    Default Gilbert Arenas

    Short and sweet, I think if the Price for Melo is too high or den decides to keep him for whatever naive reason they have, Gilbert would be a nice sleeper trade Donnie could probably pull off, that would likely cost us Curry and a bit player. Only thing is Im not sure what cap implications that would mean for us as far as getting Melo if Den holds him. But Gilbert is playing well with wall and in this system would probably go nutty. Him and Felt... I dont think the league would be rdy for that with Stat, honestly. Thoughts?

    i wouldnt mind it but start him over fields? and as long as the price isnt high im all for it no point to give a lot of a one year rental. i still think we should just wait it out and see what happens with the melo situation if anything wait till the summer and get him. otherwise we should learn from the tmac scenario where we gave a lot to get him and mac didnt give us much. arenas i wouldnt mind if its a low price like maybe a second rounder and like curry or something otherwise no thank you

    While Gil is a little cooky, I think his ability would be worth a short term gamble. He wont be the man on the team, just one, can play the one and two, and does not need to have plays ran for him to be effective in this offense. Also means that we can use him to spell Felton at the 1 and keep Douglas in strict scorers mentality. Would add to our bench moving Fields to reserve. We get deeper and a lot better very cheap. Imagine the quagmire (Clyde) it puts a defense in, Gallo on one side, Gilbert the other, stat and Felton workin pnr... talk about spreading the floor.

    I still want Melo, but its just that, a want. What our team really NEEDS is a bonafide 2. Gilbert solves that and more

    Uhh... doesn't he still have a few years left on his monstrous contract? Think it's upwards of 20 mill per so we'd need to give alot more than curry contract for salary match, and it would take us out of any carmelo/paul/williams possibilities next couple of years. If Gil was expiring then sure I would look into it, but then why would Washington be interested

    I stated previously was not sure abt his $. I just know Wa is gonna trade him, and he could help. N if we dont get Melo, we wont get Paul or Williams anyways. May not get them regardless. Felton may play well enough to not warrant it.

    His contract is too terrible. It's probably one of the worst in the league right now, what with him getting 20+ million over the next 4 years...

    HELL no. Ruins salary cap space FOREVER. Moves like this are what KILL teams' prospects...

    He got 4 years 80 left? Sheesh. Yea thats too much for him. 2 yrs 40 woulda been doable imo tho. He would light it up in this O tho

    Yeah he's got 40 years and a backloaded 80 million left (he's owed 22.3 million in 2013-2014). What makes it rough is that there's a player option in his 3rd year, but with the money he's making I doubt he's going to pass up the player option, so if you trade for him you're basically stuck with his salary for the next 4 years (and it starts at 17.7 million and just keeps going up to 22.3 million)

    So yeah. No Gilbert. Hell no.

    Yea Agent Zero signed a 6 year 111 million dollar contract 2 years ago. Theres a lot of years and money left on the contract. Not only has he been a headcase but he has not produced as much as he used to before his knee injuries.


    So no thanks to Gil.

    He was once looked to as a franchise player but can't be counted on for that any more. We'll see how his wizards do this year. I don't expect that he'll look like a 20 mill a year player at the end of this season.

    Arenas believe it or not, can easily fit on this team.

    He is a jokester, so much so that he thought it was "funny" to bring a gun to work one day...(who knows maybe he brought it everyday). Being a jokester he will be the smaller turiaf. He has a personaility that would actually be accpeted and liked in NY. He is just the guy to laugh at or with 24/7 to bring chemsitry to an even greater level. Chemsitry=Success

    He still has game. His contract is steep and long but He is good. He scores, he dishes, he plays defense, he is really smart on the court-off is another story. He is clutch as anybody when he gets his outside shot going.

    Arenas can change an entire game single handedly. No one can say no to this one, this guy is so well known because of his ability to diminate basketball games. Maybe Arenas is Marbury part 2 but no one questioned Marbury's skills and talent, it was his attitude and personaility.

    Gilbert is not the same personality as Marbury. He is dumb in his own way but can dominate games nonetheless. He is sorry for what he did, maybe he isnt so serious about being sorry but he knows he cant be that dumb again or he is done.

    Imagine this lineup

    Felton
    Arenas
    Melo
    Amare
    Turiaf

    Next year

    This team would destroy people, screw the Heat, they are not stopping this onslaught. The speed, quickness, clutch shooting, pure skill, good IQ, decently defended, and fast court Knick team just needs to establish a pick and roll, then we will be really good adn with amazing players.

    Im for Arenas being a Knick one day.

    You make valid points but do you really want to pay him 20 mil a year ..... also how do you see Melo and Gilbert. That can't happen with a cap, can it. You'd have then 3 players making 20+ million a year, plus what we have already. Unless its possible with Curry's expiring contract
