I don't think he has been average at all. When you look at his size, and how he plays on D, you have to think its a great addition for us. Whether or not (_)'Antoni can manage to maximize the capabilities of a guy like that remains to be seen.

I also think the shortened season helps us, notably for the health of Amaré - and you figure a big like Chandler might not mind the lesser total of GP taking its toll on his body.

The Knicks have the best front court in the NBA.

Nothing to complain about there.

They need a PG though. Douglas is not the answer.

I actually really like the move. Whereas some of the the moves that the Knicks have made over the last couple of years have not necessarily worked well together, adding Chandler actually fits really, really well with their roster.

We've got two forwards who prefer to play on the wing; they're both offensive dynamos; neither is a fantastic defender - although STAT is much better as a help guy looking for athletic blocks than when he tries to D up. Chandler doesn't need the ball. He's the best in the business at rebounding and defense - other than Dwight Howard. He complements the other two perfectly and allows us to play the Magic (or Nets or wherever Howard ends up) effectively. Perfect fit.

Yeah, you need to find a PG, but honestly I think getting the right center to make Amar'e and Melo work on this team is much more important, because Chandler has the ability to take that duo from dysfunctional to efficient. He also has a super attitude, which is infectious to teammates. Meanwhile, we have decent combo guards and 2-guards - and okay to good PGs are much easier to find than anyone who could come close to fitting the bill in the middle.

Not psyched about bringing in Baron Davis, however. His attitude (especially given the influence it might have on Melo's prima donna nature) could do a lot to counter the positive locker room presence that Chandler would provide.

Dwight Howard met with NJ owner Mikhail Prokhorov & GM Billy King Thurs night in Miami, sources say. Orlando was unaware if meeting

The alleged Proky-Dwight meeting, according to source who spoke with the Magic about the situation, is believed to have happened in Miami.

What is this league coming too...

The Nets are such a Mickey Mouse organization.

If this proves to be true, they're in big trouble. They can kiss Howard goodbye and all their picks.

I know it looks great. As long as Chandler is healthy.

They have no problems now matching up with the Celtics, Heat and Bulls.

Nets reported four-year, $60-$65 million contract offer knocks Houston out of the bidding, source says. Too rich.

Supposedly Billups is saying he may retire if he can't go to a contender.

He wants to go to Miami.

He'll be fine with the Knicks. Would be a fantastic move.

I'm wary. Inconsistent and Fat Baron of last few years makes me nervous. Not sure any other options are available at this point.

Nope. John Hollinger (who I must say seems to have a very anti-Knick bias) is speculating that they're having difficulty in trading Turiaf and the deal may be in jeopardy.

To be clear, it's just his speculation based on not being able to find any rumors on where Turiaf could be going. No one else is reporting anything of any kind on the subject.

It was under assumption that Billups and Turiaf would be amnestied I thought?

I'm gonna miss Turiaf, that guy had a great attitude and was an asset off the bench. His troubles came when he was asked to start...

I'll take Chandler over him every day though obviously.
