Will Knicks Match Landry Fields Offer?
From Hollinger's insider article today
"Count me in among those who think the Knicks will match Toronto's ridiculous offer sheet for Landry Fields. New York doesn't care about salary. The Knicks have proved this, and they have just a three-year window with the Anthony-Stoudemire-Chandler group before they'll need to blow it up anyway. Fields' deal fits perfectly on that timeline, as do the arrangements for Kidd and Marcus Camby.
Besides, New York needs somebody to start at the 2 this season while it waits for Iman Shumpert to return from his late-April ACL injury. If the Knicks don't keep Fields, they need to use either Kidd or some minimum contract guy as their starting shooting guard. It will be bloody expensive, but New York has shown time and again that cost isn't going to stop it from getting a player."
Throw that in with BC saying yesterday that Grunwald told him they were 50/50 to match a couple days ago and we still have hope! I would love the extra cap space (either this year or next) as well as the extra playing time for Ross.
Theres still hope!
