    Trade Icon Here's A Swing In The Dark!

    Man.

    It's ****ing hard to come up with a decent trade on the ol' ESPN trade machine.

    I had a (frustrating) go at it, and this was about as good a trade, for us, that I could concoct.


    New York Knicks
    Payroll = $66,576,486

    Cap Room = -$8,532,486




    Kevin Love$3.6M 24.4
    PF 2 Years

    Jonny Flynn$3.2M 7.1
    PG 3 Years

    N. Pekovic$4.3M 11.3
    C 3 Years

    Acquiring 3 Players
    $11.1M


    Hollinger's Analysis: -4 Wins
    With this trade you have decreased this team's projected wins by 4. Who gives a **** about Hollinger's 'D'Antoni-esque' +/- BS?



    Los Angeles Lakers
    Payroll = $90,381,756


    Cap Room = -$32,337,756

    C. Billups$13.2M 18.8
    PG 2 Years

    + NY's 17th pick.



    M. Beasley$5.0M 15.5
    PF 2 Years
    Acquiring 2 Players
    $18.1M


    Hollinger's Analysis: -7 Wins
    With this trade you have decreased this team's projected wins by 7.


    Minnesota Timberwolves
    Payroll
    $54,275,606
    Cap Room
    $3,768,394
    PlayerSalary PER

    Pau Gasol$17.8M 23.3
    PF 4 Years

    T. Douglas$1.1M 15.2


    G 3 Years
    Acquiring 2 Players
    $18.9M
    Hollinger's Analysis: +3 Wins
    With this trade you have increased this team's projected wins by 3.



    This was the article/rumour that kindled my trade idea.



    Minnesota is very interested in Gasol

    ESPN famous reporter Chad Ford said on Thursday local time, Minnesota will likely trade their No. 2 draft picks, and their objects of interest, including Lakers star Pau Gasol.

    Ford said: “They have not started talking about trading with other teams, so that people feel they want to keep this pick, but I feel that if the right opportunity, they will do the deal, who’s the Lakers – Paul Gasol very interested, willing to pay if the Wizards JaVale McGee, they may pursue, they want to have a player, which the same level as partner Rubio in height and athleticism .

    Knicks Roster

    Flynn
    Fields
    Melo
    STAT
    Love

    Rautins
    Walker
    Tuffiaf
    AC
    Jerome Jordan
    Shawne Williams
    Pekovic
    Balkman

    And whoever we can add to the team.

    Trade Cons:

    -Leaves a big hole at the point guard spot for us, with Flynn as our only PG.

    -Lakers PG woes are centred around aquiring youth as according to Magic Johnson. They're interested in Felton though, which could leave them somehow able to trade Chauncey back to Denver who already have Lawson. That is the back breaker right there.

    -Would Minnesota consider Love for Pao a good call with their difference in age and cost? I don't think so. Kahn would do anything for Ricky though, by the looks of things.

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

    Doctor Love, Flynn and an enormous Euro Spud to NY.

    You do better! - Does not include DontForgetDerekHarper, whose trade for Gortat was a good one.

    I think they only want Gasol in order to play alongside Love. Losing Love for Gasol makes no sense and does not bring them closer to a title.

    It is a swing in the dark!

    Surely the 'rape pendulum' between us and Minny has to be leaning further our way.
