Players the knicks might target before the regular season
 
Trade 1 - NY sends Jalen Rose and Jerome James to Portland for Darius Miles, Theo Ratliff and Steve Blake. Portland gets a TON of cap room next season AND they use James as insurance in case Przbilla jets. NY uses Miles as the starting SF and Ratliff to back up the PF and Center spots. Blake is also a great backup PG to Marbury, letting Crawford play just the 2 guard.

Trade 2 - Kenyon Martin to NY for Maurice Taylor and the #29 pick. Denver can draft a PF and Mo Tay will fit well in their system for this year. Next year, they have cap room for a free agent and Denver is OUT from under KMarts contract. NY gets a very emotional power forward who can play both ends of the floor to play along side a passive eddy curry. He will also be more recovered from his surgery which is being reported as doing much better.
With these two deals, NY keeps Francis, Marbury and Crawford for the three headed monster Isiah has dreamed of, while adding a long and athletic SF and a rugged PF to man the paint. If Martin doesn't recover quickly, then Frye starts at PF. They also have Curry and Ratliff at the Center spot, giving NY depth and toughness at that spot.
These two deals give NY the chance to tell each player to produce or sit. NY could then draft Shawne Williams, Mardy Collins or Rudy Fernandez for backcourt depth. These two trades would also add much needed defense and rid ourselves of some headcases. I think Isaiah will make Francis/Marbury/Crawford work. It may leave Robinson out in the cold, but N8 could see time off the bench. N8 could also be used as trade bait with Atlanta for Harrington along with Lee.

i would like the first and second trade a lot, we just have to hope it happens and if we give up #29 we need to use 20 wisely. let's go knicks

If the Knicks make a trade, they will need to send out more players than they take back. With the 2 1st rounders, there is no room to expand the roster and with the large contracts I don't think any trades are possible.

However ...

Isiah needs to trade Nate + #20 + #29 for a lottery pick. I'm sure some team (maybe Minny) would be willing to do it.

BTW: Say no to Kenyon Martin and Darius Miles !!!

What kind of scrub is denver going to draft at 29 in one of the weakest drafts in recent history.

The key to the Kenyon Martin trade is his salary , not the 29th pick.

Mo Taylor is a free agent after this season.

bracer028 06-03-2006 09:50 PM

dalembert for francis and frye and couple of future draft picks

AKADS 06-03-2006 09:50 PM

If you want KMart you will have to give up Crawford

The REAL Next KNICK 06-03-2006 09:57 PM

NO,NO,NO This will never work. If NY decides to keep larry around, and then bring in Miles, Kmart without getting rid of Steph and Francis is a recipe for DISASTER!! Too many bad attitudes, that team will literally implode. Terrible trades

The REAL Next KNICK 06-03-2006 10:57 PM

marbury doesnt have a bad attitude, i can see francis but marbury keeps his cool. Trust me he's not like francis or no where near k-mart

bringthetruth 06-04-2006 10:52 AM

WHAT THE KNICKS LACK,A HEALTHY KMART AND A HUNGRY MILES HELPS THIS TEAM DEFENSIVELY.

NYneeds guys who can defend not scorers, they have that already.

Milkman 06-04-2006 10:56 AM

NY needs a system like phoenix has... just get D'antoni's bro to coach them

wang4three 06-04-2006 10:57 AM

Kenyon and Stephon don't like each other very much, remember?

Milkman 06-04-2006 10:59 AM

wang4three i honestly believe you are the best poster on ISH. seriously im not trying to be sarcastic or anything, just wanted to say that.
