He also said the Knicks had mgmt that could do that to. Did you listen to the whole interview or just pick the words?

Bull could probably make something work if they wanted to

Yup, he's going to sign with the Clippers, since they've turned off salary cap for their association...

He's at his peak right now. He signs with the Knicks long term, 1)He's not winning a title in New York and 2)His contract is going to be so huge no one is going to be able to trade for him unless they gut the whole team. If he's smart, he'll get out of New York.

No contender can sign him outright, unless he takes a huge paycut.
Best case scenario for him is he gets traded

If Bulls sign and trade with Taj Gibson he can get a pretty big contract...
Not sure what Bulls could do with Mirotic though. Ask Rose for a paycut???

I'd ask Rose to pay back whatever he's earned since his first injury. He's not coming back till 2018 anyway.

I think Wade is going to retire, so it really wouldn't surpise me if he ends up in Miami with Lebron.
