      Knicks still adding pieces, resigned Lance Thomas who played pretty well last year and signed Bandon Jennings to be the back-up PG. He'll do well filling the role as a bench scorer. Here is an updates line-up

      PF: Kristaps Porzingis, Kyle O'Quinn
      SF: Carmelo Anthony, Lance Thomas
      C: Joakim Noah, Marshall Plumlee
      SG: Courtney Lee, Langston Galloway, Justin Holliday
      PG: Derrick Rose, Brandon Jennings, Ron Baker

      That looks like most of the roster is filled up but there is definitely for improved depth on the bench. Guys like Baker, Plumlee and Holliday should be at the very bottom of the roster, especially with how poorly Baker and Plumlee have played so far in summer league. They'll need to get a couple of more value signings like Jennings to finish rounding out the roster.

      Frankly, it looks like a playoff team if they stay relatively healthy, but I don't think they're currently constructed to match up against the Cavs, Celtics, Raptors or Heat.
      All Hail The New York Giants!!

        Agree with your last Sentence that they would be a playoff team if they stayed healthy and maybe could even win one playoff series but that would be it. They would get beaten by any of the teams you mentioned in a 2nd round Series. However they could use this year as a Spring Board too the next FA Period where they can improve the team even more.
        Football has been very, very good to us.
        After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
        But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

        # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

        1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
        2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
        3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
        4-New York Giants!!!
        5-NE
        Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

          Holiday can play. He's a nice backup 2 behind Lee. All my Bulls fan friends said a really solid role player.

          PG- Rose/Jennings
          SG- Lee/Holiday
          SF- Melo/Euro guy they just signed who plays a lot like DWill
          PF- KP/O'Quinn
          C- Noah/Willy H

          I would love to see Lance Thomas brought back cheap. He would be a nice 3&D guy off the bench. Him and Holiday would be able to make up for Jennings' lack of defense

          This team should be a lot of fun to watch. I'm pumped

            Lance Thomas has already been brought back on a 4 year deal using the Early Bird Rights not using the Cap Space..

            http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/16...multiyear-deal

            They also signed two others to help fill out the roster: I think the guy right below "Willy H. Is the Euro Guy you are referrring too.

            Knicks have agreed to terms with 2015 second round pick Willy Hernangomez, sources confirm to ESPN. Terms are unclear but it is a multi-year deal. The Knicks could have used cap space or an exception to sign Hernangomez, a 6-10 forward who is close friends with Kristaps Porzingis. The guess here is that they used cap space on a three or four-year deal. The agreement was first reported by The Vertical.

              Good to hear about Lance. He apparently turned down more money to return. I'm really excited to see what Willy can bring to the table. At the very least KP will have his good buddy to be on his team again.

              Mindaugas Kuzminkas looks pretty interesting from a few clips I've seen, but who knows. This team is actually becoming well rounded. Phil has really made an interesting squad. I just pray they can stay healthy

                Yep as it is with the Giants, Mets, Yanks, Rangers, Knicks whoever. Staying Heathy is the KEY. Sadly that has not happened for our NY teams for quite awhile. It has been an incredible streak of bad luck with key guys getting hurt year in and year out. I am thinking the luck has to turn around and we finally get some good solid years with some titles to show for it.

                The off season did not go as well as a lot of us had envisioned for the Knicks but i think they came out a lot further ahead in the East then a bunch of other teams did. I think they will be much improved and I am happy how the team is coming together and will at least be excited for a change when the season starts. That in of itself is a plus right there. How long that excitement lasts is the big question.

                    So ESPN Puts out their Annual "Winners & Losers of the FA Period for 2016. Their are a bunch of Teams they listed as Winners & Losers as well as a few undecided along with a bunch of other things they weighed in on. It was quite a LONG Piece. What was not mentioned for even 1 Word was the New York Knicks.. NOTHING< NOTTA, ZILCH.. No Mention of their FA Signings Whatsoever one way or the other. Its like they totally ignored them as if they did nothing in the Offseason

                      Well, who can say if they are winners or losers? Their entire offseason is contingent on health of several which is a big indictment to be honest.

                        Well that is obvious. The point I am making is they mentioned a ton of teams by name. Listing them a winner or loser. I thought it was interesting with all the changes the Knicks made that they were not even mentioned at all. Just skipped over like they did nothing at all in the FA Market or off season

                          Okay and now this.......

                          http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/17...state-warriors

                          I do not think I would go as far as putting them in the SUPER TEAM Status.. I am not sure from the LINK what people are saying this. Rose just said that the Knicks are mentioned in the some breath as GS as a ST.. I would list several other teams ahead of NY right now even with the changes they made. Cleveland, SA, Maybe even the Bulls even with the loss of Rose and Noah with who they added. LA Clippers, Toronto and Boston.

                          However as many have said if they all remain healthy ( A BIG IF ) they can do some damage and would i think make the 2nd Round and give it a good go against the Celtics or Raptors. I do not think they could beat the Cavs if they made it too the ECFs. I realize they could possible draw the Cavs in the 2nd round if they finish at the in the wrong spot in the playoff rankings though. Will have to see how it plays out for this NYKs Super Team lol

                              I think most Knicks fans think the Knicks can be a solid 2nd round playoff team if their health is decent. However, most are avoiding that comment like the plague and it's cringe worthy IMO.

                                Can't say I watched or even know who played or didn't play. I really did not know pre season started and when I turned I was flipping channels I saw they were playing the rockets do I switched it on.

                                They were getting blown out 25 and think they lost by 20+.. not going to judge until I see who played and for how many minutes. But not very impressive Start
