If you missed Off-season Musings 1.0 check it out. Again, this is a quasi-open thread to discuss potential losses and additions. Same ground rules as last time, yeah? 1. Let’s stay away from pure rosterbation, shall we? With little cap space for major free agent signings and few assets worth trading, Chris Paul is not walking through that door. It’s not impossible I suppose, but the Knicks aren’t well positioned for that kind of deal. 2. Check out your idea before posting.
