Should the Knicks go get Rubio's right...now?
Yes or no and why?
I feel like you should look into trading for him
they should, but it's pointless because I doubt he'll come over anytime sooner then whats already been scheduled
I think Rubio will be good in the NBA, but before the Wolves see him play good Knicks shoud aquire him somehow. The Wolves would probably want like CHandler if Rubio plays well but that would suck.
The Wolves arent going to trade Rubio's contract any time soon
Chandler isn't off to a great start he looks like an athletic SG/SF who isn't aggressive can't shoot well and doesn't utilize his talent so far. Its early in the season but I'd definately consider putting him on the trading block.
Definately they should go after Rubio since the list of point guards is getting smaller.
Since end of last year Nash, Rondo, Kidd, Miller, Sessions all gone.
Maybe they like Rafer Alston or Randy Foye not sure what Walsh is thinking. I though he made two good moves getting rid of Crawford and Randolph's contracts. Then you see them moved again in the offseason so that wasn't a great move. His draft picks of Gallo and Hill over guys like Brook Lopez and Jennings leave you scratching your head. Chris Duhon isn't even close to a starter not sure how he's regressed from last year so much. Walsh doesn't want to add on the salary cap for 2010 but he better make some moves by the trade deadline because they don't have a 1st rounder. Its good to have patience but when your only hope is free agency its a big gamble. Then you hear this nonsense about them interested in Iverson give me a break. Get it together if you can't land Rubio try trading into the upcoming draft. So far Walsh's big moves have been getting Lee and Nate to resign for 1 year deals and drafting Tony Douglas. Lee and Robinson are role players and clearly not worth their asking price. Nate is a SG he's a 6th man really. If you think about it all their players would be bench guys on other teams except maybe Al Harrington & Larry Hughes at least the way he's played this year.
Problem with the Knicks is they always over value players on their roster which is why they've had a history of overpaying guys its been going on since the 90's. Whether its Allan Houston, Charlie Ward, John Starks, Sprewell the list goes on and on. If you look at their history most of their trades are one sided with them giving away expiring contracts to the other team. The only move bold made then that worked out was trading Oakley an aging vet for a young center in Camby who of course they moved. Who knows maybe Tony Douglas is the answer at point guard thankfully they gave him some minutes.
Yeah i like Douglas alot but he is having trouble getting assists. I love how he is starting to emerge to the closest thing to a go-to scorer that we have. He reminds me of Rodney Stuckey. He is a fierce competitor and i think he can improve tremendously.
I would love to see Randy Foye in a NY jersey
