Stat for Gasol Straight up
STAT was offered to Golden State they wanted no part of him
These are the five teams that might take a chance:
New Orleans Hornets
These teams will have the cap space available to make a move, while we can find some role players in return...
I like the Kings, could possibly offer Landry or Lin in a sign & trade along with Stat and acquire a player like RFA PF/C Jason Thompson which would fit with Melo & Stat... But there are options available out there, just need to find the right situation...
We'd have to pair Stoudemire with Chandler or Lin to move him
Stoudemire/Lin for Eric Gordon, Carl Landry and Jarrett Jack
Ok I looked it up and that trade wasn't about Amare being bad it was just good business. Amare was an expiring and the suns wanted steph curry (who at the time was healthy and just beginning his rookie contract).
Anyhow how many teams have said "we're making changes this off season" damn near all of them. Amare can be traded for something decent it's just the Knicks FO won't cause Dolan is not going to admit his plan for the knicks is flawed.
Also quick side note that people in here might find knowledgeable. As a pass time I like to play investopedia stock game because my job doesn't block the site (nor this forum thankfully). I bought the mock MSG stock the day Amare said he was going to join the Knicks 2 summers ago because I knew it was going to go up. Since then the price of the stock rose $17. That's why James Dolan doesn't give a f**k if the Knicks win or lose, either way he is making money. All he needs them to do is make the playoffs.

i would hope the Knicks try to UNLOAD Stat for ANYONE, just to get his salary off the books,
and free up space to sign complementary players for Lin, Melo, Chandler, Shump. I don't think Knicks
will get any solid players for him, as he's no longer a solid player himself. with any luck, Grunworld
will be able to pawn STAT off for a few players, and trade Knicks back into a non-salary cap situation.
IMHO, that's the best Knicks can do with STAT at this point.
As i've said before, he's just. not. worth. 20+Million. year.
before Melo, maybe. now... not.
who said STAT for Gasol...? RU HIGH? these are the trade ideas that just come straight out of someone's assholio.
but then again, what can you expect from a trade thread? SMMFH
Again I wrote previously the teams that will have the cap space to make this kind of move...
Then there is the MDA option: wait for D'Antoni to get a Head Coaching job and dangle Stat in front of him in a package deal trade and hope for the best...
Obviously we are better with those two in the lineup but it's laughable that people bash Amare for not having post skills or the ability to mesh well with Chandler and Melo when the Knicks FO knew very well that to maximise his effectiveness he needs to be the primary pnr beneficiary.
GTFO at people who say his contract is becoming the next Rashard Lewis, he is like that because of the moves we made. Put him back as the focal point of the offense with spacing and he would put up the same performances as last year.
Amar'e has a ton of game left if he will play in the right situation.
But if he stays here, you can expect a lot of hate going his way because he will not look any prettier next season.
We couldn't unload Amare for a stale bag of Cheetos to even the most retarded GMs in this league.
His salary, fragility, defense (and general lack of awareness), and amount of bull**** that comes out of his mouth rank at the absolute gutter of the league.
Golden State Front office: *answers phone* Hello?
Knicks Front Office: Oh hey, we're interested in trading Amar'e Sto-
Golden State Front office: Hahahahahahahahahahaha *click*
Both players are soft on defense but at least Gasol is bigger and rebounds. I can also live with Pau Gasol as a backup center but Amare can not play center.
Lakers lineup of
pretty good and sessions/Kobe would feed Amare.
But again this is wishful thinking
"The Knicks are back" - Amare
