    Well their owner just said they want a star player and currently playing bad or Not right now Amare is a star player and more famous than anyone on their whole team. Also the 76er's want to run and play in transition and Brand is holding them back from doing that. So Amare would be a good fit for them in that regard.

    the flip for the knicks would be that the trade would likely include brand who comes off either this year (ETO option) or next year (much more likely) for 17 million that could be used to improve the overall roster. Also involved would obviously be some of the 76er's depth and picks.

    I'd do the deal in a 3-team trade that gets us Brandon Jennings, Evan Turner and an expiring contract.

    Our backcourt would be rebuild for the next 10 years with excellent chemistry. Jennings is a scorer/leader and Turner one of the best all-rounders in basketball.

    I don't know what kind of credibility this guy below has, but If we traded Amare it would only be for Evan Turner and future draft picks I would break something. D'Antoni probably wouldn't even play the guy and we'd end up giving him away for nothing like Corey Brewer and Anthony Randolph. smh

    What's funny is if we trade Amare to the Sixers they would instantly be better than us look at their roster with Stat:

    Holiday
    Meeks
    Iggy
    Amare
    Hawes
    Sixth man: Williams

    Thats a contending team because Doug Collins plays team defense iggy and Holiday can easily run the PNR and Hawes is the stretch C that Amare had in Pho. like Frye

    NO Way we trade AMARE they are only trading Turner and Brand with picks

    I'd say it's like 5-1 in favor of us making a major move soon, involving one or both of Amare and Melo, and some combo of Fields/Douglas/Shumpert.

    Personally, I don't want to do it though if it involves too much of a roster overhaul, or brings in players with too many ?s surrounding their fit.

    We've been through enough of that.

    Which is why I'm really on in favor of going after a more simple swap of Melo for DWill, which makes a tremendous amount of sense. And is one where if it was getting consummated, we could shoot for more in return, too, since Deron is going to likely bolt Jersey at the end of the season.

    Morrow, even Brooks, should be on the table in any deal involving Melo + _____ for DWill + _______.

    I'd prefer that scenario over anything else out there, including Howard situations.

    I'm not against a trade that improves our team....yet trading Stat because of a slow start is ignorant

    Stat was an All NBA 2nd team player and now Jrue Holliday and Andre Igudola is asking too much for him?

    Iggy is too valuable to Philly for what he does for that team on the defensive side of the ball which is why they would not trade him for anyone not named Lebron, but it is not due to him being better than Stat

    If Dwight is traded to another team, New Jersey will gladly take Amare for D Will straight up!

    So on the subject of trading him to Philly....I would ask for Elton Brand and Jrue Holliday just to get the conversations going
    Mike Antoni has Melo looking like Jello.

    I want Antoni and Walsh off the team. Then the Knicks will start winning.

    Hell no to Evan Turner.

    True story: when he was a freshman at Ohio State he was practicing free throws. Someone threw him a pass in a way he didn't like, he threw a temper tantrum and stormed out of the gym.

    He had similar issues as a rookie. He is poison.

    yeah that sounds about right for the deals teams would offer right now. A potential headcase, a wash up maxed player, and probably low/mid 20 picks. The worse part is this might lead to Amare playing worse just because of the added stress.

    Unless it's for Howard, I don't want STAT traded, and I think bailing on him after last season's effort is WAY too soon, and devoid of loyalty. But that's just my approach.

    I want him under the tutelage and game plan of another coach, that's not appeased by fairy-like, perimeter basketball, as his game is coming together now, but he's stranded on his own as a scorer, with little game plan helping his cause.

    If we're to trade one of our high salary players, get rid of Melo. Get back as much as we can - not that it's possible in a desperation trade - because out of our Big 3, only one of them whines on the floor, and is satisfied with their misplacement in the team's approach.

    Things have been awry since Me-lo arrived, and if someone demands to come in to my house and starts ruining the vibe, I kick them the **** out.
