Default Re: If the knicks were to blow up the roster what would your team be interested in?

I'd bring Jerome James, Eddy Curry, and Zack Randolph onto my team.

Not to play - I would use them for hot dog eating contests during halftime. Marketing, baby....

David Lee and Crawford.

If the Knicks "blew up" their team, would they be trading guys or buying them out? If they were trading dudes on the cheap, I'd move Kwame (expirer) for Lee and Crawford plus whatever it took to make it work under the cap (Randolph Morris?)

Lee's a great energy and hustle guy. Shoots a good %. Reminds of Horace Grant. He'd start at the 4. Crawford I'd have coming off the bench to score with the 2nd unit. I know he's considered a chucker.. and he kind of is.. but if he was given a sixth man role to come out and throw up shots, I think he'd be pretty effective, kinda like Barbosa. He's a heck of a scorer.

you'd have to pick up james in that deal and throw in something good, or a draft pick.

NUM PLAYER POS HT WT DOB FROM YRS 32 Renaldo Balkman F 6-8 208 07/14/1984 South Carolina 1 21 Wilson Chandler F 6-8 220 05/10/1987 DePaul R 20 Jared Jeffries F 6-11 240 11/25/1981 Indiana 5 42 David Lee F 6-9 240 04/29/1983 Florida 2 5 Randolph Morris C 6-11 260 01/02/1986 Kentucky 1 50 Zach Randolph F 6-9 260 07/16/1981 Michigan State 6
these are all the players I would be interested in. Not sure about contract # or lengths. Most of the other players I wasnt interested in because of contract (crawford, curry, james, marbury, q, rose, jones), deficiency in imp aspect of game (Curry, mardy collins, robinson), or I dont like their style of play (marbury (love his shoes though), robinson)

Not too sure about jeffries, I thought he looked great playing that 2-5 substitute role for different looks on the wiz(reminded me of Timmy Thomas when he was 6th man extraordinare on those bad ass Bucks teams)
Id give randolph morris a look.

No they wouldn't. Kwame's contract is EXACTLY what the Knicks need right now. They should be willing to trade anyone with a contract that does not end this year for anyone that has a contract that does end this year. As long as the salaries work out, it is a no brainer. Anyone that says they should be only trade if they get equal value is crazy. Shorter contracts with equal salaries is better than equal value for the Knicks right now.

If the Celtics had David Lee and Renaldo Balkman, their chances to win a championship would soar.

we're talking about david lee and crawford, probably the easiest players to trade on this team.
no way i give up david lee for an expirer unless it's a huge contract.

Exactly. Kwame's contract would be perfect.

If I were the Knicks, I would keep Lee and Curry. The rest of the squad should be put in a garage sale and dumped for shorter contracts. Since salaries need to match, then shorter contracts make almost any trade worth it. I would try to use Crawford and Randolph (as well as Curry if necessary) as the main players in trades, while forcing the other contracts into the trades. As long as the contracts come back shorter, it is worth it.

I would take David Lee.

If my team (Raptors) wasn't so stacked at the point I might take a chance on Nate and see if he could develop into a energy/defense Point off the bench. If he matured a a lot, and improved his ability to read the floor, he could be a very effective player in short bursts.
