Default DX Rumor, Knicks and Philly trade

Knicks trade Zach Randolph and the 6th pick to Philly for Reggie Evans and the #16 pick

Knicks are trying to clear cap space but no way in hell i'll do this. drop from 6th to 16? Evans also isn't half the player Randolph is. I understand we need to clear cap but not this way

Is it even possible with Zachs contract and Evans contract? Evans makes far less than Zach.

But if I were the Knicks, I would unload Zach to anyone willing to take him

its possible because of the sixers cap space. i dont want it to happen unless the sixers were guarenteed a player like mayo,which now seems unlikely. i read this on draftexpress.com though

"One trade that is making the rounds would involve the Knicks sending Zach Randolph and the rights to the #6 pick to Philadelphia for a smaller contract, such as Reggie Evans, and the rights to the #16 pick—after July 1st (when Philadelphia’s cap space kicks in). New York would move into position to have significant cap space in the summer of 2010 (possibly to make a run at LeBron James) by unloading the 17.3 million dollars owed to Randolph in 2010/11, and would still be able to keep David Lee around.

Philadelphia would fill a big void at power forward with a 20 point per game scorer in Zach Randolph, and possibly pick up one of Jerryd Bayless, O.J. Mayo or Eric Gordon in the process, while only sacrificing the 8-9 million dollars they are expected to have in cap space, which likely wouldn’t get them very far anyway."

if the sixers are thinking about taking eric gordon,brook lopez,or anthony randolph with that pick,i hope they back off. i dont want randolph either

Eric Gordon would be a great pick up. Move Iggy to the 3 and you got yourself a contender in the East.

Miller
Gordon
Iggy
Randolph
Dalembert

Bench: Green, Williams, Young, and Smith

Looks pretty good.

That lineup is indeed quite sick...especially in the east. IMO, the only thing stopping them from doing well would be chemistry problems.

I would have thought only a really desperate team would trade for Zach Randolph or Eddy Curry. The Sixers were a decent team last year, they don't need to take a chance on a guy like Randolph. They just need to hope that Brand or Marion opt out of their contracts and sign one of those guys. I think it would be a decent deal for the Knicks, since getting rid of Randolph should be priority #1 for Donnie Walsh. Plus they can probably pick up someone decent at 16.

iggy would play the 2. thaddeus young would play the 3 and start. eric gordon at the 2 wouldn't be able to give us anything more than willie green did last year (12ppg in 26mpg)

sixers might have a shot at getting arthur at 16. if they want to move up to get him it wouldnt have to be to the #6 pick

Evans for Randolph straight up would be great, but Philly isn't that stupid. Giving up that 6th pick is risky, though we'd still get the 16th....how about Jeffries & Randolph for Evans, and the 16th? that probably wouldn't work, either....

i honestly believe that the players that are available at #16 aren't too far behind the players that will be drafted from #5 on (assuming rose,beasley,mayo,bayless are the top 4). after the top 4,the draft pretty much evens out in talent and teams will go more for need. i don't think the sixers will do too much better at 6 than they would at 16
