  1. Fanatics,

    So Lee and Nate feel “disrepected” by the Knicks.I agree that Nate and Lee are fan favorites and can have big roles in the years to come.
    BUT,Lee wants between 10-12 million.For that money let him go somewhere else and get it.Lee made out great in D’Antoni’s system.But,Lee needs to up his defensive skills to be in that 10-12 million range.How many shots did he block last year…….3?Can he create his own shot….NO!
    3 point shot….done!I think a 10-12 million dollars player should be 20 points,12 rebounds,5 asisst,2 blocks per game and a defensive stopper. 6-8 million is fair for Lee….no more.

    Did not hear what Nate is asking for.I would pay him 4-6 million per year.

    Remember both have played on losing teams all of their NBA careers.IF they are such game-changers,the Knicks would have won more games.

    • I certainly agree with you about Lee’s ridiculous asking price. I wonder if his agent is highballing as a negotiation tactic in order to get a slightly better offer than he would otherwise deserve.

      Did you check out Christopher Reina’s Real GM article where he values Lee’s services at about 9 million per year. I would go no higher than that figure but again his numbers are inflated and any real assessment of his, Reina’s included, requires that the player’s value be assessed in the actual playing system he performs within.

      That being said Lee’s numbers are inflated. He wouldn’t produce those numbers an a team with a slower pace to the game!

      Trade him if he is still under the impression he deserves more than 8,… 9 million dollars tops!

      • O&B,

        …And that 8-9 million would be toooooooooo much in my book.I still think 6-8 million,prefer closer to 6 million.I agree the system helped Lee.He has no one-on-one defense.He can’t stay in front of his man.He deserves a rise for his hustle,but that’s it!Maybe if he developed a 3-point shot last year I’d give him 8 million.
