Riley also said the trade calls for Stephen Curry far outweigh those for Ellis: "Nobody is saying,'What will it take to get Monta Ellis?'"

i always felt curry was more of an SG

i hate looking back on that draft knowing the wiz traded the 5th pick for crap, and then sucked, when they could have a backcourt of wall and curry

Curry is far from being a good pg. Hes a great scorer, but he needs to develop his playmaking skills. Teams, shouldnt go after shoot first pgs. YOu need a pg who will make others better.

Not necessarily, sometimes you can have a wing player that is a very good facilitator and can fill that role and allow the PG to focus more on scoring.

Teams with a true pg( nash, williams , paul) have sucess. Westbrook is a shoot first pg, but as of late hes becoming better, same with rose. They are both shoot first pgs.

Curry has a long way to go. he should join chris pauls ball handling camp, just like what Harrrison barnes( a SMALL FORWARD) is doing.

Dont get me wrong, curry is a good player who poseses great shooting abilities, but he needs to get better at being a PG. PG skils what he needs.

Knicks dont care about Billups contract. he is a solid pg on the last year of his deal. So from the Warriors stand point, Billups would be a good addition to their team. he would bring them some needed leadership.

Doesn't matter anyway cuz Knicks arent getting Curry

other then dallas and pistons who in the last 10-15 years has had a good "true " PG and won a title???

when you have guys like melo,lebron,kobe,ect... the ball is gonna go threw them... you dont always need a pass first PG... although i do prefer them.

First, I don't think the Knicks are getting Curry, but why wouldn't Mark Jackson want a veteran pg who is a floor general, pretty good defensively(at least cares about defense) and has big game experience to run his offense? Plus, he's an expiring contract who can be used in a trade at the deadline in order to fill a need.

Fields is a starting 2G or a 6th man that can play the 2 or the 3 and hustles.

Douglas is also a good defender and instant offense of the bench. If they don't want him then he could be shipped to someone else. There seems to be some legit interest in him all around the league.

They really want out of Biedrins contract.

Lastly there will still be good players available at 17. They could get a Marshon Brooks or a Selby.

Billups to Golden State makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Why would the Warriors trade a young, potentially great point guard in the making for an expiring, old, on his way down point guard in Billups? Sure, he has the veteran swagger and ability, but he wouldn't help the Warriors in the long run and sure wouldn't make that much of an impact for them this coming year at all. Knicks fans can keep dreaming.... Curry and Ellis are both staying in Golden State.

People are not being ignorant because its the knicks, they are saying its a bad trade because it makes no sense for the gsw. Billups fits pretty well on that knicks team which is attempting to compete for a title. GS is not in the same boat. They have a promising young talent and a new coach who probably wants to build around that talent. Why would they trade him for some trash in hopes of being what, an 8 seed? It makes no sense for that team.

The knicks have nothing any team wants.

fields is good, but very raw and was succeeding on athletic ability alone last season, its why he faded after the all star break.

Chandler is always injured and has never been anything then a decent bench player.

Knicks are rolling with what they have because there is really no assets on that team except for Melo and Amare.

Golden State is going to be very active and will get a huge return on ellis or curry.

It's funny that you guys call that a bad deal, the way I look at it is this... Curry is good but he has little to no impact on games. Same goes for Ellis. Billups would be an upgrade at that position despite what you guys think. Big shot is a winner, knows what it takes to win, kind of like that point guard that's over the hill in Dallas. I don't even want the Knicks to do that trade anyway, were looking at Cp3 in case you didn't hear. And we can get him for the same package that you guys are scoffing at for Curry.

landry toney and billups have enough value.... i should have added this before ... beidrens in that deal would be to much... i meant to put that in there... but those three for curry and a 6 spot move up in draft would be a nice deal for both teams....especially considering they are trying to get ird of there current SG... and curry is too small to fill that position.

in 12 less minutes a game toney douglas avered only 8 points and 2 assist less then curry... and feilds is rare rookie who plays with experience of someone who has been in league for years... second only to griffin last season.... throw in a vet like billups... itsa good deal for both teams cause curry has a much higher ceiling then douglas.

You don't trade a lottery pick and your most valuable player to get out of a deal you don't like. Billups is good, sure, but not for much longer. Curry is just getting started.

First of all, why would the warriors want the AGING Billups for ONE year? The warriors aren't contenders and aren't a PG away from a title like a team like Miami or Atlanta. Fields and Douglas aren't difference makers. If the warriors wanted a player like Fields, they can just sign Battier for the MLE. Douglas is just a backup guard that they already have in Reggie Williams. And lastly, why would the warriors be trading the best 2 players in the deal AND the 11th pick.

The deal is horrible every way you look at it.

Now this trade makes sense. The Warriors would get their big PG who could defend SG to pair with Monta and a nice defender in Sefolosha. And both players are young. You sir are a breath of fresh air in this thread.

This is a good foundation for a trade although there would need to be some changes. Warrior's can't trade their first rounders until 2013, so it can be 2 second rounders or have to do something creative. Maybe you switch the 24th pick into a second rounder and the future first rounder wouldn't need to be included.

Curry
Harden
Durant
Ibaka
Perkins

Westbrook
Ellis
Sefolosha

Biedrins/Udoh
