    No one is accepting a trade for Amare. Why do people think Amare is tradeable? There is no team on this planet that will take Amare. NYK is stuck with it just like they are stuck with C.Smith

    GS is not about to give up David Lee for a loss.

    I don't see any reason for the Warriors to give up David Lee. Why trade him for 20 million off the books when they could keep the double-double machine who's a good passer? They also have Bogut guarding the paint. There's no way I'd break up Lee, Bogut, Curry, and Iguodala.

    Half of the league doesn't play defense. Ellis is cheap and he can put up 20 just about any night. I'd prefer Kevin Martin but we don't have the assets to make that happen. The only way I can see the Knicks improving is if they get a shooting guard that's more reliable than JR.

    Everyone is tough on Felton but I think he just doesn't have the right group around him. Felton's got the experience and skill to run the offense. If we get the right people and Felton can't do better than 14 and 5 I'd say trade him.

    GS need a Tyson Chandler not Amare. Plus Dolan is not going to trade Amare's $44M 2yr contract to the next team who will have a 30 minute playingtime slot waiting for Amare to be Amare.

    Dolan did that already when he traded Marcus Camby to Denver for Mcdyess.
    Camby became an elite center for the Denver Nuggets averaging 11 pts, 13 rb, 2 ast, and 3 blk per for 5 straight seasons.
    Dolan had to pay Mcdyess Max $$$ for 3 straight years of no service.
    And when Mcdyess left the Knicks and signed with Detroit, Mcdyess became a 30 minute player to help Detroit go to the FINALS.

    The Knicks so-call injured players...

    Chandler, Amare, and Felton for Marc Gasol, Z-Bo, and Mike Conley

    No way the Grizzlies would turn that deal down....

    I think it depends on Lee's willingness to resign with Golden State. But you're right, this trade is a stretch. We can move Amare next year for something. There are at least 5 teams that would love to cut 20 million from their cap and may be willing to take an expiring contract.
