Things are already heating up with a big trade
happening this afternoon between the New York Knicks and the Toronto Raptors - Knicks send out Steve Novak, Marcus Camby, and two picks (a first and a second) for Andrea Bargnani. Of course the early word was that Toronto was interested in a straight salary dump for Bargnani (Caron Butler's name was mentioned), then the Knicks stepped up and... well... acted like the Knicks. Amare, Melo, and Bargnani are the worst defensive front line on the planet. Tyson Chandler helps... though he looked ready to retire in the playoffs earlier this year.
This deal was not approved by the league. Apparently the numbers don't work. So, for the moments, it's erased, as in, never happened. Just part of the madness I guess.
Oh yeah, and another trade happened where Houston sent Thomas Robinson for parts; second round picks and the rights to a couple of Euros. The significant thing, of course, is that the Rockets have successfully cleared around 20M, plenty of room for one Dwight Howard.
Anyway, get out all your stupid ideas, all your dopey potential trades, all your hopes and all your dreams and paste them up on this here thread.
