The Knicks probably won’t be good next season.
They’re not good right now. Few rookies – even a highly drafted one like New York will get – immediately contribute to winning. It’s a weak free-agent class. A new front-office leader probably won’t trade long-term assets for immediate help.
And if you want someone else to state the obvious, here’s Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie.
Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News:
Spencer Dinwiddie doesn't envision big Knicks improvement next season: "Probably not. They’ll probably have a high draft pick. Unless they do a trade or via free agency, which I don’t know if this free agency class is that spectacular, they’re probably not going to be that good."

Players rarely talk like this about other teams. It’s just not nice. Dinwiddie also risks gets egg on his face, which the Knicks’ massive fan base would surely rub in.
But spot the lie.
