    NYK Firesale: What Trades would you suggest?

    I did a similar thread for the Nets, but the Knicks are in pretty bad shape this season. They simply will not be contending, and even if they turn it around they may not make the playoffs. Being a lottery team with no cap room doesn't bode well for re-signing Melo, so the Knicks may have to look into trading him or face what Cleveland face in 2010.

    So, assuming they have a fire sale, this is what they have to offer.

    Melo: 23 mil expiring
    Bargnani: 12 mil one year, Early termination (ET) 12 mil next year
    Chandler: 14 mil this year, 14 mil next
    Amare: 21.5 mil this year, ET 23 mil next year
    JR Smith 5.5 mil, then 6 mil, then 6 mil
    Shumpert: 1 mil this year, 2 mil next year
    Beno Udrih: 1 mil this year
    Felton: a little under 4 mil this year and the following two seasons
    Hardaway Jr.: 2 mil or < for next three years.


    What deals do you think you could get done with these guys?

    Because he heard the refs were blowing fowls.

    Melo would never stay in Detroit but I would do this to get away from Smith. Jennings has been pretty good aside from his defense.

    Sacramento is really active right now and still have assests. I'd try to move either Smith or Chandler there. Or maybe both....

    Melo and JR to the Bulls for Deng, Butler, Taj and 2014 first
    Chandler to Cleveland for Bynum
    Felton, Metta, and 2018 first to Toronto for Lowry

    Knicks will clear out all salary but Amare and Bargnani while adding a nice future piece in Butler and a potential lottery pick. Amare and Bargs also become attractive expiring a at the end of the season.

    Lowry, Udrih, Prigs
    Shumpert, THJ
    Deng, Butler
    Amare, Taj
    Bargs, Tyler

    It's not great obviously, but it gives you good rotation players going forward in Shumpert and THJ (who may both blossom without Melo) as well as Butler and Taj, plus oodles of cap space moving forward and a good pick in a stacked draft
    It's still a game and you'd rather win it than lose it.

    The only one of those deals that would be considered is Chandler for Bynum. The other two deals would involve hilarious laughter followed by dial tone....

    I dont know how realistic it is, but if the Knicks are going to blow it up, I'd hope their able to get into the lottery this year. I doubt Chandler would be able to get it done, but I'm sure Melo would.
    Go Knicks!

    All time

    Tyson is their best chip. Dolan won't trade Melo.

    Tyson to OKC for Perkins, Lamb and a filler (i.e. Thabeet)

    Why the hell would NY do this? Tyson is legit when healthy. I mean Lamb's definitely been impressive but I'm not sold on him enough to want to trade away one of the few good centers in the league.

    no thank you there is nothing outside of Chandler that Toronto needs from NY
