See, that's the key thing right there. We don't know yet what they'll do in 2015. My assumption is they'll go all-in one of two ways: rebuilding or reloading.
If they go the tanking/rebuild route...then it's ****** because most their draft picks belong to other teams. This is what Ujiri is banking on.
If the Knicks decide to reload (aka what Miami did in 2010) they'll have the means to do it as long as they don't compromise their current situation. After this Bargnani deal, Raymond Felton's player option is the only thing preventing them from having the ENTIRE cap to play with in 2015.
To borrow KG's quote...anything is possible. Good or bad.
