Their owner has made it known that he's not going to pay one of their higher paid players to go perform somewhere else. That's understandable.
Now they'll have to shed salary the old fashioned way: trade away assets to clear space for Carmelo. That would mean Boozer and Gibson and maybe even a couple smaller deals if they had to. Certainly not Butler though. They love that guy.
Then it'd have to be Boozer and Dunleavy because no one would take Gibson I doubt. He still has three more years. Would 18 million or so be enough to land Carmelo?
Would you take Boozer and Dunleavy if it meant the 16th pick? You'd be essentially locking in our team as:
I would if we had a wink wink deal with them to also give us Thibs for a couple future 2nd rounders. They can recruit Melo & let him pick the coach of his choice.
