The Knicks are expected to explore trading Wilson Chandler, possibly packaging him with the expiring contract of Eddy Curry to free up long-term cap space.
The Knicks "would love to trade for a premier outside-shooting big man," according to the New York Post, and the arrival of forwards Anthony Randolph and Kelenna Azubuike has made Chandler somewhat expendable (along with Chandler's hernia and ankle surgeries, and his recent pot arrest)

Planning for next off season already. I like. They are not going to contend next season but building looking forward to the future may not be a bad idea. Hopefully they do better in FA than they did this year.

there's only one premier outside shooting big man in the league and he just signed a huge contrac twith the mavs...this is why the Knicks dont go anywhere, god it must suck to be a knicks fan, klinda like being a clipper fan.

Outside shooting big man is short list. Okur? Villanueva? Murphy? Either way I don't like this move at all. At this point there is no reason to trade Curry because he's expiring and Chandler is a valuable asset on a cheap contract. This would have to mean that Azubuike is looking back to 100% or close to it and they believe Bill Walker is legit.

Wilson Chandler was arrested for pot? He looks like such a good kid.

I can see Nets, after Jordan Farmar, they could really use someone who can be a solid SG/SF, creating a great backup to help develop Lopez and Favors.

Twolves88
07-11-2010, 10:09 PM
Twolves would love to get ahold of him.... don't know what we would trade though. Flynn?

Rubio
Chandler
Johnson
Love

Walsh is in no rush to trade him. So i expect to get some real value to chandler.

I don't see A'Mare signing with the Knicks this season knowing "they will not contend".

If I were the Knicks, I would trade Wilson Chandler/D.Gallanari & expiring contract of Eddie Curry to acquire a perennial all-star backcourt player to go with Ray Felton.

Gilbert Arenas??

C) A'Mare
PF) A.Randolph
SF) D.Gallanari
SG) G.Arenas
PG) R.Felton

IMO.. that lineup would contend. Especially if Carmelo Anthony doesnt come to NY after the season, they would have arenas on the books. Then after Felton leaves Via F/A, they can go after replace Felton with Chris Paul

i doubt they want anything to do with gilbert arenas' contract.

They already making the Warriors Players seem like they are the best but if you really think about they were all Injured Plague even when year before. Randolph is a good shot blocking player but its hard for him to stay healthy. Turiaf is a good back-up C that had knee problems which will stay with him and Azubuike was injured for the whole year last yr and the year before had some other sort of injuries.

So trading Wilson Chandler isn't the best thing in the world to do. Curry contract ends next season anyways just wait it out

smh knicks always doing trades. But this is good news for chandler, most players who leave the knicks do better in their careers.
