    Default there is a trade coming

    espn just reported that the knicks are looking to resign earl barron

    Our frontcourt is already big but this is just pfs ANd cs
    Mozgoz
    Turiaf
    Jordan
    Amare
    Randolph
    Curry
    Add barron there is something going down I wish it was for Jason Richardson and robin lopez for turiaf Jordan chandler walker curry cash and a draft pick but it could also be with la for odom and there expiring sharp shooter forgot his name but it would work out this would mean dantoni would get his point forward and la would have a deaper front court it would help them get stronger to beat the stacked heat because they are getting quality pieces in haslem miller possibly big z then they will get bell plus alston and arroyo that my prediction

    Getting Earl Barron back does not necessarily mean there is a trade going down. Remember Turiaf might not be able to start this season because he is still injured. Don Nelson also said that Turiaf when healthy is a player that only will play about 15 minutes a game. Amar'e does not want to play center and Randolph is a pf and sf. So that leaves the Knicks with only Eddy Curry. The Knicks need Barron with they want to make some noise at the center spot.

    Did ESPN say Odom's and Vujacic's name?

    I would think Troy Murphy would be our main target. Rebounding machine, can play PF/C, can shoot the ball better than anyone on our team not named Gallo and has an expiring contract.

    T-Prince would have to be option #2, given his defense and expiring contract, so he can tutor Fields.

    I think Barron, Landry and Ewing all are wild cards to not only earn a spot on the roster but to be the final pieces in the actual rotation.

    I think we really want to dump Curry, and even include Chandler to entice someone... but only for an expring contract. This may change if Carmelo Anthony signs his extension in DEN.... Then we have to go to Plan-C.

    Plan-A was Lebron
    Plan-B is Melo
    Plan-C is trade Curry for a player to help us win now and then shoot for Paul in 2012

    If we sign Barron, I think it's just an elimination process. See who's playing the best and run with them.

    We have complete flexibility through the front court at season's end. Bar Amar'e's enormous contract obviously.

    So it's about finding out who plays best with Stat. The best complementary skill set.

    Jordan - primarily a shot blocker
    Mozgov - apparently a banger, hustler, shooter, shot blocker (too good to be true?)
    Barron - decent rebounder, great set shooter
    Turiaf - not really a center but can play the role well defensively.

    The 5 AND the 2 are going to be the spots in which we constantly rotate/evaluate.

    Baron adds options to the process of elimination.

    Dont be surprised if Anthony Randolph is involved in the deal to get Carmelo

    I don't understand why I keep seeing Curry's name in these thread post. If I'm not mistaken if we trade him don't we lose out cap space for next year? No Curry trade unless the person we are getting back is Mello.

    Melo or Chris Paul (and if it were Chris Paul, Felton would obviously be in the deal, and thus, it couldn't possibly get done until December 15nth at the very earliest). Otherwise, Curry finishes out his last year.

    odds are it is Melo who gets dealt, Paul will come after.

    The Hornets are demanding too much for Paul, they turned down Devin Harris and the #3pick for Paul so we can't say we have anything better and do we really want to lose all the nice young peices we added?

    We should focus on Melo this year, the possibility of him being traded is likely since Denver knows he doesnt want to come back, so atleast they can get something for him.

    I'd much rather go after Melo as well, however, I'm not so sure how likely he is to be dealt. George Karl came out and said they "need" melo on the team and they have repeatedly said they simply aren't trading him. They are going to put all the pressure on him on the world to sign that extension by not even considering trading him and they have the leverage to do just that.

    Eithey way though, I agree that Chris Paul being traded is extremely unlikely and I am not interested in giving up something more valuable than Devin Harris and the #3 overall pick

    I don't see Randolph being traded for Melo. His upside is too gigantic. We have a of trade pieces, but as far as I am concerned Randolph is untouchable.

    I agree I wouldn't move Randolph for LeBron James(hehe no pun intended), But seriously this kid has way too much upside and talent to trade...

    Are you people crazy!!! Randolph is absolutely not untouchable...


    Randolph
    Douglas
    Chandler

    for Melo

    He'd be crazy not to pull the trigger.

    Randolph is a keeper at least for now, hes got potential to be a great center if he can get strong enough. We gotta see what he can do....who knows how good he can be.
