Agree to one year deal with Robinson & Lee. Just saw on ESPN bottomline.
One thing to say...
ITS BOUT TIME!
Every says its taken too long, but this was a great move by Donnie Walsh to take the slow approach
Because in the end it lowered there value, and pretty much forced them into signing much cheaper, 1-year deals from what they expected
If Isaiah Thomas was still here, David Lee would of gotten a max deal, and Nate Robinson would have gotten 10mill per, for 6 years
Finally, and they made it so they can still make noise in the 2010 financially too. Walsh did the right thing here.
good move but if they cant get much next year in free agency next year they might leave and they would be in a deep hole.
good call magicknick, yeah if Isiah was still there they would of both got max deals and part ownership of the team.
ROFL part ownership...
cheap a$$ mutha frickng knicks nate and david will be gone next year aleast give them 2 years
the knick are not gonna get notice from a big name free agent with a bad roster u have to have something going 4 you other then money and if they do get lebron next year hell be gett paid to be a lozer and they dont know how to draft three good players out of of 5-6 years of lottery picks is bad and pickin gallinori or how ever u spell it when u should of got an center
or shooting guard ,brook lopez or eric gordan and utah has there pick in next year's draft next year's draft looks pretty deep and lance stevenson is lottery bound why is he in the second rd
i dont hate the knicks but they make me angry new york should have a winning team as a new yorker im very sad 2 have them clame my city i want them to turn the franchise around i need them 2 turn the franchise around
So signing Nate and Lee to expensive long-term deals would of changed the franchise?
And whats makes Gallinari a bust already? Because he hurt his back?
i didnt say that hes a rookie but he not a franchise /game changer type of player now is he??? i think he'll be good
but brook and gordan are better picks now am i lying
u kno im not!!! i just want them 2 be great
I love the way both of these guys play. Didnt Lee start the league as a Point/Foward kind of player?? He can handle the ball from what I remember. Next year, a team like the Celtics need to grab Lee. He is a great tallent waiting to shine. Robinson is a very exciting player who can score like no other player his size. He would be great next to a big PG like Derron Williams. He needs the right team to snag him, the Jazz, and he would be unreal. He could guard the opposing PG and Williams could guard the SG. He couldnt start but he could play a hell of a lot.
No way, I agree with D. Lee being talented, but Big Baby is in Boston and he should be the guy in line after Kevin Garnett at Power Forward. The C's got a good group of Players with Big Baby, Rondo, and Perkins.
I respect that. I just dont want to see him play for the Blazers. How about the Spurs?? Bring him off the bench or let Duncacn play the C.
Spurs? Hmm, with McDyess, Blair, and Bonner at the 4 I doubt it...I don't know what their contracts look like, but everyone is high on Blair so I doubt D. Lee would go to the Spurs.
How about the Nuggets? They probably dont have the cap space untill Kmart comes off the books.
that sounds great and a soon as he step in texas he'll start on the spurs all those other player would be his back up
