I think Wilkins just signed his pink slip.
Read his commennt about Robinson & tell me where Isiah's new player is going to get minutes?
Answer: Robinson will play when NY has a new coach.
For those that are not signed up for the NY Times, the link might not work. Here are the important remarks from interim coach Wilkins.
It is unclear what role Robinson would play with the Knicks. They already have four players sharing time at shooting guard and small forward and will add a fifth when Allan Houston is healthy.
The starting small forward, Tim Thomas, makes $13 million, and though he has struggled, is one of the team's only reliable 3-point shooters. Robinson is a high-flying slasher who has shot 50 percent from the field in his career, but he rarely attempts a 3-pointer.
In other words, Robinson duplicates a lot of what Trevor Ariza does. Ariza, the hustling, energetic 19-year-old rookie, has earned a spot in the rotation, and Wilkens said that was not likely to change.
Wilkens praised Robinson, but said that if he becomes a Knick, "He's not going to take away from Trevor. Trevor is an outstanding young man, and I love what he does."
The coaching staff is disappointed with Thomas, who is 9 for 30 from the field, although Wilkens said Thomas's starting job was not in jeopardy.
"I'm not going to give up on Tim after a couple of games,'' he said. "That's not fair to him, and it doesn't make any sense. Now, if it were to continue, yeah, you've got to make an adjustment."
