With a healthy Nate and the added depth of Jefferies and hopefully Mobley will be just as good as we were before the trade. And before the trade we were average and after the trade were still average.
I know, but the Knicks could have cleared capspace a different way. They could have sent Curry, Richardson, and Lee to the Heat for Shawn Marion. The Heat are dying for a center, and Lee would have been good enough bait for them to make the trade.
