Default Steve Francis For Kenyon Martin

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is Martin For Francis Denver's Only Option?
20th July, 2006 - 12:47 am
Newsday - One NBA executive told Greg Logan of Newsday that the Nuggets are "desperate" to unload Kenyon Martin and almost certainly could be forced to take Steve Francis, who has three years worth $48.7 million left on his contract. The nearly $50 million is a relative bargain, as Martin has five years left for $70.9 million.

Martin is coming off microfracture knee surgery and was suspended by the Nuggets during the playoffs for behavioral problems. Denver asked for Channing Frye in the past and likely would again, but there is zero chance of the Knicks dealing Frye in a Martin trade.

every move we keep making makes me closer and closer to completely not caring about the knicks, this one may put me over the edge, while we should get rid of stevie "let me ruin your" franchise, we dont need a guy who has a LONGER contract than he does.

I think that Kenyon is a wonderful player to get if NY can get him healthy or with a future draft pick if he is injured.

Channing Frye, I heard gained an additional 15 pounds of muscle over the summer. Hopefully this will make him a better rebounder. -Frye is good, and will continue to get better. However, Martin is a wonderful defender as well. Martin is versital as well. I'm not sure we can say Frye will be better than Martin yet, but we'll see.

i can see isaiah pulling off a deal francis for kenyon...its an isaiah thing to do...trade a bad contract for an even worse one...there are absolutly no takers for martin in hte league but i think if anyone takes him it will be the knicks...they like taking big risks...and when they do get martin they will be in even worse shape than before

Isiah Thomas won't trade Francis for a power forward, he believes that Frye is the starting power forward for the next ten years. If anything, Isiah will trade Francis for an expiring contract, or some young players, and draft picks.

I might be the only outsider to say this but I like this deal for the Knicks. Mark my words, Isiah has this team on the right path. And for some odd reason I think James will be valuable this year.

The Knicks front office should go into hibernation for five years waiting for every single contract to expire while replacing with minimum contract scrubs.

It would surely be the best way to handle it.

I'm sure that it would be a good idea for the twolves too. Except they could freeze Garnett and thaw him out in 5 years

I'm trying to be serious but little ignorant Knick fans come in and start dissing.

If you open your eyes you would realize my suggestion is a good one.
