Default Trade Idea: Bobcats/Knicks

Cats keeping Raymond Felton?. Sources say the Bobcats want to hang on to guard Raymond Felton, but swingman Adam Morrison, center Nazr Mohammed and forward/center Sean May are definitely available.



Each teams garbage could be another team's treasure. (ok, maybe not treasure....)

Bobcats never play Nazr. May is overweight and injured. Trading for Diop shows that Cats have no use for either player. So they get rid of two players they don't want, and "buy low" with Curry. Curry, once healthy and head straight, could be a great low post presence playing next to Okafor. Bobcats probably aren't 2010 free agency players anyway, and Curry's potential is worth the additional salary over Mohammed's contract. Mohammed is signed thru 2011 also. Also, Brown coached Curry in New York.

Knicks can't and won't use Curry in run and gun system. With Curry's loss, Randolph gone, and Jerome James (ha) injury, Mohammed can provide a backup big man role to add to Knicks rotation. If May ever gets healthy/loses weight, he can see if he can crack D'Antoni's rotation. More importantly, Nazr's 2010 salary is $4.2 million less than Curry's, freeing up more cap space for free agents. Nazr would probably be easier to move next year for 2010, due to his more reasonable salary.

Two teams have lemons, make some lemonade.

Knowing the Knicks, Nazr's contract is too long.

If I'm the Knicks I wait to trade Curry until next year when his contract is one year shorter and he actually plays some minutes and regains some trade value. They basically made the impossible happen once with Randolph, so I think maybe they can do it again next year with Curry.

Still not a bad deal considering it would save the Knicks about $4m in 2010 and Mohammed may actually play some minutes.

Reasonable trade... but the Knicks don't want a 3 yr deal at all costs. If they can (try to) whip Curry into shape during the offseason and pre-season, then feed it to him relentless to inflate his stats, and can somehow trade him for a workable expirer, they are going to do it.

If somehow Curry proves untradeable for an expirer, I could see them making a move like this as a last desperation move.

Not a good thing to say about Curry.

Yes, but it's very risky to wait, especially when every team knows what Knicks are trying to do. This way, Knicks hedge their bet and if they get stuck with Nazr, won't be nearly as bad.

Anyone have Donnie Walsh's email address?

That's why a Curry/Nazr swap works for both teams.

From LB's perspective, better than Nazr. LB is an old school guy. He wants a big man who can post up.

I still haven't figured out why Larry Brown wasn't playing Nazr. He's obviously not a top level center, but there were times last year he was lookin solid next to Okafor. And he's serviceable at the least.

When was Nazr in New York before? Like 03 or 04? It seems like a long time ago.
