I like Acy too but as much as Tyler...he's taller, somewhat defensive minded, and we can insert him into the Triangle as a big with a jumpshot. And we're his fav team growing up too. Dude wanted to be a Knick. We better be trying to sign him back. Or is this not allowed from the last CBA...

Yo Born, what's the word on signing back a player who is getting waived by the team acquiring him in the trade??
As far as talent and skill Tyler might be better, but Acy is gonna do the dirty work. Might not be as affective as a Kenneth Faried but a similar impact. If he could give us that without us having to give Shump, thats a win/win.

Phil Jackson didn’t make any moves on Thursday. But the Knicks’ chances of winning a title during Jackson’s tenure may have taken a hit.

According to multiple reports, the Minnesota Timberwolves have reached an agreement in principle to trade Kevin Love to the Cleveland Cavaliers for 2014 No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins, 2013 No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett and a protected 2015 first-round draft pick.

Making matters worse for the Knicks, Yahoo! Sports reported that Love has committed to re-sign with Cleveland next summer for five years and $120 million-plus after opting out of his contract. Such an agreement would be a violation of NBA rules.

But let’s a.ssume it goes through.

Not only does Phil have to build a Knicks team that can get past a Cleveland squad that features LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. He now has to worry about a Love-LeBron-Kyrie triumvirate. (Irving is signed to a five-year deal and James can opt out of his contract after this season but is expected to remain with the Cavs long-term.)

All of this means that the next two offseasons in particular are critical for Jackson’s pursuit of a championship.

In order to compete with Cleveland, Jackson will have to spend the Knicks’ cap space wisely in free agency in 2015 and/or 2016. The challenge for Jackson will be to build a team centered around Carmelo Anthony that can compete with the LeBron-Love-Irving trio. And to do so while taking advantage of Anthony’s prime years.

(Of course, this a.ssumes that all three stars remain healthy and that the Knicks eventually have to defeat the Cavs in the Eastern Conference playoffs to reach the Finals.)

So what does Jackson have to work with?

The Knicks could have $18 million to spend in free agency in the summer of 2015. That may be enough to land a max player, such as Marc Gasol.

But Jackson said last month that the Knicks may instead look to sign multiple players with their cap space.

Again, it’s imperative to spend wisely here. The Knicks need to build a roster around Anthony that can compete with Cleveland. There are a million ways to demonstrate just how difficult that will be now that Love is a Cav.

Here’s one:

In Love and James, the Cavs have two of the NBA’s top three players in win shares, which is an estimate of the number of wins contributed by a player. (Kevin Durant led the NBA with 19.3 win shares, James had 15.9 and Love had 14.3). Irving had a 6.7 win share in 2013-14.

The Knicks leader in win shares was Anthony, who posted a 10.7 mark (13th in the NBA).

Again, this is just one way to illustrate the obvious: Love’s move to Cleveland is one more road block for Phil Jackson in his quest to bring an NBA title to New York.

Sometimes it was a phone call. On other occasions, it was a recruiting pitch over dinner.

In some form or another, Carmelo Anthony and Derek Fisher have been in touch throughout the summer.

In fact, as soon as Anthony re-signed with the Knicks, Fisher handed Anthony a playbook with the team’s new triangle offense.

“I speak to him all the time,” Anthony said of Fisher, according to an article posted on PrimeraHora.com and translated by ESPN Deportes' Marly Rivera. “He is as excited to start this season as I am, which you don’t see very often in coaches. Usually you see coaches that worry about you, that call you to check how you are and what you need. And he has already developed a good relationship with me in that sense. I believe that our relationship will be very positive.”

Fisher's relationship with Anthony -- and, more important, his effect on Anthony's performance on the court -- will be one of the more interesting aspects of this Knicks season.

Below, we take a look at some of the aspects of Anthony's game that Fisher can impact:

1. Late-game scoring: Last season, Carmelo’s shooting percentage dipped significantly late in games. He shot 47.9 percent from the field in the first quarter, 49.3 percent in the second quarter and 45.2 percent in the third quarter. But in the fourth quarter, Anthony shot just 38.0 percent from the field. In overtime, that number dipped to 30 percent. Anthony also struggled late in close games, going 1-for-12 on potential game-tying or game-winning baskets in the final 30 seconds. He was 1-for-7 in those scenarios in the previous season.

Was this due to fatigue? Was it a product of defenses keying in on Anthony late in games? Was it the Knicks’ overreliance on Anthony on offense?

Fisher may have the solution to those problems. Phil Jackson said recently that he is confident that Fisher can keep the ball from sticking in Anthony's hands on offense.

"You always have to have someone who is strong enough to tell your major player -- maybe a Carmelo, or Kobe Bryant or a Michael Jordan -- 'I'm not going here with the ball with you right now. We have other guys who have to be involved in the offense, we have a system we want to run.' And Derek always had that ability to say that," Jackson said in an interview last month on MSG Network.

Jackson said that Fisher had the ability to tell his teammates, "'You may want the ball now but I'm going to adjust this game to how it should be played and we have other guys who need to have touches and [the opponent's] defense is now c*cked so they're trying to stop our major scorers all the time.'"

"Derek has that knowledge," Jackson said. "We're a team that has relied a lot on Carmelo to do a lot of the scoring for us. We need to have someone who understands that we don't have to go to Carmelo all the time, we can go back to him later."

If Fisher can keep the ball moving late in games while keeping Carmelo -- and everyone else -- happy, it may improve his star forward's impact late in games.

2. Ball movement: Anthony’s reputation as a "ball stopper" is a bit overblown. The Knicks' a.ssist percentage was nearly identical when Carmelo was on the floor compared to when he was off of it last season. One scout who watched Anthony frequently over the past two seasons noted that his ball movement out of double-teams had improved markedly.

But Anthony still operates heavily in isolation. He led the league in isolation scoring last season, averaging 6.6 isolation PPG, according to Synergy Sports. Those isolation sets had an impact on the Knicks' ball movement. New York ended the season ranked 24th in touches per possession and 25th in points created by a.ssists per game -- two signs of an ineffective offense. The Knicks finished the season ranked 24th in points per possession.

But the ball movement should improve in the offense this season thanks to Fisher and the triangle -- and Carmelo may benefit. The 30-year-old has a strong outside shot and is a good improvisational passer -- two skills that are useful in any offense, but particularly in the triangle.

Also, when run successfully, the triangle can weed out some of Anthony's worst habits (contested jump shots, overreliance on dribbling/holding the ball). So this is another area where Fisher can help Anthony.
