Bucks/ Knicks

To MIL - Vonleh

To NYK - Wood, 2020 2nd (via Washington)

Bucks are said to be looking for a front court piece before Thursday. Vonleh is a nice fit and quality piece for the balance of the season.

Wood is expiring, and the Knicks get a decent 2nd, which is about what Vonleh is worth.

Take out Wood, and put in Maker!


2.) 05 Feb 2019 02:41:56
Sixers will give us 1st for Vonleh.


3.) 05 Feb 2019 04:14:52
Firstly, shizzee, I am also a Knicks fan.

Secondly, as good of a season as Noah has had, he’s still a rotation player on an expiring deal. Think it will be hard to find anyone willling to give up a first for him.

Knicks/ Sixers

To NYK - Chandler, Muscala, 2019 2nd via SAC, 2021 2nd back (originally Knicks)

To PHI - Matthews, Vonleh

Knicks keep cap space and pick up a couple of 2nds.

Philly gets much needed shooting and an backup big man upgrade.

Matthews can't be traded with another player in any trades.


2.) 03 Feb 2019 05:43:01
My bad, I knew that.


3.) 03 Feb 2019 06:12:04
Would be a pretty good deal if he could tho.

Three team deal

To HOU - Matthews

To ATL - Knight, Chriss, 2019 1st from Houston

To NYK - Lin, J. Anderson 2021 2nd from Houston

Houston is looking for a 3 and D wing. Instead of potentially being tied to Bazemore’s large salary next year, they ease their cap hit for 2020 by moving Knight and get an expiring but very productive Matthews.

Hawks take on Knight’s salary, but get the 1st they were looking for.

Knicks keep cap flexibility and add a small asset in the future 2nd.

Seems easier to do a Lin for Knight + 1st rounder deal than bringing Houston into it.


2.) 03 Feb 2019 05:44:19
Houston is looking for 3 and D, not another PG like Lin. That’s why the Knicks are involved.

Knicks/ Magic

To NYK - Grant, Martin, 2019 2nd (via BRO), 2021 2nd

To ORL - Ntilikina

Knicks clear an additional $5M in cap space this summer and move a guy clearly no longer being considered for lead guard of the future with DSJ around. The picks, while hard to only take 2 seconds for a former top 10 pick, speaks to Frank’s current market value.

Magic need a PG, and take a buy low shot that Frank figures out his game. Even if he does not become the starting lead guard, giving up a couple of 2nd’s for a quality multiple position defender is not a bad deal.

Mudiay for Grant 2nd

Save frank for Davis package

Wizards get Ntilikina Robinson Moore Hill 32
Suns get Wall
Knicks get Davis.
Pelicans get DSJ Knox Trier dotson
Ny 2020 22 Dal 2021 23 1st.


2.) 03 Feb 2019 05:11:31
You do realize that this leaves the Knicks with like 6 roster players and absolutely no depth next year shizzee.


3.) 03 Feb 2019 05:35:53
Why trade for Mudiay when Orlando can just sign him in the offseason after the Knicks blow their load on top tier FAs?


4.) 03 Feb 2019 14:52:14
Shizzee nobody wants Frank. The AD package would be Knox, dsj, Robinson two firsts unprotected.

Knicks/ Kings

To NYK - Randolph, Koufos, 2019 2nd (via MIN or LAL)

To SAC - Matthews

Knicks and Kings finally hook up on a deal, but it’s Matthews instead of Kanter.

Kings are known to be looking for another shooter on the wing, which Matthews gives them. Knicks maintain cap space and add another pick in the 40-48 range.

Give them Jordan I would resign Mathews.


2.) 03 Feb 2019 05:12:23
You can always sign him again in the offseason, and I don’t think they’ll want Jordan.


3.) 03 Feb 2019 14:51:50
We really don't want neither and Matthews will want to be bought out so he can join Houston/ Lakers (after AD trade) / Warriors.

Realistic Knicks FA targets

I try to be and think I am a realistic Knicks fan. As much as people talk about the lure of the Big Apple, look at the Knicks recent FA track record. It's full of overpaying for old, injury prone or questionable character talent. The LeBron's of the NBA are not signing with us, at least not in the immediate future.

As such, here are the five most reasonable FA targets I believe the Knicks could get, and would be good fits:

5) Goran Dragic - I'm only putting him on this list because he named New York as one of his preferred destinations. I'm pretty sure he'll resign in Miami, but should he not, the Knicks have a shot at him.

4) Thad Young - I've always liked Young, he brings a lot of good things to the table that the Knicks could use. He can play and defend multiple positions well and brings a great work ethic. Knicks don't defend and unfortunately don't hustle much either. He's still young (no pun intended) at 26, and you're not going to have to break the bank to get him ($9-$10M per).

Aaron Afflalo- The guard equivalent of Thad Young with the addition of being a good corner 3 point shooter, which is big in the triangle. $10M per guy as well.

2) Patrick Beverley - Great value addition who plays hard nose D and fits better as a triangle PF than a traditional one. If Dragic is available, throw Beverley off this list, if not, I would rather have Pat at $7M than Reggie Jackson at $14M.

1) Tobias Harris - Most people would have expected Marc Gasol as the #1 non Dragic target, but:

A) why spend max money on him if you can pick Okafor
B) He most likely stays in Memphis, and if not, goes to San Antonio

Harris isn't the defensive player that the others above are, but he's a good mid and long range shooter for a bigger guy, hustles, and most importantly he's from New York and has suggested that going home would be great. $12M should get close to landing him.

Phil has said he would be more inclined to sign mid-level FA's this offseason, and if Beverley is a guy the Knick sign, they still could sign two more of Young/Afflalo/Harris and stay just under the cap without other moves. Assuming filling needs, let's go with Harris and Afflalo, which would give the Knicks a potential 2015-16 starting lineup of:

PG - Beverley
SG - Afflalo
SF - Melo
PF - Harris
C - Okafor

Championship contender, not yet, but 15-16 would be a much better year. With no first round pick in 16, might as well be better anyways!

I don’t like Vucevic as a target for them unless they’re letting WCS walk and committing to making one of Bagley or Giles a PF long term. Yes, I know both are/ have played the PF position this year, but I feel like both would be better served at the 5.

The deal isn’t bad, but this looks like the apparent pieces that were in the deal pitched before the deadline that one of the teams passed on.

He can’t leave for C’s, they don’t have the space. Would have to request S&T. Don’t see him wanting Boston as his destination.

LBJ is not following anyone to a team at this point, they either come to him or he has three more years like this in LA. This is just dumb.

What are you talking about here?

Are you suggesting that the Pels buyout Davis now on a nudge, nudge, wink, wink agreement with the Lakers that they receive the players/ picks package at the draft for a second?

Do you think the league may have a little issue with this one? Allowing this to happen would literally be the end of the NBA.

I’ll give you credit for at least acknowledging that this is delusional, but you stopped short of the correct answers of illegal and sport ruining.
