I really do think that Melo would allow himself to get traded but not sign an extension for the other team (since he can "get more if he signs during the offseason). Then, he'd re-sign with the Knicks and tricking the other team. Yeah, he wouldn't get the raise to $25 million a year but since he's a "real fan of the Knicks", who knows, he just might.
Which trade scenarios allow us to get good valueables for this year's draft (or next year's) and also clears up enough cap to sign 1 max (which would be re-signing Melo) in 2014????
