Yes, i would make the trade, Q for D-miles, right away. This is what I posted to another thread about the same subject...
If i should choose between d-miles and q-rich..right now the knicks might need better and more athletic defender like d-miles (and jeffries). Also Miles can play more closer to the basket and can also drive to the basket much better than Q..and knicks have already steady 3 point shooters so they would not need Q. But if i would be Thomas, i would not trade for new players, just try to get the chemistry right, cause the knicks already have young and old talent!
