Nick Calathes

Simple as that, they were already offering up Farmar to the Rockets. I have them taking him in the second round since I think he'll drop. Meeks isn't going that early and neither is Pendergraph, or I don't think.

If Minnesota doesnt package

If Minnesota doesnt package their 2 late first rounders, #28 could be sold too.

D'Antoni was high on McClinton but Ellington, Claver, Green, Brown could be available and they are better choices.

I'd be very happy with

I'd be very happy with Claver or Ellington. I feel the same way about him knicksboy. He has 2-guard talent in a 6'10" frame. Looks like a more athletic Gallo. I heard he hasnt looked that good since he hurt his knee though.

I still have a thing for

I still have a thing for Jennings. We're becoming Euro-team. Gallo, Darko, Claver? I dont know who to put at 29 in my mock.

trade

heres the link: http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=4285133

 apparently they're going after UM's Jack McClinton, not a bad pick up I suppose, he would fill the eddie house type roll on that team, don't forget House lit it up in D'antoni's system a few years ago. 

"The Knicks, meanwhile, are looking to add another guard through Thursday's draft, a source told Katz, and they might look at the University of Miami's Jack McClinton at No. 29. The Knicks made inquiries about McClinton with the school as late as Wednesday."

I dont think calathes

Knicks arent even sure he'll play in America i think if they dont get Jordan Hill theyll go after Taj Gibson, if they get Jordan Hill i think theyll go after a Euro that D'Antoni loves maybe that french guard buebois

I heard about McClinton too.

I heard about McClinton too. I hope not, he is not a top 30 player. If I was the Knicks

8- Jrue Holiday (Defensive-minded, 6-4 and a slasher as a PG)
29- Victor Claver (6-10, PG skills but he will stay over in euro for 2 years)

also, in FA we should add CJ Miles, Gerald Green and Marcin Gortat

Where did you hear that? I heard Holiday and Jennings are in the mix with Derozan and Henderson if Curry, Hill and Evans are gone.

No Gortat!!! Jerome James

No Gortat!!! Jerome James part 2. He had very little minutes after Howard and Battie already wore down the other team.

Gerald

Green in Dantoni's offense? Can you say potential reached?!?!? I'd love to see that. He'd shine in that system...

Gerald Green is my master

Gerald Green is my master plan. Darko could have a coming out party in NY too. They can both restart their careers.

Question for Knicks Fans:

I wouldnt want to commit

I wouldnt want to commit suicide like I have after other drafts but I'd rather have a PG. I want to sign Gerald Green as a 2.

why is flynn not getting any consideration

I haven't seen in a while Jonny Flynn getting any consideration by the Knicks. I believe he will make a great PG for the team, and he is not just a guy who plays Offense he prides himself in D.

I doubt we pick Claver at 29

I doubt we pick Claver at 29 because he is expected to stay in Europe and we'd have to give him a guaranteed contract.

I have

Flynn going to the Knicks and staying in that orange. ;)
Gerald and Darko restarting their careers in New York would be great, but I think Green is still with the Mavs for one more season, or is he? Also, someone told me that I shouldn't wait to work on my Mock because later this site will become horribly slow and mess up alot...something about them not adding that server after all. It's working better then the past couple of days though.

Flynn went from being

Flynn went from being underhyped to being overhyped. That game is his claim to fame. He had a very good career but there were no major achievements.

He was still a star without

He was still a star without that game, its just other places across the country understood who he was. If you look at the Knicks roster, he is the type of player they need. Its not like there roster is stacked with guys who are team players. They wonder why they cant make the playoffs in the east

Something tell me

Something tell me (Knicksfreak, tell me if you agree)

8TH- Derozan and 29th- Mills? I think they may go PG later...im starting to get that feeling.

I was thinking about

I was thinking about something similar but if Harden fell. Lawson may also fall to 29. I think Donnie has settled on Holiday. I wish we would trade our pick to Chicago for 16 and 26. Chicago would love Harden or Henderson in the backcourt with Rose. Jennings may still be available at 16. Brown at 26 and Claver at 29.

Who are you looking at 29? I

Who are you looking at 29?

I mean i have like 5 ideal players

Pendergraph
Gibson
Meeks
Mills
Ellington
also...i keep think Jerebko.

I also keep hearing Minnesota does not like Harden....but what if GS takes him because they like the passing guard/forward type.

I'm not high on Gibson,

I'm not high on Gibson, Mills and Jerebko. I think its a reach for Pendergraph and maybe Meeks. I prefer Ellington or Brown if hes still available as BPA. I love Claver and hope we grab an early 2nd rounder to get him.

I wouldnt be upset with;
Ellington
Brown
Claver
Meeks
Summers
Lawson
Mills
Green

LOL...rubio i dont blame you

LOL...rubio i dont blame you man. I remember going to knicks games when i was 3 years old man. My baby set with Orange and Blue man.

Almost 80% of NY people like the Knicks but there is a die-hard 20% of them who still die by the team.

McClinton

If they take him at 29, they are braindead. There will be so many better SGs available at that spot, they would be nuts to reach on someone so one-dimensional. Ellington, Meeks, Thornton, Douglas, Taylor all should be there - all better than McClinton.

No disrespect to him, I liked him as a collegian & he could surprise me as a pro, but I just can't imagine they paid $3 million to grab McClinton at that spot.

Couldn't they get McClinton

Couldn't they get McClinton is mid second round? Why trade for a late first for that?

They said a long time ago

They said a long time ago that they would try to trade for a late first rounder to make sure he is still available.
