Knicks get a decent PG in Ridnour and expiring contracts. They can also give Alexander a shot in D'Antoni's system before seemingly being shipped out of the league.
Bucks get a good scorer in Harrington, good defender in Jeffries, and a talented young throw in, in Douglas to sweeten the deal. The Bucks arent players in freeagency anyways. Harrington could be a big piece in guaranteeing Milwaukee a playoff berth.
It think he's going to a very good player, and hes cheap so he's on of the few players they wil keep if not expiring. He's not need ed for the Bucks to do this
Is likely not even going to want Douglas because Douglas could not co-exist with Jennings, I would rather see the Knicks give them Duhon to back Jennings up if they were to give up Ridnour. Great Trade, would be down with the knicks if they did it.
Also getting to see Kurt Thomas in a Knicks uniform once again would be sweet, I loved him as a knick he would be a great backup for David Lee.
Duhon couldnt work in that deal.
I dont want to trade Douglas either but I just put him in so no one could accuse me of making a lop-sided trade in the Knicks favor
lol..no one knows if douglas and jennings can coexist..i dont even know why you would even think he couldnt..im sure douglas knows jennings is better then him. plus you see how well luke does while playing with jennings and douglas is easily not as good as luke right now. i doubt the bucks would evgen want douglass.. too many other guards out there who can do what he does
Jodie Meeks can do what Douglas can do... But Ridnour to the Knicks would be a solid deal for them... A better playmaker than Duhon without a doubt...
and what is up with the wanting of luke anyway? he averages 3 more points and 3 less ast then duhon. hes another guy whos best as a back up. this guy has started before for more then half a season and never could put up more then 11 and 7 ast and his defense is worst then duhons..
I guess it's their way of making up with what they missed in the 2009 Draft... I think acquiring Ridnour sounds more realistic than anything else... Duhon shoots bricks and doesn't really post a threat anywhere on the court... The Knicks can't trade any of their players for Stephen Curry or whoever... They might as well go for someone that can be "reachable"...
true.. basically its pretty much equal trading luke for chris with one not really being much better then the other
i dont think joe alexander will be shipped out of the league... i guarentee hes good enough to make SOME nba rosters... hes a pretty cheap option and will likely get picked up by somebody this offseason...
Instead of Luke why not go get Colllison? He is looking like the real deal and can do what the Knicks would want and that is score when needed and keep the ball moving and he can run the court.
Knicks get- Collison and T-Mac
Hornets get- Hughes, Duhon, C. Hayes
Rockets get- Okafor and Peterson
No one is trading for Jeffries. I like how you say he is a "solid defender" and then just kind of move on, as if his contract is not the giant elephant in the room. Knicks would do that trade in a heartbeat just to get rid of Jeffries, and Milwaukee has no need to spend 7 million dollars next year on a nearly useless player. Throw is Jordan Hill and they MIGHT consider it.
i hope we dont trade hill he might b the key moving on i believe the only stars we have a shot on are joe johnson amare bosh and boozer i hope we get bosh then surround him with player like kyle lowery (i rele like how he plays) and rip hamilton i think we can get him prety cheap compared to other players unless we try to get an injured star in redd. so if we sign these three guys our lineup would be lowry rip gallo bosh and hill we wud pik up one piece to come of the bench as a gaurd and have chandler jeffries and the bak up gaurd as the bench we know how much dantoni loves the 8 man rotation
