    This is Moreyball's absolute dream stretch 5. In just his 2nd year he's already making about 36% of his threes in almost 5 attempts/game.

    On top of that? His contract is dirt cheap - $4.5 million in 2017/18, $5.7 million in 2018/19 (team option), and a 2019/20 qualifying offer of $7.5 million.

    We could offer Capela to the Knicks as their rim protector of the future, take Melo off their books by including Anderson' and Williams' salaries to match, and offer picks and another young player on our roster if needed.

    Unlike George and Paul, Porzingis fits us perfectly and wouldn't be a rental player. Morey loves making trades that help us now and in the future, and this would be a textbook example of one.

    At this point your starting lineup is Porzingis, Melo, Ariza, Harden, and Beverley with Gordon, (maybe) Nene, Dekker, Harrell, Wiltjer, and Taylor filling out the roster.

    So we should offer Capela, Ryan Anderson, Troy Williams and I guess Montrezl Harrell as the "young player" plus a couple of late first round picks for Kristaps Porzingis and Carmelo Anthony?

    I mean, sure, it's Phil Jackson so why not.

    Oh, I forgot about Troy. I'm referring to Lou Williams since his salary is needed to match

    What is Phil doing over there? NY fans were going to lynch him for drafting the guy. Then fell in love with him and his skills. Now, theyre going to lynch Phil for trading him.

    stop...

    Rockets don't even have the assets for a Paul George rental and y'all think Morey has any chance of getting KP?

    Seems Phil has the old school "my way or the highway" mentality so I think he views a team willing to accept the rebels Porzingis and Melo in a package deal is doing him a favor.

    Morey considers Capela to be a future all-star. He can sell that to Phil along with two solid role players in Anderson and Lou.

    Our willingness to take Melo off their hands is our best "asset". Other teams have better trade pieces but they aren't willing to take on Melo's contract.

    Agreed, we should trade everything for Porzingis...makes the Knicks think they'll have a contender after the trade lol

    Anderson + Gordon + Lou + find a way to land them a center (Dwight lol)


    Howard
    Anderson
    Melo
    Gordon
    Lou

    Knicks best team in the East :eek::D

    Tell Fail Jackson that Sam Dekker, Eric Gordon, Clint Capela, Kyle Wiltjer, etc. all really love the triangle offense. Fail Jackson will trade for anyone who love the triangle offense.

    I am not too impressed by this dude's attitude, but yeah, this should be Murray's focus this off season. Younger and a better team fit than Chris Paul. Also, more years of control than Paul George. I would include Clint, Ryan, Lou and/or picks.
