my vote for the two players to be bought out?

1. Jerome James. The man has no motor. Can't imagine a team having success with him in the locker room. New York always has the money to buy anyone out, and with Randolph Morris currently proving in the summer league that he is a live body with good foot work (my prediction is he'll be better than Jackie Butler) Jerome's time has come to pack up and get the **** out of dodge.

2. This was a harder one. I'm going to vote Dan Dickau off the island because I remember what fred jones did in the nba once ron artest got suspended for the brawl. the man can ball, and if Isiah won't cut Nate, he should cut Dickau. I like the kid's game but there are just too many contracts on this team. We have to keep Mardy Collins, just based on what he might be able to do--judging from the ending to last season.

Nichols and Chandler are keepers. Isiah can draft!

In my personal opinion the Knicks should attempt to rid themselves primarily of Jerome James and Jared Jeffries. Either in a package for a 3 for 1 or for future draft picks. Sending Nichols to the D-League makes no sense. Next to Q he could possibly be the best shooter on the team.Sign the draft picks and move J & J or just eat the contracts.

marbury is my favorite player and he can still produce 20 and 9 and isiah would be a total idiot..check that he is a total idiot but if he doesnt re-sign marbury his whole team is going to go down the drain...

we should package marbury in a trade to try and get mo williams im not the gm but we could use marbury in a 3 for 1 trade to get williams and maybe get rid of some of guards we got on the team now and cut our roster down to 15 so we can keep nichols cause that dude got game.

Good story. Marbury will retire as a Knick but the Knicks do need a good back up point guard that understands how to run the team. They should use Collins at that position.

I like what I see so far- Nichols, Chandler, Balkman, and even Nate suprisingly. If he truly buys into becoming more of a team player than a showman, then there is a place for him on the team. Some veterans can learn from these young guys- however, those that need to be bought out like Jerome James will never learn.

I would like the knicks to get rid of Jerome James and Dickau at this time.Nichols can really ball and is an excellent outside shooter.Morris is an excellent inside presence and can play power forward or center.Fred Jones can be a valuable backup at either guard position.
