What? So no Felton part III in NY? I expected the "Knicks are interested in bringing Felton back"-headline by the start of next week. :D

No scrubs, please. Both are too injury plagued - which is why their price is down. Scrubs might be great for the tank, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't look at adding young talent with your cap space first.

Lol just funny that Tim is considered young talent....he's one of those things..... for now

Only way this deal is worth it is if he drops 17-21 ppg and decides to defend or pass or rebound

We are getting a steal if he can do better in 2 of those things.

18/4 assists and be a 0 defender... I'll take back my shade on the guy

Spree mentioned Fournier's contract in another thread and it's a very interesting comparison. He's got a 5 year $85M deal and averages 17.2 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.0 assists last season in 32 minutes a game. I'm hoping that if we ramp up THJ's minutes and have him start he'll be able to match those numbers, if not better them.

yeh those numbers I can live with but wasnt Evan like 22 when he got that deal?

i think our coaching staff will have alot to do with how Tim will execute. I'd say 80% of players are as good as the system thats set for them.

Not sure if Jeff will do a good job in that setting but I'm curious to find out.

:? Both guys are born in 1992. Fournier is still on the books for 4 years and 68 mill (after already having gotten 17 last season), THJ for 4 years and 71. Also Fournier is just one example of roughly 70 mill committed over 4 years. But anyways: tell me which younger and better player we could've gotten this summer on the free agent market. Realistically to the Knicks. I don't know anyone.
