I see the knicks trying to make a move this summer to trade for a PG. They dont have many assets so im looking at giving up Gallo and/or Chandler for someone like Devin Harris or Jonny Flynn if those teams win lottery or maybe Collison from NOH. What are your thoughts.
they dont need to trade for a pg...they have sergio. like some knicks fan said hes young flashy and is there future starter. now they just need a back up for him. dont you agree?
and the hornets arent letting collins go. they have pretty much made that clear unless someoneoffers something special im sure
I think that he is a nice backup for them but isnt the future for their revamped overhyped free agents
1. The Knicks are not trading Gallinari.
2. Johnny Flynn and Devin Harris are not the answer.
3. The combination of T. Douglas and S. Rodriguez, while far from ideal, is pretty good.
4. I think the Knicks are going to do everything they can to get the rights to Ricky Rubio.
The Knicks have two major flaws, a lack of rebounding and poor defense, especially on the interior. If I were Donnie Walsh, that's where I would focus my attention
I could see the Knicks inquiring about the Raptors Jose Calderon this summer. He seems to be on the trading block and there was a stretch where he wasn't starting but just started to start recently. He seems to have lost favour in Toronto.
NY should sign Raymond Felton.
Gallo is untouchable. D'Antoni made the move for him. If NY could move up in the draft and if Eric Bledsoe falls....don't be surprised they try to package maybe both 2nd rounders and Wilson Chandler to move up to get him.
A NY guy I know told me- Expect NY to look to move Chandler for a future 1st or to move up into round 1 this year.
yeah i was just seeing youre thoughts on sergio..hes a back up at best. douglass showed he can score but not isnt much as a set up man
Yea I can see them actually trading Chandler at some point, for a high draft pick. hate to say it. Additionally, they will try and get the rights to Ricky Rubio as much as possible, guaranteed.
yeah that sounds like a knick move..move up to get bledsoe( whos shows hes more of a undersized 2 guard then a pg) hed be fighting for back up minutes at best
Douglas is more of a Eddie House with more PG ability for Mike.
I believe NY should offer Felton a nice deal ( maybe 5-45) then look to add players with the 2nd round picks.
In addition to the comments I made above, I agree that Chandler will be on the trading block because both he and Harrington are so inconsistent. They have moments where they look terrific and then they start making silly mistakes and turnovers.
As I mentioned above, the number one priority for NY revolves around rebounding, shot blocking, and interior defense. Teams drive and score against NY at will.There's virtually no resistance on the interior.
And they're out rebounded almost every game. While I love David Lee, he isn't an NBA center, he's a power forward.
too bad bosh,boozer or amare arent known for much defense. not that they will get anyone of them but if they did
Ugh......Me, Personally, I'd trade Gallo before I trade Chandler...
I just dont see what other Knick fans see in Gallo, I'd MUCH rather have Chandler...
But regardless, im sure the Knicks'll have plenty of options...alot of guys will be on the block this summer
Felton, Calderon, Ford, Ridnour, Barea, and depending on what happens in the draft, guys like Flynn & Harris could become available...you know, not really superstar names, but they'd all be an improvement over what we have now...
i see a list of backup pg's or part time starters. i dont see anything of real value the knicks have to get harris or flynn
MagikKnick raised an interesting point, Chandler or Gallinari. Let me suggest why I think Gallinari isn't going anywhere, while Chandler may be on the trading block.
1. Gallinari was the number one draft choice of the new administration, they have a lot riding on him.
2. This is essentially Gallinari's rookie year. He's only 21 so his body will become stronger as he matures and he will get much better with experience.
3. Gallinari's shown flashes of becoming a star on offense while playing with a team that doesn't set picks for him or put him in a position to score.
4. He's also shown flashes of diversifying his game by driving to the basket.
5. If that wasn't enough, his defense has improved dramatically over the course of the season.
Chandler has more physical talent but he was a disappointment this season. He's incredibly inconsistent, you never know what you're going to get from him. And he doesn't have the same upside as Gallinari, who could become a star.
In addition, Chandler was an Isiah Thomas selection, so current management isn't emotionally invested in him. Never underestimate how important that is when trades are formulated.
i dont know..hill was a draft pick of the admin as well.. though i do agree that gallo might not go anywhere. but he will go if they could get a better or equal value player for him which i doubt they will
Quincey, your comment on trading Jordan Hill was actually an interesting one. However, I think that only strengthens my point about Gallinari. If Walsh decides to trade both Jordan Hill and Gallinari, people will probably start asking if he knew what he was doing when he selected them. In light of that, I don't think Walsh wants people to believe he doesn't know what he's doing on draft day.
