Calderon would be a great fit at pg for these Knicks- IMO better than Felton. And Bargnani is not only guaranteed to be an upgrade over amare he is THE Perfect fit skill wise next to Carmelo. The perfect #2.
The big loss in that trade is shumpert - but if you see him as a 2 and not a 1 than it would be worth it to get Bargnani.
