The New York Knicks had their most successful season in over a decade. In addition to this, the atmosphere in Madison Square Garden was once again electrifying. It is definitely a good time to get Knicks tickets. So heading into next season, the Knicks have needs. Depending on the new salary cap, they should save money for 2012 to see if they could land Chris Paul. But before this happens, they have one huge (pun intended need: a center.
There will be a good amount of centers available, but most are restricted. One guy to look at is Greg Oden, who would be a great center to gamble on for one year. The talent is there, but so are the injuries. However, in all likelihood, Portland is thinking the same thing, and would not let him go. Another option is Sam Dalembert. While he is a headache, he can block shots and rebound better than anyone currently on the Knicks. And if they don’t want to save up for 2012, Deandre Jordan is a good, young center that could benefit the Knicks.
They are going in the right direction, and now they need a man in the middle.
