analysing the randolph trade
It has been 13 games long enough to know whether we won or lost this trade.
Steve Francis (bought out)
Channing Frye - 6.1 points, 3.8 rebounds, 0.9 assists expected to earn about 12 million for three years
Dan Dickau (gone)
Fred Jones - 4 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists. 3.3 million for 1 year
Zach Randolph - 18.6 points, 12.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists 60 million over 4 years
Zach Randolph is obviously doing the best out of the trade. I feel he is a better version of eddy curry - one that rebounds. I feel Isiah actually did well on this trade, by getting rid of francis.
Randolph solid, but Turnover prone.
Knicks made out in trade. I like frye, but he's not the stud Zach is. Francis was terrible. I won't say zach is better then curry all around, curry has really cut down on turnovers and is scoring almost at will. He's good. Just the defense, which we've see glimpses of. Does need to rebound. This team would turn a corner if he played good defense all the time. The other big step is figuring out how to get crawford and marbury to perform well together.
Curry 3rd 4th option? huh?
R you kidding? curry has been an offensive machine, has turned it over much less then zach and converts more shots to points. I also think they aren't as bad as you think together. Curry and zach should be #1 and 2. The hotter hand getting the ball more. Please don't tell me you'd rather crawford be infront of curry? So how would you order your offensive options.
