In a separate matter, Memphis Grizzles guard O.J. Mayo could be on the move soon, and a source close to his family thinks he could end up with the Knicks. “They’re gonna move him next week and I think he’s gonna end up in New York,” the source said.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: He’s too great a risk for these New York Knicks.
Sure, Coach Mike D’Antoni’s squad could use an additional piece; however, O.J. Mayo needs touches, shots, and minutes to be effective.
Mayo’s score-first approach would impact chemistry. For instance, Amar’e Stoudemire and Ray Felton, the Knicks’ newfound pick-and-roll duo, would have to adjust. And Mayo would take minutes from promising rookie Landry Fields and youngster Wilson Chandler.
So the Knicks should proceed with caution. After all, the club has won eight straight and Madison Square Gardens is in the midst of a basketball renaissance.
Instead of considering tinkering, the Knicks may be better of just enjoying their success.
