What is Larry Sanders doing?   Man he would be a monster with an athletic lineup.    If in basketball shape and focused mentally he would def be an upgrade over Ryan Hollins.

I think he opened up a "shop" in Denver.

Larry Sanders from wiki;

It was announced on February 21, 2015, following his second suspension for marijuana use, that the Bucks were buying out Sanders' contract.[16] On February 25, a video of Sanders was released where he explained that he entered into a program at Rogers Memorial Hospital for anxiety, depression and mood disorders. He claims that the program led him to realize "what's important, and where I would want to devote my time and energy" and that ultimately he realized that "for [basketball] to be consuming so much of my life and time right now ... it's not there for me. It's not that worth it." He did however claim to still love the game and that "if I get to a point where I feel I'm capable of playing basketball again, then I will."

Good for him trying to get his life together and realizing what is most important.   Sucks that he had to leave BBall to do it.

Too bad Andray Blatche decided he'd rather play International than in the NBA.

bleacher report article discussing potential trade bait for teams.   There are a few big men on it that could be useful for us.

 

Kyle O'Quinn

Alex Len

Cody Zeller

Josh McRoberts *Chris Wallace alert*

Terrence Jones

 

 

O'Quinn and McRoberts are probably the most obtainable.

That is only just, only BARELY more sensible than asking about Gilbert Arenas and Allen Iverson.

I'll take O'Quinn. I still think he has room to grow here. But McRoberts would be cool. Looks like he still has the Athleticism we Need

I think either one of them can be had for some combination of CLee or Tony and Vince.    O'Quinn is my preference too and Porzingas has made him expendable.  Len and Zeller have way more upside but them being former lottery picks im sure the asking price would be too high.

I don't want anyone who doesn't have an expiring contract - can't compromise our MAX cap space this summer.

O'Quinn makes 5.5m about the same as Tony.   If we do a swap with him then its a wash.

Yeah if you're sending out an equal or greater amount of multi-year salary then it's worth discussing.

Alex Len would be a very good option we can trade Clee for him straight up. O'Quinn can't be traded yet and McRoberts doesn't make much sense because we just traded with Miami and we could have got him then.

Yea but neither of them are really playing so it's not like you should have to break the bank to get them.

New York needs two things one is to get off of Calderon and the other is defense on the wings. They're only defender is Afflalo.

If you read the article the guy they had as the grizz rep would just so happen to be TA. I would do TA for O'Quinn and some 2nd round picks. If you watch O'Quinn's game besides the fact that he looks huge he kind of plays like a more athletic Zbo.

Calderon at this point in time is Beno Udrih on steroids. He is still deadly from 3 (shooting .500 for the season) but his already poor defense has become dismal with age. He shouldn't be starting for any team, let alone a rebuilding team like the Knicks. He's still a good distributor, so I can see him having some value dishing the ball to Porzingis, but honestly, I don't think that compensates his lack of defense. What they need to do is start Galloway, he may not necessarily be their long term PG, but it's not like Calderon will be either.

 

In any event I don't see the Knicks being interested in TA. For one, imagine TA in the triangle. He would send Phil Jackson to an early grave. For another, teams that need a defensive specialist off the bench may be interested in TA, but the Knicks need better players for their rebuilding, or at the very least players who can be there for 2-3 seasons and contribute immediately if Porzingis' progression propels them into contention. TA doesn't fit either need. I mean, Afflalo is a good player and it's not like the Knicks are going to start TA at SF...
