This trade of course would never happen in a million years. Dolan would never trade Melo to the Nets. However, ignoring all that for a minute. And assume the Knicks management wants to get the best deal possible for a star player. Could they do any better than Brooks and Williams for a guy everyone thinks will walk at the end of the year? Plus this trade would make the rivalry absolutely absurd, which would be awesome.
Would you make this trade? If you had to throw in Plumlee or Our Euro Stash Player would you still do it to make it work? Would Melo fit? Would he be the missing piece?
A starting lineup of Livingston, Joe, Melo, Pierce, and The Big Ticket looks pretty sweet. You would also have a great back up center in Chandler with Blatche and co. still coming off the bench. Melo might have the supporting cast he needs.
