Sorry Earl Barron, We don’t need any stinkin’ 7ft Centers

Center Earl Barron became a free agent when he was not re-signed by Milwaukee yesterday, but Walsh said he would pass for now despite the Knicks’ center woes. According to a source, Walsh likes Barron, but doesn’t want to sign him because D’Antoni won’t play him over Jared Jeffries or Ronny Turiaf.

Great, why would we possibly need a guy who can help clog the middle? This also sounds like the reason Walsh won’t re-up with this team, he is clearly not on the same page as D’Antoni about how to improve this roster.

Sure Glad the Knicks made sure Brewer was included in the trade

The Knicks Could Use a Good Geek

The Knicks waive Corey Brewer

“Free agent Corey Brewer is expected to talk to the Mavs, Spurs and Celtics Tuesday, a source tells Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski.”

Good call Knicks. I can see the future quote now: “Donnie Walsh kicks himself for not realizing Corey Brewer could be a good role player. Walsh promises to never to use the pick the guy’s name out of a hat method to cut players in the future.”

Kelenna Azubuike gets bought out

The Knicks have waived Azubuike. This has likely been done to free up a roster spot for Jared Jeffries. I guess that makes sense since Roger Mason’s spot on the bench has been invaluable this season. Does Roger Mason have naked pictures of Walsh procreating with a donkey? How do you shoot 6% on the year and avoid getting cut? What was the thinking, let’s cut the guy who has been injured all year that has actual potential and is actually close to coming back and keep the guy who would need the entire starting five to die in a plane accident before he would get Bill Walker type minutes. And, Turiaf is now all that remains from the David Lee trade.
