    That's absolutely right. If we really want to improve some assets have to be put on the table. I can see Chandler and a few other pieces (draft picks, cash or one or two more players) in a sign in trade with Atlanta for Josh Smith. He'd be a good edition if you think Amare's finished.

    Personally, I think we should sit tight now that we've resigned JR. Start Amare, give him 30 mins per game and run the pick and roll. This would be the best case scenario for us. No need to hinder the team defensively by shipping out Chandler. But if Amare can't come back strong then he has no trade value and the only option will be to trade Chandler or Shumpert.

    As long as Melo or Shump are not traded anybody else leaving is fine with me.

    I would love Delfino on this team. Maybe Pablo can convince him to come for the 1.75 mil a year. Highly unlikely but we should at least try.

    It's out of left field, but I would really like the Knicks to take a Flier on either Shaun Livingston or Greg Oden. With Stats knee issues, I know some would poo poo on this suggestion, but I believe, especially in the case of Oden, its low risk high reward. If this man's knee can stay healthy, I think he will clearly bring the shot blocking presence needed. Livingston is a more than capable backup point. He doesn't shoot the 3 well, but he is great at pick and roll and penetrating to the hoop. These moves haven't been talked about and probably won't happen, but I think they would be moves that will give the Knicks, in my opinion, a better team than they had last year

    MAn alive!! If Pablo can convince Delfino to come thru and we get hometown discounts on Brand and Telfair or sign Brooks or Watson I'm happy as hell.

    Felton/Prigioni/Watson
    Shump/J.R./T.H.J.
    Melo/Delfino/cj leslie
    Barnburner/Amare/Shawn williams
    Chandler/Brand/Jerome Jordan or Earl Baron

    Improvement over last season!! I'm not a fan of the small ball line up. What ever we gain with Melo at the 4 I think we lose with Shump at the 3 with the 2 headed pt gaurd. Too small in the back court and after all Melo was Melo before he started playin the 4 position. Bargs is a finesses stretch 4 so he wont get in Melo's way on the block.

    Without making any big trades and no money to spare It's about all you could ask.

    I'd throw Darius Morris into this conversation as well. I'm not in love with any of the backup point guard options left, I'd rather take a shot at boom/bust type players for the last couple of spots.

    I think grunny already found that player in one C.J. Leslie I've watch his videos and the dude has potential and he can ball! Definitely can contribute.

    I personally like Shaun Livingston, Corey Brewer, Ivan Johnson, Will Bynum, Speights, Blair, Hickson
    I doubt we can afford most of those guys.

    Some other names might be cheaper scoop...
    Pachulia, Pargo, Telfair, Jermaine Oneal?, Mullens, Kaman, Foye, Ebanks, Dalembert, Beaubois, Ayon, Barnes

    Watch out for A.j Matthews hes signed to our summer league team.

    Also i love Cj Leslie i remember watching him in college. We got a steal with him. Reminds me of tall Lance Stephenson with a post game!
