My question is what is the end game taking this job? Was this the best FO job available? Can he possibly even expect to overturn the damage they've already inflicted for the next few years?

Best case scenario here is contention in a few years. They have so many screw ups it's crazy.


They must be paying him an arm leg torso head other arm and other leg.

Phil is too old to turn around the Knicks.

The Knicks are probably the only team desperate enough to meet all his demands. He'll bring credibility to the team and will hopefully help attract a decent coach and not another yes man.

The real question is, does he have the authority to rule over Dolan? That article says Dolan still wants in on decisions.

If you are a laker fan and do not already own a voodoo doll of him that you stab daily, then you are doing it wrong.

See at least the Celtics have good owners and front office people.

I'm rooting for a Melo to the Bulls deal.

i honestly don't see it happening. bulls have not gotten a big free agent in.... ever.

Same here, Melo deserves good teammates. And Melo will be forced to play some D under coach Thibs

Melo to the bulls would be great.
Chance to see if he really is a black hole, or just been on bad teams.
kinda feel bad for him in a way.

Also, anything that makes more teams in the east good, is better for the NBA.
Hopefully some fringe stars in the mid seeded west go east like Curry.
He'd probably break his ankle on the way there though

Would rather see Melo leave for a team ready to contend (like the Bulls). Knicks are going to need too much time to get back no matter who is running the FO.

Plus, withh Dolan still in the picture who knows... he could still impede any progress that Phil might try to make.

Why not just find a three point shooter then if you think that is what they need. Would be much cheaper than Melo

i think he'd fit pretty well. it seems like he would fill in the missing void offensively as well as contribute to strengths already existing.

he would have to pick up the 1 thing he lacks which is rotation/help team defense, but i think he'd get better under the head coach as a defensive player

This move makes absolutely no sense.

I know phil has always wanted to coach the Knicks since his days of playing. Maybe this is one thing on his bucket list is to be involved in the knicks somehow before he kicks the bucket.

It seems strange because Phil usually takes over teams with good talent. You would think he would be more interested in say the Rockets ( barring location). I dont see any way the Lakers will ever get Phil again after the way they botched that hiring. Someone needs to call in the mob and retire Kobe and Nash.

meh, phil will bring credibility to the team and he has a chit ton of cap space to work with. i'm sure next year there's gonna be a huge overturn and they'll absolutely suck, but they'll clear up cap space and get a good draft pick. any coach he hires will probably run his system if i had to guess, so it shouldn't be a bad deal.


if this deal goes through, the knicks might be bake (two or three years from now).
