I have a buddy who wants the Knicks to acquire Javale McGee and Nick Young from the Wizards, and he figured out that it could be done, The wizards sign Young and trade him to the Knicks for Turiaf, Douglas, and Walker. His argument is that because we have Billups we could probably sign someone like TJ Ford as a back up for cheap. He also thinks that Denver may choose not to match an offer for Wilson Chandler so we could do such a deal and get him back using the MLE. Well I did some thinking and based on discussions I have had with you guys I am sure most of you would be in favor of such a move. So I would like to present you with two potential Rosters and ask you guys which one is more likely to win the Eastern Conference.
Roster 1 Starters Back ups Billups Ford Fields Young Anthony Chandler (Wil) MLE Amare Shawne McGee Jerome Jordan?
Multi year deals for Chandler and Young no cap space in 2012
Roster 2 Billups Douglas Fields Redd Anthony Grant Hill Amare Shawne K. Brown Mohammed/Turiaf
Brown, Mohammed, Hill, and Redd all on one year deals. Depending on cap between 10-18 mil is cap space. Chris Paul potentially in play 2012, hold bird rights on all other players with zero cap hold requirements. Which team gets further in the post season, and which team is better situated to contend going forward.
