What do we have to give up for him? Philly is going to take Willy and a future first? Are giving them the cheese?

If I am Philly, I am asking Boston for a swap option for their nets pick and another asset. It will be interesting to see what the Bulls can offer...
he doesn't even play and according this this board it's because he can't defend a trash can

I however would offer KOQ for him
Plumlee if they drove a hard bargain

Alternately I'd offer lance thomas and a 2nd rounder but I see little reason they would want that

No, his celiling is lower than Kanter
While Kanter is a sieve on defense, he makes up for it somewhat by being a beast on the boards, similar to Willy
Okafor is a poor rebounder, which means that he won't be as good as Kanter

Or bench players on teams that want easy buckets off the bench

Or a fantastically skilled big man prospect on a rookie contract who realizes he has to work super hard to make it

I'd take that chance
Yeah, but Okafor is a good passer and has more moves in the post. Neither player are starters on championship teams. Just off the bench scorers on teams that run half court offenses.

DWill will be waived by MIA according to rumors.
This dude was loved by many. I'm a fan of him as as instant offense only.

This should not even be discussion of its him or NDour.

Mario Hezonja registered another DNP tonight. With Rob Hennigan on the hot seat, wonder if he would bite on a Courtney Lee with 2nd round pick deal for Hezonja and Jodie Meeks' expiring contract with Orlando desperate to make the playoffs.

I'm 100000% on board with that. I know Super Mario hasn't shown much since entering the league, but I still have hope he can at least be a shooter/scorer off the bench. I bet there will be a team that offers up a better package than that, though. :-? :(
Team tank...but...do NOT trade Carmelo Anthony unless we get GOOD value.

Absolutely. Works on many levels

Risk/Reward
Euro style of play matches to KP/Willie/Kuz and Donic when we hit the jackpot 2 years from now :D
Get rid of CLee's contract
Get worse and raise value of pick this year

He is, but hey, why not? When the goal is to lose games, he's got to go. Plus, Mario might have a higher ceiling. Might not, but Knicks not a playoff team for a few years and that's a waste of CLee. Might as well flip him for assets and that either means taking back salary and getting something, or in this case taking a chance and not. I like it. There are other scenarios to trade him too. I like him. If they Knicks were any good, I wish he'd stay. But they aren't.

I'm just not a fan of Hezonja, seems like a JR Smith type
Could be our scorer off the bench if he develops right, but I think we could do better from trading Lee

What's everyone's thoughts on trying to capitalize on KOQ's value right now and try and get a late 1st for him from a contending team who could use front court help. I'm looking at Toronto and Houston, specifically. Move O'Quinn to Toronto for Sullinger and the rights to the Clippers 1st Round Selection, which they have, or trade him to Houston for Nene and their 1st Round Selection. Both Sullinger and Nene are expiring as well.

You should always move the KOQ when you can

If its KOQ for him then awesome but Okafor is basically Hermangomez right now.

Id offer Miami a second round pick if they'd simply take Lance Thomas for him. Thomas might even have somewhat of a resurgence for Miami. But yeah, if a second rounder would do it, Id definitely love to.

See this is a man who thinks. The Knicks need to be making these types of trades. Nothing blockbuster but quietly adding to the youth necessary to help us rebuild. We got a good chance at a lottery pick already. You add a young piece like Hezonja and ya never know. Could mature in NY. I read yearly about guys who come outta nowhere, just as much as dudes that fall off outta nowhere. Itd still only be his junior season, technically still plenty of time. The potential is still there to at the very least be a shooter off the bench. And at best maybe he's a starting caliber SG whose 6'8 essentially. Good idea
