said he would love to return to New York, at 29, this may be his one time to cash in on his career.

The Knicks don't have Bird Rights on Copeland, so they can't resign him for much more than his qualifying offer ($988K) unless they dip into the TMLE.

So if they have a target with the full TMLE and don't want to lose that player, they may have to make a decision before Copeland makes his decision.

Remember, you can split up the total TMLE and divide it among multiple players. So, for instance, if you can use it to keep Copeland at $1.2M, you have $1.8M to spend on another free agent (not much, no, but hey, it's better than the max veteran's minimum.

It's still early in the process, of course. And the Knicks will likely be more active later in July, once most of the money around the league has dried up. That's when veteran's minimums to play in New York on a playoff team will generate interest.

So while you may want to see action now from the Knicks, it may not come for another two weeks.

he New York Knicks are preparing to make an offer to Elton Brand, a league source confirmed to ESPNNewYork.com.

The terms of the offer for the veteran power forward are undisclosed at this point.

The Knicks have been after Brand since the start of free agency. Brand is arguably the best big man available for post scoring and rebounding, which the team absolutely needs. Brand is not only a solid rotation player -- he is fine with coming off the bench -- but insurance, as well, considering Amar'e Stoudemire's recent injury history.

Several other teams have expressed interest in Brand, according to the source. Brand is attracted to the Knicks because of their winning culture and first-class organization. In addition, the team is close to his hometown -- he's from Cortlandt Manor, N.Y., and his mother, Daisy, still lives nearby -- and qualify of life is important to him as he decides on his next team.

Brand, 34, has averaged 17.4 points, 9.1 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in his 14-year career. Last season in Dallas, he averaged 7.2 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 21 minutes per game.

If the Knicks sign Brand, they might not consider re-signing power forward Kenyon Martin. They also need a point guard and small forward. A league source told ESPNNewYork.com on Tuesday that "both [point guard] Nate Robinson and [small forward] Matt Barnes have notified the Knicks of their interest. They're waiting to see where the Knicks are."

Up next on the Knicks' immediate priority list is re-signing J.R. Smith and then potentially splitting up their mini mid-level exception of $3.18 million to sign Pablo Prigioni and Chris Copeland. While Prigioni is likely deciding between the Knicks and returning to Spain, where he lives in the offseason and has played professionally for many years, Copeland already has received several offers from different teams.
