outgoing from nyk-chandler darko hill duhon jeffires harrington 2nd round pick
outgoing from orlando-adonal foyle first round pick
outgoing from lakers-farmar morrison
outgoing from utah-kirilenko knicks 2010 first round pick
outgoing from chicago-james thomas unprotected 2010 first round pick
KNICKS get- j farmar, a morrison, t thomas, j james, a kirilenko a foyle
NOW I DON'T KNOW HOW WELL KIRILENKO IS PLAYING, BUT I THINK HIS CONTRACT(16 MILL FOR 2 YEARS) IS BAD ENOUGH FOR UTAH TO WANT TO GET RID OF HIM, I MAY BE WRONG.
most importantly we get 3 FIRST ROUND PICKS.
WE NEED PICKS because just letting contracts expire and holding out for james won't suffice. I'm pretty sure the minimum players number of players needed on an nba roster is more than 5(with james)
lakers-we swap slightly better crap(jeffries) for crap(farmar morrison) with the lakers and give them a 2nd round pick.jwffires could be a good pick up for a playoff team like the lakers.
bulls-bulls get a go to scorer in harrington now to try and salvage the season.they won't be worried about the draft pick because they can't draft for sh*t anyway.i think they would do this deal right now.
utah-utah jazz get three young guys with potential to be really good "sloan" type players(meaning they have the prospect of being good two-way players) a back up pg even though they have a young one, and cap relief.i think they'd be willing to do this deal now that we're winning some games and will probably sneak into the playoffs if the team remains together for the rest of the season.so before any other deal, this one needs to get done.
magic-nate to magic for a first round pick(obviously its going to be a late pick, i think that's nates value)and adonal foyle(he's not better than gortat, so he'd getting splinters)
lee we can't let walk.but I'm not sure what goes down with him.
what the knicks would look like for the rest of the season:
8 man rotation.
2010 under contract:
around 38 mill with a cap that might end up between 52 and 59 mill.
room for one max free agent.lets argue the cap falls to 52.he gets a deal starting at 14 mill.i beleive the starting max contract depends on that cap.that means if the cap is 52 a max is 16, and we can offer 14. lebron has mentioned that money won't be an issue where he signs, so I'm pretty sure a few less million dollars would be arguing semantics if he comes to new york, and nike gives him a new contract.
so we'd have gallo douglas, kirilenko, curry.i can see curry's expring getting dealt to the magic for gortat.
aldrich-curry or gortat
wall or walker douglas
IMAGINE a scenario that adding james, as well as 2 high 1st draft picks, a late first round pick, and a second rounder would give you.
forget about a championship.that's a dynasty.
WE'RE ON A WINNING STREAK.OUR NEXT GAME IS TUESDAY.THESE DEALS NEED TO HAPPEN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Wall and James play too similar to be on the same team, not enough balls to share, NO HOMO.
having wall and james on the same team is not a bad problem to have.wall would be my preference.
you can draft aldrich and monroe, aldrich and montiajunas, aldrich and johnson, it really doesn't matter where you go with it.bottom line is, with 2 high draft picks, and the prospect of james coming here, you can't go wrong.
if some **** like that happens, they're gonna have to change the logo of the nba from jerry west to the knicks token logo in red white and blue.total domination.i know we'd all ****ing love it.
I gotta hand it to you guys I read all those posts, they are full of good ideas and you guys are doing alot of homework, but the big problem for me is that no matter what we still wind up with a lineup that would not be THAT much more dominant than what we have. Not to mention what other teams are looking at our guys and saying " OH yeah we gotta get that guy"? I agree with any trade that gets us a couple of first round picks, Maybe keep Harrington. At this point anyone that another team is gonna let go aint worth a **** anyway. The only way we are getting Lebron is if HE choose US. We need a Star. Someone to light a fire under the ass of anyone he's playing with. The old knick style is slowly being phased out (scratch and claw defense) and I'll gladly wave bye as long as the future is something bright like a JWall or something else exciting to watch. LIKE THE NUGGETS!!
Everyone thinks I look like a homo?..If so, I really do not care... You must admit though, you're not the most stunning or manly specimen yourself..Seriously, you are a silly/grumpy person.
Remember, all I said was that all bar one of your trades (although great for NY) were unlikely and or unrealistic... You didn't have to get so grumpy little man... It's OK.
I never cared or respected your opinion ever, so why would I now?
Stop reaching and just learn to ignore me, like I did to you.
I can't even talk about these guys, because we don't have a number one pick.
aldrich is supposed to be alot like brook lopez.i haven't watched him play that much.montiajunas is supposed to be bargs.right now gallo > bargs.i honestly wouldn't care who we end up with.we just need those picks so badly.

Hey guys tell me what you think of this deal
Cuttino Mobley (with insurance benifits)
Ok so this is quite a complicated trade but let me tell you why this is appealing to all
The knicks, sort of self explanitory, they rid themselves of nate (who has been a problem) and jared's contract, and recieve all expirings. Blount obviously wont help but AMMO is a great shooter and Jordan may be able to provide some backup pg duties. I dont know much about Shawne Williams except he was a major problem in Dallas but he wont be here by the end of the year anyway. Point is, they get expirings for Jared's contract
The Mavs get a proven defender (say what you want about Jared but if he is anything he is a defender) and more importantly, rid themselves of Williams which they have been trying to do for a while. Plus they get rid of Carrolls 4 years, which Cuban may like.
The Lakers, as anyone who has been following them knows, have been trying to get some money relief for a while, and Mobleys contract has the insurance benifits which Buss would certainly like. They recieve Carroll who Jackson may like his outside shooting, and get rid of players who arnt critical for their team anyway. Point is, they save money and are still powerful in the West.
Minny has been trying to build their team like its nba live, so they may like getting Vujacic for a player theyve wanted to get rid of since they got him.
thoughts? I put a lot of effort into this one

I think the Sixers could do it, because they have little chance to get rid of Brand and his contract. They also could bring in Maggette who would perfectly fit their style of play..and Eddy's contract brings them tons of cap relief in 2011 as his and Dalembert's contract are coming of the books.
...Brand to GS.....Don Nelson ist crazy and desperate enough to do this....
...for the knicks, there's no cap relief on this trade, but it gets us a capable, shot-blocking c/pf-duo
Your thoughts on this?????
I like Biedrins game, but he's always hurt, seems like he never plays...
