Our chances of grabbing Mayo look sweeter and sweeter. This only depends on if Miami doesn't pass on Beasley. Lucky for us, we have 3 middle of no where small town franchises picking infront of us in Minnesota, Seattle and Memphis. More power to the Knicks. See, I told you guys all the good things would begin when Isiah leaves this franchise. Everyone is dying to play for New York. Check out these quotes by the lottery picks who worked out for the Knicks.
Mayo has reportedly yet to schedule even a single workout, and will probably do so after he officially hires his new agent. We’ve been told by several sources that Mayo may try to pull a Yi Jianlian and only work out for Chicago, Miami, New York and Los Angeles, while shunning the smaller market teams such as Minnesota, Seattle and Memphis. Things could certainly change as the draft develops over the next few weeks.
These kids love it!The opportunity to don the Knicks jersey in the Mecca of basketball was also on each player's mind.
"It's just great to be in this building," said Alexander. "This program has so much history, and to be in here working out in this gym with the Knicks logo on the floor, and thinking about the possibility of wearing my own Knicks jersey, it gives me chills. In college, Madison Square Garden was like my second home. I've seemed to have excelled there, and I would love it if it was my real home court."
"If I were to become a Knick, it would mean a lot. The Knicks are a great program with a great tradition here, and it would mean a lot coming to a great city with great coaching."
Terrible deal for New York.One trade that is making the rounds would involve the Knicks sending Zach Randolph and the rights to the #6 pick to Philadelphia for a smaller contract, such as Reggie Evans, and the rights to the #16 pick—after July 1st (when Philadelphia’s cap space kicks in). New York would move into position to have significant cap space in the summer of 2010 (possibly to make a run at LeBron James) by unloading the 17.3 million dollars owed to Randolph in 2010/11, and would still be able to keep David Lee around.
The 6th pick is untradable if Mayo is going to be available.
I would do Randolph for Evans and the 16th...adding the 6th pick would be ridiculous 76ers would be good at every position, Miller/Igoudala/Young/Randolph/Dalembert all works well together, only piece they'll be missig is a shooter off the bench which they can draft in the 2nd round.
Then again, Randolph was just traded for Francis and Frye; therefor we have to understand his value sticks. I would be heartbroken if this trade went down, how about you guys?
