1) Are you in favor of the Carmelo trade as a whole?
2) How desperate are you for Melo?
3) Say we are shipping out Favors, Morrow, Harris, Murphy, and Petro and receiving Melo, Billups, and Rip. How many picks are you willing to add to that package?
4) Is Al Harrington's contract a deal-breaker for you?
5) Are you willing to deal out multiple picks AND take back Harrington?
6) If Billups refuses to play for the Nets, is that a deal breaker?
7) Better player, for one season, contract and age not included: Billups or Harris?
9) After considering all this, what is the MAXIMUM you would give up in this trade, acquiring Carmelo, Billups, and Hamilton?
