Default Chauncey Billups + Landry Fields for Andrew Bynum

How would this trade change both teams chances this season?

NYK badly needs a center while Lakers need a veteran leader Billups as replacement to old Fisher.


Knicks #2 spot is going to suck so badly though.

For sure this ain't going to happen. Just curious on both team chances this season if you'll swap those players since the both teams have weaknesses that might helped get improve if you'll swap them.

Neither team is doing that trade.

Knicks need a center but they also want CP3 and if they sign Bynum then there won't be any room left for CP3.
Both of them are injury prone but Bynum is a bigger risk.

So, basically Landry Fields for Andrew Bynum? Mario Chalmers for Chris Paul? Sounds fair, right?

He's an expiring contract. You don't give up a young, potential all-star center for a role player and an expiring contract.

The Lakers are paying Kobe & Gasol alone about $47 million next season. Even if they got rid of Bynum and everyone else on the roster, Dwight Howard isn't signing a contract starting at $11 million a year.

I thought Kobe + Gasol contract is about $44 million and not 47? Not sure about this though.

If I'm not mistaken, in the new cba, new signed player can only be sign in a maximum or $15M or 14? (LOL I'm confused, someone pls. clarify this)

If cap room is still the same, given the scenario that you have told me. They still have a shot on signing Dwight.

Kobe and Gasol making $47 million combined plus the cap hold for 10 minimum-salary players (about $5 million total) comes out to $52 million..... leaving a starting salary of $6 million for Howard.

Not happening.

They'd also have to find takers for Steve Blake, Ron Artest, and Luke Walton (only one could be amnestied).... plus the above mentioned cap-holds....

So no, they don't have a shot at signing Dwight Howard in free agency unless he's willing to literally leave $70 million on the table.
