Tim Kawakami of the SJ Mercury writes that the Knicks' decision will affect Warriors: Frye Might Be Drafted by N.Y. or Golden State.
So why are Thomas' moribund New York Knicks and Mullin's newly fashionable Warriors both sending smoke signals about Arizona big man Channing Frye?
Well, first, the rangy, 6-foot-11 Frye could be a special player; he isn't going to be a superstar but might be able to help get a success-starved team into the playoffs ASAP.
Second, Thomas might be bluffing about Frye, in part to fake out Mullin; and I'm guessing that Mullin isn't bluffing, in part to give a Zen fake-out to old Zeke.
Not that Mullin is tipping his hand. He kept Andris Biedrins under wraps before he selected the young Russian center last summer, though Mullin had been plotting that pick for weeks.
This summer is no different.
