    sorry if its been mentioned or if there is some sort of monster 'asik trade watch thread' doing on somewhere then please merge it.

    seems like an asik to ny, shumpert to boston, rondo to houston is possible and would satisfy all sides. this is probably just frank isola speculating though.

    Yeah, this is Frank Isola talking out of his ass. I really don't think NBA GMs value Shumpert that highly.

    Why would Knicks want Asik when they can have Rondo? Doesn't make sense. Plus the salary won't match, without involving Stoudemire JR Smith, or Bargnani.

    They need a good PG more than they need a defensive big.

    Food for thought...

    Dwight/Shumpert are good friends and both are from Atlanta.

    Out of all of PG's they have, NONE is serviceable. They are all scrubs and can't run a team.

    the article says they can't have rondo. ainge doesn't want to send him to a rival.

    maybe asik to NY, shumpert to bos, rondo to houston makes sense for all. ainge will want some picks to go with shumpert but we have all of our picks. i'd give asik and 2 picks. i'm sure this is all speculative though, but its fun!

    Remember when Stephen A Smith said Felton was better than Lin?

    lol I wonder if he feels the same way.:p

    Knicks want Lin back - this is what all these rumors are really about.

    My bad. It was such an outrageous trade, I didn't click on the links. Assuming Knicks have Asik, what's gonna happen to Chandler when he comes back?

    Knicks is such a dysfunctional and delusional organization. They don't have picks, trade away their youths, roster full of bad contracts, and they are back to the Dark Age of Isiah Thomas era.

    This year, they are literary tanking for Denver Nuggets!

    How would the Rockets work with Rondo?

    1. Rockets would have 4 point guards.

    2. Rondo is a ball dominant player... what happens with Harden?

    3. Rondo can't shoot. How will that work with Houston's offense?
