Actually, it's worse because Denver's roster was better than the current Nets. I think Amare and Lin for Deron works for both teams. I also don't think it would hurt us in marketing as much as people think.
Deron has to want to sign with the Knicks & the Nets will have to want that package back. Thats why I'm saying it wouldn't happen on either side.
-Why would Deron sign with the Knicks over re-signing with the Nets or signing in Dallas?
-Why would the Nets trade Deron for an "injury-prone" PF who's due $64 Million and is the laughingstock of the same town?
Just being even keeled on the scenario, but I'd love to see it happen.
