    Which of the 10 teams could give us a double-double low post scorer?

    Aquiring Melo & Tyson the Knicks needed Stat to become a low-post scorer, that was not goin to happen under clueless Dantoni, or in a compressed 66 game season with few practices, and no low post coach on our staff.
    Especially when Stat was getting more comfortable at not playing this season do to an undecisive lock-out lasting to the month of December.

    Throughout the 2011-12 season none of our coaches worked on low-post scoring....Lin-Sanity had to show our coaches how dangerous our offense could be with low postup scoring.

    Not a one.
    If Gilbert 'I bring guns to work' Arenas could get traded, Amar'e can get too.

    Anyway, the most likely scenario is one you didn't even mention: Washington.

    Amar'e for Nene straight up.

    Both on multi-year contracts, they need a run-and-gun partner for Wall who's athletic enough. They don't care about defense anyway. Amar'e fits the bill.

    We get a physical forward/center in Nene with a good low post game, something that we desperately need. Melo and Nene know each other from Denver and have played very well alongside each other.

    Good trade for both parties.

    The time to trade him would have been last off-season. No GM in his right mind looking to improve his team is going to want him with the kind of season he's had.

    Now you might get someone to bite if it's a similar deal like the Rashard Lewis/Arenas deal last year but that was a deal to move two boat anchors and not to improve your club.

    Default Amaare'

    I agree with Crazy8s and the other posters who believe that Amare' is untradeable. I believe that his next three years of uninsured contract salary is actually over $68M. No team will take that on without dumping close to an equivalent contract amount. We overpaid Amare' in hopes that he would assist in luring LeBron. I believe that Miami was always Le Bron's intended destination. He played us all. If he had indicated his intention to sign with Miami, perhaps we would not have signed Amare'.

    It is too bad that the new CBA does not permit the moving of players with a sharing of cap responsibilities. For example, trade Amare' but keep responsibility for half of his ongoing salary. The team getting him would be responsible for the other half. We would be burdened with half the salary cap liability and the new team the other half.

    Well we ****ed up twice in 12 months. First we offered him that horrible contract and then we used the amnesty on Billup's expiring contract.

    Amare is not a R. Lewis or Arenas bad. He just doesn't fit the knicks system and tyson chandler makes it hard for hin to operate offensively.

    He was never good on defense but there are more than a few teams that would take him as is and build around that. To many posters are tailspinning in despair to look at this dispassionately, to see the what the real debate should be. It's not if the Knicks can trade Amare is if they will trade Amare.

    Honestly id

    1st- trade Stat for a draft pick to move up higher in this years draft

    2nd -sign Deron Williams through Free Agency (he's leaving anyway)

    3rd- Resign Lin ( have Lin come off the bench, that way we have a very strong 1st and 2nd unit)

    4th- give JR the MLE, Resign Novak for 1 mill and jefferies for 1 mill

    5th - use whatever money is left over to build a stronger bench, maybe try and go after Camby depending on the cap situation.

    Who's going to pay $68M and only forego a draft pick? That would be a dream scenerio for the Knicks. We'd open up a ton of cap space, get a promising young player on a rookie salary and have money to spend on retaining JR, Novak... Its good but a little bit too good.

    Have to disagree with you there. You're right about the Knicks system and Stat might be better off on a team that can better use his PnR skills and that's why they will try to trade him, other reasons being his injury issues and that bonehead stunt putting his hand through a glass window.

    Unfortunately the Knicks won't find any takers, too many years left on his contract, he makes too much money, he doesn't play defense and he's got injury issues. The list of reasons why you don't want him on your team is why we won't be able to trade him.

    good point, lol i mean it doesn't have to be a lottery pick type pick i don't believe we own a first round pick just something to at least get us in the 1st round at least. maybe we could send amare to houston for our pick back, im sure they'll be thrilled about stat lol (Lowry and stat) history in the making

    Even if Houston is thrilled, they can't do it unless the salaries match up.

    I doubt Houston wants him, too many bad memories of Yao and T-Mac and they would never take the risk of an uninsured contract.

    ahhh, i forgot about that loll. oh well in reality we are probably stuck with stoudemire another what 3 years, these trade Amare threads that are beginning to erupt are kind of pointless. I don't think even the bobcats would be dumb enough to trade for stat.

    Before the glass punching incident... sure, maybe. After? Who'd want to risk taking on a player who, for the second time, ruined the playoffs for his team.

    Why isn't this clown arrested yet for destroying private property?
