The Knicks will acquire Tyson Chandler from Dallas via a sign-and-trade.
The Mavericks will acquire a sizable trade exception in the process. The first year of Chandler's deal with the Knicks will be more than $12 million.
Dallas intends to be players in the 2012 free agency market and this acquisition will give them an extra asset.
The Mavericks will also receive a low-salaried player from the Knicks.
Please don't be Landry Fields!
Hopefully it'll be Walker, Rautins or Brown.

Huh? Hopefully I'm wrong again... but I don't think we keep out MLE. We still hafta amnesty billups, they aren't getting billups and low salary player in swap, they are getting trade exception and low salary player. Which means unless we are stupid it's not rautins, we dump the higher salaried balkman rather than the makes by nba standards nothing rautins.
Hopefully it's Balkman, we have no use for him haha
Ok this is being said to be a rumor the Turiaf trade allows the Knicks to sign him outright without any help from the mavs. Also we may have some extra money left over from the Turiaf deal in the TPE. I'm not sure but I think 3 million. So in theory this extra money could be used to round out the roster by signing S. Williams to a multi year deal and maybe gaining another player as well as the 2.5 MLE.
Dont understand how the mavs get the tpe, and if we are still amnestying billups... and hell yeah it better be kiyaman's favorite tazmanian who gets shipped to the mavs and not our rooks
I still don't get why Dallas doesn't want Billups? They get a solid replacement for JJ Barea and he is an expiring contract. I really want us to save our Amnesty and not waste it on an expiring contract. But oh well at least with this trade we can still keep the MLE.
not sure who is this player would be. i dont think dallas has a need for balkman. we might have a need....considering we are going more defensive now.. but i think jeffereies will be the fist big off the bench...
i think its gonna be rautins... which hasnt showed anything.. hopefully billy walker can show some improvement.. that would help out the 2 spot a great deal.....
We only have the half-MLE available. We can only spend $2.5 mil on another player, not $5mil.
Rautins is traded to Dallas as a part of the deal according to Alan Hahn.

Why are we doing a sign Nd trade with mavs. Where was the benefit to the knicks un that trade? Please tell me it wasnt si the knicks could pay tyson more...
Here we are talking about signing Mike Bibby -- I just looked at this guys stats from last yr in Miami. You know in 20 playoff games (a total of 414 mins logged) he only went to the FT line 4 times. Is that nuts or what? 4 TIMES! Wow. Oh yeah, even though he was good from 3 during the regular season for the Heat (44% I believe) he only shot 20-something % from the field (total AND from 3) in the playoffs. This guy's a far cry from the Mike Bibby of old man. I mean Miami needs a PG and they were content to let this guy go. I tell ya right now, Rautins could've given us more than that. Bibby (at this stage of his career) & Rautins are the same type of players really (not true PGs, more spot up shooters that can bring the ball up), only Rautins is bigger, younger and would've been cheaper. We actually drafted Rautins ahead of Landry, man. Too bad he never got a shot here.

Also, did I hear right - did we trade Turiaf for a trade exception? How much is that for - his entire salary? That could come in handy, no?
