Just being in the East should see some improvement in production and the Knicks have basically zero size for their team and this helps them with that. The Knicks are a major work in progress but I think this is a far better signing than the Rose and Taylor trades they made last season.
Knicks have no shot at LeBron in 2 seasons unless they trade Marbury. Otherwise, Hardaway, Timmy Thomas and Houston dropping off the cap does not help enough. But trading Steph, and not taking back any long term deal, would do it.
