    Default Knicks after Arroyo/Dooling

    Both are expiring contracts; Arroyo can give you a lot of passing and experience, Dooling can give you a lot of defense and scoring.

    February 21, 2008 -- PHILADELPHIA - Isiah Thomas' top priority entering today's 3 p.m. trade deadline was adding a playmaking point-guard to their point-guard-depleted roster. That need was underscored last night as the Knicks New York Knicks committed 25 turnovers in a 124-84 blowout loss to the Sixers.

    A league source told The Post the Knicks and Orlando discussed trades in recent days involving their two backup point guards, Carlos Arroyo and Keyon Dooling, but were in a stalemate. Arroyo is a prototype European passing point guard, a 28-year-old from Puerto Rico who has been in and out of the Magic's rotation.

    Arroyo and Dooling each make roughly $4 million and own expiring contracts. But the Knicks didn't want to part with young players such as rookie Wilson Chandler Wilson Chandler , and neither team wanted to add payroll.

    Orlando, with its glut of point guards, will not have the money to re-sign both as free agents following starter Jameer Nelson's contract extension.

    With Stephon Marbury Stephon Marbury potentially done as a Knick, Thomas realizes a playmaker is needed, and he missed out on Michael Bibby.

    "They feel they have a hole at the point guard," one league general manager said.

    Seattle point guard Luke Ridnour also is available. Ron Artest and Vince Carter are longtime swingman targets.

    I would do

    Successful Trade Scenario
    Congratulations on a successful trade.

    Due to New York and Orlando being over the cap, the 25% trade rule is invoked. New York and Orlando had to be no more than 125% plus $100,000 of the salary given out for the trade to be accepted, which did happen here. This trade satisfies the provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

    New York Knicks trade
    Jamal Crawford
    Ared Efferies

    Orlando Magic trade
    Carlos Arroyo
    Keyon Dooling
    Pat Garrity

    Why for Orlando?: Crawford can play back up PG/SG for Orlando and gives them another scoring threat from the perimeter since Nelson is inconsistent. Ared can give him them defense and more size and versatility.

    Why for New York?: Knicks drop their ugliest contracts in Crawford and Ared. We get 3 expiring contracts and two serviceable players. The only ugly contracts we'll have left is Randolph, James, Curry, and Q-Rich. 4 is better than 6, right?

    Orlando Magic
    PG - Nelson/Crawford
    SG - Evans/Bogans
    SF - Turkoglu/Cook
    F - Lewis/Augustine
    C - Howard/Foyle

    We could probably optimize the team and do this deal also

    New York Knicks trade
    Eddy Curry

    Miami Heat trade
    Ricky Davis
    Smush Parker


    Miami needs a center to play next to Haslem
    New York needs to get rid of Curry and get an expiring; Davis is a serviceable SG also.

    Miami Heat

    PG - Williams/Quinn
    SG - Wade/Cook
    SF - Marion/Wright
    PF - Haslem/Alexander
    C - Curry/Blount

    Last trade I would do before the dead line

    Chicago Bull**** trades

    Wallace(2 years left

    New York Knicks trade

    Why for Chicago? They need scoring in the post badly, They already have defensive bigs in Noah and Thomas, Wallace is useless there. They get a young piece in Chandler and guard/foward depth with Richardson.

    Why for New York?
    Wallace is still an excellent defender and we desperately need a shot blocker. Smith is an expiring and a servicable player.

    Chicago Bull****

    PG - Hinrich/Duhon
    SG - Gordon/Richardson
    SF - Deng/Nicioni
    PF - Randolph/Thomas
    C - Noah/Gray

    the NEW New York Knicks
    PG - Arroyo/Robinson
    SG - Davis/Dooling/Parker
    SF - Balkman/Garrity
    PF - Lee/Smith
    C - Wallace/Morris

    We'll run the offense through Lee and Davis...both capable of 20 ppg a night, we'll play rugged defense every night and have a more cap room within the future.
