Jason Kidd now a frontrunner for Knicks coach as search turns messy: source


good luck Kidd

who can we hire as his replacement? other then fitzdale


The Giannis thing has to be strong at this point.

Only other thing I can think of is Thibodeau is pushing for compensation and power that they don’t want to hand to him.


What do you mean by he Giannis thing? Do people think the Knicks are pursuing J-Kidd because Giannis would play for him?


A lot of people think Kidd still holds sway over Giannis, but it's kinda sill. If Kidd could deliver Giannis, some team would give him a 5/60 deal.

Disagree @ bold. Kuz is the guy that the FO has decided to love. Barring some sort of scandal or outrageous salary demand, he'll get his extension.

Hopefully his game will justify it, as well.

A) I'd love Clarkson here at the MLE and B) He's not even in the 2nd half of his career... why would this be him final big payday?


Clarkson is 28. Most guards peter out at 31/32.

I know there is Laker hate in the Bay Area, but thought this video was good to get a sense of it from a Warriors perspective.

Anything can happen with free agency, trades, cap and injuries but they definitely see similarities with the Clippers ascension and their own. It’s all about ownership and they seem to think Ballmer could run this league like their owners did.

I hate that they got West, it basically got Ballmer credibility among the players.

I agree with Jesus...Waiters is minimum...Dwight minimum or a little more cuz of his age. Morris would want multiple years IMO so he's out. Also with Dwight...he loves it here...$ is not a huge issue hence he gave up the rest of his salary this year for social injustice.

I think that’s one of the scenarios for sure. Kawhi may not be a full time player for the rest of his career and PG has his own issues. I took it more as they have the strong ownership in place and endless resources.

Your scenario is another possibility for sure. Just thought it was interesting to see the GSW media perspective.

Dwight was the minimum because he was rebuilding his career and didn't need the money.

With Dion, we'll see. If he has a great playoffs, that could create interest in him.

Don’t think teams are gonna show interest in Dion Waiters if that’s what you were trying to say, Waiters fit here is perfect he trusts Vogel and the coaching staff and he likes playing with LeBron.

So we both agree Jim it’s pretty obvious that Dion likes it here and teams will know that if they go after him he might not be the same person, our coaching staff know how to control players.

Who knows? I am not big on predicting the future. I just try to live in the moment. Next season will take care of itself, and we'll see who's on the roster.

Might not be much roster movement

1. LeBron
2. AD (PO)
3. DG
4. KCP (PO)
5. McGee
6. Kuzma
7. Caruso
8. Bradley (PO)
9. Rondo (PO)
10. THT

11. Dwight (Free agent who desesrves return)
12. Dudley (Free Agent who might return)
13. Q.Cook (unguaranteed contract)
14. Waiters (Might play his way to a roster spot next year)
15. JR

Hopefully Rondo opts out. I dont see McGee/Bradley/KCP opting out with the market uncertainity. Bradley/Cook/1st used in a 3 for 1 trade to open roster spots.

Cook is a very good Teammate. He has a bond with LeBron and AD. Too bad he doesn’t fit in to what we are trying to do.

If he was hitting 3's at 44%, he'd fit perfectly.

LG Cap experts. What would a Kuzma extension look like? 4 years 48m, like what Clarkson got? So we’ll have him for the next 5 years. I guess it works because Danny Green will be off the books after next season.

McGee is not going anywhere, unless we are suffering next mid season. I’m afraid that the friendships Rondo and Cook have with the team might hinder us moving on from them. Although LeBron did okay DWade getting traded to Miami.

I’m on the fence about moving Green. He is a savvy veteran with a ton of playoff experience. He’s just not living up to his 3&D calling card.

i am in the same boat. He will be making 15.3m and could net a guy making 20m

dont know who that guy is tough.

Based on performance, you can debate whether Kuz is worth keeping around. After a surprising rookie season, he's been on a downward trend. For the past two years, he's been a below-average NBA player.. However, he and his people might still see him as a potential star.

The question is whether one team out there will see something in him to make a big offer, a la Julius Randle.

Not sure the Lakers will rush to extend him and tie up cap space. I think they'll wait to see what he does next season.

If I had to guess, I'd say the roster that begins next season won't be significantly different than the roster that ends this season.
