Araton: Trade D-Will For Melo

The Knicks have a problem: they have no point guard. The Nets have their own problem: they need to convince Deron Williams to stay. So Harvey Araton proposes a trade: Carmelo Anthony for Deron Williams.

Here's part of his argument: "Would the Nets swap the uncertainty of the free-agent-to-be Williams for the certainty of bringing Anthony, whom they pursued doggedly last winter, with them to Brooklyn next season?" He thinks the answer is Yes. "Why not make that call to New Jersey? Why not offer a deal that suddenly makes sense for both sides? Unless Stern and the owners tell them they can’t."
