new idea.
Tony Douglas from NY.
With all the Jeremy Lin hype Tony is a lost cause.
Matt Barnes for Tony Douglas and a filler, say Landry Fields.

Tony Douglas would do wonders for us.
Wed still have fish and blake but oh well.
Can Amnesty 1 next year.

But Knicks lose nothing but a back up 1 that didnt fit well in their system and gain depth off the bench and a good defender.

Lakers give up a good player but get the pg we need so Jeremy Lin doesn't go for 38 on us again and all other points cant penetrate off the dribble 100% of the time.

Toney Douglas has been horrible this year but he's a decent player he needs to get out of NY maybe he'll get his confidence else where

No way is NY parting with Fields though for Barnes

Just read on ESPN that KY probably is going to cut Toney Douglas - which means we can get him for free.

He is basically a 2 in a 1s body - but he excells at two things we need: One-on-one defense at the point and 3pt shooting.

Pull the trigger Mitch - send Fish to the D-league.

New York keeps Fields if we're offering Barnes...I'm 100% sure of that.

Douglas is a "hell no" in my book. Horrible defender, doesn't run an offense, combo guard stuck in between two positions, basically a guy that thinks basketball is all about scoring and doing nothing else.

Douglas is shooting about as bad as everyone else on this team from three (he's at 24%), and he's ranked one of the worst defensive players on the Knicks, which says a LOT.

Fist of all, Horrible defender, doesn't run an offense, combo guard stuck in between two positions - who does that remind you of ???? FIIIIIIISH!!!
At least Douglas can defend a quick guard and hit a three once in a while and at 25 he is still 12 years younger.

Second, regarding fields. That scenario is only possible if NY signs JR Smith, which is looks like they might. In that case, Fields would be stuck as a third SG (behind Shumpert and JR) or behind Melo at the 3. Thus, there is a good chance, that NY would let him go this summer in order to adress a few more pressing needs (backup 4 and 5). Barnes would be a really nice fit in NY behind Melo as a tough energy guy behind Melo. Also he can play the 4 at times if needed.

That's why I don't want him.

Second two-guard. Shumpert will be the backup PG. Shump has been playing more PG than SG this season (according to minutes), and while Jeremy Lin is a nice offensive player, the Knicks will need a defensive-minded PG, and that's where Shumpert will stand out the most in the playoffs (especially against Rondo, Rose and Cole).

Baron Davis is close to retirement. I wouldn't put any money on him returning to last year's form (which was still bad).

Fields will back up JR Smith at the two, and get minutes at the three as well. Douglas or Balkman are out of the picture, which helps significantly.

Fields is staying. Him and Jeremy Lin are very tight. New York has to sign Lin over the summer so I wouldn't mess with that plus can anyone trust JR Smith.

Perhaps your're right.
Wouldn't really want to see Barnes go anyways...
