Good read

Quote:
Multiple other reports called the deal “close”.

It should be noted that Chandler is one of Anthony’s better friends on the Knicks roster.

As laid out this is a trade-off on the court for New York. On one hand, while Chandler had a rough last season he is still one of the NBA’s better rim protecting big men. They will miss his presence inside. However at the point Calderon is an upgrade over Felton — the triangle needs three point shooters and Calderon does that (44.9 percent last season), plus is a low turnover guy. Calderon plays smart, but is used to having the ball in his hands more, it will be an adjustment. Felton struggled last season in just about every way, so there is some addition by subtraction there.

Plus the Knicks get Wayne Ellington and more importantly Shane Larkin, who has promise.

The Knicks also save money. Chandler and Felton make a combined $19.4 million. Dalembert is set to make $3.8 million but can be bought out for $1.8 million. Calderon, Ellington and Larkin combined make just $11.5 million.

Deal done!

The Knicks have reached an agreement in principle to send Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton to the Mavericks in exchange for Jose Calderon, Samuel Dalembert, Shane Larkin, Wayne Ellington, the 34th pick and 51st pick in the 2014 draft.
The Mavericks finally have a reliable center and they also have a little room to play with with respect to cap space after they sign Dirk Nowitzki to a new deal. Chandler had one of his best seasons of his career with the Mavericks in 2010-11 on his way to an NBA championship,

Absolutely freakin' awesome! We are in good hands. Thank you, Jimmy Dolan, for having the smarts to get Phil in and walk away. This is a great start to my Summer.

Don't worry we will probably get Felton back in a few years again anyways. Good trade.

I think we make more moves to fix the cap for 2015, by the way I'm hearing that they are trying to move dalembert and larkin in seperate deals. I would like to keep larkin tho.

Glad Tyson and Felton are gone. Wish we didn't have to take on Calderon's contract but whatever.

Needed a starting NBA PG and he can shoot. If anything the guy doesnt shoot enough.

Larkin doesnt project to be more than a backup type player but he can shoot.
