Why amnesty kleiza when as an expirer his contract may have value in a trade?
Something to build between gay and Val is exactly why amare is a good fit (of course you are hoping for some luck w him being healthy). IMO you don't want gay seeing himself as a clear cut #1 option, and next to Val you need a scorer or you are asking too much
My trade idea is for what I think is perfect for the Knicks - but I'm not trying to make 1 sided trades, I honestly believe that it would be great for raptors
Marshall gives you the equivalent of a first round pick to develop at pg. Felton, Dudley, kleiza are all moveable sized contracts and so you keep flexible. And maybe most importantly you save about 5 mill and are allowed to use the Mle the next couple years. For what it's worth the trade machine shows Toronto as the big winner in the deal
