They lose a great scorer in Latrell Spreewell, and Van Horn can't make up for it.
Although they lose a solid rebounder that can put points on the board too, they get Latrell Spreewell, a scoring machine. This should provide another option away from Duncan.

San Antonio Express-News: There were more reports Sunday that the Spurs are trying to concoct a trade that would bring Knicks guard Latrell Sprewell to the Alamo City.
This scenario involved three teams. The Spurs would send Malik Rose to Philadelphia, Philadelphia would send Keith Van Horn to the Knicks and the Knicks would send Sprewell to the Spurs.
However, the Sixers have signed forward Kenny Thomas to a seven-year, $50 million deal, and sources familiar with the Spurs situation said there was little chance that Rose would be involved in any move with the Sixers.
In addition, the Sixers reportedly have said there is no such arrangement on the table.
That doesn't rule out the possibility of some trade, possibly involving another Spur, such as free agents Stephen Jackson and Speedy Claxton.
Spurs assistant coach P.J. Carlesimo, the former head coach of the Golden State Warriors, says he would have no problem with Sprewell joining the Spurs' roster.
Latrell Sprewell's days in New York appear to be numbered.
The Knicks are trying to find a fourth team willing to be included in a complicated trade that would involve sending Sprewell to San Antonio and with the Knicks getting Keith Van Horn from Philadelphia, according to a person familiar with Scott Layden's thinking.
Last week, there were reports that the Sixers would get Malik Rose from San Antonio but the Spurs have said they will not trade Rose, a backup power forward who also happens to be Tim Duncan's best friend on the team. It is unclear as to which club is the fourth team in the deal or whom the Sixers will get in the proposed trade.
One Western Conference GM said yesterday the Knicks were close to trading Sprewell to the Spurs. However, a Knicks spokesman denied that a trade was imminent.
