The Knicks will not have enough flexibility in the 2010 offseason to resign over two of our seven (7) expiring contracts if we sign just one 2010 star FA. We are only allowed to go $13M over a (maybe) $53M cap situation.
It look like we knock the resigning of our 7 expiring contracts down to just 3 players....Duhon, Harrington, and Lee (do to Dantoni rotation).
We could afford the cost of resigning Duhon & Harrington.
David Lee 2009-10 performance (so far) look like another "double-double" season, making his worth as an unrestricted FA $12M per (bird rights).
The 2010-Plan can not mess with those type of resigning numbers for one player, if the plan is to sign one of the Star 2010 FA.
SF-Wilson Chandler (bigman) perfomance I would have to put his value & worth much higher than Anthony Randolph all-around performance.
So a trade of Lee for Randolph is straight robbery.....a trade with Utah for Milsap or Boozer & our 2010 draft pick for Lee is more equal.
The Utah Jazz organization has probably set big plans on getting a star player out of 2010 draft with the Knicks 1-9 start this season, and .........
