Dragic has the Knicks as one of his preferred destinations but doubt a trade happens since the Suns are being totally unrealistic with what they want in return for someone who is a free agent in the offseason

Random thoughts on what id do this offseason. sorry for the novel, not gonna respond, just wanted to drop this for old times sakes :P and see some reactions.

The knicks need to draft D'Angelo Russell... Anyone hoping for the #1 pick and Okafor is gonna be disappointed watching that P'n'R defense for 10+ years.



James Harden 2.0. Dude is perpetually coasting, makes the game look too easy. His shot release is unorthodox but its almost as quick as steph curry's, 46% from 3 on 6.5 attempts per game is no bs either.

as for the bigs' - Keep the hustle guys(Acy + Lou), offer Enes Kanter a poison pill contract, start him at C, dudes young, developing and can still go for 20/10 on anyone. shooters everywhere... pretty sure that team can score like 105 points per game, and easily play .500 ball (aka make the playoffs).

if one of Robert Upshaw, Jordan Mickey or Brooklyns own Dakari Johnson falls to yall in the 2nd its a godsend. (Marcus Lee too but i doubt he declares)
Mudaiye or Towns is a better fit for what we need but I like D'Russ....I think Towns would make an immediate impact if he matures and learns to stop fouling knick fans will fall in love with his hustle and tenacity...I think Okafur is a long shot at this point always gotta expect the worst

With Melo getting the surgery (THANK YOU!) we now have two vacant spots and hopefully one of them goes to Greek Freak 2.0 so we can see how he plays with the other hustlers on the team (Lance, Pretty Lou, Langston and Acy)

btw, i've asked around and got nothing regarding any other moves NYK possibly making before the deadline....hopefully we can move Calderon's contract for more cap space, pretty much the only move that needs to happen is Jose

Those 2 MIGHT be better longterm fixes, I think they could use Russell a ton next year though, and he could put up ROY #'s(17,4,4).

IMO Russell is a better prospect than Mudiay. I cant see Phil handing Mudiay the keys next year, to see if his over-dribbling is gonna lead them to the playoffs.

Russell's pull up jumper is a serious weapon, put him on the opposite side of the court from melo and the court is stretched and balanced. He reminds me a bit of Curry/Harden/Prime Jamal Crawford, his passing is on par or better than Mudiay's anyway.

Pretty sure Russell's the pick, I Doubt he'd have any issues playing next to Hardaway Jr either. Okafor is overhyped, I dont think Phils got his fingers crossed waiting for him. the rim protection will remain suspect for years if hes the pick and theres too many good Unrestricted FA C's this offseason.

Fisher

Knicks coach Derek Fisher said it’s out of his hands whether to fill the open roster spot but admitted their unsigned second-round pick, shooting guard Thanasis Antetokounmpo, continues to be discussed as an option.

Antetokounmpo, brother of Bucks star Giannis, is playing for the Westchester Knicks and earning $25,000 this season after declining a $500,0000 package from an Italian League squad. The Knicks have had an open roster spot since buying out Amar’e Stoudemire during All-Star Weekend.

Though this is a time to audition young players for next season as the club has been out of the playoff race since well before Christmas, Knicks brass has yet to make a move.

“Ask Phil [Jackson], Steve [Mills], Allan [Houston] in terms of the philosophy of leaving it open,’’ Fisher said. “I don’t factor into the equation if we should fill it or not. I’ve stated my opinion who it may or may not be. It hasn’t been brought to me that it’s being heavily considered.

“I’m not really involved in those daily discussions if we’ll stay at 14 or 15. It’s not on my radar as a priority. Obviously all our guys on the D-League team are being evaluated. Thanasis’ name has come up in different discussions.’’

One factor in keeping Antetokounmpo in the D-League is if he signs a contract, he will count as a second-year player next season and his salary would be $850,000. That’s $300,000 more than if he were just a rookie.

The 6-foot-6 Greek-born defensive stopper is considered a project. As The Post first reported, he was drafted by Jackson as “a stash player.’’ But nobody figured the Knicks would be on pace for the franchise’s worst record and spending March and April developing the young players.

The Knicks have been monitoring players who are being bought out as well as Westchester prospects, Orlando Sanchez, a St. John’s product who was on their training-camp roster, and shooting guard Doron Lamb, a recent pickup who played for the Bucks and Orlando and hails from Queens.

“In terms of [Antetokounmpo’s] future, he determines that in how hard he continues to work,’’ Fisher said. “I enjoyed working with him when I had the opportunity in the summer. He’s a hard-working young man and passionate about the game and loves to play defense. There’s few of those guys left in this business. I think his potential is whatever he wants it to be. Whether he gets to play on our team or NBA team now, I don’t think that will give us an indication if he’s ready.”

PG Jose Calderon missed his fifth straight game with a strained Achilles tendon. He said he may play on the upcoming five-game West Coast trip and will fly with the team to Denver. The Knicks feared in Boston that Calderon had torn his Achilles, which is why he was given an MRI exam after the recent road trip. Calderon had battled pain there for a couple of weeks and it intensified in Boston after getting hit on a layup attempt.

Free-agent-to-be Wesley Matthews of Portland was diagnosed Friday with a torn Achilles after racing upcourt in Thursday’s game. He could miss eight months, making his free-agent foray even more intriguing. Perhaps the Blazers may not be willing to pay him his skyrocketing market value while the desperate Knicks will as he fits the triangle to a tee — a 3-point shooting, big defensive shooting guard.

“That is the worst,’’ Calderon said of Matthews’ injury. “That was what we were making sure of.’’

The New York Knicks are hopeful that Carmelo Anthony will be healthy for the start of the 2015-16 season.

Team president Phil Jackson told reporters in Los Angeles that Anthony is at the practice facility getting treatment on his surgically-repaired knee and is feeling “positive” about the surgery. Jackson expects Anthony to begin workouts in June.

Anthony underwent season-ending surgery to repair a tendon issue -- and possibly other knee damage -- shortly after the All-Star game.

His timetable for return is 4-6 months.

“We hope at some point in June he’s able to start really training again ... so that he's really ready for the year,” Jackson told reporters in Los Angeles. “I think he’s positive about it. We hope the rehab goes great. He’s a guy we want to get back to something like he was a few years ago. This season he played on one leg it seemed like to me from the start it looked like he was favoring that.”


Zen sense of humor: Jackson had a funny line when asked about any joy he’s taken out of the job this season.

“It’s not something I really wanted to do. It’s something that my partner said, ‘You’re sitting on all this information, come on out and destroy a basketball team that you love,’” Jackson said.

Not sure how that joke will play with owner James Dolan, who is paying Jackson $60 million to run his team.

Familiar faces: Jackson said several players on this season’s team who are not under contract this season will be back next season.

“We’re going to ask them to come back and they're going to fill out a good part of our roster. We can’t bring in eight guys and expect them to play together, that’s not a part of our plan,” Jackson said. “We have guys that are going to be really good team members that are participating on this team right now. That part of it is important for us. It also says something about how we’re going to play.”

Anthony, Jose Calderon, Cleanthony Early and Tim Hardaway Jr. are under contract for next season. Langston Galloway has a partially guaranteed deal.

All other players on the roster will be free agents this summer.

NEW YORK -- New York Knicks president Phil Jackson will have a ton of money to offer free agents this summer. He'll also have nearly a dozen championship rings to show them.

But the way Jackson made it sound Thursday, the Knicks' big lure in free agency will be the triangle offense.

"It's not about who is going to have to have the most money anymore. That playing field has pretty much evened out, especially with the amount of money that's coming into the league. It's going to be who's attractive enough to get the people they want to play their style of play," Jackson told reporters in Los Angeles. "So establishing how you want to play basketball is important."

Essentially, Jackson is betting big that free agents will be drawn to New York by his triangle offense. So this summer will be a referendum of sorts on how the offense is viewed by today's players.

If you listen to what some of the Knicks (and ex-Knicks) have said this season, the triangle may have a bit of a popularity problem.

Here's ex-Knick J.R. Smith on the triangle last month:

"If you're a freelancing player and you like to play up and down, it's not going to suit your game. If you like to play in the half court, move the ball and stuff like that and sacrifice, then it is your situation. It just depends."

Smith may have a credibility issue when it comes to the triangle. But Knicks coach Derek Fisher raised similar questions about the triangle's Q rating earlier this season:

"These current players, they don't necessarily have something to say, 'This team won the championship last year or two years ago doing this; let's try to do it that way,'" Fisher said of the triangle offense. "We're having to create belief that actually you can organize and run this system along with being able to just play basketball in a way that will allow you to win and be one of the best teams in the league."

Speaking Thursday, Fisher told reporters in Los Angeles that he didn't believe the triangle would deter free agents from coming to the Big Apple.

"In free agency, the money tends to say a lot to guys. And guys make decisions based on what's best for them and for their families," he said. "We're selling who we are. The triangle is a part of who we are, but I don't think that a guy who knows how to play basketball will be afraid of having an opportunity to come and play [in New York]."

That may be true. But it's fair to point out this hasn't been a great showcase season for the triangle. New York entered play Thursday with the NBA's 29th-ranked offense.

Triangle supporters may point out that the Knicks would be one of the worst teams in the league no matter what offense they run.

Talent -- not offensive philosophy -- is the club's biggest issue.

But the question going forward for the Knicks is this: Will today's stars be attracted to the triangle?

The answer to that question will become clear in July, when the top-name free agents decide on their future home.

The Knicks, of course, have bet $60 million (Jackson's salary) that players will want to play in Jackson's offense.

Still, some longtime league observers wonder if the triangle has a place in today's NBA.

Earlier this season, when the Knicks had their full complement of players,
the triangle produced a statistical profile that seemed to be the polar opposite of most of the NBA's top offenses.

The Knicks led the league in midrange jump shots attempted and were among the bottom-dwellers in the league in points off drives.

So will today's free agents be attracted to that system, or will they want to play in a modern, pick-and-roll offense?

That's one of the biggest questions facing Jackson this summer.
