Let's pull off the blockbuster trade!
You want to talk blockbuster, why not throw the house at the Hornets who are a struggling franchise financially and go for Chris Paul.
Give them a Marbury type deal. Give them this years first round pick and 2012's first round pick. Along with Nate and some expiring contracts that make it work.
Tyson Chandler is an underachiever who apparently has a bad toe injury. He's really had 1 and 1/2 good NBA seasons so i wouldn't be getting all hyped up on getting Tyson Chandler.
Now going after Chris Paul i'd get excited about. Its probably about 5% chance of happening but its worth a shot.
Plus if we have a PG like Paul and superstar friendly coach like D'Antoni we'll have no problem recruiting players to play in NY.
Sign and Trade Nate Robinson
1st Round pick 2009 and other stuff
obviously everyone would be for getting Chris Paul; chances of that happening are so slim almost not worth mentioning, but can wish can't we..
When can trades start happening / be talked about? Day after championship game or lottery or what
I thought the same thing at once, but really what is the difference between adding him this year as opposed to next? I mean lets say he comes here this coming season, the team shows some promise and we are more attractive to FA's in 2010.
The problem is, if we did execute a trade it would for sure spell the end for either Lee or Nate. Adding Chandler fills the biggest need we have. Trade Q for him straight up, no need to throw in a pick because his numbers did dip this season and he did have a trade for him voided because of an injury
Stephen Curry (draft pick)/Duhon
39 W 43 L possible playoff birth with some promise. Now package Harrington and Wilson for Prince, slide Danillo at the 3 sign AI to a MLE deal and now we're getting somewhere.

Chandler should pay 50% of his salary to Chris Paul. Without him, he is NOTHING. If The Knicks go after him they are dumb, besides I think we've had enough of those Bulls players, don't you?
The Hornets originally wanted to trade Tyson Chandler to the Thunder, for Chris Wilcox, but Chandler failed his physical. The Knicks should just offer Wilcox for Chandler. Chandler would be a good addition to the Knicks, because he would provide defense and rebounding at the center position. At worst, Chandler would make a solid backup center, so I don't see anything wrong with trading Wilcox for him.
Why would they trade him for another expiring contract with far less value to their team? The only reason they would is if they got young talent in return or draft picks. Something I really hope the Knicks don't do.
Just wait for Chandler to be a FA.
After they inevitably get bumped from a demoralizing first round, the want to trade is going to be boosted even more.
Collectively throughout 4 games, these are Chandler's accumulative stats:
4 or 5 turnovers
fouled out in the blowout of game 4.
And he's in bad condition health wise.
yeah, but they can't save any money by trading Tyson Chandler since his contract expires after next year. The only reason they would trade him at this point is if they could include Peja Stojakovic and get 2 expiring contracts in return.
I don't know about you, but I don't want anything to do with Peja Stojakovic who is still signed for 2 more years. The knicks taking advantage of New Orleans financial issues would be something the knicks of old would do. Hopefully, things are different and they just worry about getting under the cap first.
Tyson chandler's contract gives him $11.85M next year and he has a player option for 2010 at $12.75M. Given the questionable state of his health and the level of his play, unlike LeBron nd DWade, he is not likely to exercise his 2010 option to become a free agent. He will take his $12.75M with a thnk you. That, I am sure is one of the reasons the Hornets are likely to try to move him.
We are currently stuck with Curry through 2010. We are not going to move him, if at all, until, or perhaps short of, the trading deadline. And then only if comes into camp in shape and ready demonstrate some skills. As a result, I do not expect us to touch Chandler before we eliminate Curry. Otherwise we mess up the 2010 "master plan."
