Looking at some of these trade ideas, wondering if anything makes sense between us. We need rebounding and shooting, so a KOQ/Lee package is an intriguing one. How far off is something like:
KOQ / Lee for Teletovic / D.J. Wilson / 2nd?
Saves immediate $$$, sheds a year of Lee's deal and adds a 1st round rook & 2nd rounder to the farm. Apologies if I'm off my rocker here.
I'd definitely be open to that. But, it would need one of 3 alterations IMO:
• Another 2nd Added. Lee & Teletovic are a wash dollars wise, but value wise NY is sending more out.
• Swap out Teletovic for maybe Jabari Parker, and remove the 2nd. NY sheds salary and can see if Parker has anything left.
• Find a 3rd team to upgrade the two 2nds to a late 1st.
I would certainly add another 2nd.
Not the right type of deal to involve Jabari. His value is at it's lowest right now and he's more valuable to us than anyone else. I could, however, be open to talking Thon Maker instead of Wilson.
Not sure who we could find for that, but if we could, by all means let's do it.
Coming back for more, had an interesting thought.
MKE out: Matthew Dellavedova, Thon Maker, MKE 2nd
MKE in: Kyle O'Quinn, Courtney Lee
We upgrade our center position and add wing depth/shooting.
NYK out: Kyle O'Quinn, Courtney Lee
NYK in: Thon Maker, Cedi Osman, Channing Frye
Knicks get two young prospects and a nice expiring.
CLE out: Channing Frye, Cedi Osman
CLE in: Matthew Dellavedova, MKE 2nd
Cavs get LeBron's old buddy Delly and a future pick without giving too much.
Thought that this was a better deal for your Knicks than my previous. Can obviously swap out Maker for Wilson, take whoever you are higher on, but rather than Telly and a 2nd you get another promising youngster is Osman while saving money quicker with Frye coming off the books. All depends on whether Cleveland would want Delly back bad enough. At this point I think they'd rather roll with IT/Delly and cut Rose than rely on Rose at all.
