damn amare

yo i went on the trade machine on espn bro I swear I can't find one LOGICAL trade to ship Amare out of new york with that contract and get anything back for him. Do you see anybody making a play at Amare and what can the New York Knicks get back? Or is this just an amnesty situation? Or did they use it on Chauncey not to sure?

Its a serious issue.

Its a serious issue. Especially considered the Knicks are lucky he plays more than 50 games next season.

The knicks should consider

The knicks should consider any trade that gets them out from under his contract, and I don't think a single team would take Amare without the knicks agreeing to pay a considerable portion of his salary as part of the deal. his only value for the rest of his knicks career is what he could fetch in a trade as an expiring contract in the last year of his deal.

I wouldn't SMH amare. If

I wouldn't SMH amare. If somebody offered you 5yr/$100m contract, you'd take that 11 times out of 10.

This is why the NBA needs

This is why the NBA needs non-guaranteed (NFL) contracts.

Nope just needs smarter GM's

Nope just needs smarter GM's not paying 100 million to a injury prone PF who benefited from a great passer in Phoenix Steve Nash.

Amare was getting MVP buzz

Amare was getting MVP buzz his 1st season in New York. Unforseen injuries are what killed him.

Possible Option

Even if the Knicks are interested, there's no guarantee Toronto would do it, but:

Andrea Bargnani and Ladry Fields (NY reunion) + filler (Aaron Gray?)

for

Stoudamire

I think it could work for both teams.

Amare, like Nash, need Aaron

Amare, like Nash, need Aaron Nelson back in their lives. Also the Knicks should have included him in the Melo trade since they clearly can't play together.

This trade would work: Amare,

This trade would work:

Amare, James White, Earl Barron, the 24th pick, cash, a future first round pick, and a future second round pick to the Pacers for Danny Granger, Ian Mahinmi, and Miles Plumlee.

The Knicks get rid of Amare and add two big men to put on the bench just in case they need a really good bench clearing brawl (more than likely against the Pacers), plus two years of Danny Granger's knees. The Pacers get Amare who might be able to give them something, James White
as a small forward practice dummy, a soft big man with a soft touch plus the NIT and NBA title combo in Earl Barron, the 24th pick, and two future picks plus some extra cash to overpay David West.

This is the perfect trade to piss off both fan bases who already really, really hate each other.

I wish the pacers had granger

I wish the pacers had granger the pacers heat series would be very interesting because the pacers have no one on their bench who can score and he would be able to do it.

No one is trading to get

No one is trading to get Amare's horrid contract right now. It just won't happen until its about to expire. When its about to expire the Knicks can likely acquire a player a team is sick who is almost assuredly overpaid and maybe a pick or two to go along with it. Until then Amare will be absolutely be a Knick.
