Re: IF we trade Melo, what deal would you want?
Since the Knicks pretty much know that Melo wants to come to play in NY (no not in Brooklyn, in MSG) the Knicks will figure out exactly how to obtain him. Even if they have to give up 2 players from their starting line-up in order to obtain Melo. Most likely Wilson Chandler and Landry Fields plus a #1 draft pick they can get from Houston in a deal for Anthony Randolph.
Before you all say that the Knicks have nothing to offer look at Wilson Chandler and rookie sensation Landry Fields. Chandler is a solid offensive player, is up there with Amare in shot blocks, and is a perimeter shooter as well as being great in driving down the lane.
Fields has been called the steal of the last NBA draft. 2nd round 39th overall and has been a solid offensive and defensive player as well as leads all Guards in rebounds in the league. If Blake Griffin wasn't playing Fields would win the Rookie of the Year award hands down.
So now tell me these 2, along with a #1 draft pick, isn't a good offer for Carmelo Anthony?
