    I like this.

    The trade that would only work would be

    Nash
    Pietrus
    Lopez

    for

    Billups
    Turiaf
    Fields
    Shumpert

    Knicks would look like

    Nash/Douglas
    Pietrus/Rautins
    Anthony/Walker
    Stoudimire/Balkman
    Lopez/Jordan

    We can upgrade our bench with the MLE, but that starting 5 is almost to perfection. Nash still plays an elite level and would be better with two superstars in Anthony and Stoudimire.

    Along with the fact we get a shot blocker/energy guy (tho rebounding isn't strong) in Lopez and an elite perimeter defender in Pietrus who can hit the 3.

    If we make this move, expect the Knicks to be better than Chicago and on the same playing field of the Heat, and embarassing the Celtics

    Suns would have a nice little future with

    Brooks (fast scoring combo guard)
    Shumpert (defensive passing guard who compliments Brooks perfectly)
    Fields (the perfect glue guy for Phoneix, can play his natural position)
    Morris (Rasheed Wallace type)
    Gortat (The defensive enforcer)

    Not a bad look for the Suns.

    I would go as far to say I would do that trade only if it was: Shumpert, Billups, Balkman & Turiaf for Lopez-Nash-Pietrus.

    We then sign a center (Kwame Brown, Pryzbilla, Foster, Oden, Thomas, Gray) and add a piece like Redd or Wells.

    12-man roster something like:

    Nash (Douglas)
    Pietrus (Fields)
    Carmelo
    Amar'e
    Brown (Lopez)

    Shawne Williams, Rautins, Redd/Wells, Harrellson/Jordan

    A 2nd unit of Douglas, Fields, Lopez Shawne looks pretty decent.

    Shumpert Balkman and Billups for Nash and Lopez
    MLE Battier
    sign Ben Hansbrough
    Toughen up Lopez

    Nash/Douglas/Hansbrough
    Battier/Fields
    Melo/Williams
    STAT/Jeffries
    Lopez/Turiaf/Harrelson or J.Jordan

    Not bad.
