    Bargnani? I gotta say I don't really understand this move, an injury-prone bigman with no defensive/rebounding skills whatsoever... and $23M on his contract over the next two seasons. What concerns Chandler, he's not going anywhere, despite a horrible season he's still our 2nd best player and defensive anchor. Damn, this team is pretty much built around him and Carmelo.

    One of the worst trades in the past few years. I don't see how this benefits us in any way. No team with Bargnani is ever gonna be successful

    How much money do we save with Bargnani? I know Novak's deal ends in 2016.

    What's good with Andrea's contract?

    @metro: nothing, financially we're way worse off this deal, Camby and Novak combined had $18.6M left on their contracts until 2015 and 2016 respectively. Bargniani was supposed to get $23M over the next two seasons, but considering that according to some sources this trade includes the so-called trade kicker it could be way more than that. In other words, salary-wise this deal sucks big time.

    I want to like this move because it's an aggressive move, but I feel like we'll all hate this move 2-3 years from now.

    From what I see, most people hate this deal with a passion right now.

    Lets go Yankees.

    Please understand we replaced camby with a starter. We got younger. He's cope but better.... Yeah we lost a draft pick but we'll get them back when we trade amares expiring contract in a few seasons. Good move. Aggressive.

    Maybe I am missing something. Bargnani's salary for next year is about $11M. The combined salaries of Camby and Novak for next year total about $7M. We are well over the cap. I know there is some extra room in trades, but I do not think it amounts to $4M. What am I missing? I know we have a trade exception of about $1M because of the Brewer trade but I do not think we can use that in this context.

    The Red Sox won 3 out of 4 from the Jays so the Yankees are also done.

    Can't wait til the NFL and La Liga/Champions league start.

    The Knicks and Yankees are depressing me.

    AND to make things worse Spain lost to Brazil in the confed cup. ****ty Sunday so far.

    Take it from someone that's been to a lot of Raptor games. Bargnani is the softest player in the league. Rap fans boo'd him the second he got on the court to the second he got off. He's a poor rebounder,inconsistent shooter, he's slow, has no heart and every time he stepped foot on the court the other team went on a run. He couldn't get minutes over Aaron Gray for god's sake. I'm just gonna assume Grunny has something else up his sleeve because I refuse to believe anyone can be that stupid.

    It's just June, Yankees are 6 games out and they'll be a healthier team post all star break.

    They need to get rid of Phil Hughes asap.

    the only thing of value we are trading is a 1st round pick.

    Bargnani brings more production than Camby and Novak ever will in two season.

    Having a stretch 4 means he can start with Melo and Chandler. He has to stay on the floor though and I worry about him getting hurt and missing 40 games minimum.

    But what did we lose?

    Two useless players at 4 mil a year, two 2nd round picks and one 1st round pick. For a contract that pays about 11 mil a year.

    So its like trading a pick and cash for Bargnani

    Hopefully we trade Andrea for a shot blocker.
