Bucky Katt: "struggling" is putting it mildly
jayhawk88: Yeah, damn right there won't be any trades:Expirings: Kenyon Martin ($1.3m), Beno Udrih ($1.2m), and 3 guys under $1m.Carmelo: $23m player option next seasonTyson Chandler: $14.5m next seasonAmare Stoudemire: $23.4m next seasonAndrea Bargnani: $12m next seasonJR Smith: $6m next season, player option $6.4m in '15-16Ray Felton: $4.3m next season, player option $4.5m in '15-16Iman Shumpert: $2.7 next season, qualifying offer $3.8m in '15-16The only guys on that list that a team might have interest in from a basketball perspective are Chandler and I guess maybe Bargnani (less than 6 rebounds a game though...ouch). Hardaway Jr. would be a player teams would want obviously, but even the Knicks aren't dumb enough to trade him and his rookie contract. Smith and Felton having player options through '15-16 probably eliminates them from any serious trade talks, even if there was a team that wanted them.The best part? If Melo forgoes his option and signs as a free agent somewhere else next season, the Knicks will still be at $68m, which is going to be over the cap for '14-15 and only $7m short of the tax threshold.So yeah, there's no help coming, Knicks fans, and it might get even worse next season, unless you think someone like Channing Frye or Jameer Nelson replacing Carmelo are the answer.
Palmer Eldritch: Oh well, at least they'll earn a high pick in the upcoming draft. Too bad Thank God they have to give it to Denver...
Unauthorized Bratwurst: I don't keep up with the NBA all that much, but: could the Knicks use a center?Because it looks like one is about to come on the market...
spman: I bet Carmelo Anthony just milks his injury for the rest of the season, he's probably already bought a house out in LA.
Rwa2play: Unauthorized Bratwurst: I don't keep up with the NBA all that much, but: could the Knicks use a center?Because it looks like one is about to come on the market...What would anyone want with someone who's knees went out on him two years ago? Then again, the Knicks would do a dumbass move like that convincing themselves that they can fix him.
ClavellBCMI: Palmer Eldritch: Oh well, at least they'll earn a high pick in the upcoming draft. Too bad Thank God they have to give it to Denver...FTFY, because we *know* Dolan would waste it on some over-rated kid that would turn into a 6.8 PPG/6 rebound/2 assist bench player being paid $8 million a year for 5 years with a player option for 2 more years.
