Ok, so I just read an article that said the The Knicks can still trade Cutino Mobley's contract bringing us to a total of 46 million in expiring contracts, those contracts are
Larry Hughes 13.6
Al Harrington 10
Cuttino Mobley 9.5 (and 7 of which insurance pays for)
Q Rich 9.3
So actually 47 milllion in expiring contracts. Cuttino Mobley's contract is the most valuable because it makes a trade work numbers wise, but the team receiving him does only has to pay like 2 million of that salary. Now add these contracts with a player like Chandler and we can nab an A Player. We can also accompany whoever we draft this year with one of these contracts for another came changer.
So back to the point I have been making since the season ended, why wait until 2010. Right now if Donnie sticks to his 2010 plan it means letting Lee and/or Nate go or relying on Curry to come back to camp in shape and playing at a high enough level a team would take him for an expiring contract.
My plan allows for us to trade for top notch player (albeit not Lebron or D-Wade type players) while possibly keeping David or Nate if we want. New Orleans would take Cuttino Mobley's contract for Chandler in a heartbeat (no pun intended), they for save in cap long term and in actually monies this season almost the same way they would've in the deal OKC rescinded on. With the shot blocker in place we can now keep Lee.
