    I'm liking the trade more and more honestly. It's not as high profile as the Mavs trade but it evens out the position and brings in a guy like Outlaw who MAYBE have a comeback in the triangle and we get rid of Tyler and add a guy in Acy who IMO is the best player in that trade and has a higher ceiling than Tyler. Plus he is a major energy guy. I bet he becomes a fan favorite off the bench.

    Get rid of two players who weren't going to get mins more than likely and add to guys who could be decent role players for sure
    I remember Acy from Baylor but not much in the pros. Energy is a good way to describe his game. Outlaw is only 29yrs old after all these yrs. So i'd imagine hes got something left in the tank. Both players have length and both can at least not be totally left alone behind the arc. I think they got better even if only a tad.

      This is from D-League last year... obviously not the best competition but shows he can shoot pretty nice for a PF



      VS the Knicks last year (Might have been pre season)



      Quick Highlight




      I mean obviously these are just short clips but it is clear that he is a high energy guy and the Knicks could really use that on their team. I just watched a video of Outlaw vs the Thunder last year and he looked solid offensively. He was shooting it really well. Maybe he could be a pretty solid role player in the triangle because it opens up a lot of open shots

      As for the title.. Idk if it is coming this year but I honestly believe that Phil will get this team to the Finals within the next 3 years. The 2015-2016 year might be the best chance to do it. Amare and Bargnani come off the books and it opens up room for a Max player and extra cash to fill out the rest of the roster!
      The Knicks one makes me remember him more. I vauely remember him eating up the knicks and the crowd loving it..

        At the least Acy makes us better on the defensive side of the ball. We need more of those scrappy type players on this team. They help win games in the 4th. With Calderon, THJ, JR, Melo, Amare, Bargnani, Larkin, and even Early we have a lot of scoring. Guys like Pablo, Shumpert, Acy, Dalembert, Aldrich, Jason Smtih are guys who you can rely on doing more than just scoring. I think Phil is putting together a sneaky team honestly. There is a lot of scoring and if the scoring first guys can get motivated enough to put a serious effort in on defense we could have a team that will do a lot better than people expect.

        I posted a few videos of Acy since he has been in the league. Kind of reminds me of a Reggie Evans/ Kenyon Martin type player when it comes to the energy he brings to the game. He could our "Rodman"... obviously he is not at that level of play but he plays extremely hard like Rodman did for the Bulls

          Yeah he could be a fan favorite. Not the most talented player by any means but he gives it his all which is something this team needs. Man when he pump fakes he can really EXPLODE towards the rim. I'm interested to see what kind of minutes he gets
