Report: Hornets Interested in David Lee
According to a source, the Hornets are in love with David Lee, a free agent who is not the Knicks’ first priority.
"This is the first time we’ve been under the cap in 15 years," said Walsh. "I’m going to take that as good and see what we can make out of it. All I can do is work as hard as I can work to make that come true. You got to be crazy to say there is no doubt in my mind [we’ll be better]. Yeah, there’s always doubt on everything."
Indeed, a probable scenario for the big five free agents has James staying in Cleveland, Stoudemire joining Dwyane Wade in Miami and Bosh heading to Chicago or Dallas.
Walsh, however, thinks the stars may have the ego to conquer New York.
"I hope we’re talking to people who want to build something up," Walsh said. "And want to be a part of a start of something in a big city. I can’t imagine what it would be like to build this into a winner. There would be no other place like this — none."
