Operation "Save My Job" is under way.

So, Zeke is offering the full mid-level exception (5/$30M) to Jeffries. The Wiz have a week to match (haha).

Well, they need SOMEONE who can defend. But, consider that the Knicks are obviously way over the cap and have to pay luxury tax. Jeffries may be making $30M, but the Knicks will have to pay $60M for him.

I think itís clear Zeke is clearly looking for short-term fixes to save his ass. Remember, heís only got this season to right the ship or Little Jimmy Dolan will have to find a new president, a new GM and a new head coach.

Which means Isiah can now lay claim to TWO back-to-back honors: the 1989 and 1990 NBA Championships as well as the 2005 and 2006 Koncackilvane Award.

Another small forward? Rest assured, Knicks fans, you won't have to put up with Zeke's bullshit after this coming season. God knows how long it'll take the next guy to clean up the mess he made, though.

Reports of Jeffries going to the Knicks may be premature.

Knicks Unlikely to Bag Jeffries


    Two sources close to Ernie Grunfeld told The Post on July 19 that the Wizards GM was confident Jeffries would return to Washington because Grunfeld planned on matching any mid-level offer and did not foresee another team surpassing that reasonable price.


Of course, the key word here is "reasonable", meaning Isiah may just pony up that much more to ensure the roster's 10th small forward.

Stay tuned.

The Wiz are not going to match.

There really isn't much else to add to that. Except maybe a "ha ha" but still.

You know, it is at that point as a Knick fan that I am not even surprised or upset at the shitty deals and signing our ass clown of a GM/Coach makes. I hope they only win 7 games this year. But I know that Zeke will squeeze out 30-35 and claim improvement and then remind Dolan of the pictures he has of Dolan fucking a zebra and remain as coach for another year.
