    Nice move, unprotected fristrounder or protected?
    Rose has 1 1/2 years left on his contract, so it isn't to hard t take

    But I don't think, JR is going to play the point.

    So much for Isiah's word to Davis that if he moved to New York he wouldn't be traded...

    Syke... sucker!!!!

    Jalen still has game, so he will be a nice piece for now. His lack of D will drive Larry mad!!!

    I love this trade b/c Davis wasn't even the larger of the two expiring contracts, dollar-wise. We get a draft pick and Rose's contract expires next year. We'll be able to use him as trade bait next year.

    Do you guys think this is it or is there more to come before the trade deadline?

    I definitely expect a bigger deal involving Penny and one of our rookies.

    I really hope the first-rounder we got in the trade is not lottery-protected.

    no, i would think that the offense would run through Rose with Steph moving over to the 2 permanently and Woods starting at the 3. With Davis gone the question now will be who to start at PF. I'd love to see Frye start but I have a feeling the Taylor is gonna get some run first.

    RealGM is speculating the pick to be the one acquired by Toronto from the Nets trade for Vinsanity. The pick the Nets sent is the one they got from Denver for Kenyon Martin.

    Rose doesn't impress me at all. But atleast someone in the front office is showing a pulse. Lets keep everything moving and get rid of our expensive trash. I feel bad for Davis, he actually was a leader.

    yup itll be official tonight around 6 pm
    glad they sent Antonio especially after his no show of practice, not what i consider Davis being a leader?!?!
    penny will be gone too BUT this opens up our box of trades so to speak

    unless they go with Frye/Lee at the PF (which id like to see) expect another couple trades ot happen. HOPEFULLY not the rumored Portland one. this helps us with D (as Jalen is a big guard who can also play the SF and contrary to belief he is a decent defender (in Den. and Indy.)

    yea its denvers pick which shouldnt be too great BUT itll still get us another first rounder nad possible draft day trade bait, or this week trade bait. welcome to the knicks Jalen Rose!!!

    THIS IS WHAT WE NEED!!!!! This is a small step in the right direction. I hate to see Tony Davis go but it had to happen. The good news is we still have Penny for another (hopfully) good trade!

    Nice move! Jalen can play, he is very versatile.
    And it will leave some space at the PF spot for Frye. at least if he doesn't start, he should play more!

    I guess this is a good trade. I'm sad to see Davis go, he was a good player for us as well as a lockeroom leader. I was hoping we would have gotten Mike James in the trade also. Oh well, I guess we can make a run at James during the off-season. Rumors are that James will opt out of his contract at the end of the season.
