Melo

He still gets to play with Lillard, McCollum, Crabbe, Evan Turner (LOL), Nurkic. It's still a good team that lets Melo get to shoot wherever and whenever.

Over/Under is currently set at 4.5 threads before the start of free agency (which is when I predict he will be traded to the Clips for Rivers/Crawford/Johnson, 21 and 23 firsts, and a 2nd)

That has Brooklyn trade written all over it if those picks are unprotected. By 2021, the Knicks depending on how they draft could be a playoff team. Melo and CP3 will still be ringless, old and losing by then....on their way out of the league.
If winning matters, the role shouldn't.....the results should.

My personal theory is that we were all set to make the Clippers trade, but at the deadline we could only trade for the 21 first, so we waited until we could trade for the 23 as well to have two firsts instead of one

The key to any Anthony trade is a Cleveland collapse. If Cleveland goes down even in the Eastern finals (to Boston), then the odds of the Knicks getting back fair value for Anthony increase exponentially. Love has to become available for the Knicks to get a good package back for Anthony - and Lebron has to become desperate.

I would love to find a way to get Ingram from the Lakers....would even take back Deng's contract to do it. Worth the risk imo.

Otherwise I'm down for 2 unprotected future picks and filler from the Clippers. Unless another team has a better offer.

Any team that trades for Melo is dumb. Unless it's a stacked team and he comes off the bench.

You're not getting Ingram from L.A, and I highly doubt you're getting Russell.

The best and most reasonable deal I can see being had with the Lakers that all sides would sign off on is...

Probably not, but the Lakers would have to give up more then that if we are taking Deng.

If we help Lakers clear enough salary though maybe it would be tempting for them to give up Ingram. Long shot, but I'd try.

Deal. But I doubt Melo goes to the Lakers if he wants to "win" as his main priority in agreeing to a trade.
