    Nyk Logo We should of got Monta Ellis for Lee straight up

    wish we would have trade lee for monta straight up..


    might as well have him than turiaf, randolph and azzy, its only a 3 mil difference in cap space if Turiaf picks up his option

    we dont play defense anyway

    if we had monta.. he would clearly be the second best player on the team...

    felton 7.5
    monta 11
    stat 18.2
    tmoz 2.7
    fields/td/rautins 2.5mil
    Gallo 4 mil

    Thats 46 mil


    about 13 mil in cap.. if we got rid of gallo we could of signed melo in the off season or trade monta and other to denver for him...im sure Denver would of wanted monta with the way things are going now..

    and im sure GS is glad we never accepted that trade offer


    2011 would have been

    felton
    monta
    melo
    amare
    tmoz/ or who else

    with fields, td, etc off the bench


    that would of put us in a better position than we are now

    I think Donnie made the right trade. Golden State didn't even know he'd be doing this good. We traded for defense and the future (Randolph).

    I'd LOVE Monta, but it was a good decision by Walsh.

    yeah.. but i did.. and i got killed for it..

    now GS would probably trade Stephen Curry before Monta.....


    Walsh has been good...but he should of gambled a lil on this one

    Maybe he didn't gamble because of all the cap space we have the next two summers.

    When Does Ellis' contract come up?

    he's got a player option for 2013 which he probaly will op out if his play continues...

    he has one of the better bang for your buck contract in the league


    even if u wanted a CP3 in 2012.. im sure NOH would be willing to listen to offers centered around him on a sign and trade if they losing CP3 and im sure Utah would do the same for D will , etc

    Hmmm, 11 million a year 'till 2013. That's pretty great.

    Maybe his attitude was also a concern for Donnie. He got married over the summer and changed, so he changed pretty quickly.

    Anyway, I fully support Donnie's decision. I have a feeling if he knew he'd play this good he would have gotten him.

    Default Are you kidding me?

    Gallo is a stud and will be an All-Star in 2 years. Have you noticed how much he is starting to drive and getting to the line???

    Ellis is scorer and the Knicks don't need a gunner, especially at 11million. He is very overrated, that is why GS is trying to dump him. We need a guy who can play the PG position and plays tough D as well. In D'Antoni's system you need 2 PG's who can play both ends of floor. He has never had it. Nash was great offensively but huge liability on D. Felton can't do it 30-40 every game on both ends. He is already breaking down w injuries. Same with Amare... They need a low post scorer in the worst way.

    Your focus on Ellis is a waste of time - he is overrated and Knicks aren't looking for another Nate Robinson.
