Deke never really fit in and Houston has a huge contract. I think they will leave those two unprotected, but the Bobcats won't take either one. If the 'Cats do get a star player, it will probably be the Wizards' Stackhouse.
The Knicks need to try to rid themselves of Houston, he still has trade value, but he is on the down fall of his career and will only get worse. Might as well trade him while yall still can.
