Knicks Sign Sun

The Knicks, searching for more size in the backcourt, have signed Sun Yue, a 6-foot-9 point guard, to a partly guaranteed contract, his agent, Charles Bonsignore, said. Sun spent last season as a reserve for the Los Angeles Lakers, who drafted him in the second round in 2007.

    At least he has a championship ring……

  • Ran

    Just like a player! Gets a ring then just goes for the money, what a Lack of Love for the game!!!

    Chinese Magic… not so much

    NICE. As a Knick fan, I’m actually excited about this. He’ll get lots of playing time on the Knicks AND he’ll bring in a huge fanbase. I was wondering where Donnie Walsh was; maybe he’s back from vacation. Although, where the heck are Allen Iverson and Ramon Sessions?

  • I am the walrus

    He is high on the list of players who leat deserve a championship ring. He should give it to Karl Malone and Dominique Wilkins.

    I think Gabe was a better pickup.

    A 6’9″ Asian point guard on the championship team, yet I’ve never seen nor heard of him?! That means either he was hurt a lot last year…or he’s not really that good!

    Whatever the case, I’m looking forward to seeing what he does in NY. I’ll be on the lookout for him this time.

    every draft pick of the lakers that leave.. have proven they have the skill-set to play in the L.. hopefully it’ll be the same for Sun..

    he is actually pretty good. he is weak on D, but besides Turiaf, what international player isn’t. He is gonna get some nice $$ from Chinese endorsements for being in the NY market. Maybe a pre-Lebron marketing move??

  • Big D

    Great size, but broke jumper.

  • Danny T

    He’s slept on cause he didnt get much playing time last year but he probably learned a few things from practicing against Kobe. Give him some time before you label him a bust.

  • badnewsb8ller

  • badnewsb8ller

    damn! i meant to say he didnt sign for money. He signed to jump on a club.

  • that dude

    Kobe said he was pretty nice if that’s anything to go by.

    He’s a great prospect with enormous potential: http://www.nbadraft.net/players/sun-yue, a 6-9 point guard with excellent vision, huge vertical, amazing defense for a wing, he can be seen executing monster blocks a la Tayshuan Prince:( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_RYBlwLLcs&feature=PlayList&p=8C0E3CF93F56B472&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=46 ). The mechanics on his jump shot are there; he shows a good ability to pull up and knock down shots in the break and in the half court set. If he gets his chance on the Knick’s he’ll fit right into coach D’s offense and will help a Knick team that is desperate for shot blocking. Think of a point guard in the mold of Boris Diaw with better handle/D and athleticism: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8NXJ8jW8JE

    Sun IS Chinese Magic. He makes money disappear like it was being thrown down a hole. On the other hand, if we judge a man by the company he keeps…. Sun just went from this – http://ballhype.com/story/photo_of_the_day_sun_yue_s_supermodel_girlfriend/ – to this: http://sports.dbw.cn/system/2009/09/03/052091448.shtml
    I guess he at least has some magic with the ladies.
