It’s a done deal. Tyson Chandler will be joining the Knicks.
Per Howard Beck,
Knicks’ trades are complete. It’s a 3-team deal with Dallas and Washington. New York sends Turiaf, 2013 2nd-round pick and cash to Wizards.
Today, at 2PM, free-agency will officially begin, and according to multiple outlets, Tyson Chandler is 98% sure he will become a New York Knickerbocker.
This news came as a remarkable surprise to most Knicks fans, because as recently as this yesterday morning, no one saw this coming; we were still looking at the addition of Grant Hill to be the highlight of this year’s offseason, in hopes of acquiring Chris Paul next year. However, that all changed quickly.
As we head into the upcoming free-agency period, and season, with Glen Grunwald as the Knicks’ general manager, let’s take a minute to appreciate everything Donnie Walsh did for the Knicks, and show how important smart roster management is.
The rumors are flying, and today, it has been reported that Chris Paul’s agent, Leon Rose, informed the Hornets that Paul would like a trade to New York.
I had to have some fun with the news, so here’s a little image.
Well, it wasn’t quite a “nuclear winter”, but we got pretty close. To be fair, the CBA has not officially been signed, but we currently have a tentative agreement between both parties that is expected to be passed.
With the lockout finally on the heels of being lifted, Knick fans can finally look forward to the trades and signings that are part of a typical NBA offseason. Fans are already targeting certain guys and are going to work on ESPN’s trade machine in hopes of upgrading the roster.
It’s been a while since we’ve had some basketball, let alone some positive news. So, without further adieu, here is a little image I made for you Knicks fans!
After 149 depressing, painful, NBA-less days, the NBA has reached a tentative agreement with the players to end the lockout.
The “Where Nothing Happens” image has received an incredible response, so I thought I would print some shirts up! I kept it simple by placing the image on a high-quality, ash-grey t-shirt.
Due to the current lockout, instead of watching the first full season with Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire on the Knicks, we are left to imagine what could have been. Many, including myself, have anticipated this season to be one of the Knicks’ more successful years in more than a decade.
Amongst many topics that have risen to the forefront during the lockout is that of the perceived competitive advantage that large market has over small markets. If you follow me on Twitter, @AzazNYK, you probably saw my rant disparaging this on Monday. It befuddles me that making the game balanced has become a major hang-up in the CBA negotiations, when if the issue is examined closer, it is evident that smart management trumps everything in the NBA.
