Baron for Eddy Curry?

Bill Simmons threw out this possibility on a recent podcast, calling it his "unsubstantiated rumor of the day."  I'm wondering what Clips Nation thinks about this deal.  I can see why the Knicks would do it: Baron would probably be great in D'Antoni's free-flowing system, LBJ/Wade/Bosh would love to play with Baron, and Curry has a NEGATIVE PER.  It also makes some sense from the Clippers' perspective: they escape from the last three years of Baron's contract (Curry's deal expires next summer) and have an insane amount of cap space to toss at Carmelo/Durant in the summer of 2011. 

Personally, I'm in favor of giving Baron one more year to prove himself.  I think it's too early to call this experiment a failure and dump him for cap relief.  We saw what he is capable of when motivated (see: his masterful performance in our nationally-televised home victory over the Lakers).  I think (hope?) that Blake Griffin's presence will re-energize Baron.  He and Griffin could be a deadly pick 'n roll duo.  I still think he's in the upper-half of starting PGs in the NBA.  That being said, I'd be awfully tempted if the Knicks threw in a future first-rounder...
