Lamarcus Aldridge
 
I think he's available in 2015? If available you think he would be a good fit with Melo? I like his game. Thoughts?

So you want to trade shumpert, chandler, the 24th pick and still not quite get Aldridge?0

im going all out for irving, we'd have the cap space to add 2 and a half superstars

He's the best PF in the game IMO. That being said...isn't it rather early to be talking about the 2015/2016 season?

True but pretty much this upcoming season we will be standing pat with pretty much the same roster with some minor changes. The following year we Have Melo, Tyson and Amare as expiring contracts or opt out.

Just curious on what you guys thought of a Melo/Aldrige combo. I really like his play and I think he could compliment Melo. Of course we would need a good PG to run the offense but think that could be an option?

Well not next year but In 2015 Melo can opt out and Chandler and Amare will be on their last year. Melo is not going anywhere but Amare is definetly done.

I know it's a pipe dream but he would be awesome in NY.

yea i meant till then, most likely melo will be resigned and he will opt out for a longer deal unless his performance drops in the following years
i would dump amare and chandler to free up cap to go hard at irving.
melo plays his best when there is a pg that demands the ball as much as he does and felton doesnt do it consistently or defers to melo way too much which allows defenses to set in easily. the ball would move more freely when the pg is calling the shots driving for his own shot while passing it back out to melo to get his. having a scorer in irving who can also demand his own shot is what melo needs with some big bodies down low for rebounding
