Agreed, Bargnani will start at the 4, matchup defensively with the 2nd best power player, he's the floor spacer for Felton, Melo to drive. This allows Melo to play the perimeter, rather than get eaten up by the true 4's. JR and Amare become the best bench duo in the league. This gives Woodson so many options. Add Allen as the starting 2 guard, that would be a huge move to feed off this trade.
Given the league moratorium, it does create a wave of phone calls if there was interest in Bargnani. I think league rules that a traded player can be moved within 24 hours of the first trade, as the solo player going out.
wont be able to add toney allen unless we use the 3 mil mid level exception which we are trying to use for cope
