Dwight Howard going to the Nets.
Dwight Howard probably going to the Nets.
and David Aldridge is reporting that the Magic may file tampering charges against two teams for contacting Howard before the "official" start of free agency.
D-12 will be with the Magic for a little while longer, f*** the Nyets
well the Knicks signed Mike Bibby to a 1 year deal
they are also after J.J Berea.

http://www.hoopsworld.com/new-york-k...amal-crawford/The Knicks are zeroing in on Jamal Crawford and trying to add the veteran shooting guard through a sign-and-trade, according to sources close to the situation.
The Knicks contacted Crawford’s camp on Friday and are trying to sell him on the situation. Crawford would have to take a significant pay cut to join the Knicks, but sources say he’s open to the idea.
Looks like Berea is going to the T-Wolves. What do you guys think of Delonte West as a PG option? I think he is still available.
please keep Crawford the hell away from this team.
he's past his prime, and he was never good to begin with.
inconsistent, plays no D, doesn't rebound, doesn't get to the line, never saw a 3-pointer he didn't like, and is only effective when he's the primary ball-handler. that would never work on a team with Melo and Amare as options 1-A and 1-B.
With the NFL season coming to a close hope the Knicks are up for a big season. People say Baron Davis is done but he still does good with assist. I feel like we are fine at guard now.
PG-Baron Davis, Toney Douglas, Mike Bibby
SG-Landry Fields, Iman Shumpert
SF-Carmelo Anthony, Landry Fields
PF-Amare Stoudemire, Ronaldo Balkman, Josh Harrellson
C-Tyson Chandler, Jeff Jeffries, Jerome Jordan
Would like to sign James Posey if possible.
I could see Shumpert unseating Fields to become the starting guard.
As far Baron, definitely a much needed signing and he's still a real quality player when healthy. In terms of his back injury, it sounds as if the reports of his condition pre-amnesty were a bit exaggerated. Reports prior to the amnesty were that it would keep him out 8-10 weeks, but now it's sounding like it's going to be more like 4 weeks, maybe 6 at the max. A healthy Baron with the weapons already in place in the frontcourt could be a very good fit. He's going to get to operate in one-on-one situations at all times and he'll thrive in that. I think Bibby will also see minimal minutes, which is good, because I don't think he really has anything left in the tank.

Im loving this offseason. Landed a true defensive center in Tyson Chandler, a top 3-5 defensive center. Drafted what looks to be a future NBA star in Iman Shumpert, whos by far the most athletically gifted talent coming out of this years draft class and just landed a 32 year old Baron Davis whos a pure PG. Once Baron Davis returns to full health, our team will become impossible to stop.
MDA said on Shumpert, that hes going to be a multi-purpose player. He stated that he might become a starting point, he might become a starting two. He said he thinks it will depend on his teammates more than what he does. He said Shumpert will be good at either position. Also made it known that Shumpert has a pretty high ceiling.
Baron Davis said he chose the Knicks over Heat and Lakers because of frontline, playing in MSG, and MDAs offensive system. Said that people may know him mainly as a scorer, but says he is just as good of a passer. Also stated that hes never played with this much talent on one team.
Its true. Davis had the most valuable assists in the league last season, and it wasnt even close. Among players with at least 300 assists, Davis average assist was worth .841 points, well ahead of the league average of .667. And lets you think that was all from having Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan slamming down dunks, consider that Davis assist value didnt change at all after the trade to Cleveland. More than half of Davis assists were layups or dunks, according to Hoopdata.com, compared to the league average of 38 percent; conversely, only 26.3 percent of his dimes were bad assists that led to 2-pointers away from the basket.
