In Landry Fields, the Raptors may have found someone who could be that Garbajosa-like player. The ‘glue guy’ term is one Fields, even in his rookie year was hearing. And he has his own definition of that kind of player. “I hear the term a lot,” Fields said Thursday. “A glue guy is kind of unheralded at times. It’s a guy every team needs who doesn’t necessarily show up in the statistics box with superstar stats but even when they don’t they are still effective on the court, whether that’s making right cuts so somebody else is open or running the floor, so he draws another person’s man and that person is open. It’s the guy who does the little things to help teams win. Every team has to have a guy like that.” Toronto Sun

Fields expressed how he felt about leaving the Knicks and joining the Raptors on his Twitter account. “I want to thank ALL the Knick fans out there for their support over the past two years!” Fields wrote. “Much love and respect, you will be missed! Thanking God not only for another day, but another opportunity! Toronto bound.” New York Times

Grunwald said little has changed on the Landry Fields, Jeremy Lin offer sheet fronts, although he said Knicks want both back but the press conference was not the time or place to discuss it. “We’ve been told he (Lin) has received an offer sheet from the Houston Rockets. We’re waiting to see that offer sheet. I think Houston had some things to get through first in terms of timing. But like Landry Fields, Jeremy Lin, those are two young players that we’d like back here. We’ll make a final determination when we need to make that determination. Now is not the time.” New York Post

Mike Woodson was asked today whether the Knicks would match the offer sheet the Raptors gave Landry Fields and it didn't sound like they would at this point. "That’s a Glen Grunwald question in terms of where we’re going to go with that," Woodson said. "But as it stands right now it’s all about the guys that we’ve already made the commitment to in terms of getting them where they need to be." The Knicks have until Saturday to match it. #Knicks Sulia
