of course as a Knicks fan I would hate this deal to go down thus I am naturally going to downplay this trade
That said even with me trying to be non biased I don't see how that is a good deal for Denver.
Now at first I thought it was Noah and Deng for Carmelo then I got kinda scared, but as the reports suggest Denver has no desire to take back Deng's huge contract that said I don't see how the deal could get done.
They literally do not have the peices to make this deal happen if Deng's contract is not included to make it work financially because obviously Noah's 3 million dollar contract can't be swapped straight up for Carmelo's 13 million.
Deng is basically making the same amount per year as Brandon Roy....problem is he is not that calliber of player.
Parting ways with Carmelo and taking on a cap killing contract (the year before the New CBA is set to come out) would be a double whammy.
If the reports are right that NY and Chicago are Melo's prefeered destinations then we gotta feel good about our ability to trade for him vs. Chicago if Denver is truly leary of Deng's contract.....which they should be in my somewhat biased opinion
