    Default Plan B is to get Iguodala or Anderson Varejao/Gibson

    According to Chris Broussard at ESPN;

    While the New York Knicks remain confident in their chances of acquiring Carmelo Anthony this season, they are preparing backup plans in case he winds up in New Jersey or elsewhere.

    After Anthony declared how important signing the three-year, $64.47 million contract extension is to him during last week's visit to Madison Square Garden, the Knicks realized they may have trouble signing him as a free agent next summer.

    More and more, the thinking at Knicks headquarters is that Anthony will sign the extension with some club -- be it New York, New Jersey or whomever -- rather than become a free agent with a lockout looming.

    So if the Knicks can't trade for Anthony by the Feb. 24 trade deadline, they've got two other potential Plan Bs in mind.

    In one, they may go after Philadelphia's Andre Iguodala, who would seem to fit nicely in Mike D'Antoni's system. Eddy Curry's expiring contract and one other player might be enough to pry Iguodala away from the Sixers, though Philadelphia doesn't want to give away its top player in a mere salary dump.

    The Knicks' other scenario would potentially bring Cleveland's proven role players Anderson Varejao and Daniel "Boobie" Gibson to Madison Square Garden. The Knicks are aware of their need for more toughness inside and Varejao would provide that. And Gibson could fill the backup point guard spot the Knicks have been looking to upgrade.


    The Knicks are weighing whether those two options are better than what they could get on next summer's free agent market.

    Of course, Anthony remains the most coveted prize, and the Knicks still believe they can get him. Denver would rather deal with New Jersey, though, since the Nets have more to offer.

    The Nets have several potential trades for Anthony on the table and are merely waiting for Denver to choose one, according to sources. That doesn't mean a deal could be completed immediately; just that the Nets would then begin getting agreements from the various parties involved.

    The Nets have trade scenarios based on two-team deals between them and the Nuggets, as well as three- and four-team deals on the table.

    The two clubs have stayed in periodic contact over the past few months, but haven't spoken since Saturday, according to one source.
    Personally, I prefer Varejao/Boobie. Varejao would solve a ton of our defensive issue and provide a nice amount of toughness while Gibson can be the third PG. Not sure what it would take to get them. Iguodala is overrated in my opinion and I've heard hes a terrible lockerroom influence.

    If we go fer Iggs, Fields or Chandler along w Curry does it.. I think we'd do that.

    Godsn stays. I can't see him being included in any of these backup type trades.

    Not so sure Philly trades Iggy unless they get at least 80cents to the dollar.

    They aren't a bad team, and may very well make a playoff push this year.

    With Jru's unexpected emergence into a quality starting PG on the rise, locking down a Jru/Iggy backcourt as a base isn't a terrible idea.

    They may actually want to trade Turner now. To get a player they can start at forward or center.

    Their bad contract isn't even Iggy. It's Brand, who's playing alright and it's not an unrealistic thought they ride out his contract till he can be trade bait himself, and build while competing now.

    I'd rather target Richardson if we can in off season, and keep assets like Fields. And make a trade for Mayo if anything. AR and a 2nd.

    Bird Right Chandler, the Mayo deal, and signing: Richardson, BigBaby and Kirilienko should be our priorities if Melo fail, while letting Turiaf and Curry and Azzy go.

    Felton-Douglas
    Richardson-Fields
    Gallo-AK47
    BigBaby-Chandler
    STAT-Moz
    6th Mayo
    bench -- Walker, Williams, Ewing Jr, anyone we get through draft

    That team could be a defensive beast, while only improving our offense w needed depth, improved shooting especially with range, a superior big man, and winning veteran leadership.

    The sheer amount of talent and assets we have, which could even be argued is TOO great, would let us consolidate for an upgraded bigtime Center if we wanted, or a PG even.

    Maybe terrible is too strong of a word. He's more of a me first player who blames losses on his team and not himself. He's ****ier than he has the right to be and isn't the guy you'll see cheering on him teammates, but pouting on the sidelines.
    Then again... you should take this all with a grain of salt, because you never really know whats going on behind the scenes.

    I like Iggy cause he's a great defender. Hes not consistent from 3 range, but has a decent pullup in midrange which he relies a bit too much on. His main strength will be in transition where with the Knicks he can create major havoc. I actually think he's a better fit for us than Melo, in that we need a 2 more than a 3 and he'll be less of a strain on our salary cap.

    I'm mixed about him, but would still rather have Varejao for intimidation.

    That is what happen when you put all your eggs in 1 basket! Hopefully Walsh has learned from the LaBron disgrace and has open dialogue with the various teams that are putting quality guys on the block.

    Iggy at 13 million --> 15million is better value and arguably a better fit for this team than Melo at 18million--> 22 million.

    Hope this is plan C or D.

    I hope Donnie (if no Mello) will go for a starting Center like MaGee from Washington or Tyson Chandler from Dallas.

    Then he can go after a SG and Back-up PG. Maybe OJ Mayo from Menphis and then maybe Telfair from Minny.

    Felton/Telfair/Routins
    OJ/Fields/Walker
    Gallo/Williams/Walker
    Amare/Williams
    Magee or T.Chandler/Mozgov

    I left out player's such as AR,Azabuke,Wilson,Turiaf,Mason and TD.

    Chandler- gone at seasons end anyway
    Azabuke- will have most of his salary paid by the league due to injury.
    Turiaf- well every team need a guy like this.... except a Mike D team (no offense)
    AR- potential
    Mason and TD- both good combo guards


    AND THE BEST PART WILL BE....... KEEPING EDDY'S EXPIRING CONTRACT!

    A lot of the ^^ trades are tight. trillion's especially is a really refined three way deal.

    Two things still stick out to me, latter being the most important:

    Iggy not being traded,and if he is it will be for 80cents to the dollar type value. So if we want unique defensive ability from a non big, let's look elsewhere.

    Us not needing a starting C to be brought in. Key word, starting. And the dollars that will invariably come w it.

    STAT plays his best ball as a 5. Or just as effective as at the 4. He's an allstar Center. With the run n gun, SSOL-like offense, there isn't the more rigid hierarchy of positions like in more traditional offenses, too.

    There's a fluidity. Which STAT seizes upon, by being strong enough to hold his own versus legit "centers", but his explosion and finesse unable to be contained by them.

    I agree he needs "help". Help =s a non-starter who can get into the mix when STAT rests, or strategically playing alongside STAT when we want to mix it up w that element and confound/confuse teams.

    In tandem, we want this "center" to be defensive and help bridge the gap in our offensive prowess versus defensive ability. Boost both, but stick to the braes and butter we have.

    **that is the key**

    A traditional, defensive minded starting C on this team would be a relative waste of dollars compared to the output they'd really give.

    We are beating against a brick wall trying to insert some of these guys in as starters w how this team will and is run.

    Starting Cs to be considered do include M.Gasol,bc his offensive style and versatility w finishing, running, and passing, could be injected into the team seamlessly. But even he I am souring on.

    IMO, most cost effective and beneficial overall is a quality "backup" big , defensive, meaty size, versatile. Who won't get big "I'm A Starting A Starting Center" bucks, or big "I'm A Real Certified Backup Center" bucks a la Haywood; a guy who won't hold back our offensive/team game plan, and will just compliment us by providing modest but impactful boosts in defense and keeping STAT fresher, and a nw look to occasionally throw onto teams. I want unequivocal win wins in our offense and defense.

    Big Baby/Glen Davis, eg. Perfect.

    A "center" like this, and a true 1 or 1b scoring option (Melo, eg) and we are mint. If not Melo, we should try to smother teams with athleticism and outside shooting, Mayo, eg, Richardson, eg.

    Believe it or not, you can win by always just outscoring your opponents. Literally.

    Adding offense is no better or worse than adding defense.

    That said, I'd like Iggy. But I'd rather get Mayo on the true cheap to compliment Fields as a tandem.

    Also, if we really want defense, I wouldn't hate us targeting AK47, Kirilienko, in the off season. Just $ I believe. Likely cheaper than Iggy, and just money.

    Kirlienko, Richardson, Mayo, BigBaby.

    theres only one clear possibility of a trade and that would be for Varejao and Gibson.Philly's playing well and making a playoff run,yes they are in the east.Cleveland's going nowhere and needs to start over.

    I dont think this deal fixes our problems either. There is a difference between SIZE and DEFENSE. Just ask Mozgov about that one.While we do need to improve D Varejao is undersized.

    Backup Pg is suppossed 2 b t.doug role,but bringing in Boobie doesn't solve it either.He's more of a off guard who can spot up and shoot though he has shown flashes he can be ok at creating a shot if push came to shove.

    Either way I'd rather just rebuild like normal than build a "Cleveland 2.0" around Amar'e

    I've liked your posts so far but this one I believe is really flawed. First off you contradict yourself talking about the difference between size and defense and in the next sentence call Varejao undersized. The guy is a tenacious defender with quick feet, long arms, heart and hustle. He is a strong rebounder and will run the floor nicely in our system. He fills a big need and is one of the best BIGS possibly attainable. If we can get the guy for minimal loss we need to snatch him up. He is a guy you want to go to war with in the trenches come playoff time.

    Another flaw in your post is asserting that picking up Varejao and a backup PG equals Cleveland 2.0. Filling needs with role players won't effect our core identity other than possibly making us more defensive.

    Your point about Philly is noted and I could see them holding on trying to make a run but do they really think they are winning a chip? I doubt it so I think they would love to unload Iggy's contract and take back a player like Chandler for the rest of the year. After this season they would have options while not sacrificing much this season considering the way Chandler has been playing. Just my two cents.
