Free Will

The Knicks roster looks to be about fully assembled. While very happy with the Tyson signing for the long term, our roster has some holes in the roster mostly due to lack of depth, mostly in the 2,3 & 4 spot. We still have a 2.5 mill midlevel exception to dangle, with less than desirable talent left out there to fill our needs.

In the meantime, there is a certain hybrid guard/forward who is over in China now stuck in a contract but according to news can be bought out for 500k. Yes, he is a restricted free agent, and yes the Nuggets say they would like to seal him long term, but he can tell the Nuggets he won't re-sign if they match an offer and basically force his way to the Knicks one way or another. He could really come in and start at the 2 now, and/or back up Melo and Amare, while having already shown he has good on-court chemistry with Amare (something we still haven't quite seen with Melo yet) DWTDD, Fields. He's a good 2nd offensive option, when either Melo or Amare is on the bench. Will's also a vastly underrated defender both on the perimeter and on the post. And finally, his twitter page still has NY, NY as the location.

So stop shopping around for Evans or Nachbar, save the midlevel, show some loyalty of which you've blatantly disregarded with the mishandling of Extra E, and work the back channels to get Will the Thrill back in NY where he belongs.
