NFT: Knicks Post-Game: Smith, Jordan and Matthews with Media

Beezer : 2/3/2019 4:30 pm
Doubtful anything changes. Seems like a foregone conclusion that Jordan and Matthews will be gone sooner rather than later.

But man, it would be nice if there was some way to get Jordan to sign up alongside two max signings next summer. Donít know how the numbers could work but imagine Smith and Jordan (who said during the press conference simply ďIím happy hereĒ), plus Durant and _______, with a very good draft pick, Knox, Robinson, Trier, Dotson, Cornett, Frank, Mudiay ...

Anyhow. If thereís any way to make it happen, Jordan would be a great guy to have on board. I wonít hold my breath.
Jordan is very close with KD

i could see him being a vet signing next to the 2 max stars
1.) renounce Jordanís rights

2.) sign two max players, 3.) bring Jordan back on the MLE
I canít see them being able to afford Jordan. Heís still a good player

Someone will offer him $10+ mil per year even if itís just a 1 or 2 year deal.

sucks for Frank. Kid is struggling as it is, now add that nugget. I guess his value is salary dump incentive level. Pretty sad for a top 10 pick just 2 years ago

Isnít getting rid of Frank and having Smith Jr on the team what every Knicks fan wants? Iíve read for two years how Phil blew the pick and didnít take Smith Jr....
Very awkward press conference  
PhilSimms15 : 2/3/2019 8:00 pm : link
Matthews seemed depressed, Smith seemed nervous. On Jordan seemed composed. Must be tough to join the worst team in the league. Also was apparently the first time any of those guys were traded.

I wouldnít take anything that guy ďreportsĒ as credible, especially if itís trade-related. With that being said, there was an ESPN article yesterday about trade talk around the league and the Magic were apparently talking to the Mavs about a DSJ for Bamba deal. Wonder if he was discussed with NYK who met with him the day before the draft.
Letís flip  
bigbluehoya : 2/3/2019 8:23 pm : link
DSJ for Bambi. Iím in for that.
Fucking autocorrect

No MLE when you're under the cap. I don't know why people keep messing that up year after year.

Actually, there is. Teams under the cap entering the offseason have a MLE worth up to $4.6M / year, 2 year max contract. Colloquially referred to as the ďRoomĒ exception.
Send Frank and Vonleh to magic  
Earl the goat : 2/3/2019 10:50 pm : link
For Bomba

Then send Jordan to Milwaukee for Bjeluca and Smith and Thon Maker

Start accumulating large athletic 7 footers
Maker
