Trade Timmy and our pick to Dallas for their pick and Matthews.

Trade Lee for Harkless

Trade Noah and 2020 first for Tyson Chandler

T.Burke can do what Kemba does and they're the same size and he's much cheaper. Burke just needs a team to give him the minutes Kemba gets.

If you think Burke is anything like Kemba you know nothing about the NBA and what separates decent players from great players.

I just wanted to say that I found it ironic how Kyrie threatened to get season ending knee surgery if the Cavs didnt trade him, and he ended up having to get surgery anyways which did cost the Celtics the eastern conference title.

Kyrie's injury concerns are legit. Only 3 times in his career has he been consistently in the lineup. Injury this yr cost the Celtics the NBA finals, his injury in game 1 of the finals in 2015 cost the Cavs a legit shot of winning it all. Hes an all-world talent but I can see why some people arent overly excited about him.

I would be for it, his talent and age are just too good to pass up. But I wouldnt trade for the man. Knicks need to keep stockpiling young talent and cant afford to trade pieces away. We arent ready for that at all.

But Im not getting my hopes up w/ this. Kyrie isnt signing his extension this yr because the man knows he can get paid way more by the end of the next season. Knicks just need to manage their cap space smartly in case an impact player happens to be actually interested in us next season. If Kanter opts out in a couple weeks, dont even use up that cap space honestly. Already messed up giving Timmy that contract for 4 years, cant afford to do that again.

I have an idea. How about we give the kid we drafted in the lottery a year ago, to play that position, a chance to play the position? Instead of constantly overlooking him. We’ve committed to 5 other players sense drafting him to play point. It’s a little ridiculous.

Tell me when Trey Burke averages 22 and 5 on a 56% true shooting percentage over a 3 year span and i'll acknowledge your argument.

He didn't really have an injury this year though, he had a procedure done to remove the wires and screws from his knee that he fractured in 2015. Then when they did the procedure they found out he had an infection and had to do another procedure to clean it up. He was eventually going to have the procedure done anyway, it was only a matter of time. He started to experience some irritation so that's why he went to get it checked out and they found out he had the infection so they decided they would immediately remove the screws and wires. The fracture was completely healed though, according to doctors, so now he's just waiting for the holes in the knee from the screws to heal up and he should be 100% healthy in a few months.
