According to New York Knicks club sources, the team already has their summer of 2010 free agent wish list picked out. The Knicks would love to acquire LeBron James to play at small forward for them and one of either Amare Stoudemire or Chris Bosh to play at center for them in D’Antoni’s fast-paced small ball style offense.
They would also love to acquire Steve Nash to man the team’s offense at the point guard position. Their first priority would be LeBron James and then after that their next priority would be signing either Stoudemire or Bosh. If they were able to sign LeBron and one of either Bosh or Stoudemire then they would use their remaining money to go after Nash. Depending on the cap situation of the club and how much they could offer to Nash if they had already signed two of their desired free agents, they might not be able to also then sign Nash as planned.
In that case, the team would then pursue Greek point guard Vassilis Spanoulis who will also be a free agent in the summer of 2010 after his current contract with Panathinaikos Athens expires. Spanoulis would be signed to be the Knicks’ starting point guard in the event that they do not end up with Nash. Of course this is all part of the Knick’s 2010 master plan and any of this can come true or none of it. We just have to wait and see.
