2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Bucks

Let’s hope that the bad times keep on rolling!

Tonight is a good time to possibly scout Brandon Knight, who would be an intriguing option as a restricted free agent, as he is an actual two-way point guard. The first two-way point guard the Knicks would have since…Charlie Ward? Yikes. It’d cost a lot to get him, but I think he can be had for $12 million a year, and if the Knicks have about $22 million in cap space (which seems to be their most likely scenario, unless they waive JR Smith or if they decide to keep Shump) then they can sign him and another good $10 million player, like Wes Matthews (Matthews might take more than $10 million to get, though).

Let’s go! Knicks?
