The other day, we asked you to grade Knicks GM Glen Grunwald's moves this offseason.

We're not sure if ESPN NBA analyst John Hollinger participated, but if he had, it sounds like he wouldn't have given Grunwald favorable remarks.

Hollinger wrote an Insider piece today looking at several teams' offseason moves.

Here's a snippet of what he wrote about the Knicks, who added Jason Kidd, Marcus Camby, Raymond Felton and Ronnie Brewer Jr., re-signed Steve Novak and J.R. Smith and let Jeremy Lin and Landry Fields walk this summer:

I don't get what the Knicks did at all. They opened free agency spending like drunken sailors, using some creativity from their front office (in the form of non-guaranteed contracts to bit players) to create the salary ballast to execute three sign-and-trade deals. Unfortunately, they used it to sign a pair of geriatric vets to three-year deals. Jason Kidd and Marcus Camby will likely help them some this season, but this was classic New York shoot-money-out-the-firehouse stuff.

Do you agree with Hollinger? Did the Knicks handcuff themselves by signing Camby and Kidd to three-year deals and letting Lin go?
