    Default Shawn Marion, a Knick by February?

    SI.com speculates Isiah may be able to get Shawn Marion in exchange for TT's expiring $14million by the February deadline.

    If we can get a better starting center in a 3way, like Dalembert, Chandler or Magloire, in exchange for Sweets/Jamal, then get Marion by Feb, we may be able to get back to the Eastern Conference finals.

    A starting 5 of:
    Chandler (4,5)
    Frye (4,5)
    Marion (3,4)
    Q (2,3)
    Steph(1,2)

    backed by: (9man rotation)
    James (5),
    Trevor (2,3)
    Lee (3,4)
    Nate (1,2)

    Mo, Allan, Butler (need another point guard) round out the roster (waive Rose or use the Gilbert Arenas clause to waive a future bad contract we may need to take if trading for a big man).

    Wouldn't that be one hell of a shotblocking frontcourt (Chandler, Frye and Marion)?

    hey i made the topic first, but its all good. i can see where your going with chandler. we would be very tough, but at this point i think magloire would be unnecassary because of james. if we get chandler i would rather start him as a 4, not a 5. we'd be a very good rebounding team if we get marion

    if we take on Marion's contract at $63 mill over the next 4 year... we'll be over the cap for the next 4 years and only be able to sign a player in the 2009/2010 season... with means we will not be able to resign anyone on our current roster including any of our new draft picks... that's no Ariza, no Nate, Lee, Frye... even if they all pan out as become superstars... we'll say goodbye to them all as we watch them play for other teams

    My bad on not seeing the other Marion post.

    Does anyone think the NY Knicks will EVER be able to go under the cap? Fan expectations and media attention just don't allow true rebuilding in this city, which is the way to go if you want to go under. That just isn't happening with the NBA flagship franchise, where winning is a must every year. I'm not pleased with being so capped for so long, but are any of the alternatives besides rebuilding gonna bring us below the cap?

    I like Marion's game a lot. That guy rebounds, pops the 3, blocks, jumps, knows how to finish,etc. I wish Isiah would've gotten him instead of Q for KT, but Q and Nate will be great. I'd rather have him more than Steph and Q.

    Nate, Frye and Lee will be here for approx. 4 years (2 guaranteed and 2 team option) unless traded. With time, we see how they develop and plan on signing the keepers. Trevor comes with the Gilbert Arenas clause, so he isn't going anywhere ever (Knick for 20 years) . Free agency is and always will be a bit out of our reach unless we find takers for our longterm guys.

    Then again, it sucks to be capped.

    this would be a great rade if this one goes through. TT is not a great player and i dont think he will ever be but shawn is a great player and is going to be a real force

    I thought maybe to reduce capsize to get marion we could give them crawford, or allen if he returns strong, and gives us strong trade bait, that would be dope, marion and marbury got along in phx, i dont think there would be any problem there.

    Why would Phoenix give up Marion? Well, if they match Atlanta's offer to Joe Johnson, Phoenix is basically forced to let Marion go in order to be able to have a chance at resigninig Amare to a max. Therefore, they must trade him for an expiring contract (Tim Thomas is a match). Therefore, all these suggestions that we should send them Mo, Jamal, Rose or Houston don't work for them because they are not expiring contracts, which is the reason for them letting Marion go. I'm still laughing at the suggestion that we should send them Rose and Taylor for Marion, comeon, only our GMs are that stupid.

    Maybe with the aqusation of marion isaih will finally trade marbury...


    or maybe get chandler from the bulls.......maybe they will add a #2 pick or sum.....or curry.......curry is a better scorer then chandler and they both can block shots


    James
    chandler(or curry)
    Marion
    Q-rich
    Crawford


    That is a starting 5 right there

    but i would like for isaih to maybe trade james or sum and get swift for the pf pos and start chandler or curry at the 5


    but after just signing james i highly doubt he would trade him...

    I love "the Matrix". If there was a way of getting him without killling us for the next 100 years I'd be for it. He was playing out of position at the 4 last year, he's a small forward, but he did average close to 10 rebounds a game. It would look good to start him at the three, he's also a good shooter and lockdown defender which is rare, and with VC and Rich Jefferson in our division for a while, I'd be for some kinda trade to get him. IT would have to be smart though, maybe include Rose and Taylor with TT to make that deal work, I don't know, not too familiar with all the salary cap logistics.

    dunno who we can offer chicago for chandler...but since chandler has some attitude problem maybe its not in his best interest to play for ny....steven hunter would be nice at the 4. and if were actually to chase marion, i guess we could offer jyd and rose

    i dont know if we can keep doing this sign and trade stuff. JUST GET UNDER THE CAP. can you think if we were under the cap how many free agents would want to come to a market like NY.
