It's obvious that we're going to need a point guard to man this ship. I doubt Amare or Melo gets traded by next year. We dont have much to trade so the chances are that our pg will come from free agency with the mid-level. Lets take a look at a few of unrestricted pgs...
Steve Nash, Phoenix Suns – $11.7 million – Unrestricted
Raymond Felton, Portland Trail Blazers – $7.6 million – Unrestricted
Kirk Hinrich, Atlanta Hawks – $8.0 million – Unrestricted
Jason Kidd, Dallas Mavericks – $8.6 million – Unrestricted
Andre Miller, Denver Nuggets – $7.8 million – Unrestricted
Chauncey Billups, L.A. Clippers – $2.0 million – Unrestricted
Leandro Barbosa, Toronto Raptors – $7.6 million – Unrestricted
Goran Dragic, Houston Rockets – $2.1 million – Unrestricted
Baron Davis, New York Knicks – $1.4 million – Unrestricted
It's an interesting bunch of guys to say the least. Easily we can probably mark a couple more off of this list. Felton wont be coming back and neither will Billups or Kidd.
Steve Nash has been on our wishlist for toooooooo long, what makes this year any different? He's up in age but i haven't seen much of a decline. He would probably make us a contender right away but maybe it just was never meant to be.
You guys can speculate on the other guys but my first choice is Andre Miller. He's not happy coming off the bench in Denver and would love to start on a team like the Knicks. He has been extremely underrated his entire career. He has also been remarkably healthy his entire career. He is beyond crafty with the basketball and shoots a high percentage. He's getting up in age but can still play with the best of them. He simply knows how to play this game and backs down from no one. He can also throw the opp and finish at the rim. No he's not the quickest guy and can't shoot the 3 ball, but I for one have seen enough 3point shots at the Garden. If Nash still isn't ready to finally put on a Knicks Uniform, I say give Andre Miller a two-year deal and give him a spin.
Some of you may be skeptical of him but understand that he has an old-mans game and it isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
