Andrea BargnaniKnicks

Player Profile: Andrea Bargnani

Contract: Two years, $23.3 million remaining. Early Termination Option (ETO) after the 2012-13 season.

Acquisition Details: Acquired in a trade with the Toronto Raptors in July, 2013, in exchange for Steve Novak, Marcus Camby, Quentin Richardson, a first-round pick in 2016 and second-round picks in 2014 and 2017.

What to Expect Offensively: No matter what he does for the Knicks, some will always view Bargnani as a colossal bust, the top overall pick in the 2006 NBA Draft who never lived up to his potential. Unfair or not, though, he certainly hasn’t lived up to expectations. But perhaps those expectations were unfair – or at least deeply flawed – from the start. Bargnani was initially billed as a center, but he’s more a Rip Hamilton-style wing, with a highly effective mid-range game. He’s also been hyped as a three-point shooter, but he’s never shot better than 40% from beyond the arc and that was way back in the 2008-09 season. (In recent years he’s been much closer to 30%., so the Knicks had better hope that some quality time with their shot-guru, Dave Hopla, will pay dividends for Bargs.)

Naturally, the most important consideration for evaluating any Knick player nowadays is, “how well does he complement Carmelo Anthony, though?” If Bargs is healthy, that answer would seem to be “pretty damned well.” His ability to step out to 12-to-18 feet should help pull bigger defenders away from the basket and give Anthony more room to operate, and he Bargs, in theory, should be an extremely effective pick-and-roll or pick-and-pop partner for either ‘Melo or the Knick guards.

Interestingly, Mike Woodson has been using Bargs and ‘Melo as his starting forwards for most of training camp which has raised more than a few eyebrows around the league. After all, Anthony led the league last year in scoring while primarily playing the four, so why move him back to small forward to accommodate the new guy? But such sentiment may be over-stated. In all likelihood, ‘Melo will be positioned much as he was last year on the offensive end, with Bargnani serving more as a traditional three. But on defense, however, Bargnani will be asked to guard the bigger player. Woodson may also experiment with other combinations, possibly even using Bargs as a nominal center when the Knicks opt to go small.

All of this assumes that Bargnani will stay healthy for a decent stretch of the regular season – something he’s been unable in recent years. The Italian appeared in just 35 games last year and 31 the year before that, and his off-season workouts were limited by a bout of pneumonia.

What to Expect Defensively: Bargnani’s reputation as a total sieve on defense may not be entirely accurate, either. Some basketball analysts, including Matt Moore of CBS Sports, have crunched the numbers and suggested that Bargs is actually a pretty good one-on-one defender in the low post. While that’s potentially great news for the Knicks, any aptitude for individual defense is canceled out by the fact that Bargnani’s help defense can best be described as “inept.” The Knicks will probably be satisfied if Bargs can get in the way of David West, Kevin Garnett and Carlos Boozer a bit and leave the heavy lifting to Tyson Chandler, Metta World Peace and Iman Shumpert.

Bargnani has never been much of a rebounder (career-high 6.2 rpg back in 2009-10) or a shot-blocker, either, for what it’s worth.

Kinda Sorta Maybe Reasonable Season Prediction: Bargnani starts off the season in the starting lineup, but the Knicks’ front-court depth and extensive injury histories (I’m looking at you Amar’e Stoudemire, Kenyon Martin and Tyson Chandler) forces New York to go small with Metta or J.R. Smith at the three. If Woodson is smart, Bargs will average in the neighborhood of 25 minutes per game, a reduced workload helping him stay healthy or, at a minimum, healthier than he’s been in recent years. He will manage to appear in 70 games and working with Hopla helps him regain his long-range shooting touch. Look for averages of roughly 11.0 PPG, 3.9 RPG, 2.1 APG, .3 SPG, 0.8 BPG, 42.1 FG% and 85.3 FT %.

Oh, and a healthy dose of “That’s Amore” over the MSG public address system.

      • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

        • KnicksTape

          yeah then we don’t have those two. I hear you tho I wanted nate too but grunwald prolly didn’t even call.

  • KnicksTape

    dike diogu need to go

  • Boberto

    “Sorry Nate, we dont want u. We want the fatass Bumno Udrih”

    -Glen Bumwald

  • danny55885588

    Tim brickway jr…..lol !!! This ni99@ 5- 13.

  • KnicksTape

    nate prolly would’ve came for vet. min but he grunwald didn’t even call him.

    • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

      hell yeah on a 1 yr deal. this team woulda made him look good then he coulda signed a long deal and been paid

      • KnicksTape

        especially melo and company would’ve convinced him. Nate was putting knicks pics as throwback thursday on instagram. Pretty much putting out hints

  • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

    well our regular guys look good, after that….not so much

  • KnicksTape

    toronto fans want 100 points so they get free pizza or some shit

    • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

      they’re in canada, they prolly get a free bag of pretzels or some other weird shit lmao

      • KnicksTape

  • Boberto

    • KnicksTape

      grunwald……

    • Boberto

      nigga is fat as fuck i told u lmaoo

  • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

    definitely shoulda kept barron too…he’s better than any of the other bums we invited to camp

    • Knickels n Dimes

      Barron could drop 50 on all those big men

    • Boberto

      yea we shoulda kept Earl The herb Barron he was decent

      • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

        earl the dirty pearl

  • KnicksTape

    no wonder grunwald got demoted to bitch boy

    • NBAHatesNYK

      hell yeah

  • NBAHatesNYK

  • NBAHatesNYK

    metta was looking good though

  • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

    beno was alright when he wasn’t playing with the scrubs

    • NBAHatesNYK

      yeah he like shump

      • Knickels n Dimes

        he like who?

        • NBAHatesNYK

          shumpert? ninja were u been?

          • Knickels n Dimes

            no, I know who Shump is, I was just makin sure u actually meant that…

          • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

            he meant he likes playing with shump, not that he plays like him

          • Knickels n Dimes

            oh hoho

          • NBAHatesNYK

            I ment with scrubs tho

  • Knickels n Dimes

    can we cut and niggas durin pre-season? cuz some of these niggas got to go…

    • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

      lmao yeah we have to cut them during preseason

    • NBAHatesNYK

      I think so

  • NBAHatesNYK

    diisqus suck for live games comments

  • Boberto

    Glen Bumwald shoulda been like fuck Pablo and Udrih, and signed Nate the Great

    • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

      udrih signed for the vet min…we used the exception on pablo & metta

  • NBAHatesNYK

    how the hell did melo get three steals

    • KnicksTape

      landry fields

      • NBAHatesNYK

        lmao

  • NBAHatesNYK

    I can see consistency wil be a problem this year

    • KnicksTape

      woody needs to stop fucking around

    • DJ Mbenga da GOAT

      i can see woodson is gonna fxck up the lineups all season too

  • Boberto

    We need JR back asap

  • KnicksTape

    yo JVG coming back? I don’t think woodson gonna work out

  • KnicksTape

    JVG as coach and Phil as pres/gm would be ideal

    • Boberto

      JVG coach, Grunfield as GM

      • KnicksTape

        i don’t think he’s gonna come back..grunfield

  • godsent224

    Yall blaming Woodson for the third string losing a game. smh

    • KnicksTape

      man you overreact our posts way too much lol

    • Boberto

      nah i blame Beno Udrih and Dike Diugu the Bill Walker wannabe. Beno looks mad fat

    • NBAHatesNYK

      don’t rain on our perade foo

  • Knickels n Dimes

    I wish we got Pargo instead of that fat fuck…

    • KnicksTape

      pargo aint all that tho

      • Gate-7-

        not at all

  • NBAHatesNYK

    im out

    • KnicksTape

      pce

  • Boberto

    Beno Udrih, the fattest PG alive

    • KnicksTape

      lol nah gotta be others

    • Knickels n Dimes

      at least he didn’t break Felton’s record…

  • KnicksTape

    woody got 18 days to figure it out

  • Back The Money Truck up….

    Pass that…..
    The Ball??
    Nah,Nigguh the Weed!

    -Jr. Smith

    • KnicksTape

      “pass the powder no not that powder”

      • Back The Money Truck up….

        Lmao….

    • Knickels n Dimes

      “haha”, it gets more funnier the 30th time…

  • KnicksTape

    feel like woody gonna fuck around and start prigs at sg until JR his god child returns

  • Knickels n Dimes

    Donte Green, Dajuan summers, Tyrus Thomas should all get a look

    • KnicksTape

      bums

      • Knickels n Dimes

        oh cuz Diogu, Powell and Aldrich are potential all stars right?

        • KnicksTape

          nah either way none of them gonna play anyway

          • Knickels n Dimes

            thats wat u think…

      • Back The Money Truck up….

        Super Bums!

    • godsent224

      Ithink we should give Tyrus a look

      • KnicksTape

        guy who couldn’t last with the bobcats? yeah

        • Knickels n Dimes

          he got amnestied, unlike all those other scrubs who got cut

          • KnicksTape

            he average 4ppg per game for them tho that’s y he got amnestied cause he suck

          • Knickels n Dimes

            and wat did Diougu, Powell, Aldrich averag last year? 5,6 ,7?

          • KnicksTape

            their bums I’ve already said it

          • Knickels n Dimes

            thats not my point, I’m sayin the guys I listed are bette then the guys we got now

          • KnicksTape

            does it matter tho cause those bums and the bums you listed are only gonna play in preseason. When season starts they’ll get DNP

          • Knickels n Dimes

            then whos our backup big men then?

        • NYC IS THE BEST

          Bargnani couldnt last witht he raptors. And he’s nice

          • KnicksTape

            injury tho when barg was healthy he produced not tyrus

          • NYC IS THE BEST

            Tyrus had many injuries too

          • KnicksTape

            when healthy did he produced tho?

          • NYC IS THE BEST

            he was decent. Was always a good shot blocker

  • KnicksTape

    feels like we gonna end up same way as last season, maybe a lil further

  • NYC IS THE BEST

    We dont even need jr bricks with my son Tim HArdaway jr. Trade JR and Chandler for a better center. OR JR and felton for a better PG

    • Knickels n Dimes

      word

    • godsent224

      Hardaway is nice but he aint ready to carry that role yet.

      • NYC IS THE BEST

        How u know? We didnt give him a chance yet

        • godsent224

          You think teams would of came back on us like that these last two games if JR was in there instead of Hardaway?

    • KnicksTape

      I wanted hardaway and called the pick. I think he’ll eventually take over SG proly not with Woody as coach since he loves JR like his own child.

      • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

        “I wanted hardaway and called the pick.” Must you say this every time THJr is mentioned? lol

        • KnicksTape

          lol relax I only said twice letting niggas know

      • NYC IS THE BEST

        Ni99a I called the pick

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    We really aint do ish on our rebounding problem this off season lol

    • KnicksTape

      I know man lol and we’re a jump shooting team we gonna be in trouble when they don’t fall

    • NYC IS THE BEST

      Time to trade jr

  • Back The Money Truck up….

    The Chicago game will NOT be easy….Ninjas gotta step their Shiit up!

    • NYC IS THE BEST

      Yup. Thankfully we wont have JR for that game

      • Back The Money Truck up….

        Why u say that?

        • NYC IS THE BEST

          Because JR be bumming

  • NYC IS THE BEST

    Dont try to blame my son THJ. First game they came back because JR BRicks’ brother was bumming on the court. Then today we never built a huge lead on the raps, and Acy was eating. Diogu and powell are bums

  • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

    We should look at Daniel Orton, wouldn’t hurt lol

    • NYC IS THE BEST

      true

    • KnicksTape

      dude who got cut by thunder?

      • Ciroc_NesBoogie718

        yea

  • KnicksTape

    daniel orton been avg 2 rbs last 2 years 10 min per game

    • NYC IS THE BEST

      so what. he’s better than diogu and powell. U acting like we could pick up Larry Sanders

      • KnicksTape

        I didn’t said anything bad tho relax putting out stats

  • NYC IS THE BEST

    We should trade JR and Felton for Jeff Teague

  • NYC IS THE BEST

    And dumb@$$ woodson keep starting Prig. Dumb@$$ doesnt realize that Shump needs to be starting

      • nylsjd

        lol you need to get a life… sorry that many people chose to dislike your comment

        • nylsjd

          i’ll go add to them right now though to show you it wasn’t me…. poor poet lmao

          • Knicks_11ThePoet

            do i give a fxck? matter in fact i disliked it myself.

            ur just doing it because i exposed u agian

          • nylsjd

            lmao you exposed me as what? you the one who tried to call out boberto yesterday and got put in your place…. again

          • Knicks_11ThePoet

            nobody has ever put me in my place… idk what u are saying? i never called out boberto matter in fact i was the one who exposed him to this board. i exposed him that he was indian.

          • nylsjd

            he talks about being indian all of the time lol… “matter of fact” idk why you’re so obsessed with trying to impress everyone on here. you’re allowed to just be peaceful and talk sports, you don’t need to try and insult everyone. talk about thinking you’re better than everyone else… smh

          • Knicks_11ThePoet

            are u doing reverse psychology to me or something?

            u just explained what u do on here… smh.

          • nylsjd

            i never insult anyone, that’s a good try though. you always go around trying to start shit with people for no reason. you try to act like you’re all special, when there’s no need to do that. it’s crazy man. you need validation from anonymous people on the internet. just chill out, buddy. no one seriously makes fun of you. you gotta stop taking things so seriously

          • Knicks_11ThePoet

            just let it

            be

          • nylsjd

            for sure. but just chill out with trying to make fun of people. especially when it comes to making stupid comments about me. i never did anything to you, so chill out with that.

          • Knicks_11ThePoet

            make fun?? i never do that… i make ppl angry .. sure, but i never poke fun at them.

            i only do that when ppl start to make fun of me..

          • nylsjd

            lmao ok… i’ve never said shit to you but you always trying to come at me. it’s become a little creepy.

          • LebronDaDon-datta

            Kerley been better than Hill, shouldn’t surprise me but he is alrightt.. Idk Pitt has good lbs, cbs & safeties. Jennings could get some play if Ap aint the same.. Dont expect much from Kerley, yet he should b featured in the passing game so tough 1.. hhaaha idk godluck amigoo

          • nylsjd

            True… i’m in a PPR league so it changes it a bit, but I’ll prob roll with Jennings with Cassell playing.
