Knicks, Kelly Oubre have mutual interest (nypost.com)

Oubre would be a nice pickup imho. Athletic wing who can defend, rebounds well and is only 25 - played well when with Phoenix and probably won't want to stay with Warriors with Klay coming back.

Noel/Burks/Rose return. Fournier signed as they lose Bullock. I would say that's an upgrade but was hoping for a bigger splash.

Seems like a lot of money for Fournier.

Yup basically used their 53 minion in cap space to sign their own guys and their biggest free agent in like forever in Fournier which says it all. Gotta hope some of their draft picks pan out though Tibs doesn't like to play young players. Wait until never. Riley able to lore FAs too bad he didn't stay with Knicks as President though Dolan would have muffed that up right quick.

Totally agree, this is underwhelming.

Also, I loved what Rose did last year but he'll never play a full season and we gave him three years!  I would have loved Kyle Lowry.

They probably had to do it to get up to the salary floor.

At this point, go all in on Lillard.

Not happy with Knicks first day of free agency. I'm fine resigning Noel but didn't need to commit to Burks for three years, Fournier nowhere near defender Bullock is although more well rounded offensively and while I love Rose, he's not a full time player anymore. Not convinced they've improved over last year's team and they still need another point guard (Cam Payne?) to split time with Rose unless they intend to count on McBride to step right in as a rookie.

No way the Knicks have improved their roster. 
It's a push at best. 

I usually like to keep an emerging team together. 

I was pissed that the 92 Knicks traded Mark Jackson and let Xavier McDaniel and Gerald Wilkins go in favor of Charles Smith (nowhere near the energy of X), Doc Rivers (best years behind him) and Rolando Blackman (on his last legs). 

But this Knicks team needs a legit star to complement RJ and Randle. Otherwise, they are another first-round exit team.
