I am hoping against hope that Donnie does not strike out with the Big boys, but if he does then Wilson Chandler has got to go.
If Donnie strikes out then his only alternative is to build around Gallo. Now if Bosh leaves Toronto and we do not get him, Brian Colangelo might decide to cut some costs namely Andrea Bargnani. Wil Chan would be attractive, for the following reasons, The only reason they signed Bargnani long term was to entice Bosh to stay, they are unhappy with Hedo, wil Chan is in his walk year and if he plays well they can resign him for less money or package him in a trade for draft picks or other assets, or if he stinks he has effectively removed 10 mil off their cap for the next 4 years. Now While Bargnani is not a Franchise Center and has not lived up to his hype, he is more than serviceable. 17. 2 points 6.2 Rebs and 1.4 Blocks while averaging 35 min a night. Now Bargnani is scheduled to make 8 mil next year so the diff would only add 6 mil to the Knicks cap for 2010-11. If they resign Lee at 10 pull off a trade for Sessions 3.9 mil, Sign Ronnie Brewer 4 mil, sign Tyrus (TT Boy) Thomas 4 mil. That would give you
Sg Brewer/Walker (I like the defense/Offense here, Brewer can straight up guard people.
Sf Gallo/ Brewer/ TTboy
Of Course there is a chance that Bosh could re-sign if he does Bargnani's value goes up to Colangelo and he will not trade him, but if he doesn't there could be a fire sale up north and Donnie should use Wil and see if he can get a 7ft 25 yr old Italian Center who Colangelo likes but is not in love with, to pair with his 22 yr old Italian Small forward who Walsh is in love with.
