Knicks best fit for Paul?

Chris Paul is expected to headline a star-studded 2012 free-agent class (along with Deron Williams and Dwight Howard) -- and the Knicks should be a favorite to land the 26-year-old point guard.

This week, ESPN Insider ran a profile of Paul and asked its NBA experts where they expect him to land.

Kevin Pelton see the Knicks as the best fit for Paul.

Paul could have a big impact playing for a coach who emphasizes the pick-and-roll, and New York's Mike D'Antoni has practically made it an art form. Of next year's free agents, Paul would fit best in the Big Apple -- if the Knicks could make it work financially.

But Ric Bucher shoots down the dream scenario.

As much as CP3 would like to play in New York -- and I'd like to see him battling for Gotham with his longtime rival and current Nets point guard Deron Williams -- the Knicks have no chance of adding him as a free agent with Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony already on the books.
