Over the next four years, 35% of the Knicks cap flexibility is tied up in the Noah & Hardaway contracts.

The Bulls look like geniuses compared to the Knicks.

This smells like Steve Mills making a move to impress Dolan.....way to go.

The Hardaway signing felt like the episode of The Big Bang Theory when Leonard bought a time machine.

To be fair, THJ can put the ball in the hoop in variety of ways, has shown improvement on defense, and young/injury free

If he turns out like CJ McCollum, it's a great contract

In theory yes but he's not a 70 million dollar man, Iam not upset at the signing but that price tag to a player you traded away is shocking, Allan Crabb type shocking

Ah fair enough. Trying to be optimistic

Looking at the contracts so far for sgs, Id agree its high. Prolly should be closer to what waiters got

There's no point in being a Knicks fan with James Dolan and his puppets Steve Mills & Allan Houston in charge. Dolan is the WORST owner in professional sports....what a disgrace.....no light at the end of the tunnel.

No one from the front office bothered to show up at Hardaway Jr.'s press conference. What a f-n joke.

It's a tough call. Sterling's bigotry makes him the worse person, but from all accounts, Dolan's hardly a paragon of grace and virtue either (though it seems he's at least not comfortably racist). Additionally, Sterling is gone and Dolan is still around, holding back a once-proud franchise that is a charter member of the BAA/NBA and the biggest market in the league and country. It's hard to pick against the racist in a competition of the worst, but since he's still an owner and a terrible one at that, Dolan "wins" by default.

So now most of the Knicks cap space is tied up with Hardaway, Ron Baker & Noah......wonderful.

2 years, 8.9mil for Baker - you can't make this stuff up, Andrew.......If I wasn't a Knick fan, I'd laugh at how inept the front office is. It's not about establishing a consistent winning culture - it's about cronyism. You think any GM (or top free agent) worth a damn wants to come here and deal with the toxic culture at the Garden? So the franchise is stuck with Steve Mills.

I just had to look up Ron Baker to see who that was, which I guess serves as an apt appraisal of that signing.

Sounds like he's a decent hire by his own merits, but won't have an opportunity to have a positive impact.

Exactly, because Mills has final say on all basketball decisions. So it'll be business as usual at the Garden. That's why Griffin said no thanks.

Carmelo Anthony, Rival Teams Dismayed By Knicks Pulling Him From Trade Talks

The New York Knicks' decision to pull Carmelo Anthony off the trade block has led all sides to be frustrated. The Knicks were involved in four-team trade talks with Anthony expected to be dealt to the Houston Rockets.

Steve Mills is having second thoughts about a trade now that they're on the verge of hiring Scott Perry as general manager. Mills wants to give Perry a chance to settle into his new job before a decision is made on Anthony.

"That's crazy," a source told the News. "From what I understand Carmelo is under the belief that he's going to the Rockets. That's what the Knicks have been telling us; that they're trading him. I can't imagine that after all he went though last season with Phil (Jackson) he's happy with this."

Anthony agreed to waive his no-trade clause for the Rockets and has been preparing for that move for nearly two weeks.

Anthony is said to be dismayed over the events of the past 24 hours.

According to a source, Anthony went to the Knicks prior to the NBA Draft and requested a buyout. With that request denied, Phil Jackson said they would try to accommodate a trade.


Wow. That's really bush league.

Look, say what you will about Melo, it's not as though there aren't legitimate criticisms that you can make about his game. However, he's a 14-year veteran who's been a very good player in the league, a multi-time All-Star and key player for Team USA. He's endured tough seasons and dysfunction with the Knicks, and done as much he can, given his abilities. He's earned the right to be treated with a lot more respect than that.

It's in the Knicks' best interests to do so, too. It's not a good look, and only adds to a dysfunctional, toxic atmosphere. Building a winning team requires good moves, sure, but it helps to be a first class organisation where morale is high, and top players, coaches, and front office personnel want to go. Not to get into the comparisons again, but it's a similar situation in Chicago. Neither team's front office carries itself well, or cultivates a positive culture. Things like this simply do not help.

Even after shit hit the fan with Phil Jackson, it's just continuing to pile up again. I think the whole giving Perry "a chance to settle into his new job" is a bullshit excuse. What does it matter if, as Jeffx said above, Mills will make the final decision anyway? Or maybe I'm just salty because it would've been nice to have Melo complete the "Super Team" Rockets.

I am just FED-UP past the limit with this organization. Instead of hiring knowledgeable basketball people, the lowlife, POS scumbag owner hires his f-n cronies. Steve Mills has final say over personnel decisions, and we've seen what a wonderful job he's done. Nothing's ever going to change at MSG......does anyone really think this current regime can get this sh*t-stain franchise to where it was during the 90s or the 70s?

What's the use?

Not completely broken.....my football team (Giants) have won four Super Bowls since 1986. Their ownership knows how to run a professional franchise.

James Dolan also owns the Rangers, and they've been a consistent winner. Unlike the Knicks, Dolan doesn't interfere with the management. He admitted he doesn't know hockey, but he thinks he knows basketball.
