I'm just in 'wait and see' mode. I've got May 14th circled on my calendar. Bring on the rumors, Kapitan! The #1 pick and 2 top-tier free agents - that's the goal. In the meantime, it would be nice to see what Frankie can do running the point (as opposed to playing off the ball), now that he's finally back from injury (he had missed two months). Regardless, I suspect he'll be moved in the off-season. Honestly, as is often the case this time of year, I'm more interested in the Western Conference playoff standings. Seeds 5-8 are separated by only 1 game!
Re the Knicks, I am very curious to see how their offseason goes. In some ways they finally seem to be on the right track regardless of the draft or free agents. Fizdale has worked a minor miracle on Mudiay, for one thing. This year's rookie class of Knox, Robinson, and Trier is really exciting. Dennis Smith is very talented and quite productive for someone so young at that spot. Frankie Smokes still interests me, as bad as he has been this season.
Then you have the draft: next year with Zion? There would no doubt be rumors of the NBA rigging things to get him there (just like getting Ewing there all those years ago)! But if they don't get him but rather someone like Barrett or Morant or Reddish or whoever else, it's still more talent.
And then of course the big question: Durant? Kyrie? Both? Someone else?
