The Knicks and Nuggets have completed a trade that will send forward Renaldo Balkman to the Nuggets for guards Taurean Green and Bobby Jones.
Jones and Green are expected to be released by the Knicks, while Balkman figures to be a nice fit for the Nuggets, who are still trying to replace the rebounding and defense lost when Marcus Camby was handed to the Clippers. The Knicks will save $1.32 million in cap space next year in the deal.

This needed to happen with the signing of Roberson & the emergence of Chandler...they had too many guaranteed contracts for next season

Green may get a look at during training camp if some more bodies are dealt this offseason

wait. what? getting rid of a player even though he's "good" because he doesn't fit into the system and will help you cut out some salary... and actually GETTING a draft pick instead of giving up one?

this is like a trade that an actual basketball team would make. are we sure the knicks actually did this?

$1.32M against the Knick cap.

That should help...

If you can't score D'antoni has no use for you. When asked about defense he responded "Defense????? What's that?"

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

Balkman is an offensively challenged player. D'Antoni needs 3s and 4s that can shoot and take it to the hoop as well. Matrix is the perfect example of that type of player. Balkman is an OK player.

Balkman can dunk but other than that, he has no semblance of an offensive game. Wilson Chandler, on the other hand, is the type of player that will become a stud in this system. I'm not just predicting OK stats, but tremendous stats from him as he acclimates to the system. He's already got a very well-rounded game as he can shoot the J with confidence and he's got an explosive first step to the hoop.

Gallinari and Chandler is a nice core to build around.

The next step is seeing when the Curry/Randolph saga resolves. There's no way both are coming back.
