More and more rumors are coming out of a possible trade involving Seattle and New York again. First it was Lewis now Ray Allen. Well this is the trade that Isiah wants to do next with his extented contract he made. The trade probably will be done in the offseason involving Knicks Nate Robinson,Channing Frye, Jared Jeffries, James, and a High draft pick. Oh no the knicks might have just done it again.The Knicks dont need another SG. I think the Knicks should stick with what they got now.

where would crawford fit in? i dont know if this trade would be possible but we wouldnt be giving up much to get a great player like allen. theres no room for nate in a healthy rotation and channing seems to soft for the nba. i love the team we have now but adding a player like ray allen would make us ligit contenders for the division and a little run in the playoffs next year.
Yeah, but also were would Steve Francis fit into this? I know that the Isiah wants the best for the team but Ray Allen is getting old and instead of getting him, the knicks should get a SF like Luol Deng or a guard like Monta Ellis. They are both young and full with potential.
Do you guys like Mikki Moore?
I would gladly accept Ray Allen if we dump Francis, Crawford and Robinson in the process.

i hate miki moore and pretty much every other net i hope we can finally get past them this year
I think Ray Allen, as good as he is, is not the answer for the Knicks! The Knicks need 2-3 pieces to really put this team over the top.
1) They need a perimeter defender
2) They need a low post force. David Lee is a great rebounder but he does get pushed around. So the Knicks need a strong opposing force in the paint.
3) The need a pure PG. Steph can score but he can't lead a team, so a true QB is what is needed to run the floor.
I said this a couple of weeks ago in another thread, but I really think the Knicks need someone in the mold of a Tayshaun Price, Josh Howard, or Caron Butler....These guys are all unselfish, low maintenance players, who are willing to play defense, and have the ability to be a dependable second or third option on offense. I think other options might be Rashard Lewis or possibly Gerald Wallace, but neither of them play a lot of defense. Luol Deng, or even Richard Jefferson would also work, but I think they're both pretty untouchable.......
But Ray Ray is one of the best SG's in the NBA, and if we can acquire him, we would totally upgrade offensively. Steph and Ray would be a perfect back court. Steph hasn't had a guy who can shoot like Ray since Houston, and when Steph and Allan were on the same roster...Allan was mostly injured. Marbury is a half court PG, his penatration can open alot of opportunities for Allan.
I don't see why Seattle is going to deal Ray Allen, they need a legit big man, and Channing Frye is the opposite of that. But if Seattle accepts, I would have no problem if Isiah pulled the trigger.
the problem with rayray for frye is $$$$... we would have to include another player/s ... and i doubt we have anyone else that seattle wants...
maybe they want burger king james back... fat chance...
You know that Seattle once had J James, I doubt they want him again.
The #1 thing the knicks need is a shot blocker. We use to have a couple of them named dikembe mutumbo and marcus camby. I wouldnt mind havin camby back buthes not gonna wanna come off the bench and back up curry. We just need a big guy who if nothing else blocks shots. I dont care if he cant score. Curry and frye play no defense down low. Lee is a good defendeer, but not a shot blocker. Maybe theo ratliff will be available in the off season.
