    Default Trade our pick, Fields, and Douglas, for Gortat and the suns 13th pick.

    I want gortat, I would rather him than any big in the draft.

    and if we package fields, douglas and our 17th pick.

    I think we can get the suns 13th pick and gortat in return.

    The suns would have fields and douglas, two young guards to help with the suns lack of depth, and the 17th pick

    while we would have a solid rebounding shot blocking center, and the 13th pick.


    Our line up could potentially look some what like this

    Billups
    Klay thompson
    Melo
    Amare
    Gortat

    Not bad. I think this is the type of creative moves we need to make in order to get dramatically better.

    I'm all in. Gortat is a good C when given minutes, he can shoot pretty well too outside of his good rebounding and shot blocking.

    One can only hope our FO is thinking along these lines. That's a nice move.

    Phoenix wouldn't let go of Gortat that easily.

    Why in da **** would PHO do that? Marcin was straight up beast last yr...smh @ these weaksauce trades....And he's young and primed for more.

    N you want to try to flip a weaker pick, a middling ass dime dozen tweener + a guy who got his emperors clothes removed while y'all were still giggling like school girls livin a fantasy about us having a starting 2guard...smmfh....

    Vince Carter, biggest washed up perennial loser and quitter in NBA today...now dis?

    Real moves peoples, real moves. Fanboyin for a DALLASS team n trying to get pleasure from a MIA dynasty not winning mustv clouded some good ass peoples judgements....

    Real talk. Fields a huge question mark w low value. Douglas too. Weaker pick. And you want one of the best young, all round startin 5s in game who just be grtting better n better n has value climbing?

    Maybe if we throw out getting that 13th...Maybe.

    all the people throwing out trade ideas like this....im presuming are basically either giving up or not for the whole getting CP3 scheme. and i can understand that. i mean we dont know how the cap is gonna affect us and we might not even be able to afford cp3. but ask yourself, even if there is a slight slight possibility of us getting a cp3, do we roll the dice and try for it or are we gonna go the whole putting solid players around our 2 stars route.

    also, as mentioned in some other threads by some posters, we can bash the heat for not winning with just 3 stars and dallas having a more complete TEAM but its not like the heat missed the playoffs....they were 2 games away from winning the chip.

    Phx is making Gortat their future. This trade could get us Robin Lobez and the 13th, not Gortat.

    If you can win now, why sacrifice that to maintain future flexibility for something that probably won't even happen?

    The Knicks have two top-shelf stars. If they see opportunities to build a good, solid contender around that at the expense of maybe possibly getting CP3 in another year, they have to do it.

    The only way I could justify NOT trying to win NOW is if we are pretty much certain that we can get CP3 here. But we don't know that at all. It was okay to play those games before 2010 because we were rebuilding. But now, it's time to play for the present.

    thats cool i hear what you're saying but is Gortat really gonna make the difference in when we battle heat and the bulls for the next few years? yea dallas won because they had a more complete team but their TEAM consisted of jkidd , shawn marrion, chandler, terry (who could start on 80% of teams). so its not like it was 1 or 2 solid players around dirk and its not like the solid players were mediocore....they were superstars at one point, yea their physical play deteriorated but their mental knowledge of the game didnt go anywhere.....jkidd defended so well not because he was a top athlete but because of his mental understanding and toughness, same with marrion, same with terry stepping up and making clutch shots.
    my point is that we can try to build a team around melo and stat and try to complement them with the perfect pieces but those pieces cant be so so players, THEY HAVE TO HAVE SOMETHING ABOUT THEM THATS GREAT. it could be physical athleticism, mental toughness or a decade of experience in playoff tested battles. who stands out for me (out of whats available) is GHill, TMac, Jeff Foster

    I said that Phoenix wouldn't give up Gortat that easily.
    In fact, I posted that right before your post.

    I got no swag? You got no reading comprehension.

    Now, go away like you promised.
