    Default Dantoni interested in Orlando...Amare tradable?

    First off I have always supported Stat, still have faith he and Melo will co exist, yet he does represent something all too familar from The Isiah era...a player with large contract but small trade value! And I am always for ridding those


    Now reports/rumors suggest that Dantoni has expressed interest in Orlando job if it/when it becomes available

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    Now I understand the draw, Ryan Anderson is a more complete Steve Novak, you have Jason Richardson and Nelson in the backcourt and of course Dwight Howard!

    Players on the bench that have literally only been productive under Dantoni's system (Chris Duhon and Q Rich).


    In order to take the job he is going to need security that Dwight is going to stay....not gonna happen....but the promise of being able to deliver two Dantoni favorites would no doubt entice!

    Those 2 favorites would be Stat and Chandler. This would for sure get Mike D to take the job!

    And you know what?...... that team would be pretty darn good!


    Nelson
    Ja. Richardson
    Anderson
    Stat
    Chandler

    bench

    JJ Reddick
    Glenn Davis
    Q Rich
    Duhon

    maybe they go after Jefferies and this team is really good!

    This is better than our lineup last year that was as high as 5th in the East

    Felton
    Feilds
    Gallo
    Wilson
    Stat



    Here is the other benefit....Otis Smith will take this risk! He took an even bigger gamble on Gilbert Arenas who was an even bigger medical risk and of course had the off the court baggage

    Stat and Chandler represent the best offer to date that they have ever gotten (assuming what The Lakers said about not ever offering Bynum and Gasol for him is true.)

    Howard isn't an MDA type of player. I guess the rational is to get something for Howard in return and take it from there. Amare would make sense in that scenario.

    3 Way Deal

    Magic- Amar'e Stoudemire and Jeremy Lin
    Knicks- Deron Williams and Gerald Wallace
    Nets- Dwight Howard and Jameer Nelson

    Magic- Lin-Redick-Richardson-Anderson-Stoudemire
    Knicks- Williams-Shumpert-Anthony-Wallace-Chandler
    Nets- Nelson-Brooks-????-????-Howard

    I dont it though it does make all the teams better

    I could see Nash and D'Antoni re-uniting in Orlando. Perfect roster for his system. Run the pick and roll with Nash and Howard, with Anderson, Richardson, Reddick, Turkoglu, etc spreading the floor.

    They would be contenders and could possibly win it all, which could be enough to entice Howard to stay.

    You think? I would have thought that Howard might lose a step or two because of his back and also he is lacking in range.

    If D'Antoni goes to Orlando and gets the Magic to take Stat that would be the best thing he ever did for the Knicks. Please let it be true.

    Or maybe Nash would go to Miami and Stat would follow him. Wow!

    The one setting the pick and rolling to the basket does not necessarily need range if the ball handler drawing the defender has range, good passing skills and the ability to penetrate. Nash and Howard would be devastating in the pick-and-roll, particularly with the floor spread out with surrounding shooters.

    Good point about Howard's back. I am not aware of the severity. I would think he could come back at full strength but I am not sure.

    Not necessarily, but my impression always was that he likes bigs who can at least spot up. From what I can remember he wasn't happy about having the "Big Shaqtus" on his team.

    Only if he is going to take on board Melo as well, which I doubt

    Well if Howard's injury is NOT a concern, he would be a good option in NY but I don't see him wanting the Knicks... So here is an optimal trade that works and opens up cap space for us to dabble in free agency and sign our players...

    Dwight Howard to Lakers
    Tyson Chandler & Amar'e Stoudemire to Orlando

    Knicks get Andrew Bynum, and Hedo Turk... Bynum last year of his deal, and Turk has one year with player option... Of course would have Lakers sign and trade Bynum to us... Turk could be an asset or trade bait to a team like Bucks or Kings with cap room...
    As much as I like Chandler our DPOY he is a bargaining chip to make this deal go through...

    Knicks rotation would be that much better:

    Jeremy Lin Re-Sign
    Iman Shumpert
    Carmelo Anthony
    Free Agent/Draft Pick (yes we only have 2nd rd as 1st rd belongs to Houston)
    Andrew Bynum

    If by chance JR Smith accepts his player option then our bench rotation could be this:

    Mike Bibby Re-Sign (Mike Woodson player)
    JR Smith
    Landry Fields
    Jared Jeffries
    Jerome Jordan

    only if he signs an offer sheet first I think is the rule

    also its not about wanting Lin but if your team has a chance to upgrade would you not take the chance

    I'd love to try and get a combination like Taj Gibson and Lamar Odom splitting time at the 4, they'd fit right in to what we have listed above
