The 2012/13 season for the Knicks was a disaster. Picked as one of the top playoff contenders by many polls the Knicks limp their way through a 39 - 43 season only reaching the .500 mark once. The team as a whole will stay intact there will be a change at the Small Forward, Richard Jefferson will not be coming back management fell they did not get enough production from the position.
PG Kyle Lowery - starter - signed for the 2013/14 season
Great season 15.5 ppg, 8.3 apg, 3.8 rpg, 1.4 spg, 0.1 bpg and 24 double doubles for the season
PG Nate Robinson
PG John Lucas
There wasn't enough production from our backup PG's the Knicks will look elsewhere
SG Paul George - Starter - signed - signed through the 2013/14 season
Acquired at the trade deadline finished the season 15.5 ppg, 1.9 apg, 4.7 rpg, 1.9 spg and 0.5 bpg. The Knicks have plans for George next season
SG Jordan Crawford - Bench - signed through the 2013/14 season
Good production 10.2 ppg, 2.0 apg, 3.2 rpg, 0.9 spg and 0.0 bpg.
SG Brandon Roy - Bench - signed through the 2013/14 season
4.8 ppg, 2.0 apg, 1.8 rpg, 0.4 spg and 0.0 bpg. Brandon will be seeing a little more playing time next season
SG Malcom Lee - Bench - signed through 2013/14 season
4.5 ppg, 0.9 apg, 1.6 rpg and 0.1 spg. Malcom is young and talented
SG Ben Uzoh - will not be coming back next season
SF Richard Jefferson - will not becoming back next season
SF Royce White - signed through the 2013/14 season
Acquire at the trade deadline 4.5 ppg, 1.1 apg, 2.4 rpg, 0.7 spg and 0.1 bpg. The Knicks like what they saw for this young man
PF David Lee - starter - signed through the 2013/14 season
Great season 14.8 ppg, 1.5 apg, 7.7 rpg 1.2 spg and 0.3 bpg. David's big strong guy plays defense really well would like to see a little more offensive production from him next season.
PF/C Andrea Bargnani - Bench - signed through 2013/14 season
10.1 ppg. 0.9 apg, 4.4 rpg, 0.5 spg and 0.3 bpg. Andrea's will see more playing time at center next season
C Marcin Gortat - starter - signed through the 2013/14 season
Acquire at the trade deadline was a great addition to the team 16.5 ppg, 1.1 apg, 8.8 rpg, 1.1 spg and 1.7 bpg. Gortat and Lee make a great front court tandem.
C Joel Anthony will not be coming back next season
The small forward position needs to be looked at and some bench players need to be brought in but management feels very confident with the way the team looks and they are ready to prove that this past season was a flute.
