The Knicks are expected to try and pry Tony Parker away from the Spurs in order to pair him with Amar'e Stoudemire.

A person close to both players told the New York Daily News that Parker and Stoudemire have talked about playing together in either New York or Miami.

"It's perfect for Tony because he wants to be in New York and he wants to play with Amar'e," said the source.

The Knicks need a point guard to play with Stoudemire, who will reportedly finalize a huge contract with New York this weekend.

New York has contacted New Orleans about Chris Paul and there are free agent options such as Raymond Felton and Luke Ridnour.

He would help in NY. Not a championship team, but good enough to help make the East less of a joke.

Why does Parker want to leave SA? Because the Pop loves George Hill, and there were some trade rumors flying around after they got knocked out of the playoffs. Anyway, Parker isn't the ideal PG for a guy like Amare.

Why does Parker want to leave SA?

b/c they are trying to use george hill and dont want to pay parker after this season (his contract year) so they may either get rid of him for the right offer, or just let him expire and walk, but spurs are smart, they will trade him to get something back

When it dawns on Amar'e Stoudemire that he'll no longer be running the pick-and-roll with Steve Nash, he might not want to join the Knicks. That's why it's Donnie Walsh's job to find Stoudemire a running mate and the player expected to be targeted is Tony Parker.

As the Daily News reported in April, the Spurs' point guard is hoping to be traded to the Knicks and has long wanted to play with Stoudemire. A person close to both players said Stoudemire and Parker hatched a plan to join forces in either Miami or New York.

"It's perfect for Tony because he wants to be in New York and he wants to play with Amar'e," said the source.

Since Parker is under contract with San Antonio, the Knicks would have to work out a trade, which would likely require the club taking back a big contract. A sign-and-trade with David Lee is a possibility, but not likely. The Knicks have also talked to New Orleans about Chris Paul but they don't have the resources to get him.

The top free agent point guard is Charlotte's Raymond Felton, who is highly regarded by the Knicks. Another free agent option is veteran Luke Ridnour, a solid player who is not nearly in the same class as Parker, Paul and Felton.

The Knicks have several trading pieces, including Wilson Chandler and Eddy Curry, the latter of whom has an expiring contract. Curry could have a role on the team with Lee likely gone and Stoudemire stepping into the power forward position.

If Curry is dealt, look for the Knicks to sign a center, with Brendan Haywood at the top of their list. One problem, though, is that Dallas would like to re-sign Haywood, who has also drawn interest from Cleveland and Miami. Heat president Pat Riley is scheduled to meet with Haywood Saturday in North Carolina.

The danger of being an expirer. This what guys like Pierce didn't want to see happen to them.

It seems like once you have 1 year left, fans start thinking about a life without a specific player.

If NY can't get a distributing PG of some sort (they at least shoulda gone for Blake), then getting Amar'e is kinda useless. He needs someone to play off of. He isn't a back to the basket post man. Paker could be an ok get but not if it means giving up Gallinari. If they can do a Lee sign and trade or Curry/Chandler, then go for it. But if not, they'll need someone like Felton to hold them over.

Pass on Curry.
I like Chandlers game but I can't see where the Spurs would give up TP for him. I know Spurs need a big man but if Splitter comes over he would take care of a huge hole in our line up. If we take any deal from NY it would have to involve D Lee.

Wearing a Yankees cap and leaning against a building on Eighth Ave., as he waited for his limo to pick him up from the musical "Rock of Ages," the free-agent forward confirmed that he will be meeting with the Knicks Monday, possibly to make a deal.

Then he dropped a bombshell that seemed too good to be true:

"I've talked to Carmelo Anthony that he needs to come out here," Stoudemire said. "I've talked to Tony Parker. Both guys are ready to join me if I decide to come here. So we will see if we can work it out."

----------------------------------------
Strategically, it could be possible...San Antonio would have to really consider a David Lee Sign and trade...and Melo can either force a trade involving Curry's expiring contract and pieces or just wait until next summer...


Tony Parker

Carmelo Anthony

Amare' Stoudemire

Nice Trio!

As of right now Melo is too out there. Denver won't trade him until the dead-line but thats irrelevant cuz he'll sign that extension soon with the new CBA coming out next year. Lee for Parker is interesting, but is Lee the big man the Spurs need next to Duncan?

And yeah, Amare seems pretty confident.

They dont have anything to offer. Thats one of the drawbacks of tearing down your roster for clearing cap space.

If Im Denver, theres no way Id want Gallo/Chandler/Douglas/Curry for Carmelo Anthony.

Not to mention they want a ransom for Melo since its hard to replace a Top 5-8 player like him.

Knicks and every other team are better off waiting until next summer for a chance in Melo. No way they trade him this season and expect anything close to equal.

We can't.

It's either get Stoudemire and another guy this year, or wait for next season to get Melo(if he doesn't extend) and Parker. A max this year eliminates the chances of us getting another great player, unless Gallinari transforms into some version of Nowitzki(or at least one of the Top 20 players in the league) and we can trade him for Melo, who needs to have his mind on leaving(so that the Nuggets could trade him)

So, chances are like 0.01%, and that's still a lot

If Melo doesnt sign an extension he is an idiot.

Denver fans have given him the benefit of the doubt through his idiocy on the court, multiple arrests, and Stop Snitching. The only other city I think that would embrace him the same way is DC and thats due to Baltimore being in driving distance.

Melo needs to stop thinking he is LeBron or Wade. He is not anywhere near as marketable as both of those guys. So why try to force your way to a major market? :shrug:

If all three want to play together they sign amare this year. Dont add any players with more than 1 year deal and sign Carmelo and Parker next year. They both will be FA's next year. The big FA plan would take 2 years now but it would still work. Also a new CB agreement might lower the max salary next year, making the cap space go farther also.

Hes not just not on their level as a player. But Melo isnt on their level as an endorser. Excluding Kobe because hes a douche with a vendetta against media, but Bron and Wade and Dwight are great endorsers for companies.

All 3 are class individuals and dont give you the "thug" feel a guy like Melo gives off. Hes grown up but I dont think he can ever shake that label he received for his actions when he was younger.

The last time Denver sent a guy to NY he came back an alcoholic with an addiction to cocaine.

If Carmelo goes to the Denver brass and states to them that he wants to be traded and he would like to go to the Knicks, Denver would have to oblige or risk losing him for nothing next season. One thing you don't want on your team or in your locker room is an unhappy player.

Other teams can offer better packages than the Knicks, but that is a big gamble, because Melo would have to sign an extension or else he could just leave the team that traded for him high and dry.

The Knicks can use Eddy Curry's expiring contract+ Wilson Chandler+ Gallinari and get the deal done. Or replace Curry with Lee, if the Nuggets want to engage in a long term contract to Lee.

Everything is really in Melo's hands.

The reason the Knicks have gone to trying Amar'e and Tony is because they feel that they most likely won't be getting Lebron James. This is their plan B strategy. However, in order to get Parker they will have to give up at least one good young prospect such as Danilo or Wilson and a 1st rounder, otherwise the Knicks will be looking at plan C.

#2 It isn't even a definite that Amar'e signs, but he may want to talk to Tony Parker and Lebron first before he signs or he is probably going to see what happens with Lebron. It is all together possible that if Lebron decides on Chicago, or the Nets he could join him there instead of opting for the Knicks,

My general feeling is, however, that the Knicks will end up with Amar'e at best w/ a very slim to no chance at Lebron or Tony Parker (unless they are willing to part with the aforementioned pieces).

the knicks are making a lot of noise in FA considering nobody wants to play here (according to most experts ive been listening too) ...
i dont think any of these superteam scenarios are possible... but its nice to dream..

Ehh it would be a start for New York, but obviously no winner, probably a low seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs, which would still be a huge improvement for them.

How does this happen? We trade Wilson and Curry?

2011 you sign him with cap space.

No insulting or baiting at all... let's just be realistic, Knicks have nothing Spurs want. Parker is already an expirer. Curry doesn't help them at all.

The Knicks are expected to try and pry Tony Parker away from the Spurs in order to pair him with Amar'e Stoudemire.

A person close to both players told the New York Daily News that Parker and Stoudemire have talked about playing together in either New York or Miami.

"It's perfect for Tony because he wants to be in New York and he wants to play with Amar'e," said the source.

The Knicks need a point guard to play with Stoudemire, who will reportedly finalize a huge contract with New York this weekend.

New York has contacted New Orleans about Chris Paul and there are free agent options such as Raymond Felton and Luke Ridnour.

The Knicks will never learn will they.. So now they're going to pick up a couple more over the hill guys and pay them way more money than they're worth.. :clap::clap: WOW.. I'm not saying either guy has no value, but let's face it, parker is more than likely on the downside of his career and Amare, while still in his prime, still plays like a cream puff most of the time.. I guess the point is this, if Nash couldn't help make Amare a winner then how will Parker..??

parker is 28 and amare is 27. amare is known for his monster dunks, something that a guy who isn't soft does.

you know, im not even a knicks fan, but i get kind of annoyed when every single thread i see has knicks bashing involved in it. perhaps this is why i never venture to the nba forum.

I think the Knicks will get Amar'e Stoudamire, and that's only because of the Max deal along with the relationship with the head coach. I do think they could do a sign and trade with David Lee, and send him to the Spurs for Tony Parker. Then they will still have Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, and Eddy Curry. If they could possibly give Joe Johnson the Max then they will be sitting pretty for next year.

By getting Parker and Amare, will they be more enticing in the eyes of Wade, Bosh and Lebron? They can land one of them if that happens in my opinion...

If I were a lame -ss Miami Heat fan and if the FO failed to get LeBron and Chris to team up with Dwayne, I would steal that pair(Tony+Amare) from the Knicks and have them team up with Dwayne and target Carmelo when he hits the FA.

Spurs need a SF and the Knicks have one in Wilson Chandler, so a package starting with him will get the ball roilling. If I were the the Spurs, i would have to listen, because it seems like TP's name is being brought up everywhere, even though he insists he wants to be a Spur. i know rumors are gonna circulate like always, but I really believe he wants out.

Now barring FA acquisitions, Bucks are better too. Minimum.

The Bulls were .500 last year- missing their 2 best players for a stretch of games. That would affect any team. So the Bulls "quality" was much higher than .500, more like .575.

But that aside:

The Bulls will be much better than .500, the Bucks will be much better, and the Heat will very possible be better. The Bobcats will be better- not to mention there will be "surprise" teams I'm sure. We'll see.

and u curiously left out that a Knicks team with Parker and Amare would be able to beat out at least the Bobcats for a spot? I mean come on...nobody knows who is going to land where but to say that two all stars from the west cant come east and get a squad into the playoffs is laughable. Lemme guess....even with those two players, the Nets would have a better core right?

Don't bother KnicksFanSince91, 90% of PSD hates the Knicks. We can never catch a break here. We're not a playoff team, have been in the NBA Basement for nearly a decade now, and yet, people still hate us and don't want us to succeed.

To say that potentially, a team of:

Parker
*Mike Miller(?)
Danilo Gallinari
Amare Stoudemire
Okafor/Biedrins (using Eddy Curry's expiring)

is not a PLAYOFF TEAM? Come on. Add in the fact that the SSOL system is SUCCESSFUL during the Regular Season, And our bench: Douglas, Chandler, Rautins, Fields, Jerome Jordan, Earl Barron, *Raja Bell (maybe? or House). I think that's a 6th-7th seed.

Lebroom with this team you have the worst NBA defence (like always with D Antoni) , sign Haywood , Melo , Jarret Jack and trade Curry to a SG could be better for you.

Dude... Tony Parker is a San Antonio Spur. He plays Defense. Mike Miller is a decent/good one on one defender (of course he's not stopping Kobe or Wade, but you get the idea). Gallinari during the last 2 months of the season wanted to guard the opposing team's best player and has shown effort and heart on defense. Amare Stoudemire, though Defense is not his strongest aspect, he can still block shots and be intimidating on the paint. Okafor/Biedrins are shot blockers, they play Defense.

Come on... Mike D's Suns before RANKED 14th, 15th, 17th; around those lines, in DEFENSE. Which means they were never the worst Defensive team. While showcasing a Juggernaut Offense, they still managed to be better than the other 15 teams on Defense. That's not the "WORST DEFENSE" in my Book.

I'm not Nicks bashing, I'm surprised by what they're (supposedly) after.. Amare doesn't rebound and shoots far more jump shots then he does rebound or crash the boards.. Maybe that's just a perception thing but it's odd they would give up a tough rebounder like Lee for Amare.. And I get that Parker's a young guy but he's also been injury prone and appears to have lost a step.. So yep this kind of surprises me a bit especially in the light of what they've gone through the last few years.. Also I don't care what annoys you, I just think it's curious at best..

I think it's funny that teams want Mike Miller, the dude didn't even start for the Timberwolves when he played ball for half the season.

Anyways

How about:
NY gets: Parker, Hollins
SA gets: Kevin Love, Sessions
MN gets: Lee, Chandler

I'd do that trade in a minute. I don't understand how the spurs are writing off Tony already. I just found out he is 28. I thought he was older how there writing him off and want to trade him

Lee is a good rebounder/ stat stuffer, but you can't ever add "tough" as an adjective when describing his game. He doesn't know the meaning of boxing out.
