How to Get Dwight and Cap to finish this season and to spend in July!!!
Ok, I don't believe that this Dwight to The Knicks deal is going to really happen, yet lets be real here, it really comes down to us thinking it's too good to be true, right?
But as much as I don't (or refuse to let myself belief) I have to at least examine how this coud/would work and it would work out almost perfect!
Of course a deal could not be stuck until March when Chandler would be availabe, so let's fast forward to there
We send Tyshon Chandler, Bibby and Amare to Orlando for Dwight and Nelson
We then send Nelson to Atl. for Hinrich who has not played a game yet this season and has an expiring deal who could easily just be cut or replaces Bibby
Orlando now loaded with 3 PF's sends Ryan Anderson to Min. for JJ Berea who is the odd man out with Rubio coming along so fast, Anderson fits in with Minny's style and he has an expiring deal if somehow he does not
Nelson is a good fit for what Atl. has on their roster
not a bad roster to end up with after trading your franchise player!!
For The Knicks, we will have the ability to get those incoming players from China at that point....Kmart is the first player that comes to mind, plus the minny MLE, maybe JR Smith?
Davis/Douglas/ Hinrich (a favorite of mine)
And this summer The Knicks could have up to 18 million in cap!
So you're thinking, pull all this stuff, and then chase D-Will in the summertime?
I mean, I like Amar'e (no homo). I respect the hell out of him for coming to NY (yeah, I know we offered him the max, but still) when nobody else did, unlike that bitch LeBron who thought he'd just bandwagon his way to a ring.
But if you can dump Chandler and Amar'e for Dwight Howard...you'd be an idiot not to do it.
would be the best roster in the NBA bar none.
Orlando would want Chandler, Amare, Shumpert, maybe Fields....and they will want to dump Turkoglu's contract on us

To be honest, I'd like to see us work with what we *have* at this point.
I also would not want to commit to trading either Melo or Amare until we are more certain in how able they can be enmeshed together in a cohesive system.
With a good coach and a PG who can perform the obvious necessary duties of distribution and running an offense as floor general, I see zero reason why they can't.
I actually have argued, right when Melo came, they should be a *LETHAL* pair if coached properly and in the right offensive system.
Plus, we have a in his prime, true defensive center, champion, and one who also can move and generate points -- especially in the type of offense that will best unleash Amare and Melo together.
If we are able to create a fluid team that maximizes Amare and Melo playing together, alongside Chandler -- and I believe the system that best does this is one that MDA is as good as anyone with...up tempo, free flowing, quick decisions, and where spacing is king....giving away 2 of those three, even for Howard, would be a mistake.
Howard's championship mettle (or lack thereof), and his obvious weakness of FT%, not to mention clear reservations about being a NY'er, make me question him, too.
Let's keep fighting, get a PG (be it Baron this season, or a MLE type in the off-season), use our 2.5M exception on some added depth this year, and become champions under the direction and coaching of MDA. Or fire him and replace him ASAP if we aren't immediately contending on a level equal to at least the Ewing Knicks era.

No, they would try to unload a bad contract on use, as usual.Especially with Walsh gone we'd get rapped, i don't need Dolan doing anymore deals.
