We definitely signed him as a favor to JR -- especially since the contract is partially guaranteed. Dude couldn't even crack our summer league team's starting lineup and we sucked.

I hope we can convince Kenyon Martin to sign with us, we need a backup PF. I like Thomas, but he's not capable of playing that many minutes anymore.

Rasheed Wallace is working out at the Knicks facility w/ Camby & Thomas. If he comes back, the Knicks will likely offer him a contract.

We're gonna sign Sheed baby. I think this officially qualifies us as a team that reels in ring chasers. Smile

Carmelo Anthony Scouting Report by Hollinger:

Quote:
Scouting report
+ Dominant power forward masquerading as a 3. Elite scorer with great handle.
+ Average shooter who will force it. Can overpower smaller wings on the block.
+ Decent passer but a lethargic defender, especially on the wing. Excellent rebounder.

Analysis
The move to New York pretty much guaranteed that Anthony would become the most overrated player in basketball, and folks haven't disappointed me on that front. Routinely referred to as a superstar despite the pesky fact that his teams don't improve all that much with him on the court, Anthony is better described as an extreme volume scorer. Last season he averaged a staggering 26.5 points per 40 minutes, but with a league-average true shooting percentage, ordinary assist and turnover numbers, and little to no defense. It's hard to conclude that he made a huge impact on New York's bottom line.

The big problem for Melo is that he likes long 2s, but long 2s don't like him. He made only 36.9 percent of his 2s from 10 feet and beyond, but attempted nearly eight a game. He also shot just 30.5 percent on 3s. Going to the cup it's a different story; Anthony had the eighth-best free throw rate among small forwards and makes his free throws. But he had two jump shots for every attempt at the rim.

The exception was when he played as a power forward, in which case he just destroyed people. Bigger defenders can't keep up with him on the dribble and struggle chasing him around the perimeter; according to 82games.com, Anthony had a PER of 29.5 as a 4 and just 17.3 as a 3 last season.

His splits from other seasons aren't quite as dramatic, but he certainly isn't worse as a 4; between the league's trend toward smaller and faster lineups and Anthony being a huge 3 who isn't getting any younger, it seems an obvious progression. He already rebounds like a power forward, ranking eighth among small forwards in rebound rate.

Playing the 4 may also diminish Anthony's defensive problems. He openly loafs on the perimeter and isn't all that quick laterally to start, but relishes physical play and has no problem banging against bigger players. New York gave up 4.2 points per 100 possessions more with Anthony on the court last season, which is another reason he just doesn't move the needle that much as a small forward. As a floor-spacing 4 with an elite defender behind him, perhaps he could finally deliver production that's at least somewhat close to his exalted reputation.
