    Default Nate Robinson Trade

    Got this from TheKnicksblog.com and it kinda makes sense in my opinion. We add a really cheap shooter and get a 25 year old big man who at one point we coveted and almost drafted. If we could talk to Vasquez and get a feeling if he would come over to play if it was NY i would deffinately consider.


    "So Andrew Smith (who’s sequestered himself in an undisclosed location studying for the Bar Exam) and I got to thinking the Magic, who already could use some scoring punch in the back court, might want to consider dealing for Nate Robinson.

    Now I have to be fair, I think that keeping Nate is critical for any shot at making the playoffs, but the Knicks might consider moving their sparkplug guard for the right deal.

    The team has a roster spot with the retirement of Cuttino Mobley. I wonder if the Knicks would consider a Nate for the rights to Fran Vasquez and J.J. Redick?

    Vasquez is 25 and has resisted coming to the NBA. His numbers are modest this year, but he’s a capable big that might flourish in NY under Mike D’Antoni. Vasquez has resisted coming over here after being selected 11th overall by the Magic in 2005. The Magic are still very high on the young man, but Nate could keep them afloat and add great depth moving forward.



    Redick is a obviously shooter who could fill in off the bench. I think the Knicks lose out for the short term, but could benefit for the long term. Nate’s turnovers and spotty decisions have often been a killer for this team.

    Just a thought, maybe the team tries to capitalize on the Magic’s need for some help. Redick has a qualifying offer in 2010-11, which he’d likely decline considering Jason Kapono’s contract."

    I support this 100%. Also save a few million contract wise.

    Well Vasquez is still a bit of a mystery to me, has anyone followed him to see how he is doing in Europe (or where ever the hell he is)?

    True JJ would give us shooting, but, he would not give us the dominance that we can get from Nate on any given night. Look I know Nate can be a bit eradict, but, that has gotten much better this season. JJ Redick isnt going to run plays down, go up for blocks on big men and just play with that sort of intesity. Redick is the perimeter version of Eddy Curry, he can shoot with the best of them but that is about it. I'd only do this deal if they take can somehow make it a three team deal that also liberates from Curry's contract. Like involving OKC in the trade and them sending Vasquez and Curry there somehow.

    But this deal would be a rape.

    We can do a trade with orlando without involving another team if they are willing. I hate giving up nate just to get rid of curry but if orlando wants nate this could work for both teams. Orlando get nate a 15-17ppg/5apg PG and also because they don't look for cap space in 2010 so they can use curry as a expiring contract that season (or if curry gets healty and in shape he can be a good reserve for howard). NY get a shooting guard (and a back up big) but most important is getting rid of curry contract.

    We have a roster spot open and if Marbury is bought out, there will be two. There is a chance that Marbury will go after the Celtics game on the 6th. Perhaps Orlando could be a destination besides Boston.

    Why hasn't Walsh filled the already open spot? Perhaps he wants some flexibility, for example, to trade Curry for two bad, but expiring, contracts. Unfortunately, I think we are going to have to wait until next year to trade Curry. He has not played at all and is not likely to tear things up before the trade deadline.

    If the Knicks wait until March 1st to let Marbury go, he will not be able to participate in the play offs. I would be disappointed in Dolan/Walsh, if they did that. Not a classy move.

    If Steph is bought out after March 1st then look no further than Dolan. I think Donnie has more class than that, Donnie has stated the only place he doesnt want Steph is Miami but it is obvious Boston is where Steph is likely headed.

    I think Donnie truly wants this to be over with and would sign off on any buyout.

    I think Walsh hasn't filled the open roster spot because we do not have an open roster spot. People keep thinking of Cuttino, previously while we were waiting on a ruling on the exception we didn't get, and now he is still on the roster until the trade deadline as Walsh explores trading his contract at the deadline. For now, no open roster spot, no Ewing Jr, etc. PS I doubt I want Vasquez, last foreign center we touched never came over and was last seen in the olympics being leapt over by Vince Carter

    I doubt that trade will ever happen, why would Portland want to take an inconsistent combo guard over a talented athletic shooter?

    Best trade situation in my eyes for the Knicks is:

    Marbury
    Nate

    for

    Iverson
    Bynum

    We get a starting shooter with age experience and an expiring, and a young up and coming PG to replace Nate. If only.

    Fran Vazquez doesn't have what it takes to be an NBA player, he's too soft so let him stay at Barcelona.
    I think we can get much better for Nate.

    What makes Bynum so up and coming?
    Enlighten the forum...for the first time in 3 years you've been here.
    Because he's young?
    What has he done?

    He's 26, not really that young.
    He has no 3pt range, career 26% 3pt shooter
    Terrible shooter, career 67% FT shooter

    Aww poor metro, I owned you so hard in the other thread that you had to come here to try to pick apart my post? I, unlike you, think of trades which are within the realm of reality.

    Also if you could read, you would realize I have 50 posts over my three years here, apologies that it doesn't match your tally of 4000, but you see, some of us have a life.

    As to your points, Bynum is "up and coming" in the sense that he has shown improvement this year, is 47% FG terrible? Duhon isn't exactly a ****-hot shooter either, but is he a bad player? I guess you would say he is since he took your beloved Marbury's spot on this TEAM.
