Any chance the NBA takes a look at doing something about these states with no income tax? Seems unfair to other teams, no?
Basically if we renounce the rights to Curry, Buike, and Chandler we're looking at $13.35M now after the Felton signing.
So a sign and trade still remains our best bet for getting Melo.
We could renounce those three and do a S&T of cap room for Melo with the cap room getting the 125% boost. Or we could do a combination of cap room and some combination of Chandler/Buike/Gallo/pick/whatever.
Assuming it's Gallo+Chandler for Melo, with a re-signed Buike we'd look like this:
Bench: Turiaf, Douglas, Walker, HOU#1, Fields, Rautins, Jordan, 1 to 3 '11 second rounders

Damn that sucks, we would have to get rid of Chandler and Gallo/Randolph
Lets hope we can S&T Buike + Randolph + 1st rounders for Melo. Buike I think will have a good year (15+ PPG) so he will have good value
^You do raise a good point. I just feel that Gallo can be very useful as the 3 point guy. And he has a lot of potential...
But then again, Buike is the 3 point guy
i dont think we will be trading Gallo or Randolph because they have so much upside that walsh would either put them as untouchables or be stupid to trade them
and also if we do a sign and trade they cant say who they want because the knicks have to agree otherwise he just walks and who said Carmelo is going to get a max?
