    The Knicks don't have any cap space unless melo walks, and even then they barely have any. Also why would Lowry sign there with no melo?
    Because it's New York and because the Knicks will throw money at him. Remember, if Lowry requests a sign-and-trade to New York, the Raps will be obliged to try and find a way to make it work. (Which would probably involve us sending Lowry, Novak and Landry to New York in exchange for Stat's expiring, Tim Hardaway Jr. and more picks.)

    If Orlando gets a top 3 pick and can't negotiate a trade down, they'll probably end up taking one of Parker/Wiggins/Randle because they always draft the best player available (which is far from the worst plan in the world). If Orlando gets a 7-10 pick because they don't play badly enough (quite possible, especially now that they're playing much better with Harris back), they'll try to trade UP but they might not be able to get Exum/Smart.

    Exum and Smart are definitely part of Orlando's game plan but there's no guarantee they get one of them.
    Going after Randle may not be a bad idea, now that I think about it. I doubt Big Baby is part of Orlando's long-term plans right now.

    So yeah, since Parker/Randle/Wiggins are essentially all on the same level, Randle would be my guess for them. I believe they're set on Tobias Harris as their SF of their future.

    The Knicks are over the tax threshold so they can't sign and trade....

    They are not a suitor for Lowry in the offseason. If they want him they deal now and try to resign with bird years.

    disagree. and so does his shot chart for the game

    Yeah my bad, I was exaggerating.
    It was his play in the clutch that troubled me, when the game was tightening up at the end.
    There was one play, for example, where he missed a bad, constested jump-shot, but made a lay-up off his own rebound.
    Made his shot-chart look good, but bad decision making.
    I guess my expectations are going up with his improved play:
    The fact was, I didn't feel confident when he had the ball in his hands at the end of the game.
    He seemed to lose his cool somewhat and revert to mid-range DeMar.

    man did i get a good sleep after a game like that
    great game guys
    that was pretty embarrassing on the knicks part
    2 back to back losses the same team after your coach acting cocky as fuck
    take a seat new york and embrace the division leaders
    Terrence got it going in the third fuck he had it going all night long
    man, was demar frustrated
    cant believe the ref actually maned up and walked over to the raps huddle
    Vazquez played a good 48 seconds of ball
    without lowry this team sucks
    amare almost killed it for us

    jr has a brother?

    Andrea kinda looks like Luca from masterchef #ItalianBrothas
    every time i saw jr he reminded me of rihanna even tho i've always wanted her to go out with rondo. dont ask me why I dont know either

    personally i like angry knick fans
    What they got to say now? Nothing they can say now. Mobbin' on the low. Winnin' on the low
    The city embraced me, made me feel at home. The only difference [between Compton and Toronto] for me is the cold. -DeMar

    This ref is vet. He's in his 12th season, he doesn't need to man up, players respect him

    I'm talking about the "what if Melo bails" scenario; if Melo declines his option the Knicks suddenly drop under the tax and can sign and trade.

    Despite being New York, I can't imagine a sensible player wanting to play there in their current state AND knowing their future outlook with several picks traded away in consecutive years. Plus melo gone and you have to play with JR and bargnani? That's basically the NY version of DD and bargs and we all know how that turned out.

    His Knick teammates seemed to avoid him on the bench. The body language of the whole bench was telling.
