Re: Jared Jeffries to the Knicks

JJ isn't the difference maker and he's not worth that contract. stevenson is a good deal. go EG, go.

DS also shoots a better percentage than JJ- and he's not a bad defender at all. He'll be playing his butt off this upcoming season too, so he can opt out of the second year and get a big payday. This also gives some leeway to developing blatche (who will be better than both players in a few years) and negates the need to rely on jarvis hayes' knees.
Exactly. Nice post. This is an absolute steal for the Wizards. It wasn't a secret that they were targeting Songaila and Stevenson this off-season. The feeling was that they'd have to choose on or the other. But here they are with both.

Good free agent replacements with similar games to Jeffries and would come cheap could be blah blah, DeShawn Stevenson (ORL), blah blah, blah blah, blah blah, blah blah, blah blah, blah blah, blah blah.

Re: Jared Jeffries to the Knicks

I can tell the Knicks won't be improving this year. If anything, although it's nearly IMPOSSIBLE, the could be WORSE this year with Isaiah Thomas coaching.

I love it. I never liked the Knicks.

Jared should've "bloomed" last season. He played well in the playoffs, but it wasn't good enough to consider him a difference maker. If he blooms in NY, good for him. I'd rather have Blatche starting instead of Jeffries.
