lol - you're right...it's not going to go over well
I think Gallo is the only untouchable on the knicks right now.
Chandler can be traded but I highly doubt it will be to help move Jefferies contract....most likely it will be for Curry's
If Jefferies 3 of 4 shooting from downtown was no fluke in the last preseason game, I can see him being easily traded for an expiring if he keeps that up.
Unless of course, say Houston realizes that McGrady's comeback is well like all the others and he can't play this season...and with Yao out with the foot fracture...
Right now they have 6'6 Hayes playing center, with no backup C and that's not going to cut it. Atleast if Curry gets back in decent shape by november, they would have a servicable bigman, plus a backup in Jefferies and then there's nate and chandler to pick up the scoring load...since mcgrady and yao are out.
And well $3mil in cash to sweeten the deal.
I'd hate to lose chandler, but there's a better SF that we're trying to catch next summer.
McGrady = $23.2 mil
Curry = $10.5 mil
Jefferies = $6.5 mil
Nate = $4 mil
Chandler = $1.2 mil
Cash = $3 mil
Total = $25.2 mil
That would be a HUGE amount of capspace next summer for 2 max free agents and the ability to resign Lee and get some other decent fill in pieces to round out the roster...
A knicks fan can dream right! lol
