2013/14 Knicks Roster Power Rankings – Week 16

1-2 this week with the obligatory hey, maybe this team isn’t so bad and might be turning things around game against Denver before turning back into a bad Knicks team again.  Will this be the last power rankings with this roster?  The next one will be written the day before the trade deadline so it’s possible that there will be some new faces on this list by next week.
Rank Player Comments Last weeks Rank
1 Jeremy Tyler He hasn’t played a ton of minutes, but he did sport a +30 this week and had a double double against Denver.  Jeremy was also the only Knick to play well in all 3 games this week. 6
2 Anthony, Carmelo The list of Knicks who look like they are still actually trying is down to about 3 and one of them is Melo.  He couldn’t hit shots against Portland or OKC and his free throw attempts are way down, but it must be hard to keep any sort of consistency when literally every person you played with last year is playing much worse this year. 1
3 Chandler, Tyson Tyson looks like he’s one more blowout loss away from open revolt.  He now appears to scowl at his teammates when they switch for no reason instead of helping them, but I’d still rather have him on the court than half of these jokers. 3
4 Prigioni, Pablo I almost thought Woodson came to his senses when Pablo played 8 more minutes than Felton against Portland and clearly outplayed him.  The very next game the teams best point guard took a back seat to arguably the league worst starting point guard because Woodson. 4
5 Stoudemire, Amar’e Amare gets this high because he’s been super efficient on offense.  The Knicks still lose when he plays, they are 12-27 when he does and 8-4 when he doesn’t.  It doesn’t matter though because if he’s healthy enough to play he’s going to so at least he’s scoring when he is out there.

JR Smith Trade Scenarios

The Knicks are looking into trading JR Smith.  Considering he’s played like crap for pretty much the entire season, had an offseason knee surgery, got suspended for repeated drug violations as well as fined for repeated unsportsmanlike conduct (shoelacegate parts 1 and 2) the market for JR is at an all time low.  Remember, when the market for JR was at an all time high after he got the 6th man of the year award the Knicks were still the only team to make an offer.  That being said I’m going to attempt to propose a few trade scenarios that would kinda sorta make sense for the other team (obviously any trade getting rid of JR makes sense for the Knicks).

Scenario #1

Milwaukee Bucks get:
JR Smith
Cole Aldrich

New York Knicks get:
Gary Neal
Carlos Delfino

Why the Bucks do it:  The Bucks really want to get rid of Neal and Delfino hasn’t been healthy in 4 years.  The Bucks save about 1M a year after this year and in theory replace Neals 3 point shooting.

Why the Knicks do it:  They get rid of JR Smith

Scenario #2 Continue reading
