Phil Jackson Blasts Knicks, New York Media Hits Back


By JOHN DORN

It may not have been just how their fans wanted it to be, but the New York Knicks have broken their free agency silence, nearly 36 hours in. Phil Jackson has inked a deal with guard Arron Afflalo, worth a total of $16 million over two years -- the second year is a player option.

Afflalo isn't a splashy name to grab headlines with, but after a 17-65 season, there was little chance of signing one of those players anyway. This deal seems fair for both sides -- especially considering the market price for solid veterans, which is what Afflalo is. A player option after this season could also help both parties.

He's not particularly great at any one skill, but Afflalo has been around the NBA for eight years now, averaging 11.4 points on 45.3 percent shooting and 38.5 percent from three-point range. At the very least, he's an upgrade over every guard on the Knicks roster. If things don't work out, he's tradable.

Not the coolest of signings, but Afflalo was a realistic target for the Knicks, so credit for nailing him down. They still have roughly $20 million in cap room, so it'll be interesting to see how the use it.
