That starting lineup is looking really interesting now:
I don't think they intend to start Smith, they like what Landry Fields brings on both ends of the floor. Like most of the other players on the team, he's been playing much better since Lin started playing.
Smith will be part of the second team along Shumpert, Novak, Jeffries, Baron Davis (if he ever gets healthy).
I'd expect Smith and Shumpert to be splitting 6th man duties depending on whether the Knicks are struggling offensively or defensively at the time.
