That's not a bad idea
Anderson is scheduled to make $23mil over the next 3 years and Mourning is $18mil for 3 years. NJ will need to send over a scrub to make salaries match.
Other than that, I see only a win win situation for the knicks
With the way Ariza playing, Anderson is never going to play again for the knicks. He will just be sitting on the bench collecting a HUGE paycheck. At least with Mourning, we can take the risk. From last night's game, we need a center. DaSilva was right when he said Nazr is good at what he does......he's a backup center and that's it. With Mourning, Baker and Nazr, Mourning will not have to play extensive minutes. With his playoff experience, he will be a good force on the court and in the locker room.
And if he doesn't work out, at least it's better not wasting the money on anderson and also the knicks will be able to get the injury exception if Mourning can no longer play. It's a smart move money wise for the knicks.
No one is going to trade for anderson straight up. His contract won't allow it. We need to take a chance, that's the only way he can get traded!
