That's assuming Fields swapped for Gallo got the deal done.
Omg are we still dwelling on the past? STFU!!!!!!!!
I for one have changed my mind...Melo is better then i thought...we gave up a lot but you'd have a hard time getting Melo for say straight up Gallo....right
I wanted to keep Fields the most. You never knew what you were gonna get with Gallo. A lot of games he didn't seem to call for the ball and didn't get it, a lot of games he'd shoot a bunch of threes whether they were going in or not, and there was some games where he took it to the basket and couldn't be stopped.
Fields showed a lot of IQ and turned out to be a GREAT pick. He could turn into one of those special late picks like Monta.
cant wait for the draft tomarrow I know were gona get 2 players , just hoping we get the right players.
Hindsight is 20/20 but I'm gonna go against the grain and say this.
If the new cap is $70-$75 Million and we have $40 million basically invested in 2 players the Knicks have to be smart about this to not spend more than $10 million on any single player..... Honestly paying $7 to a good player should be the max.....
Unless some sort of exemptions or salary grandfather clause is added.
The problem with not giving up Gallo is that I believe I read somewhere that Carmelo was pretty close to ending up as a Net...if Carmelo was over in Jersey, we'd be PISSED even if we got Deron Williams as a consolation prize. D-Will is a good player but he's not dynamic like Melo is.
