    Default Kevin Garnett in Orange & Blue?

    I saw this article on hoopsworld's homepage today and I am hoping that someone on knicksonline is a subscriber who can provide a brief synopsis on the article.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I normally won't take on these rumors, but I know hoopsworld is a very reputable source.

    I'd give up Marbury for KG in a nanosecond. I'm certain Minny will move KG during the next year, so it would be huge if it were to MSG. We should have the assets to make a trade for him possible.

    My opinion, this is just a rumor but there may be some truth to it. New York is one of the greatest cities in America and many players would love to play in NY. Minnesota is not going to be able to keep Garnett! They have tried and failed to build a team around him for years. It's hopeless. I think the T wolves would definitely expect Marbury in a trade for Garnett... No question! But I do think Thomas would try to trade every one outside of Marbury for Garnet first before finally letting Marbury go. If this is true expect to see a solid three man trade proposed by NY for Kevin Garnett.

    Possibilities

    3 man trade
    Mike Sweetney
    Nate Robinson
    or
    2 man trade
    Stephan Marbury
    Tim Thomas

    I dont think Minny would give up KG they had one bad year so what he is the best all around player in the league.

    Here is a summary of what the article was talking about:

    The article was saying that KG could become available to the knicks during the mid-season.
    It goes on to explain how both KG and upper management are frustrated with eachother.
    KG is mad because he wanted Szerbiak traded and instead they traded his friend Cassell for Jaric. And instead of giving spree another chance, they are going to go after Damian Wilkins and then he lobbied real hard to get Silas in as coach and instead they got Dwayne Casey, Seattle’s asst coach.
    He feels that his team now is nothing compared to what he had the last 2 seasons and is back to square one, when he told management that he would stay in Minny if they got him the right supporting cast.
    Now the supporting cast is gone.
    The new moves bring in players with potential, instead of veterans who can help him win.
    On the other hand, Mgt is pissed with KG because he did not make it easy on them to select a head coach as he was pushing for Silas the whole time.
    It was also stated that while KG has played 10 yrs in the league already, and over the past 2 seasons, his knees have begun to act up, the wolves mgt. do not want to end up with a “Chris Webber situation” where they have a $20 mil guy with busted knees with 4 more years on his contract.
    Minny mgt also learned from the “Vince Carter situation” that the more u hold on to a player that is not happy, the more his value will drop. So they feel that the time is right to trade KG.
    They also feel that with KG gone and taking some big contracts with him, the wolves have good upcoming players in Rashard McCants, Griffin who can play the four and Jaric, they can rebuild in a season or two. It depends on how well a start the wolves get off to in the upcoming season that can cause these changes to occur more quickly.

    So that now leads to the possible destinations for KG.
    His top choices are NY, Chicago and the Lakers.
    However, the Wolves will not have KG remain in the Western conference, so unless they get a REALLY awesome trade from the lakers, it is unlikely that they will allow him to be traded there.
    Next is Chicago, but it is known that Paxson shies away from huge contracts, something that their management will not be willing to take on.

    Lastly that leaves NY, where both LB and Marbury have spoken and lobbied hard for isiah to bring in a versatile big man.
    The potential deal has NY offering
    TT
    Taylor
    Penny
    2 1st rd draft picks

    For
    KG
    Trenton Hassell
    Sczerbiak

    The deals works under the salary cap rules and also provides the wolves with 2 expiring contracts and then Taylor’s in the season after as well as 2 1st rd picks.
    The knicks do not lose any core players but gain the ultimate PF, a straight dead eye shooter in Scerbiak, who is the perfect replacement for H20 if he decides to retire and a good backup guard in Hassell.

    The article also states that NY is the most favorable choice because KG’s marketability will skyrocket and his endorsement contracts will push for him to be in this kind of spotlight, and also because he is still very good friends with Stephon, contrary to what other articles have said about them. He is also good friends with Q and Crawford.
    Plus they have a hard nosed defensive and top level coach in LB – whose defensive attitude is similar to Silas, the kind of coach KG originally wanted.
    Even tho KG and wally have their issues, the article says that LB is the right man to have them leave all the unnecessary baggage off the court and play as teammates.
    The article concludes by saying that it is only a matter of time b4 KG comes to the garden.



    Thanks Rady!
