    Trade Icon Lee & N8: Are They Tradeable?

    It's that time, we're at the start of the season, players are getting shipped to new teams. As done by NY last year trading ZBo and Crawful ( Still the best move by management in the last year or so )

    My question is, with these incredibly specific contracts is there any clause that voids a trade for either N8 or Lee during the season? Or is there any kind of glitch that'd work to our advantage or disadvantage in a trade scenario?

    I can see Lee getting the boot in a trade to a playoff bound team.
    Wouldn't bother me a ****ing infinitesimal bit to lose him really. He won't make a difference to our seasons outcome. He's not good enough to turn a team around, and if defense is the issue, god knows he's a frigging culprit in that qualm.

    As far as N8 goes, ??????, does anybody even want anything to do with him? I can't manifest any sort of trade situation for him at all.

    After a franchise worse start,the season's basically doomed with no upcoming draft pick, so let's get what we can while we can IF WE CAN?

    The question still remains.

    Is it possible to trade N8 or Lee? Could be the only way to drop Fats + Jeffries and/or get a decent pick in the draft this off-season. That'd be tasty.

    Nate and Lee both have player veto power in their contracts. They would have to give consent for a trade. Both players cannot be traded until Dec 22 because they recently signed contracts.

    I guess the only good thing about losing right now is that Nate and Lee would probably accept a trade to a playoff team and get the hell out of NY.

    Portland and Chicago are teams that come to mind.

    Nate + Lee + Jeffries to Chicago for Kirk Hinrich and Tyrus Thomas?

    Gallo and Douglas without a doubt.

    Right now I'd have to say Gallo and Douglas, but I wouldn't be so quick to exclude Hill until we see more.

    I'm thinking that if Hill looks like the PF of the future by year end we trade Lee for a solid SG or use him to trade Jeffries or Curry for an expiring contract. That would give us the room to sign a max player and another very good one.

    PG - Douglas
    SG - Player from Lee trade or Solid free agent player via Lee trade
    SF - Gallo
    PF/C - Hill
    PF/C - Max free agent

    So without even getting Lebron/Wade, next year looks pretty good.

    Maybe we deal N8 to the Lakers for Jordan Farmar or Josh Powell?

    David Lee for Kirk Heinrich or Tyrus Thomas?

    Can Lee or Nate be traded under their current contracts?

    I think it's been posted before few times.

    Yes they can be traded but they have veto power.

    That means they have to agree to the trade.

    Riiiiiiiiggghhhhhttt....

    OK, well that puts a whole new spin on things. It'd be pretty daunting to get both a one year deal as well as be traded in the same season without any future certainty.

    Hmmmmmmm....

    Lee and Nate can kill MIke D and they won't be traded...no one really wants them in the first place. Portland wanted Lee but asked for too much in the rest of the trade and Nate did not get any offers in the offseason.

    Let them play their last year and say goodbye.

    We need a whole new team.

    Keep Gallo, Douglas, Hill, and Hughes for cheap...he can be a solid backup SG.

    Everyone else should be traded or put in free agency.

    Then we get Joe Johnson, a shotblocking center, and a couple of sharp shooters to chuck up three's and make the shots instead of our horrible three point shooters we have now. Might as well get players that would be "perfect" in MIke D's system...yea that is sharp shooters with athleticism.

    And if they agree to be traded.....without Lee or Nate the Knicks become a 16 win season team, inwhich FA would stay far away from signing with the Knicks like they did the Chicago Bulls low salary-cap when Jordan & coach Phil Jackson crew left in the same year.

    Pet player coach Dantoni who never express defense, and dont have any plan other than outscoring an oponent already turned and pissed-off the majority of Knick-players from his silly decision making of "Starters & Finishers" and DNP certain players for his personal reason which have other players not giving any effort on the court.
    And we thought no body could be worst than Isiah's coaching.....or Isiah's trading player for player (add Walsh too).

    Nate has brought nothing this year and looks like Chandler with looking like he down graded his ability to score.

    Lee's pathetic defense has cost us more games than anything else. Lee can score 25 points and have 10 rebounds but he can honestly give up a good 40 points in the paint. Overall I think Lee is over rated. He is a good rebounding, hustling PF who can score above average. There are many other PF's in the league who can rebound, hustle, score in the paint and actually play aggressive defense. Lee's defense is horrible.
