(I'll get this out of the way immediately, my username is netsfan501, I know. I made this account on the Netsdaily site not knowing that this is all connected by sbnation. I am a knicks fan, and i find it fun to make big trade proposals, which is what I was doing on Netsdaily when I made this account.)
With that said, this team needs a complete rebuild in my opinion. (Probably my frustration taking over). I feel the most tradable assets we have are melo, shump/hardaway and felton. In my deal, i plan to use shump over hardaway because I think he has more upside.
Here it is. (This all works salary-wise, I put it in trade machine)
Why this works: Knicks get a fresh start with a very good backcourt nucleus (Walker, Harden, Hardaway) and keep Tyson and Bargnani. They also get deng to fill that obvious gap at SF.
Rockets: This is that hardest sell for me, its not bad for them as they get melo, but would they do it?
Bobcats: They get Lin, who will help tickets and jersey sales thus boosting revenue for them, while not taking a significant step down from walker. They also get a promising young sg in shump.
Bulls: They get rid of deng and his contract that they don't want to pay, giving room for Jimmy Butler, and they get a solid (and healthy) pg to fill the gap for rose. They also get some much needed perimeter scoring at the sg. They address their incredible lack of talent in the backcourt and shed some salary.
