    Default Who do you first call at 12:01 tonight?

    Simple question. Here is my simple answer.....Noone!

    Rumor has us taking a meeting w/ Kidd tommorow. No way he bolts Dallas, dodges LA, and Boston to be a Knick for a one year MLE. I know Donnie is just doing his just doing his job, but, spare the earth's atmoshpere some of burnt jet fuel and cancel the meeting w/ Kidd.

    Look no player comes here for a one year deal (and that is all Walsh is offering) so why bother!

    12:01 tonight Donnie should be on the horn (officially) with trade partners for Lee and Nate.

    Speaking of which, I hear the offer for Lee from the Knicks will be around 7 million and they are hoping to get Nate for Qualifying offer. Your thoughts?

    7 million for Lee is great if we can trade Jefferies, if not, let him go even at that price! My sign and trade is Lee to Portland for a 2010 pick and Bayless.

    Giving Nate the qualifying offer is great. Means we can keep him this year and it also makes him easier to trade.

    It's gotta be Minny. Considering Donnie hasn't been onto Kahn's nuts already offering the little he can for the lot they have (Rubio).

    Otherwise, I'd be down with a call to Houston re T Mac. Houston are Mc****ed without Yao and McGrady's not gonna get it done as history has proven time & again.

    Talks with Portland are no doubt far from ceased, but again, who do we get in exchange for David Lee? After apparently stating they will offer him a mere $7m, that alone is a statement toward how non-concerned management are with retaining his services.

    Sacramento aren't worth bargaining with IMO. Nate's offer is obviously going to be less than Lee's, thus leaving a trade almost pointless unless it's for an expiring contract and a high/non-conditional pick.

    Otherwise, I'm fresh out of ideas.

    No thanks to Tyson Chandler, Boozer, Peja and the remaining majority of high priced free agents and all their flaws and question marks.

    At 12:01 there is one team to call. That team is the Orlando Magic. We NEED Marcien Gortat more than the magics do.

    A front court of

    Harrington, Hill , Curry
    Gortat, Darko

    is a front court to reckon with. Many people have eddy curry at center, i feel he is a natural power forward. A slim robert 'tractor' traylor or the big baby davis kind of PF, who can slip to center. If we take our minds off lee being a FAN FAVORITE, we would see that lee is not what we need. It took me a while to get past my like for his hustle and boards, but he is not a center. With hill and gortat holding down the paint, who is gonna get an easy layup?? with gallo help defending with his quick hands, and chandler ready to run the break. IMO.....lee must go....we got his value up higher than any team could...sell high

    I think the Rockets are gonna be all over Gortat after Yao's news.

    I hope it is the Wolves, and if it is, i hope Donnie doesnt bend over for them. The Wolves are not in a position of great strength, at least not as much as they will want you to think. Rubio clearly does not want to play there, he was the 5th pick in the draft, Minnie will have a tough time justifying picking a guy that high and letting him go back to Europe and get nothing out of it. I'd put Lee(S&T), Nate (S&T), Harrington, Duhon, Mobley's contract all on the table, and tell them, pick the best package for you. I wont give up any picks, or Wilson, or Gallo.
    My second choice would be a S&T for Lee with the Rockets, they could slide Scola to center, and give us Artest, somehow.

    Lee and Nate dont need a call... they need to get a bid in the market and then we match.

    I think at 12:01 you call Lee, then at 12:15 you call Nate, then at 12:35 you let your wife give you a little h*** for good luck AND THEN call Kahn. Seriously though, it doesn't matter who he calls first, just get sh** done ASAP!

    Agreed. All except Jason Kidd. He's not gonna take MLE on a rebuilding team & in his decline he's not needed on a rebuilding team for anything bar advice.

    Gortat would be nice if Lee is traded. In that case though, I'd wanna trade Darko to end the front court log jam that'd create. Houston need a big. Try them out in desperate times for Artest or Brooks.

    Curry needs productive minutes with results to entice a trade. Big bodies like that are rare and we HAVE to tempt someone to take his contract to really boost our stakes in the 2010 FA market.

    I'd give Douglas a chance before considering Gordon any day. We bought that pick from the Lakers to save money and picked well.

    Gordon would be a great pickup for the Knicks imo, it's not like Douglas is expected to be our starting 2 guard and Larry Hughes is on his last year in NY. We will hopefully trade his expiring at some point this season and then we'll need another 2. Problem is I don't know if we can sign Gordon to the MLE so we probably have to S&T for him which as always causes contract matchup issues and blabla.

    Just read that Bibby is on the move, I've always liked his game as he is a good leader on court and he can shoot/pass the ball very well.
    If they trade Smith, they might have some interest in Lee.
    Your thoughts?
