Wooo!!!! Its almost final. Billups out. Chandler in. I think Chandler is a great signing. Is he overpaid a bit? Sure but in today’s Eastern Conference, a big man can make all the difference. Miami: No center. Chicago: Noah is good but Chandler is just as good. Boston: No center. Atlanta: Undersized Al Horford. Orlando: Dwight Howard is leaving. The Knicks may have the best center in the Eastern Conference right now. I love also that Billups is gone. I have respect for Billups but he was a horrid fit with Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire. He shot the ball too much and he wasn’t a distributor.
Chandler will have a 4 year, 58 million dollar deal which means Turiaf will also need to go in order to make the salaries work. I think the Knicks have to bring Jerome Jordan over now. What better center to learn from than a leader like Chandler? I think this is a home run by the Knicks assuming Chandler can stay healthy.[twitter-follow screen_name='tarmosino' show_screen_name='no']
