New York Teams

While Jason Pierre-Paul would have had a $17.5 million salary cap charge in 2018 with the Giants, the Bucs' salary cap charge is only $12.5 million (from his $11.25 million base salary + $1 million per game roster bonus + $250,000 workout bonus). The Giants have to eat $15 million in dead money now for proration of his $20 million signing bonus given in the 2017 original extension.

The trade of Jason Pierre-Paul is a combination of financial and fit. He didn't fit the 3-4 scheme they are expected to run under new coordinator James Bettcher, especially with Olivier Vernon already on the roster. Pierre-Paul also takes substantial money off the books in the future for the Giants. They take a dead money hit of $15 million this year and save only $2.5 million vs. cap for 2018. But they take cap hits of $19.5M and $17.5M off the books for 2019 and 2020. That provides flexibility.

The Nets let a 23-point lead slip away in a loss to Charlotte tonight, so the Knicks remain 1.5 games behind Chicago and three games behind Brooklyn and Sacramento in the Lottery Standings with ten games to play. If the season ended tonight, the Knicks would finish with the NBA's 9th-worst record.

Chicago is well on its way to another loss, so the Knicks will remain 1.5 games behind the Bulls in Lottery Standings. Chicago has the eighth-worst record in the league. If Brooklyn holds on for a win against Charlotte, New York would move within two games of Brooklyn for the league's 7th-worst record.

Michael Beasley (10-for-14) and Enes Kanter (6-for-10) have shot it well but the rest of the Knicks are shooting a combined 36 percent from the floor. They trail Miami by 22 heading into the fourth.

The Heat may score 60 in the first half against the Knicks. They are shooting 57 percent against New York in the first 18 minutes. Not the kind of effort management's looking for as they give more minutes to young, unproven players.

Don't talk to Michael Beasley about tanking. The free-agent-to-be has 10 points on 4-for-4 shooting in 10 minutes against Miami. The Knicks are looking to win their third straight game since mid-December, when they won four in a row.
