    Just said it on Ireland on ESPN Radio. Not a buyout, but a deal.

    Damn, I will take it, but I preferred a buyout.

    If this goes through and it only uses Ryno and filler, we would still have Gordon and Ariza to try to get PG13 if it's still out there on our radar of possibilities then.

    Only happy if the centerpiece is Anderson and not capela or Gordon...although I guess it'd have to be considering salaries

    I detest Melo.

    But I think we are out of the PG sweepstakes; we basically gave up what we had for Chris Paul.

    No way the Knicks buy him out. This makes sense. Hope Rockets aren't giving up much if they trade for him.

    Best,
    Rob

    Just posted this in the CP3 thread literally less than a minute ago.

    Ryno and Capela plus non guaranteeds for Melo.

    Paul
    Harden/Gordon
    Ariza
    Melo/Trade exception
    MLE/Nene

    Wouldn't surprise me if this is where we end up. While clutchfans might not like Melo, Morey has chased him several times.

    Would have definitely preferred a buyout but Melo has consistently proven he will not give up any money ever.

    Need to wait this out to see if they can work a Millsap/Anderson S&T in some form. Don't see this materializing before July 1 if at all.

    Ryno for Melo. Only the Knicks would be stupid enough, and only because Dolan seems ready to start over once again.

    Morey bustin' out a huge bottle of lube for this one.

    Sadly if we want to compete, we need it to be a buyout. Melo is fantastic, he is... but to be that top dawg, we needed to trade for PG13 and pick up Melo after a buyout.

    Paul
    Harden
    George
    Melo
    Capela
    ----
    Anderson

    Preferably we dealt Anderson and Kept Gordon but Indiana doesn't necessarily want Anderson though he would fit fantastically with Turner.

    I really don't want the Rockets to give up Capela here. Knicks want to get rid of Melo, so beggars can't be choosers.
