Very nice move locking up lance. He is a nice solid player to have on any team. Hustle player that defends well, can shoot, and has great intangibles.
lol maybe I should stop asking questions. they keep getting answered with news. Good job to keep Thomas, who I’ve said they needed to keep. I thought he could get somewhere between $7-11 million per for 3 years from someone. 4 years/$27.3 million, so thats pretty comparable, and a little less. Arguably a steal to keep him with the early bird rights. Team is looking pretty good, if they can stay healthy, but they probably need to look to keep Galloway now, if they can, and/or add a cheap option at a bench 2 guard/wing that can shoot
Rose, Lee, Thomas, Melo, Porzingis
Noah, Galloway, Jennings, wing, O’Quinn, Holiday is a pretty good looking start to the roster for the Knicks, considering how they looked before
Maybe Early is the wing?
Galloway now a UFA
