Default Just a thought.

I don't know what happened to the "Trade, Rumors and Thoughts" thread but I think we owe it to ourselves to look at a big man. Ryan Hollins. He's been waived by Clevelad. I think he'd fit in well here. He's tall, athletic and would be a solid backup to Chandler. JJ Hickson woudlnt be a bad signing either. We need a backup sf. I think his lack of production in Sac was more due to an awkward fit. He was a quality player in Cleveland not too long ago. Ironically, he's the reaon Amare isn't a Cavalier. Danny Ferry's dumb ass didnt trade for Stat because he didnt wanna give up Hickson lol How's that working out now?

Not being funny at all but why not give Jordan some court time?

The team isn't gonna play 11 guys a night, unless there some blowouts, or players resting.

At this point, I honestly think the team has everything it needs right now.

Future-wise they need to be working on a draft pick, 1st or 2nd.

I was wondering why I lost like 200 posts. Didn't know it got deleted. I wonder if JJ Hickson might give us a shot for the rest of the year at the min. We could use another big.

I think he didnt work out cuz Sacramento has so many guards they have them playing SF. Not much room for playing time at all.

I think the Knicks see Jordan as a down the line kinda guy. I was all for sending him out there to take his lumps but if youre nor gonna commit to developing him right now, dobt play him. Same thing happened with Thabeet. He was a project but they onlt wanted to give him small minutes. Guys like that dont benefit from short spurts of time.

To me, Hollins and Hickson provide immediate upgrades at our weakest positions on the bench. Furthermore, we get to cut a guard who is rotting on the bench. We play too many guards as it is.

The thread itself is still here, although at least 90 % of its content was deleted.

Had to be a server issue.

Another big was needed- even before injuries to amare and jeffries


Here's all that needs to happen for the Dynasty to start next year

1-Draft Jared Cunningham- buy a late 1st
2-Trade Lin + amare + fields for Bargnani + Calderon + Kleiza + Amir Johnson
3-sign jeffries + novak + in a perfect world spencer hawes more likley Jason Smith



Calderon/Shumpert/Cunningham
JR smith
Carmelo/kleiza/Novak
Bargnani/Jason smith
Chandler/jeffries/amir johnson

12 man roster built perfectly around Carmelos strengths, best offensive team ever put together that would play defense well enough to win- and you'd have calderon to play long enough to let Cunningham and shumpert to develop


You could not build a better roster with any realistic (if amare/lin/fields to grab bargnani/calderon/.... Was realistic)

I would like that trade if it didn't lead to a No Defense starting five.
Maybe you could start Shump so he can take care of the opponent Pg/Sg.

On the other hand I think that Bargnani is the perfect piece in our frontcourt.
Melo-Bargs-Chandler, man that'd be awesome
