In more good news, it's official: We are signing Steve Mills, the guy who stonewalled a previous GM candidate from hiring his own people and gave Ron Baker the full MLE and a player option, to a multi-year deal as team president. And we're giving up a second round pick for the vice president of the Sacramento Kings.

Go New York go New York go.

Considering the string of established Hall of Fame basketball minds that the Dolan Knicks have ignored, sabotaged, chewed up and spit out, does it really matter if Perry is well regarded at this moment in time? Especially when you know he's not allowed to bring in his own people or have a shred of independence (as we learned from Griffen backing out)?

The cap is 100% ****ed for the next 2-3 years. They handcuffed his job in the week before they hired him with the THJ and Baker contracts. Unless he came in with some sort of agreement that his job is to draft and draft only, or he agreed to become one of Dolan's bitches, he's gone in 3 years. 

It's nuts that the Knicks had all the right reasons to fire Phil and then completely went the wrong way with the firing and everything after it. This is setting up to be exactly like the Isiah era minus the sexual harassment.

The Baker contract is for $8.9 mil and he will opt out after next season it literally has zero point zero effect on our cap situation

Did they rehire Anucha Browne too?

Adam Silver for as much as he gets blown by all the, ahem, "progressives" allowing this Mills and Isiah clown show to continue is embarrassing.  Get a hold of your league man.

Perry wanted 1. out of Sacramento and 2. a pile of money. Being a powerless but well-paid figurehead in NY is not the worst thing in the world for him.

Rather bizarre that Dolan allows one of his franchises, the Rangers,  to be run mostly professionally and seriously while the other is a clown car being driven by a dry drunk clown, Dolan himself,   forever. Pile in the back, Scott.  

Though in fairness the NBA is basically 30 or  so clown cars funded by TV contracts that are about to be radically reduced.Not sure how this business model continues to work. The NBA and the owners continue to tout the cap as this wonderful thing.All it does is suppress salaries, and also forces teams to pay otherwise JAGs pile of money,  But you cannot have 3/4s of the NBA knowing on he day after the draft they have no shot for years.  If you do not have a few superstars you are the Washington Generals anyway playing exhibition games for months except without the confetti. The TV ratings spare the Finals are awful, and ABC/ESPN is bleeding money. Simply in this craziness the Knick really aren't even out of the ordinary.

There's no way Dolan is dry. No way.

1. The defensive 3 seconds rule has to go 2. Players have to be forced to stay in college til they are juniors or 3 years out of high school 3. Replacement refs please.  The current refs in the NBA are all corrupt and on Vegas's payroll

You and Stephen A Smith already built Dennis Smith a wing in hall of fame

I think this is the first time I've commented on him. But sure, okay. Sounds good.

The have a developmental league, but they aren't willing to fully commit. May be that business model doesn't much work either. Cheaper to have the NCAA develop their stars, even if for only a year. As a parent paying serious $ for a college student, don't really get why basketball players, among all sports, have some special reason to go or not really go to school for one season. And really what is the point of any of their rules if Calipari, Bob Huggins and Pititno and their ilk aren't banned from coaching.

why isn't frenchy playing in the summer league ?  is he hurt ?

Injured his knee in his first practice and it's been sore since. Knicks have kept specifics bottled up.

It's honestly terrifying, because everyone else drafted in the top ten has looked ******* awesome in Vegas. Getting the one guy that didn't pan out in this lottery would be the Knickiest Knick thing ever. Smith has hands down looked like the best player drafted outside the top 3 and it's not even close to be honest. The dude is intense as all hell.

 Ntilikina got hurt in the final game of the French league championship.

FYI, Smith has a healed torn ACL. Hes looked great, no question, but one awkward landing on his dunks and he is gone for season.

I get it, but I'm just going off of the assumption that everything is going to be bad all the time now.

Only bottom of the barrel talent goes to the NBDL.  Langston friggin Galloway is considered an elite NBDLer
