Knicks not ruling out Fredette February 25th, 2014 12:31 pm 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.

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 sankofa 5pts 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. Kvdaone 5pts the Knicks should bring in Bill Belichick Kvdaone 5pts Fredette would be a good pick up offensively. bklyndude 5pts 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. Simone Camouche 5pts 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. Mets0987 5pts I'm in school on knicksblog bored asf. Mets0987 5pts He can probably make a shot, when Melo passes the ball. onewhoknix 5pts 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. rgm891 5pts 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. SheSaidSpikeWho 5pts 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. barnaby87 5pts 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. rgm891 5pts 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. KnickelusKnickleby 5pts watch Fredette come in and pull a J Lin we'll make playoffs based on a 20-4 Run Marvel 5pts would erase the felton story.. and woodson,,, king switch, king leave ya man for no reason is the defensive problem.. KnickelusKnickleby 5pts We all knew this was coming...Welcome Home Fredette join the 3 point barrage of Chucking. We all know he's coming here SheSaidSpikeWho 5pts Lol only TKB will go an entire weekend without a thread and then give us 4 before 1:00 pm. I love you, TKB. MeloStat301 5pts SMH. Mike 5pts new knicks meme:worried about defense----------------------------------cuts ron artest mike23 5pts Get it done knicks, worry about the defensive player with the other open spot, Who is this great defender they would be interested in bringing in? onewhoknix 5pts One solid defender that you may add isn't going to do jack. The problem is internal. You have a 'defensive coach' that has been called out by Hawks fans and now Knicks fans for years on not knowing how to defend the pick and roll. Mike 5pts hometown kid, great shooter, just lit up the garden...the knicks should be the first team on the phone was his agent.there's really no reason not to sign him. C0P0 5pts Should be running to his house. Marvel 5pts He would be a no brainer from a PR standpoint.. honestly it shouldn't be a question at all for the Gm.. from a basketball aspect. yes, must pair him with shump /murry a must sign imo. knickstape 5pts @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 Kvdaone 5pts @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 Kvdaone 5pts @Jerry Gee @Kvdaone lol. The walkin cheese burger Simone Camouche 5pts @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. Chris 5pts @Jerry Gee how do you know that? Mets0987 5pts Some girls could be a bitc* SheSaidSpikeWho 5pts @Jerry Gee Yup. barnaby87 5pts @Jerry Gee JVG wants no part of this mess SheSaidSpikeWho 5pts @barnaby87 Novak sat on the bench for the most part though lol. M&M; Consultants 5pts @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. SheSaidSpikeWho 5pts @Marvel I've never seen a team leave the man WITH the ball as much as our lovely Knicks. I'm adding: King DoubleForNoReason SheSaidSpikeWho 5pts @Mike Lol. mike23 5pts @onewhoknix exactly, Woodson not helping this team, might as well give an assistant an opportunity rest of the season but let them know the knicks are going to look for a new coach after the season so there is no illusion that they would be kept on even if the knicks played well. Philosophy changes are needed as this season isn't getting any better with Woodson around. Lee Lewin 5pts @Marvel we have a gm? i haven't heard him speak in FOREVER Kvdaone 5pts @Jerry Gee @Kvdaone which fatboy? Felton or Melo barnaby87 5pts @SheSaidSpikeWho @barnaby87Averaged 15-20 minutes/game as a knick. That's all we need from the guy really. barnaby87 5pts @Jerry Gee @barnaby87LOL that's true though onewhoknix 5pts @mike23 @onewhoknix You can completely tell that Tyson has quit for weeks now on trying to plug every single hole on this sinking ship we call defense. Kvdaone 5pts @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 Kvdaone 5pts @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 KnickelusKnickleby 5pts @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. SheSaidSpikeWho 5pts @Jerry Gee @SheSaidSpikeWho Lol both rgm891 5pts @Jerry Gee @SheSaidSpikeWho Both lmaooo SheSaidSpikeWho 5pts @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.
