Alright, if you remember, last season my Knicks traded Stephon Marbury and Eddy Curry for Devin Harris and Dallas's first round draft pick this year.  Then my Knicks went and made the playoffs just to lose in round 1 to the Cavs.  Yesterday, I played out season 1's offseason and here is what happened:

First, in the offseason you have to re-sign players.  I signed Jamal Crawford to a 2 year extension and David Lee to a 4 year extension.  Besides that nothing really happened except that I released Quentin Richardson to make some cap-space.  Next I had to do the NBA draft.  I had my 2 picks and Dallas's first round pick.  In the end I traded up all these pick's in a package for Seattle's first round pick which was 3rd overall.  I ended up drafting a SF called Thomas Yoruba.  Next, came up the free agent signing.  I now had some considerable cap-space (a few million) so I signed Wally Szczerbiak to a three year 2.3 million deal.  I figure that he can start at first and thne later and back-up Thomas Yoruba at SF.  Other than that I signed Eddie Gill to back-up Harris at PG.  Next up came the trading part of the offseason.  I decided that I was going to try and make a major move.  To start off with I offered Harris, Crawford, and next years second round pick for Steve Nash.  That trade was rejected (as you could guess).  Next I tried for something else, I went for the PF position.  I offered to the Celtics, Zach Rabdolph and my first and second round picks next year for KG which was amazingly accepted.  After this I figured that I was pretty well off.  Here was my lineup with last years stats after the trade:

C- David Lee- 9.7 PPG 10.2 RPG 1.2 APG

PF- Kevin Garnett- 22.3 PPG 8.1 RPG 4.3 APG

SF- Wally Szczerbiak- 16.9 PPG 4.6 RPG 3.1 APG

SG- Jamal Crawford- 20.1 PPG 3.8 RPG 4.8 APG

PG- Devin Harris- 15.0 PPG 2.1 RPG 7.6 APG

 

I figured that I was doing pretty well so after that I didn't make any more trades.  Then the offseason ended with me signing a new assistant coach (NBA Live ranked him B+).  That pretty much ended my offseason... Stay tuned for season 2 later this weekend!
