And the Knicks send us Eddy Curry plus cash considerations of $198,688.00 to make the numbers match up. After the trade we will save a total of $10,776,515.00 over the long run, and if were lucky and Curry has a great year and decides to opt out, then we will save an additional $11,276,863.00
I know Eddy Curry has some heavy issues that he still needs to deal with, but I believe he can still do some great things for our team. This trade would help both teams in many ways, for the Lakers it will give us a beast of a back up at C/PF who can create his own shot and dominate the boards. Plus we would save a ton of cash. Walton was great for us, but we basically won the championship with out Sasha, so we won't miss very much just Walton's passing ability. The Knicks do this trade because they get rid of Curry and it won't affected their salary cap next year because Curry is still under contract, plus they get a couple of experinced players to surround Labron James with next year.
This deal will put us at twelve players so we sign Rodney Carney to replace Sasha and call it a day!!!!!

AztecaEmperor wrote:Curry lost about 40 pounds already, so that means he is committed. Let me see you lose 40 pounds in 2 months, it is not easy, especially if you like chicken wings. Besides the Knicks don't need any more expiring contracts, they are already 30 mil or so under the cap for next year. If they sign nate to a one year contract and keep David lee's contract at around 11 mil, they should have no problem signing Lebron"Queen"James next year.

The Gasol trade was great for us but made sense finacially for the Grizzlies. And this trade makes sense for us and the Knicks, Curry does not fit D'antoni's system, but Walton and Sasha due and like said earlier, this trade will NOT affect their cap space and it gives the knick some good role players. Do you think L.James will jion the Knicks if they can't compete for a title, heck NO! he's not that stupid. He does not want to be the greatest player to ever live and not win a championship. Even right now with out L.James the Cavs are a better team than the Knicks . Mitch said he would make a deal that was financially responsible, so say good bye to Walton and Sasha.
Well despite your belief, the Knicks are still strictly interested in expiring contracts, just read any of the reports from the beat writers covering the Knicks (or even check out Sheridan's article posted in the NBA discussion). They won't be able to land Bron if they can't land a second superstar too. So they do have to clear some additional dead weight and that's just what Curry's 328 pound self is...dead weight.
