How would he fit with the team? He's big and slow, but for a center you don't need an athletic freek for D'Antoni's up-tempo system. Shaq would give the team a tough inside presence, but would I don't think it would be worth it. They're banking on the offseason of 2010, and Shaq would make them a better team, therefore earning them a lower pick in the draft. The Knicks would likely rather have a bad team filled with potential to attract one of the big-name free agents as opposed to a mediocre team that won't bring in a star in July.
