try to get...
1. kevin garnett
2. al harrington
3. chris webber
4. kenyon martin
now its officially the offseason for the knicks. what are some trades the knicks should be looking to make? who are some players that u think we can possibly get that can help us back to the playoffs???
chris webber? are you crazy! bad contract bad knees, need i say more...
i always said the knicks should have drafted chris wilcox, look at him now...i believe this is his contract yeear...the knicks dont need another big player who dominates the ball..chris in my opinion would be perfect to this team..would also add more athletisicm
Jesus and Moses
Where there is hope, there can be faith
Where there is faith, miracles can occur
i say leave the team alone/intact... let larry work his magic...
some ppl i think we should at least try to make a run at (in order, number 1 being our number 1 priority)
i understand c-webb might have some knee problems but he did average 20.2 ppg and 9.9 rpg this season. i deft think we need a big man who can grab some rebounds for us, considering our leading rebounder averaged 6 boards a game. and we need a big man who can give us some points consistently. i wouldnt mind if we picked him up.
I LIKED Webber in his glory days, but those days have long since been over. I think he has the worst contract of any player in the league. He has 2 yrs remaining and he earns more than any other player at his position. His numbers are bloated only b/c if the ball wasn't in AI's hands it was in his.
I like the idea that we should go after a big man that can grab some boards, but i dont think Webber is the solution.
This is just a suggestion but I'd consider a trade for Danny Fortson. I'm not too fond of Fortson b/c of his demeanor on and off the court, but he is exactly the type of player we need. A hard-nosed, max effort on every play type of guy. He grab's rebounds, boxes out and tries to intimidate opposing players with his physical play. Offensively he's horrible, but with all the scorers we have that won't be his role. He's the perfect complement to Eddy Curry. Plus he doesn't threaten the development of Channing Frye. Best part about him is that he only has 1 yr remaining on his contract. If it doesn't work out he could be used as either trade bait since his salary comes off the books at the end of the season or we can just let him come off of ours.
Dollar-wise, Crawford and Fortson's contract match-up. Crawford would be ideal for the Sonics. He's a Seattle native and can fill the role of back-up to Ray Allen or be on the floor at the same time as him.
Crawford came on strong at the end of the season when Marbury & Francis were out. He does have talent but he's a work in progress. He still can be extrememly erratic at times. He doesn't quite earn the same as our other max money players but it's still fairly significant, plus he's signed for another 5yrs.
It's been recently publicized that Fortson wants out. The only reason Seattle would accomodate him is b/c he's a headache. If Seattle does bite I would try to get Ridnour in the process...even if it meant dealing Nate as well. Ridnour is also signed for just 1 more year, and would be that proto-typical type of PG that LB wants.
i wouldnt like to see crawford gone cuz him and eddy curry got a nice bond and good chemistry when they on the court and crawford is the knicks best one on one playerOriginally Posted by hoop115
i deft see where you're coming from with the danny fortson trade. he could be a good way to make our team more intimidating down low. but then again it seems his #'s and minutes have been droppin dramatically for the past 3 years or so. im not sure if there is a reason for it or not. i persoanlly wouldn't trade jamal crawford for him tho. jamal is going to continue to improve as he gets older and would be missed once he peaks.

if it is necessary, make 1 to 2 changes, but nothing drastic that will take any of our young players away... we HAVE to keep (in no order)
-curry, frye, robinson, lee, crawford, butler, woods
That should have been applied in November 2005..Originally Posted by paris401
c. webber would be a perfect fit... on the downside of his career, with a large bloated contract...
we gotta get him...
