And why would the Clippers give up the 8th pick for Chandler? Wilson Chandler? Nobody knows about him outside of Knick fans. And he's just coming off of two surgeries this summer, busted with weed and two seasons in a row of having to shut it down early because of injury/surgery.
Chandler has little value. Do we really think we could trade him to get the 8th pick?
Plus the Clippers already have Travis Outlaw who pretty much = Wilson Chandler.
Okay, so here is the scoop. MY friend tells me that he was out the other night for some season ticket holder event and that "his sources" said this is the latest rumblings from insiders in the Knicks organization. He said he also saw something similar on Twitter today confirming what he heard.
He told me that it's a decent source and that he was correct about the Tmac trade several days before it went down. I tried pressing him but he guards these connects and secrets like he has a reputation to uphold. Moral of the story is that it's a rumor and we will all have to wait to see if it goes down. He did expect to see it hit the mainstream rumor mill soon...we will know then if he is full of it or not.
the questions is .. why would the clippers do this... i understand they get a slasher they need in chandler but is he worth just the 8th pic.. im sure the clips will also get SA first round pick.. ithink its like 20th.
i dont kno people have stated that derick rose wont work well with lebron due to the fact he needs the ball in order to be effective .... tony parker is the same way .... ill rather go for collison + okafor ... cuz we still need da big body
Not sure why the Clips would do that trade. Is Chandler worth the 8th pick?
Honestly we've seen this time and time again. All-star caliber players on teams that request to be traded, most of the time get their wish. Especially if they paid their dues. Also the Spurs are most likely going into rebuilding mode.
You know how a disgruntled player can mess with the team's success. If the Spurs were willing to honor his request to be traded then they will go after the best scenario. I don't think this trade is that. I agree Chandler worth the 8th pick, I don't think so.
Then again you never know. There have been worse trades done. Also If that trade has any potential, there definitely has to be more involved.
They're not. Word is they're trying to trade up in the draft and are close to signing the ACB regular season and finals MVP in Tiago Splitter. They're a couple years away from rebuilding.Also the Spurs are most likely going into rebuilding mode.
Parker is disgruntled?You know how a disgruntled player can mess with the team's success.
Again, no request was made.If the Spurs were willing to honor his request to be traded then they will go after the best scenario.
Hopefully TR1LL10N will ask his buddy about that part.I don't think this trade is that. I agree Chandler worth the 8th pick, I don't think so.
So TR1LL10N, you didn't see this on twitter?

Please search for tweets by @RyanTrapasso (myself) and @JonKnicksFan from earlier today. It is very likely (but not 100% of course) that this person is just taking this and making it their own. It was a COMPLETE HYPOTHETICAL.

My mistake; it was from yesterday:
JonKnicksFan: @RyanTrapasso For instance, it’d have to be like, Curry, 8 and Douglas to the Spurs, Wil to the Clippers, Parker to the Knicks.

Just don’t want y’all getting excited for nothing. Could be true but doubting it.

tony parker never asked to be traded .... he said only way he will want 2 get traded is if hill starts ....soo his1st destination he will go to is the knicks
I'm pessimistic about the Knicks making much noise on draft night with only 4 signed players, 3 if you exclude EC, whose stock extremely low. That and limited draft picks this year and in the near future,the Knicks just don't have a lot of flexibility.
Walsh would be a f**king genius if he pulls a rabbit out of his a** and gets us a first round pick.
