Are the Knicks going to make a roster move?
In light of the uncertainty surrounding the availability of Amar'e Stoudemire and Rasheed Wallace, New York reportedly will consider adding a player to the roster after their daunting west coast trip.
Mike Woodson said he and general manager Glen Grunwald will huddle once the team gets back to New York to decide whether they want to add a big man.
Stoudemire will be out for approximately six weeks following surgery to clean out debris in his knee. Wallace is out through the end of the regular season following surgery to repair a broken bone in his left foot. Both players' availability for the postseason is up in the air at this point, which is why the Knicks may explore adding a big man.
To add a player, the Knicks would need to release someone from their 15-man roster. Wallace reportedly won't be released. So that means the Knicks would need to cut a healthy player. James White, Kurt Thomas and Chris Copeland are obvious candidates.
Any player added to the roster needed to be released by his previous team prior to March 1 to be eligible for the postseason. Delonte West and Raja Bell are available, but they would't provide much help to the Knicks. New York can also acquire a player from the D-League, provided that player is on a D-League contract and does not have a contractual obligation to an NBA team.
Question: Do you think the Knicks should add a player? If so, who would you cut?
