Toure Murry signs with Jazz

toure

Toure Murry has officially signed a 2-year deal with the Utah Jazz, according to reports. Murry did some positive things on the court in limited minutes for the Knicks last season, but New York’s backcourt is crowded, and it appears there was no room for Toure. As of now, the guards on the Knick roster are Jose Calderon, JR Smith, Iman Shumpert, Tim Hardaway Junior, Shane Larkin, and Pablo Prigioni.

 

The roster is starting to shape up, with the season drawing closer and closer. Click here for great deals on Knicks tickets!

BREAKING: Knicks to Sign Shannon Brown

Image

Sources are reporting that the Knicks will sign 28 year-old guard Shannon Brown. 

Brown provides perimeter scoring, solid defense, and incredible athleticism. He is an exciting player and a pretty good one, too. The one problem with this signing? Brown is more of a shooting guard than a point guard, and the Knicks biggest need right now is at the point. Still, Brown can handle the ball a bit, and he can certainly guard opposing point guards on the defensive end, which is where New York’s PG’s have been the most lacking so far. Signing somebody like Jimmer Fredette would have been more fun, but this is a nice move.

BREAKING: Knicks Release World Peace, Udrih

Image

The Knicks announced that they have waived Metta World Peace and Beno Udrih. Both players had expressed displeasure with the team recently, and with the trade deadline in the rearview mirror, it makes sense to cut the two players, since, for whatever reason, the Knicks were set on never playing either of them. 

 

The team now has two open roster spots. Chris Smith, anybody? Just kidding. I hope.

BREAKING: Knicks keep Toure Murry, Chris Smith, Cole Aldrich

The Knicks announced that they have elected to keep PG Toure Murry, PG Chris Smith, and C Cole Aldrich on the 15-man roster, while releasing Jeremy Tyler, Ike Diogu, CJ Leslie, Josh Powell,  and Chris Douglas-Roberts.

Image

It’s a bit surprising that Tyler was waived. Tyler showed great potential during summer league, and Coach Woodson indicated that he would likely make the team despite missing the preseason with a foot injury. The Knicks are now left with 5 big men: Tyson Chandler, Amar’e Stoudemire, Kenyon Martin, Andrea Bargnani, and Aldrich. Given that all 5 of these guys have battled injury recently, it makes one wonder why the team chose to keep 2 guards and only 1 big man. 

Image

Speaking of the guards, what is Chris Smith doing on this team? He played a team-low 20 minutes this preseason and shot a dreadful 1-7. J.R Smith said yesterday that he hoped his little brother would make the team on his own talent, but this is clearly not the case. Based on what we have seen from Chris during the games, it seems that he is not a quality player by any means. Mike Woodson admitted that Chris’ status as J.R’s brother would be considered when making the final roster cuts, and it appears that having the last name “Smith” will, in fact, keep Chris with the team. 

Image

I have no problem with Murry making the roster. Toure showed great promise during the Summer League and continued to play very well during the preseason. He definitely earned a spot on the team.

 

If I’m Ike Diogu right now, I’m feeling pissed off. Diogu showed up to camp, played hard, played well, showed a decent post game and a nice mid-range jumper…. and got released, because the Knicks wanted to keep J.R Smith’s brother. Again, Chris showed nothing during the preseason, so it seems as if, no matter what happened, Chris was guaranteed a roster spot. If that was the case, why not tell Diogu that from the start, so that he could showcase his talent with another team?

Image

 

I am a bit concerned over the lack of healthy, reliable big men on the team. Of course, I am nitpicking here. If a need for another big man arises, the Knicks can always release Chris Smith or any other player on the team and sign Tyler, Diogu, or any big man who is a free agent. Murry, Smith, and Aldrich will not be playing major minutes as things stand right now, and neither would Diogu, Tyler, Powell, Leslie, or Douglas-Roberts if they had made the team. Would I like to see Tyler and/or Diogu on the opening day roster? Yes. Will the 13th, 14th, and 15th men on the team make-or-break our season? Probably not…

Knicks Sign Justin Brownlee

Image

The Knicks’ training camp roster is set.

 

20 year-old Small Forward Justin Brownlee has accepted New York’s training camp invite. Brownlee played in the D-League last season after playing at St John’s in college. He is very unlikely to make the team, but we’ll see how it plays out.
