    I really don't understand how anyone can think this is a good trade. That first round pick is going to be a late pick at best (but I guess it's better than having no picks) from what's being said...and Jalen Rose is 33, on the decline, and overpaid. If we kept AD, we let his contract expire and at least take a further step towards trying to get some room under the cap. Now they're just that much farther from that.

    With Rose or without him, this team still isn't that much better. And now one of the young guys (Mr. Lee) is going to lose playing time. This trade is just another clueless one by Isiah. He has no clear plan or vision for this team, and I think he just made this deal to: 1) Show he's not affected by all the late controversy and 2) Try and salvage his job.

    Please fire this man now and bring in a GM with a clear plan and vision for this team.

    Getting under the cap is just not possible in New York. Rose's deal will expire next year anyway and we get a pick in the process.

    I smell a nice trade before the deadline, with Penny, a pick and a rookie for an impact player, so let's hope Isiah is cooking a big one.

    Stop trashing Isiah, he isn't that much hornier than the rest of us people... nobody's perfect and he certainly has done a better job than Scott Layden.

    Portega....the idea of never getting under the cap, is shortsighted product of Mike Francesa's brain, and if the Knicks feel the same, we'll never win anything. It's become obvious that overspending is NOT the way to win in the NBA. The sooner Dolan figures this out and gets rid of Isiah the better. Detroit and San Antonio have payrolls that are less than half that which the Knicks have now. Even if you add their collective payrolls up, I think it still barely falls under our's. That's pathetic given their records and ours.

    In looking at this trade again, I guess it isn't so bad now that we at least have 2 picks (albeit that 2nd one is a late 1st rounder from the Spurs...so likely useless)....I still don't see how Rose fits into anything though. He's awful defensively and he's 33. I heard his contract went past next year, buf if you're right, then it's not as bad as I thought. Still he doesn't exactly fit ino Larry Brown's system with his bad D.

    As far as your suggestion about another trade...let's hope NOT. Giving away more picks is the last thing this team needs...and besides, exactly what impact player do you think we can get with a package like that? The other teams around the NBA have GM's much smarter than Isiah, and not foolish enough to just give us something for nothing. At best we get another Malik Rose type out of it, that adds more to the cap. Lets sit on Penny and at least let that contract go...otherwise try to package him for hopefully another pick in return

    [B]They were desperate to do something, and, they could use a scoring small forward. That about sums it up. This is New York, after all, where Larry Brown is always itching to shake up the roster and the payroll is never an issue. Rose is a proven scorer who played for Brown during their Pacers days. He might help fill New York's void at the 3 spot, and perhaps provide the Knicks an emotional lift. New York has lost nine of 10 as its rookies have hit a wall, and the energy has all but been drained from the Garden. Davis, meanwhile, was unhappy in Gotham. The Knicks will miss his leadership and solid defense, but they already had a crowded frontcourt with Eddie Curry, Channing Frye, Maurice Taylor and Malik Rose. Jalen Rose, at least, gives them help at a spot where they need it. And if it doesn't work out the Knicks still have the extra first-round pick.

    Payroll should never be an issue in NYC if the money is going to players thare actually good and worth it. The rookies, Qyntel Woods, and Butler and Ariza aside....the whole rest of the roster is waay overpaid and is not worth any cent they are getting. And it was Idiot Isiah that brought them all here or signed them all. That's just flat out poor managing by him, and by the idiot owner who is letting him do it.
