Expect “big moves” from Knicks next summer?


“Maybe it’s Kyrie Irving” – Stugotz

“It’s a players league. The players recruit each other. Some of them are friends” – Shelburne



Jones: Boogie

Shelburne: LeBron

” In the way he did it, then jetting off to Italy”

Stugotz: Boogie

“He is going to get a championship ring and then he gets the big contract after next season”

Sedano: Boogie

“Boogie is smarter because rehab his image”


Shelburne, Jones and Stugotz: Sign Kawhi in 2019

“The trade right now is just too much” – Shelburne

“You have more leverage at this point in time once you start waiting” – Jones

Sedano: Trade for Kawhi Now

“Let’s just get a superteam already”



All agree on CP3

“They were a game away from the NBA finals. You got to run that back and try it again with Chris Paul” – Stugotz

“He gives that franchise stability, leadership, toughness and he’s shooting the ball better than he ever had before” – Jones


All agree on Capela

“A guy who can stretch the court, he can guard big guys above the three-point line” – Stugotz

“He’s the guy that all these teams in the league should have saved their cap space for because they might have been able to steal him out from Houston this year. Next year, he could be an unrestricted free agent if he signs the qualifying offer” – Shelburne

“He defends, rebounds, runs the floor, rolls and is happy with doing that. He doesn’t care about touches, he just wants to win” – Jones
