Fields was a one year wonder. He's not worth 6.5 million a season. You can find players similar to what he did at the 2/3. He's a slasher, and with Melo on the court with Amare, it'd be hard to have that type of player with them. Someone needs to spread the floor. Fields can't shoot.
Lin is going to hurt though. He has serious potential. Steve Nash lite potential.
People ragged on Felton, but he played exceptional in New York before he was dealt in the Melo trade. Some people use him as an argument for Lin because Lin was good with D'Antoni's offense which is point guard friendly. Not everyone can do it though, so I think with the right players Felton can still be an effective piece for the Knicks. He also never wanted to leave New York. Hopefully, coming back will help his game. Camby and Chandler will be holding it down in the paint. Tyson won't wear down nearly as much this season having Camby able to spell him for minutes. Still need to find a viable 4 option not named Kurt Thomas behind Amare and a SG that can put the ball in the basket from deep. Love Thomas, but that train passed 5 years ago, maybe longer than that.
