Predictably, Jackson's plans have gone up in flames. After trying to support Anthony this offseason, Jackson's relationship with the nine-time All-Star has deteriorated to the point where he's openly trying to trade him - and this is after Jackson made that task nearly impossible because of the no-trade clause he needlessly gave Anthony in 2014. Noah's four-year, $72 million contract, is currently the worst deal of any in the NBA. Rose has played better than many expected, but remains an equally dreadful outside shooter and defender. Noah's signing was necessitated, in part, by trading Robin Lopez to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for Rose in June. And while Lee has been the solid two-way shooting guard he's always been, he alone is incapable of shoring up New York's horrendous perimeter defense.
