Default why not try?

and trade jose for chauncey.

We can then buy-out chauncey (no need to use amnesty).

Jose would fit well in NY with amare and tyson behind him on defence.
With their planned trade of Turiaf to the wiz this will bring them under the cap while securing an experienced pg on a shorter deal.

We get the extra cap space next year while still preserving the amnesty if we need it for another player.

I'd like to see Jose given the opportunity to play for a winning team.

I don't see why NYK would make that trade? Chauncey is clearly the better player and leader. He also fits perfectly on that team with his playoff experience and being a former champion and all. I know Jose has a good 3 point shot but Chauncey fits that team well as a threat on the perimeter with Melo, Amare and Chandler usually banging down low.

That's going to be a wicked team to watch.

i guess you haven't heard that they are cutting him and using their amnesty in order to pay tyson chandler.

they can't keep him and sign chandler because they don't have space under the salary cap. they can, however, trade him for someone who makes less coin.

this trade is legal and would give them enough space for chandler.

Jose still makes 10 million a year? Throw in Melo & Amare's max deals and Chandlers 12 million a year on top of that.. I doubt they would want to pay Jose that much when they need to use that money wisely on role players the fill out the roster.
