Knicks: Take 'Em or Trash 'Em?

The New York Knicks' season is over, but there's still plenty of work to do.

'Bockers management has a host of important decisions to make this summer -- starting with who will be the head coach next season.

Beyond that, there are several personnel questions to be answered: Jeremy Lin is a restricted free agent, Steve Novak and J.R. Smith are likely to be unrestricted free agents, and there's a significant lack of depth at point guard. Plus there's the elephant in the room: What do you do with Amare Stoudemire?

So GM Glen Grunwald can expect to have have some sleepless nights this summer as he mulls what to do with his roster.

But before Grunwald gets to work, we'd like to know what you think.

Tell us which Knicks you'd take and which ones you'd trash. Then tell us why in the comments section.
