Latest New York Knicks Trade Rumors

01 Feb 2015 13:44:05
Thunder should now be more concerned with convincing KD to stay AND bracing for life after KD and Westbrook. Everyone is all about trading Jackson and Perk for a low post scorer. Think bigger.

Philly gets Westbrook, nick young, Jeremy lamb, grant jerrett

Lakers get Reggie Jackson (s&t), Hollis Thompson, jerami grant

Okc gets Jason Richardson, LR mbah a moute, nerlens Noel, MCW, Julius randle, Jordan clarkson

Philly gives up a lot but retains some pieces around Westbrook and can add more. Westbrook and KD are both great but don't mesh great. Plus, Westbrook out east is better for the league and better for Westbrook. They get him at least two years after this. He's a top 10 talent and is well worth it.

Lakers are one of those teams that would love to have Reggie Jackson but would love it more to keep him away from New York. They retain cap room for next season but add a starting point for the present and future. Done deal.

Thunder reload talent wise. They can send a couple guys in the dleague or make some cuts if necessary. This is about setting up a bigger move. They miss the playoffs but go all in on signing lamarcus Aldridge. "But he won't leave Portland!" Maybe he wold to play with KD and all that young talent. Next, they look to flip either Adams or Ibaka for depth. I think Adams would be more tradeable. Then Thunder have the true low post threat they need and a Texas alum and a dirth of young talent to make a championship push and resign KD to a max deal.

Outlandish, risky, non-Presti move.

Lakers hang up quick

I love westook, and am a huge Sixer fan, but Noel, MCW, and Grant are a lot of pieces to give up. Sixers say NO, draft DAngelo Russell, and stick to the Hinkie rebuild plan.

The Lakers won't give up Randle.

Lakers, New York

Lakers get Carmelo Anthony, Jose Calderon
***West gets even deeper next year. Melo can be the next high-profile Laker. And, he makes LA way more attractive to free agents here on. Plus, you get a pass first point who can shoot. Calderon is a great point option on a team with Melo and Kobe.

Knicks get Jordan Hill, Steve Nash, Jeremy Lin, Julius Randle, Wesley Johnson, 2015 first round pick
***Since being drafted by the Knicks, Jordan Hill has finally hit his stride. He's on a short contract and can be a good option for the Knicks. They also get an additional $19M in expiring money. Plus, they get two young guys who could develop into stars: Randle and that super valuable lottery pick this year. Knicks can build around young talent and through the draft.

still think if Melo willing to allow a trade to Orlando this best move for NY. Still leave Orlando pieces that fit well with Melo and still have cap space to add Kevin Love to roster


Melo Early Larkin Hardaway
for
A.Gordon Oladipo Payton Harris (s&t) 4yr 40mil 52nd pick

Best team in Southeast 66mil payroll
Mudiay-5th/Ridnour/Larkin
Fournier/Gordon/Marble
Melo/Hardaway/Early
Love/Frye/Nicholson
Vucevic/O'Quinn/Dedmon

Frye perfect compliment to Melo while Vucevic plays inside. Mudiay is next blur PG = Wall Rose Westbrook style of attacking

Knicks
Marc Gasol maxed out Paul Milsap 4yr 60 mil
re/sign Galloway Amundson Ish and Stuckey Thanasis for minimum

Best team in Atlantic 70 mil payroll
Calderon/Payton/Ish
Oladipo/Galloway/Stuckey
Harris/Harkless/Thanasis
Millsap/Gordon/Amundson
Gasol/Okafor-1st/Upshaw-52nd

shizzee75


1. This move would require several events that would be extremely unlikely together (Magic get a high enough pick, Harris doesn't grab someone's offer, Love guaranteeing he would sign with the Magic)

2. The trade is the opposite of what the Magic have been trying to do build a young, defensive team from the bottom up).

3. I doubt Hennigan would trade away 4 young promising players for one 2nd tier star on the backside of his career.

4. Neither Melo or Love has shown the ability to be the leader of a contender. If Melo had this ability, the Knicks would be much better than they are now.

01 Feb 2015 00:08:18
Hardaway Larkin Early compensate for trading away young talent. None of those players will ever be good as Melo. Phil Jackson screwed the Knicks with Chandler trade. Amare is retired already earning 24 mil. Love and Melo are not best defensive players. But they do enough if the have someone tough in the middle and tough up top. Knicks defense at the 2 most important position PG and Center. Mudiay is blur. Open shots for Love and Melo.

shizzee


Since the Magic would be trading away most of their young assets for this, the issue becomes if this trade would turn them into a legitimage title contender. I just don't see the talent being sufficient to turn this into a true contender. They'll probably make a run or 2 thanks to being in the terrible East.

3 or 4 years down the road they'll be in complete rebuild mode again while the Knicks have a ton of talent entering their prime.

It seems like you're desperate to skip the rebuild process. There's no reason for the Magic to become a treadmill team so they can help you out.

So let's just say. The Knicks really want Reggie Jackson, Durant says this week he'd leave OKC for NY in order to play with Carmelo, and both teams could use a major shakeup. Hmmm.

Knicks get Serge Ibaka, Kendrick Perkins, Reggie Jackson (s&t)
***Expiring money, two stars under contract, flexibility for the summer retained.

Thunder get Melo, Pablo Prigioni, Cole Aldrich
***More offensive firepower than any team in the league (yes, it's true), pass first point, depth at C. If Durant leaves, you still have Melo.

ChurchPugh


Yeah because New York wants to lose their opportunity to get Durant

jbbaby


Knicks wouldn't do that. Jackson is a free agent this year and Durant next year. Melo is under contract for 5 years (I think). Why trade Melo to get 2 guys you can sign over the next 2 years?

Knicks - Pistons

Knicks trade Prigioni

Pistons trade Datome, 2015 second round pick (top 44 protected, if pick is outside top #44 then Pistons obligation to Knicks will be extinguished)

Pistons need another PG with Jennings done for the year.

Knicks just look to get anything they can for Prigioni so a swap of expiring contracts and a second round pick only if the Pistons make the playoffs.

Wizfan2


I've always liked this trade as soon as Jennings went down. Not sure why it hasn't happened. Giving the pick has always been the issue I assume. but protecting it should work for both teams.

Yeah even if the Pistons miss the playoffs oh well. The Knicks don't add any long term salary.

Raptors - Nuggets - Lakers

Raptors trade Fields, Hayes, Nogueira, 2015 first round pick, Knicks 2016 first round pick

Raptors get Chandler, Afflalo, Faried

Nuggets trade Chandler, Affalo, Faried

Nuggets get Nash, Fields, Hansbrough, Raptors 2015 first round pick, Knicks 2016 first round pick, Lakers 2019 second round pick

Lakers trade Nash, 2019 second round pick

Lakers get Nogueria

Raptors depth and defense has struggled of late. Getting Faried, Afflalo, and Chandler will provide energy and defense to a team that is struggling. The trade also makes the team 12 quality players deep.

Lowery/Vasquez/Williams
DeRozan/Afflalo
Ross/Chandler
Faried/Johnson/Patterson
Valanciunas/Hayes

Nuggets are blowing things up and by swapping out three players for all expiring contracts and two first round picks is a solid return for a rebuilding team.

Lakers swap out Nash expiring deal and way down the road second round pick for the former first round prospect who can't get any PT. Right now the Lakers have nothing better to do then lose games and giving PT to developing players like Clarkson and now Nogueria.

Magic - Rockets - Blazers

Magic trade Frye, Ben Gordon, Harkless

Magic get Shved (waived), Capela, Wright, Robinson, Blazers 2015 first round pick, Knicks 2015 second pick (from Rockets)

Rockets trade Shved, Terry, Capela, Jones, Knicks 2015 second round pick

Rockets get Frye, Ben Gordon

Blazers trade Robinson, Wright, 2015 first round pick

Blazers get Terry, Jones, Harkless

Magic regret the signings of Frye and Gordon. Harkless isn't getting any PT so by swapping out the three of them the Magic net themselves three expiring contracts, a prospect, and two picks in the #27-33 range. Not a bad overhaul for three players the team doesn't want.

Rockets add two veteran shooters to their team providing more space for Harden and Howard to work. While neither is even an ok defender, with Howard and Ariza playing great defense, Frye and Gordon just need to shoot.

Blazers need to find a better back up to Aldridge incase his hand injury gets worse. Jones is a Portland native who along with Terry and the underrated Harkless would provide an upgrade to a weak Blazers bench. Pushing the Blazers in the class with the Warriors.

Lillard/Blake
Matthews/Terry
Batum/Harkless
Aldridge/Jones
Lopez/Kaman

Wizfan2


27 Jan 2015 21:00:31
I feel like this could be simplified by removing Houston. Frye would fit better than jones, and I don't care about terry. Do robinson, wright, and a first for frye and harkless. You could throw in barton and Gordon if orlando is desperate to unload Gordon.

Benjamin66


Frye contract is over priced for the Blazers who need money to sign Aldridge, Matthews, Lillard, and Lopez long term. Jones also provides more offensively in terms of ball handling and driving ability than Frye. Plus Jones is a better defender than Frye.

27 Jan 2015 16:50:08
First off, yes, I understand that Melo has a no-trade clause. I also understand that he most likely wouldn't want to go to Philly. by himself. But.

Philly has all the makings of a team ready to acquire big names and big money. They have cap space, young assets at key positions, picks, they're in the East, they have a GM shown to make moves, a stud overseas, and a history of success.

Knicks get Jason Richardson, L. R. Mbah a Moute, Tony Wroten Jr, Nerlens Noel, Michael Carter Williams, Corey Jefferson
***Expiring money, plenty of assets. Noel and MCW are definite building blocks and guys you can build around. They'll have the cap room this summer to add in great pieces plus high draft picks.

Nets get Joel Embiid, Andrei Kirilenko, Furkan Aldemir, Travis Wear
***Nets are shopping their big names, big contracts. The easiest to move will be Brook Lopez, but I like this deal for the Nets. Not only do they rid themselves of a huge contract, but they also replace that big contract with a guy with ENORMOUS potential. And, they can be patient with Embiid. In the interim, they have Plumlee. Teams like the Thunder can offer an expiring deal (Perk and parts), but where else can they add a potential franchise big for cheap?

Sixers get Carmelo Anthony, Brook Lopez, Jose Calderon, Jerome Jordan, Cleanthony Early
***I know, dropping MCW, Noel, Embiid, Mbah a Moute, Wroten, etc is a lot. But, they other pieces they give up? Richardson, Kirilenko, Aldemir, and even Embiid, are either not playing this year or are not long-term solutions. Plus, MCW has been rumored to be on the block. Add in the fact that the draft has players at positions of need that can rebuild depth on their roster. Give it one year. In one year, the Sixers could make the playoffs. In two years? They could contend in the East.

ChurchPugh


27 Jan 2015 18:51:00
Terrible. I really don't know what's worse MCW and Noel for Carmelo or Embiid for Lopez. Oh wait, I do, definitely Embiid for Lopez.

Boston plans

BOS-OKC

BOS get Kendrick Perkins exp , Reggie Jackson and Andre Roberson + 2nd rd pick
OKC get Avery Bradley and Brandon Bass

2015 off season moves
priority : resign Reggie Jackson 4yr/52mil deal - he is better than Smart , he is proven that could be something special when he has his own team

try a trade : send Marcus Smart , Gerald Wallace and the 8th pick to Nyk for the Knicks pick and Tim Hardaway Jr

okay , Knicks get their PG here on this trade , swallowing the last year of Wallace's contract and still get a high pick

- Celtics acquire a higher draft pick let's say 3rd , draft Karl Towns to start at center position for them

- 21st pick select Terian Grant (PG)

signings
Tobias Harris (4yr/56mil) - he and Jackson will be the new face of the Celtics for years to come
sign couple of vets like for Pg and Sf position


Pg : Reggie Jackson , Terian Grant , Fa
Sg : Evan Turner , Tim Hardaway Jr
Sf : Tobias Harris , James Young , Fa
Pf : Jared Sullinger , Kelly Olynyk
Ce : Karl Towns , Tyler Zeller

- this team will make difference for years to come

Thunder get Aaron Afflalo, JJ Hickson, Jameer Nelson, and Quincy Acy
- They aquire the perfect starting 2 guard for their team and 3 key 2nd unit guys to help them win now

Nuggets get Tim Hardaway Jr, Pablo Prigioni, Nick Collison exp, and Kendrick Perkins exp
- they don't get as much talent back as they give away but they get a very promising wing player in Hardaway and mainly they dump a lot of salary to help them rebuild

Knicks get Reggie Jackson and Jeremy Lamb
- Knicks pick up their PG of the future and a young wing scorer with potential

jbbaby


I like Afflalo and Hickson going to the Thunder.

But, as I mentioned on another post, the Knicks like Hardaway too much to trade him. I would be completely shocked if they give up one of the best draft picks they have made in the past decade. Jackson is a free agent who the Thunder won't be able to afford and New York will have tons of cap space to go get Jackson.

kcku


27 Jan 2015 10:06:21
Hardaway is over rated and can't play defense. Afflalo Hickson Robinson or hardaway Bargnani Larkin, than Calderón Prigioni for terry shved

shizzee


If they were truly concerned about defense they would have kept Shumpert and traded Hardaway. Hardaway has tons of potential and at 22 years old he has plenty of time to learn. Phil and Fisher will be working with him this offseason to help him get better.

27 Jan 2015 02:22:37
Knicks - Rockets - Blazers

Knicks trade Calderon, Prigioni, Hardaway Jr

Knicks get Shved, Robinson, Claver, own 2015 second round pick (from previous trade with Rockets)

Rockets trade Shved, Terry, Jones, Knicks 2015 second round pick

Rockets get Calderon, Prigioni, Hardaway Jr, Blazers 2015 first round pick

Blazers trade Robinson, Claver, 2015 first round pick

Blazers get Terry, Jones

Knicks move out the contract of Prigioni and Calderon, allowing them enough cap room this summer to sign two max players, the cost to do so was Hardaway Jr. However in return the Knicks get all expiring contracts and their own second round pick back (likely to be #31-33) so basically getting a late first round pick in return.

Rockets could use an upgrade at back up point guard and while taking back Calderon and his remaining three years isn't ideal bringing in a late first round pick (from Blazers) and Hardaway Jr softens the blow.

Blazers swap out a pair of bench players and their first round pick to acquire a savvy vet (Terry) and Portland native (Jones) to boost their bench for a deep playoff run.

Wizfan2


Hardaway is probably one of the Knicks best players they drafted in a while. They wouldn't trade him, unless it's for a superstar

Pistons get Calderon
Knicks get Datome, Butler

ironclaw


I could see this happening. Calderon has shown that he can hold his own in this league. Butler is $3mil less per year than Calderon and Datome is a free agent at the end of the year. Creates cap space, which the Knicks are trying to do and gets Detroit a PG.

kcku


Calderon is nice but not that much of an upgrade. Butler is the locker room leader of this team I don't see him going anywhere at this time.

That could easily happen if DET still wants to try and get that 8 seed. Dinwiddie is not ready to play pg and DET only takes 1 more year at $1.7mm. Knicks get an expiring, don't see why it wouldn't happen.

26 Jan 2015 18:32:45
Pizza- Martin is not a great defender I agree with you, but he is not terrible I see him as a average below average, he will never guard the best player but he will hold his own, also he puts up 20PPG! the real question is why the f$&@ would the Timberwolves do it the could get a mid to late first for Martin alone, Calderon is barely worth a 2nd

Pacers - Wizards - Rockets

Pacers trade Miles
Pacers get Shved, Gooden, Wizards 2015 first round pick

Wizards trade Gooden, Blair, Temple, 2015 first round pick
Wizards get Miles, Knicks 2015 second round pick (from Rockets)

Rockets get Blair, Temple
Rockets trade Shved, Knicks 2015 second round pick

Pacers should look to move veterans in order to rebuild with youth around PG13 when he come back healthy next year. Swapping out Miles for a pair of expiring contracts and a first round pick is a good return for a team rebuilding.

Wizards could use some more shooting off the bench, with all due respect to Rasual Butler, he shouldn't be counted on for the 22MPG he's getting. Miles will provide a 3-and-D player they have lacked since Ariza has left. The only really piece the Wizards are moving out is their first round pick, however they get a high second round pick from the Rockets in the deal.

Rockets need to add a true center behind Howard as he keeps on getting hurt. Bringing back Blair and Temple (who provides defense and length) will increase the many tools the Rockets have on their bench.

Wizfan2



 

 

26 Jan 2015 02:45:10
Thunder - Nets - Knicks - Wolves

Thunder trade Perkins, Jackson, Lamb, McGary, Jerrett

Thunder get Lopez, Williams, Anderson, Acy

Nets trade Lopez, Anderson

Nets get Young, Lamb, Smith

Knicks trade Calderon, Acy, Smith, 2018 first round pick (top 5 protected till 2020 then becomes 2020 and 2021 second round picks)

Knicks get Jackson, Perkins

Wolves trade Young, Williams

Wolves get Calderon, McGary, Jerrett, Knicks 2018 first round pick

Thunder unload the log jam at SG and get a low post scorer. By moving out Jackson (who will be trade with Waiters added) it removed the Thunder from giving up a first round pick in a deal.

Nets reportedly want Young in any trade for Lopez (don't ask me why?) so the Nets swap out Lopez (no longer their future at center) for Young and a prospect (Lamb).

Wolves swap out Young and Williams (two veterans who won't be with the team next year) for McGary and a first round pick. The downside for this is they have to take back Calderon and his remaining three years on his deal. However a Rubio/Calderon duo at point guard would make the Wolves a must watch team.

Now why would the Knicks give up a future first round pick to get Jackson now instead of just over paying him in free agency? Two reasons. 1) moving out Calderon in the trade give the Knicks enough cap space to sign two max players in the offseason. 2) by having Jackson's bird rights, they can wait to resign him using his bird rights after signing potentially two max players. While Jackson would be a decent third option on a team, as a forth option behind a big three would bolt the Knicks back to the playoffs in one season. It is a risky move to make but a risk Phil Jackson might make.

Wolves - Rockets - Magic

Wolves trade Martin, Williams

Wolves get Terry (waived), Capela, Pelicans 2015 first round pick (from Rockets), Magic 2016 second round pick (top 55 protected)

Rockets trade Terry, Capela, Shved, Pelicans 2015 first round pick, Knicks 2015 second round pick

Rockets get Martin, Williams

Magic trade 2016 second round pick (top 55 protected)

Magic get Shved (waived), Knicks 2015 second round pick (from Rockets)

Wolves move out two veteran players for the Pelicans likely lottery pick and the Rockets first round selection last year (Capela).

Rockets get themselves two veteran players who can shoot and score in bunches off the bench, pushing them back towards the Warriors at the top of the west.

Magic by rule must send something out in the trade so they give up a highly protected (and never to be claimed) second round pick. Magic get the Knicks second round pick (likely to be pick #31-33) as compensation for paying the rest of Shved's contract.

Knicks 2nd round pick belongs to the Rockets. Either way bad trade for OKC

Wizfan2


Knicks like Hardaway too much to trade him. Jackson is a free agent (after the season) and most likely looking for a contract that OKC can't afford. Knicks can make a push to get Jackson in free agency, so why trade a player they love in Hardaway?
