This is an absolute blessing for the Knicks.
It sucks that Rose is hurt and injured and his knees consistently give out on him but had he finished the season healthy, the Knicks may have re-signed him in off-season.
The Knicks need to distance themselves as far away as possible for Derrick Rose. Recent history shows the Knicks would have been dumb enough to toss him a ton of money over the next four years and the team would continue to be awful.
This allows for the perfect opportunity to let him walk and draft one of the four point guard studs in this upcoming draft.
The Knicks need to add young talent in the similar age range to Porzingis and Hernangomez as they are the future of this team. Time to find the Rose replacement.
The current style of play Rose displays is not what the Knicks need. The Knicks do not need a score first point guard. Rose simply does not too a good enough job at setting up his teammates for easy buckets. He is a ball stopper in the offense and does not possess the ability to continue to swing the ball to keep the offense in motion.
Not to mention, his defense is as poor as it gets. How many more times do Knicks fans need to watch opposing point guards go get 20+ points and 8+ assists. Rose cannot stay in front of his man. Opposing point guards get into the lane with easy and usually finish the play with a layup or a kick out to a open shooter.
I wish Rose nothing but the bet in the future but no longer with the Knicks.
