    Default Randolph to Chicago?

    Apparently there were some discussions between the New York Knicks GM Donnie Walsh and Chicago Bulls GM John Paxson yesterday that fizzled regarding a possible deal that would have sent the Knicks Kirk Hinrich and Drew Gooden in exchange for the Knicks Power Forward Zach Randolph. The talks however cooled when the Knicks requested that Ben Gordon by substituted in place of Kirk Hinrich in the deal. Although Gordon is a restricted free agent, the Knicks were hoping for a sign and trade. Apparently D’Antoni covets Ben Gordon for his deep range and excellent physical conditioning. Personally I feel that the Knicks may be better off with Hinrich in the potential deal, as it would solidify their point guard quandary, and act as insurance if they run into another year of the Marbury disappearing act. Although Hinrich had a slow start shooting the ball last year, he improved as the year progressed and by seasons end was once again the model of consistency that has defined his college and pro career to this point.

    gordon or no deal... randolph is a double double guy gordon picks up the points and gordon the rebounds heinrick is a salary problem and we could always get duhon off free agency

    duhon at 1 collins
    gordon at 2 nate/ qrich
    chandler at 3 jeffries
    gallinari at 4 balkman
    gordon at 5 curry

    lineup is small thanx to gordon but he is better than curry

    crawford and lee on the way out with marbury

    trade lee and crawford to get some future draft picks or young talent
    marbury for expiring contracts or just let him go

    This trade is awesome.

    Gooden can rebound play defense and center.
    He has an expiring contract

    Gordon is a NYC baller with mad skills.
    Gordon > Barbosa
    Gordon could average 24 ppg on the Knicks.

    Please do this deal.

    -Trade sending Zach Randolph out of New York.
    -Bringing in Drew Gooden to possibly help our Center disaster.
    -Swapping in Ben Gordon instead with the trade.

    Someone had made a thread about this trade last night, but I have not been able to find any crediable sources to confirm this talk. But like I said in the other thread I would take just about any player if it means moving Zach. Lets say we do get Hinrich in this deal, he is a player that a team would want, also why isnt Donnie thinking of a three team scenerio? We trade Zach to Chi for Drew and Kirk, and then we trade Kirk to another team thirsty for a PG for an expiring contract....I know a lot easier said then done, but there are options if The Bulls are insistent on including Hinrich.

    But again I looked all last night for another source to co-sighn this talk and there wasn't any. For sure Hoopshype would've been all over it.

    What's wrong with just taking Hinrich and Gooden? The most important thing is to get rid of Randolph. It's been widely reported that Donnie wants to buy out Marbury. If that's true, then Hinrich would be a nice fill in, and would do well in D'Antoni's system. I think Gooden is just sweetening the deal. Maybe Donnie is playing hardball a little, but damn, if you got the chance to trade Randolph, than do it.

    We could still do a trade of Eddy Curry for a shooter, or possibly a sign and trade to Charlotte for Okafor.

    Default Three team deal that works

    Knicks, Clippers, and Bulls

    Knicks get Gooden (expiring contract) and Mobley (2yr 16 million)

    Bulls get Zach

    Clippers get Kirk Hinrich

    other players would have to be thrown into the mix, but that is the core of the trade.

    Clippers are looking for a PG with Livingston and Cassel gone, they get a good one in Hinrich

    The Knicks get the type of players Donnie is looking for, ones with expiring contracts but keep us competetive.

    The Bulls....and this is why I don't think this is a realistic trade rumor. I can't for the life of me see why the Bulls would want Randolph. Now don't get me wrong they are starving for a low post scorer, but Zach's baggage has made him tough to sell, and John Paxon is as conservitive a trader their is....Although his trade for Larry Hughes made no sense and neither did the Aldrige trade, or the Noah pick with Tyrus Thomas already there...hey maybe he would take Zach!

    Rose/Gordon
    Huges/Gordon
    Deng/Noccioni
    Randolph/Noah
    Thomas/Noah
    Low to middle Playoff team in the East

    Steph/Nate
    Crawford/Mobley
    Q/Chandler
    Gooden/Gallanari
    Eddy/Gooden

    Fighting for 8th seed

    Walsh needs to pull the trigger on this trade. Gooden is an excellent PF. Just what we need. Maybe with Gooden at the four Curry can actually be of some use at the five.

    Is it really? call me stupid, but i mean come on, are we really going to focus on JUST getting money for lebron james. I mean common. There are a bunch of other teams trying to get lebron. besides, he already stated he prefers brooklyn, and nj is in a position 10 times better than us. All im sayin is, the knicks should really try to get good players in return too, just in case. on a completely other note, why haven't i heard any talk about roy, foye, aldridge, gay, and all the guys from that draft. All iv herd people talk about is lebron, lebron, lebron, lebron,lebron, lebron, lebron, lebron,lebron, lebron, lebron,lebron,lebron lebron, lebron, lebron,lebron, lebron, lebron, lebron, lebron, lebron,lebron, lebron, lebron. Wy havn't i heard any serious talk about interest in these guys.
