David Lee signed by this week?
what do you think? 5 years with NY sounds good to me.
If Portland offers 5-year/50 mill, the Knicks arent matching..
Portland would offer a deal similar to Paul Millsap (front loaded)
My Knick source are saying Lee would sign a 5 year-40 mill deal offer where the deal would be back loaded to save some space for 2010 and 2011
I dont see why Lee would go to Portland. At Portland, he would share time and scoring with Aldridge, Oden, and Pryzbila. In NYC, he would be the go to guy in the paint and get all the time he wants. For the same amount of money along with the fame for a year then the opportunity to play with a great player or two in a year or two, sounds good to me to stay in New York.
As a Knick fan,I want Lee back. I think Hill could be good next to Lee. Rebounding Machines.
I think Hill could be a great sixth man. I dont know about starting beside him because they are both 6'9 and naturally PFs. However, I do think that Lee could play some at the C position and Hill probably could too but not for extended periods of time, especially if the Knicks want to win this year.
Hill could possible be a Center if he can get bigger and I think he is like 6'10" and if he grows a inch he could definitely be a legit center in this league. Also who know Galinari could pack on some weight and become a Memmet Okur type.
Gallinari is more like Hedo than Okur. We have Darko now. Lee, Darko, and Hill is a very versatile frontcourt. Darko and Hill can shoot and Lee's mid-range jumper is underrated. Darko complements both Lee and Hill with his shot-blocking ability.
Dont forget. Darko is a good passer.
That Olympiakos is considering offering him a contract. They already offered one to Nate, plus they have Childress. Don't know if it will happen, but it is a possibility.
Not Likely but a possibility.
