    Trade Icon Possible trade involving Curry and Shawn Marion

    The Shawn Marion Destination?
    What could be better for Shawn Marion, who has been struggling with the Miami Heat this season, than a return to a familiar coach and a familiar system?
    According to reports out of New York today the Knicks and HEAT have been having some level of discussion about a possible swap involving Marion heading back to the Mike D'Antoni system and disgruntled center Eddy Curry heading to the warmer climes of South Beath.
    Such a move would certainly address needs on both ends. Even if the Knicks never found a way to get the most out of Marion, his ending contract is precisely what the front office is looking for. Frankly, though, Marion might just be the piece that takes the Knicks from pretenders to serious playoff hopefuls.
    On the Miami side, if Curry can get into shape (and don't think Pat Riley would be any easier on him than D'Antoni has been), he could be the missing link for the HEAT. Not that Mark Blunt isn't an All-Star center . . .but the HEAT have actually gone to starting power forward Udonis Haslem in the middle. They need beef, and Curry has plenty of that.
    This deal is not imminent, from what I've heard, because the salaries don't match and it's complicated to make that happen, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see this conversation come to fruition in the near future.

    There probably isn't much truth to this, but it's very interesting. We get an all-star player who's used to D'antoni's system, for Curry. Only problem I can see is that we already have a similar player in Wilson Chandler and there may not be enough minutes. But if we could get rid of Curry then it's definitely worth it.

    Well Curry and Malik Rose would work in terms of cap. Now I'm not at all concerned with adding Marion because of Wilson because I think they would play well together. The problem is I think Wilson would get moved back to the bench because Mike Dantoni is not going to move Q to the bench. But Wilson and Marion would give us a very versitile front court.

    Duhon
    Crawford
    Marion
    Chandler
    Zach

    Not a lock for the playoffs by no means, but an obvious upgrade! But like you said likely this deal doesnt get done. Although remember that rumor that Riley went after Curry at the trade deadline last season. I guess he figures Curry at the top of his game is almost as good as Shaq when he was with The Heat. Now if The Heat can get a third team involved they could get Steph and Curry.

    Steph
    Wade
    Beasley
    Haslem
    Curry

    Top 4 team in The East possibly

    I think if we were to get Marion, D'antoni wouldn't have a problem moving Q to the bench. Q has had one good game so far, in a losing effort, so he should be on the bench even without this trade, in my opinion.

    3 team deals are hard to to do, and the Heat would have to give up a lot of players to be able to take on Steph's large salary. Once again, not likely, but you never know, and it would be nice to be able to get rid of Curry and Steph, since they don't have a place on the team.

    With a good defensive center, that's a top-tier team in the Eastern Conference.

    I kinda have to doubt this because there was a big feud between Shawn and D in PHX. If this was made, Marion might just get the Steph treatment and they'd wait for his contract to expire.

    What I heard is that D WANTED Marion gone. Supposedly he was a terrible locker room guy and was pissing everyone off. They felt just getting rid of him was addition by subtraction. I heard he has worn his welcome in Phoenix out.

    Damn....Sounds like someone else I know....

    if we get around 7-10 pick in the 2009 nba draft(where we will likely end up unless we get lucky) im looking at

    Thabeet-BIG need at center plays defense great shot blocker good scorer around th basket with huge upside( ill put his profile in my draft thread)

    Jennings-already explained him

    and the biggest sleeper if he enters the draft;

    Jrue Holiday-great combo gaurd compared to D-Wade i would love to have this dude.

    -ill add all their stats and analize them in the draft thread when the season gets underway...

    and to stick to the subject of the draft i say no to Marion wants to much money and long term commitment, two things we wont do and we gotta similar player who'll be better in Chanlder we dont want too much of the same players on this team which is what hurt us in past years.

    I remember hearing something about Marion making a problem in the locker room, but I don't know too much about it. But the last thing we need is chemistry problems. I don't think he brings much more to the table than Chandler does, but on the other hand, we can't be picky if we can get rid of Curry.

    Datprince, thanks for the info. I don't watch a lot of college ball and it's great to have some info on these guys other than youtube and that draft express website.

    gettin marion right now whether he works out or not allows us to get rid of curry's contract. we can let marion go after the season. iwould do it ina heartbeat even if we bought him out as sson as he came over

    we'd probably have to include malik in the trade to make the salaries match. if i was walsh id tell the heat if they argeed to the trade, they would be be the only team in the east id allow marbury to go to.
