Signing back Novak and JR Smith are good moves, and the return of Shumpert from injury will be important They also need Amare to bounce back from both physical and personal difficulties. Hopefully, the Knicks will also re-sign Landry Fields regardless of the luxury tax implications. It's not my money and I don't see any other shooting guard free agents better than Fields. Plus, he is a great team chemistry player.
The Knicks could surprise and I think they'll be a better team than last year. Certainly, they'll be exciting if they can stay healthy.
