Love Kemba, but they're banking on him to be DRose 2021 all over again. 

That's a big IF, but IF he's healthy....

Health obviously huge concern but I love this move. With him Rose and the rookie he won’t have to play a crazy amount of minutes and IF he can stay healthy it’s fantastic deal for us. This will get rid of the anger I had the other day.

Kemba was great when he was here in Charlotte. Like this move if he can stay healthy and likely worth the gamble given their other options. He'll have something to prove for sure.

Kemba is (was?) a great player but injuries have taken a toll. I can envision he and Rose being out with injuries at the same time. Would have preferred one healthy vet like a Cam Payne. Knicks are like rooting for a football team where injuries are always a concern.

Injury concerns aside, I have always loved Kemba's game.

Hear you bama, but for me Kemba is high risk high reward proposition worth taking, probably
because he's always been a favorite of mine and believe he'll do everything possible to get healthy between now and season's start. Wouldn't have minded Cam Payne option at all btw.
