So heres where we stand at the moment... Old man Billups and Jered Jeffries have got to go. We need an athletic, defensive minded, center who can play 30+ to compliment Amare and a point guard who can create, run the offense, and defend.
Center Solution -
First Choice: Serge Ibaka (Thunder) - The guy is an athletic freak who can rebound and block like nobodies business. He is getting a little bit of an offensive touch the more he plays and has an insane motor. Still very young.
Point Guard Solution -
First Choice: Jose Calderon (Raptors) - Possibly one of the most underrated point guards in the league. He manages to regularly put up 10-15 assists a game working with little no help in Toronto. Not only that, but he can knock down the open three and is a very quick defender.
Backup Options: Aaron Brooks, Rodney Stuckey, Ramon Sessions - none are as ideal as Calderon, but all of them would fit in very well with the team. New York has been chasing Sessions for the past three seasons, so it would make sense for them to pursue him yet again this offseason. Aaron Brooks currently plays for the Suns, who have Nash and Dragic, so they wouldnt be hurt to badly to part ways with him. He can shoot the three, get to the basket, and knows how to run an offense. Stuckey has been held back by playing with the corpse of the Pistons. Put with talent, and when he isnt depended on for offense, he can do big things.
Other Notable Additions:
Tony Allen or James Harden - Preferably Tony Allen, but Harden would fit in well too. Tony Allen is an elite defender who can create turnovers with the best of them. The Knicks have to have a lock down low post and perimeter defender to be elite. He isnt a slouch on offense either, which often gets overlooked. If Allen were acquired, that allows Landry Fields to come off the Bench and spell Melo or Allen. Harden is more of a scorer, but would excel in the offense, especially paired with Melo. He is unselfish, plays above average defense, and is an excellent role player.
