Makes absolutely no sense at all for NY to buy out Melo instead of trading him. But this is the Knicks, the only organization dumb as **** enough where I believe this is a legitimate possibility.

Melo to Houston looks much more likely. There is a 3-team deal being discussed between HOU/NYK/POR at this very moment.

I don't get why Cavs fans (or anyone) think Melo would be an improvement...

Dont think this will happen, but if the Knicks do buy out Melo, hes going to the Cavaliers. Cavaliers have Lebron, Rockets have CP3, so they are about even on this. However, Rockets have Mike D'Antoni, Cavaliers dont.

If he goes, I'll wish him nothing but the best. I'll route for him to win his first ring. He's a phenomenal player and I hope everyone can understand his potential.

If this happens, this will pile on issues that the NBA has. A team waives a player which is capable of putting up 20PPG and top teams can sign him up for peanuts.

Warriors are in a league of their own right now and competitive balance should be thrown out the window if Cleveland some how signs him. We can expect Cleveland VS GSW for another 4 years.

Irving
Smith
Melo
LeBron
Love

Will make the finals every single year with that.

You ever think that maybe no team wants to trade for his bum ass??


He is a cancer plain and simple. I don't care how he leaves, but his presence only stunts the growth of this team.

Yeah, at this point we would love Melo and Crawford, especially not having to give anything up. Its frustrating to see PG and Butler both dealt when we could of offered a much better package.

The trade that makes most sense from all rumors is the threeway involving Portland/Houston/NY.

NY Gets:

Harkless
Leonard

Houston Gets:

Melo

Portland Gets:

Ryan Anderson

Houston supposedly has 10 million in non-guaranteed contracts that become guarnteed after today. So if a trade happens it most likely happens today.

Deal above makes sense for all teams. Houston Gets Melo and gets rid of a bad contract in Anderson (houston probably has to include some picks or assets), Portland gets rid of Leonard and frees up time at the 3 and NYK get a young piece in Harkless and take on a bad contract in Leonard.

I like this very much.
