Today, the New York Knicks have announced that Jon Shurna, Oscar Bellfield, Mychel Thompson and Henry Sims have all been cut, leaving Chris Copeland as the lucky one to make the Knicks’ opening day 15-man roster.
Here’s the full 15-man roster:
The Knicks’ salaries this year will total $79,687,577, a little more than $21.5 million over the NBA’s league-mandated salary cap. If you’re looking at this list and wondering, “wait, is Renaldo Balkman still on the Knicks?” The answer is no. He’s no longer on the Knicks, but his salary will be included on the Knicks’ books, so it’s necessary to include him.
This should be a really fun year, I mean how many teams can put together a lineup consisting of Pablo Prigioni, JR Smith, Chris Copeland, Steve Novak and Rasheed Wallace?!?!
