New York Knicks: “The Knicks have an estimated $32 million in cap room to use this summer, enough to sign two superstars — in the ideal situation, James and Bosh — or to allocate in any number of other ways. They could sign a single star, perhaps Stoudemire or Johnson, and divide the rest among two or three players from the next tier, which includes Rudy Gay, Tyson Chandler, Raymond Felton, J. J. Redick, Travis Outlaw, Luke Ridnour and Mike Miller. They could preserve some cap room for 2011 and a potential run at Carmelo Anthony.” The Knicks’ best player is Danilo Gallanari (SF), which basically eliminates Gay. If you can underpay for Joe Johnson and add Amare at the PF, that’s a trio that would easily make the playoffs in the East. [NYT]
