Ridiculous Knicks Trade proposals Pt. 1


Hey guys, I'm a long time reader, first time poster, die hard fan like the rest of you. Like some of you, I'm also a numbers guy (if you haven't seen Aaron Barzilai's work over at Basketballvalue.com I strongly suggest you check it out). Anyway, here are some crazy trades with different degrees of Linsanity. All involve trading Stat or Melo. Let's take a look:

1) Most Insane - http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=bpmwm6x

(For the Lazy) =

Knicks get: Dwight Howard, Taj Gibson, Luol Deng, Hedo Turkoglu, & CJ Watson

Bulls get: Carmelo Anthony

Magic Get: Amare Stoudemire, Tyson Chandler, Kyle Korver.

Knicks 2012:

C: Howard

PF: Gibson

SF: Deng

SG: Shumpert

PG: Lin

Bulls 2012:

C: Noah

PF: Boozer

SF: Anthony

SG: Hamilton

PG: Lucas

In all likelihood, Bulls either go hard in free agency or flip Melo for a PG and more. Draft a SG and are back in the top 4 in the East without any problem.

Magic 2012:

C: Chandler

PF: Stoudemire

SF: Richardson

SG: Reddick

PG: Nelson

Great lineup no doubt, Anderson or Big Baby could be flipped to make it even better. In addition to the free agent splash.

2) Medium Insane - http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=dy688nr

(For the Lazy) -

Knicks get: Rudy Gay

Grizzlies Get: Monta Ellis & Drew Gooden

Bucks Get: Amare Stoudemire & Grizzlies 2nd round pick.

Why this works for everyone: In this scenario, Melo moves to the 4 and Gay becomes that swingman we always needed. (haha) In return, the Grizzlies get the scorer they always needed in Ellis while Gooden becomes a dominant 6th man behind Gasol and Z-Bo. The Bucks clear up their offense which was dysfunctional under the Jennings/Ellis system. Also, they get their strong and scoring big man which They Have Been Needing Forever. I have no problem having the Knicks trade a future 2nd rounder to the Bucks as well if it feels one sided.

I'm going to see about the feedback I get for these 2 so far before posting the rest. Let me know what you think!

ADDED!

3) Kind of Similar to Insane (http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=7km9d5a%20)

(For the Lazy)

Knicks get Joe Johnson

Bucks get Amare Stoudemire

Hawks get Monta Ellis and Drew Gooden.

Same Story, except swap the Hawks with the Grizzlies and Gay with JJ. This is for if you think we need a SG more than a SF. Personally with this deal I'd either pass on Landry and look to FA for a PF. Or, Sign and trade Landry packaged with our 2nd for a 1st rounder and draft a PF.

More creative ones than this on the way...
