#1 Knicks re-hire Isiah Thomas as consultant

Newsone Analysis: While many will criticize this move, I won’t. For one, the Knicks aren’t bringing him back to replace Donnie Walsh. He is being brought in as a consultant. We can all agree that Thomas has a great eye for talent. He drafted Damon Stoudemire, Marcus Camby, and a host of others in his NBA career. While he may not be any good at building a team, he is one of the best in the business at spotting talent.

Many across the net are surprised at Thomas being brought back to the Knicks. But anyone who has followed the Isiah/Knicks saga throughout the years will know that he and Owner James Dolan are real close. This was inevitable.
