Knicks not ruling out Fredette

The Knicks aren’t ruling out the recently-bought out Jimmer Fredette (Wojnarowski).

New York is looking to shore up their defense, though, instead of adding another shooter.

So..wouldn't we need an actual shooter before we can add another one?

We have good individual defenders... just sit Felton and stop switching... we will be fine.

Shannon doesn't fix an issue...JR and Tim should get minutes and what does Shannon fix?

We need a PG that can shoot or get to the rack

Shannon isn't either

Does anyone really think this season will have a high impact on weather Melo stays or goes? This is pure speculation but i have to assume Dolan spoke to Melo and explained that the reason Woodson is staying the rest of the year is because no big name coach would ump in right now and that what they are looking for.


The Knicks need to make a few moves in the offseason trade Shump for a pick or package him with Bargnani or Stat (Both will be expiring contracts) Stat in particular can help a team tank with his embarrassing defense.


Most likely Felton won't be with the team after this situation works itself out so we will also need to sign or trade for a PG and i think Rondo and possibly Westbrook if him and KD don't work out will be on the market.


We have to stop being so mad we didn't make any deadline deals because no deal is better than a terrible one. So far Mills hasn't done anything wrong

The knicks should cut Murray...if he's not going to get minutes. Murray is a solid defender, but hes no lock down defender. I've been saying over the last few weeks we should sign Fredette....he has a defined NBA skill. He a GREAT shooter.

Fredette would be a good pick up offensively.

If Mike D'Antoni is still coaching in this league,  Fredette would be nuts to sign anywhere else.   

Defense is an option on D'Antoni teams,  not a must.

I think Freddette would be great pick-up. With Hardaway Jr. and JR (when he's on) as additional sharpshooters, yet can go to the basket, he could definitely work. Because let's face it, long w/ defenders (and a coach), the Knicks need more people who can share the scoring load. Of course this is based on whether Woodson will be able to come up w/ a rotation that'll utilize him... which is shaky at best.

Does this make JR Smith off-court problems look better ???

Carmelo Anthony's Agent Reportedly Met with Knicks Brass Before Loss to Mavs


"About 90 minutes before tipoff Monday night at Madison Square Garden, Leon Rose met Knicks general manager Steve Mills on the court. The two men walked under the stands and disappeared.


Thirty minutes later, Rose emerged and shook hands with Knicks executive Allan Houston. They strolled together through the tunnel leading toward the Knicks' locker room.


These meetings involving the highest levels of the Knicks' brass and Carmelo Anthony's agent came after two straight excruciating losses."

He can probably make a shot, when Melo passes the ball.

No move is about saving the season anymore, its about saving entertainment value at this point, and I could use some. The Knicks defense is the best display of zombies on television, sorry Walking Dead.

I cant wait to see a starting five of Fredette THJR JR Melo Stat. If the opposing team doesn't average at least 120 you have done something terribly wrong.

Not a Fredette fan at all. Not even when he was in college shooting from 50 ft. He is shooting 49% on 3's this year though.

With the team already on its death bed, it wouldn't hurt to sign someone who could hit a shot.

We have two open roster spots; potentially a third with Felton.  Why not add a 3 point specialist?  Not saying we need to load him up with minutes, but give the guy 15 minutes a game or so and let him be the new Novak.

Melo just tell Dolan Woodson is not working.  You're our only hope for getting this burnt potato fired.  Save us all from this misery.

@sankofa  hell probably play now with this Felton drama…..but Jimmer is probably a worse defender than Felton i don't get why people want Jimmer he's not good his career game just happened to be against us but so is every other players career night

@Jerry Gee MIA wont happen. LA has Dantoni, lets not forget. And no star in their right mind would go to Chicago until they watch D.Rose play a full healthy season

@Jerry Gee  You know what.... you may have a point there and like I said you who believe in prayer NEED to say a prayer for felton. He will need it.

@OLDKNICK  Yeah... suddenly it doesn't look that bad. Of course it doesn't diminish his on-court antics or lack of consistent play. This is NYC; didn't he read about what happened to Plaxico Burress? And he was actually  at the top of his career, not, for example, rated as the worst point guard in the league.

@OLDKNICK  "hey, we're just letting you know.  We're gonna be looking at going elsewhere this offseason.  We have to look out for Melo's health and career. He's playing too many minutes and this team isn't a contender.  We wanna thank you guys for everything."

@Jerry Gee  Lol ain't gonna happen.  You don't force the guy signing your checks to hire personnel and then tell him how to run his business.

@KnickelusKnickleby . I was thinking the same thing. Remember when everyone was talking about Lin the same way and when he was giving a chance he shine. Maybe we can strike lighting in the bottle with this one too.

@Marvel  I've never seen a team leave the man WITH the ball as much as our lovely Knicks.

@Jerry Gee @Kvdaone I dont believe Melo is leaving. I think he will force the org to make moves. He will be included in everything. Melo has too much integrity to team hop for a ring. He forced his way here so he has to make it work

@Jerry Gee @Kvdaone I dont care! lol. They always gettin @ me for speaking truth but fact is fact. Even JR calls Melo fatboy so lets slay him too lol

@Jerry Gee @OLDKNICK @Chris  1st off if he does time which he probably will for possession of a loaded gun with intent to threaten, 2nd off in the Divorce his Wife will probably get half of everything. 

He should've sat out to get his Life in order his energy brought the Team down.

@barnaby87 @SheSaidSpikeWho  I feel like it was mostly garbage time. I agree though. No defense having guys can only play in spurts. At least he's a consistent shooter. The only way I'll get mad about who we bring in is if it is Chris Smith.
