    Default Report: D'antoni wanted to trade Melo for Deron Williams

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Excerpt:

    D’Antoni, the source said, had been advocating that the Knicks attempt to trade Anthony to the New Jersey Nets for guard Deron Williams, a deal D’Antoni believed would be beneficial for both franchises. But Dolan categorically declined that request, and the “conflicting visions” between the owner and head coach about Anthony meant there was no way forward.

    D’Antoni had hoped the Knicks’ inspired and winning play with Lin as the centerpiece — while Anthony and Stoudemire were injured — would convince Dolan the Knicks could win without Anthony.
    Those differences were major — D’Antoni wanted to trade Carmelo Anthony to the Nets for Deron Williams. So reports David Aldridge of TNT and NBA.com.

    ...and what would all the Lin bandwagon fans have thought of that? I say it's a bs story with no truth to it.

    Makes sense.

    Which is why Dolan wouldn't have entertained it.

    Who knows. The crux of this entire situation is obvious.

    There is

    D'antoni + The Team (+ those fans who support D'antoni)

    vs


    Dolan + Melo (+ those fans who support these two, or support them by virtue of blind hatred against D'antoni)

    There's also the reasonable middle ground, who respect D'Antoni as a good coach but not a fit for our roster or the fans in NY. New York Knicks basketball reputation is built on hard-nosed, hustle, energy and most of all defense. MDA did not bring those things to the team at least not in enough quality/quantity to appease the fanbase.

    Dolan is a jackass, Melo sucks this year and trading him for Deron would be freakin awesome... But MDA needed to go.

    wow, this would have been a good trade but I think we can be better with all of our guys rather than Williams and then a log jam of point guards.

    If the Dwight opt in is true this deal would of just saved the Nets from the crapstorm they are about to enter with Deron having no reason to stay. Never trade with the enemy especially after they're the reason the Knicks had to give up so much by interfering in the Melo trade. I hope they get hurt now as karma (and because honestly that stadium is going to destroy brooklyn's traffic forever)

    Also I am surprised no one talks about the fact that this trade rings of desperation, you just got out of linsanity and barons healthy but you want to trade for a third PG?

    Are we surprised? D'Antoni's wet dream is to have a roster of 15 point guards who can shoot the 3. Doesn't shock me at all he wanted this trade.
