That guard your referring to is Lance Stephenson, he needs to be unleashed. Essentially had the ball in Indiana, and played with a PG who wasn't a natural distributor, George Hill.
So Jordan Clarkson = George Hill, but to me his confidence and potential is higher.We need to insert some new flavor in the back court, people who don't back down and take pride in defense.
If we get Jordan Clarkson and Lance starting, with Galloway and Affalo backing them up, we can consistently compete with the dynamic backcourts of the NBA, but you need all 4 players on the Knicks roster. You can't trade Gallo or Affalo or this won't work. I also see Affalo playing that Livingston role with Golden State, with those post up moves that are automatic. With Melo playing like this season, with his assist going up, and the improvement of Prozingis and Lopez, this is a championship team, I truly believe that. You also have to remove the kid from Duke from the rotation and only insert Derrick Williams at Melo position, and Quinn should be the first big off the bench, playing a 3 big man rotation. With the remaining money, you resign Seraphin and use as a 4th big sparingly, or you go out a sign another big.
LASTLY, you need to get coach Thibs who will elevate everyone's game on defense. And Phil needs to teach him the triangle to run. Bell even the players can teach him; all current starters are very smart.
