I find this interesting.  Both players have been terrible this season, but if Felton and/or Prigioni get injured again, then the Knicks will have serious problems at PG.

What do you think is the Knicks' thought process?  Will they bring in a D-Leaguer or two?  Are they going to try to grab a veteran who has been bought out (they would probably go to teams with better records)?

Are any point guards supposed to get bought out though? Could they possibly land say Clark, Davis, or Granger?

It makes me sad to see Metta World Peace without a team. He'll probably join the Spurs, everyone is signing with them apparently.

I'm not even sure the Knicks have a thought process. MWP, I can kind of understand, but I don't understand the Udrih release, I know he's been garbage this year, but as you say, can we trust Felton and old man Pablo to stay healthy? If you want to make a run at the playoff then they're going to need to stay as deep as possible, just in case.

You very well could be looking at some veterans, but I read an article today saying that veterans were joining New York and were shocked at how badly managed to franchise was and in turn is having an impact on their free agent signings (which I think is BS in the long run). But it'll be interesting to see what they do, unless they've given up getting to the playoffs, but surely not?

Udrih requested a trade back then and wanted out of the Knicks if I remember it right, so yeah.

Nah, you are not allowed to elbow opponents in boxing.

I am sure Udrih can find a home somewhere, GS would have made a lot of sense before they got Blake.

OKC to start over Durant, win a few titles, then retire the best baskethoops player in history.

If he goes to the Heat don't try and jump on the wagon.

Don't they have Murry as emergency option at PG?

Yeah, but that is not going to help them claw their way into the playoffs.  A Prigioni/Murry PG rotation is the worst in the the NBA.

I guess the timing of this is typical for how the Knicks season has gone. What can go wrong, will go wrong.
