A History of Assets the Knicks Have Given Away Post Melo-Trade

On February 22, 2011 the Knicks received:

F Carmelo Anthony, G Chauncey Billups, G Anthony Carter, F Renaldo Balkman, F Sheldon Williams, and F Corey Brewer

While the Nuggets received:

F Wilson Chandler, F Danilo Gallinari, G Raymond Felton, C Timofey Mozgov, a 2014 first-round draft pick and a 2012 and a 2013 second-round pick, three million dollars

While the Timberwolves (to offset salaries) received:

C Eddy Curry and F Anthony Randolph

It was the bombshell that started the current era of Knicks basketball from 2011-2014. It also began an alarming trend of giving up assets to receive NBA players. Too much assets.Here is every major trade the Knicks have made since February 22, 2011 and a running total of assets the Knicks have given up.

December 10, 2010

Traded: F Ronny Turiaf, cash considerations and a 2013 second-round draft pick to Washington

G Andy Rautins to Dallas

Received:C Tyson Chandler and the draft rights to Ahmad Nivins and Giorgos Printezis.

Waived: G Chauncey Billups.

Net Loss (2011-2014): 2 NBA Players, Cash Considerations, 1 Second Round Pick

Net Receive (2011-2014): 1 NBA Player* (the asterisk means a large contract the Knicks won't be using as trade bait in this timeframe) 2 Draft Rights

December 22, 27, 2011

Claimed Steve Novak, Jeremy Lin off waivers

Net Receive: 1 NBA Player*, 2 Draft Rights, 2 NBA Players

July 11, 2012

Traded: G Toney Douglas, F Josh Harrellson, F Jerome Jordan, 2014 and 2015 second round picks, and cash considerations to Houston

Received: Marcus Camby

Net Loss: 5 NBA Players, Cash Considerations, 2 Second Round Picks

Net Receive: 1 NBA* Player, 2 Draft Rights, 3 NBA Players

July 16, 2012

Traded: F Jared Jeffries, C Dan Gadzuric and the draft rights to F Kostas Papanikolaou and G Giorgos Printezis, and a protected future second-round draft pick to Portland

Received: G Raymond Felton and F Kurt Thomas

Net Loss: 7 NBA players, Cash Considerations, 2 Draft Rights, 3 Second Round Picks

Net Receive: 2 NBA* Players, 1 Draft Right, 4 NBA Players

February 21, 2013

Traded: G Ronnie Brewer to Oklahoma City

Received: 2014 Second Round Pick, Cash

Net Loss: 8 NBA Players, Cash Considerations, 2 Draft Rights 3 Second Round Picks

Net Receive: 2 NBA* Players, 1 Draft Right, 4 NBA Players, 1 Second Round PIck

July 10, 2013

Traded: F Marcus Camby, F Steve Novak, G Quentin Richardson, 2016 First Round Pick, 2014 Second Round Pick (from Oklahoma City), and 2017 Second Round Pick

Received: Andrea Bargnani

Net Loss: 11 NBA Players, Cash Considerations, 2 Draft Rights, 5 Second Round Picks, 1 First Round Pick

Net Receive: 3 NBA* Players, 1 Draft Right, 2 NBA Players

So for all of those trades the Knicks have lost 6 draft picks, 2 rights to drafted international players, cash, and 11 real life NBA players, for Andrea Bargnani, Raymond Felton, Tyson Chandler, Kurt Thomas, and Jeremy Lin. Thomas and Lin are no longer with the team (hooray not via dumb trades where we shipped them out!), but hey we still have the draft rights to Ahmad Nivins, a player in France from New Jersey who is 27 at this point. I would not be surprised that he is our backup center next year because we have no one else.

To say the Knicks couldn't survive the Carmelo Anthony trade is dumb. The amount of assets we cultivated and short-sightedly shipped out of New York post Melo is staggering. Every single trade was a failure for the Knicks, including the one where we managed to get a future asset for Ronnie Brewer.

What this does show is the Carmelo Anthony trade can be judged in a new light. A light that shows the front office and owner's propensity to trade useable assets for fool's gold. That is alarming in the post-Melo wake. While the initial Melo trade may not have killed the Knicks, the mindset it created surely did. Thank goodness the CBA would not let us trade our 2015 and 2017 first rounders until those players were drafted by the Knicks.

RIP, Knicks assets through 2017.
