Re: If Melo had waited until FA..
We wouldn't have the MLE though, and we couldn't re-sign Wilson.
So that would leave us with this (+ draft picks):
Raymond Felton / Toney Douglas
Landry Fields / Bill Walker / Roger Mason Jr.
Carmelo Anthony / Danilo Gallinari
Amar'e Stoudemire / Anthony Randolph
Timofey Mozgov / Ronny Turiaf
Right now at least we have a better PG and the MLE (if it still exists), and we don't need the depth at the 3 IMO.
