It looks like that a trade for Porzingis is not that unrealistic anyway. I think he is trying to force himself out of New York.
And maybe the price isn't even that high
I think that a trade involving Bradley, Crowder, a first rounder(not nets) and a few second rounders might actually be enough, at Knicks might be blowing it all up.
I know the trade doesn't work in the trade machine so we have to bring ind some salary filler and maybe even involve a third team to make it happen.
Knicks will do the deal, as Bradley and Crowder are great lockerroomguys that would really be great on a rebuilding team.
We would do it, because we can then trade for Hayward and have a pretty good rotation, especially if get to draft Fultz.
Thomas, Smart, Fultz and Rozier
Hayward, Brown and maybe someone like Jerebko on a minimum deal!
Porzingis, Horford, Yabusele and Zizic
I think that team might actually be a contender
Think so as well, I'd actually resign James Young and sign Nader for the wing spots. Also I'd use the MLE for a guy like David West or Mo Speights. Finally I'd pick a hardworking center with one of our 2nds who is basically a body to use inside when Horford or Porzingis get hurt.
PG: IT, Rozier, Jackson
SG: Smart, Fultz, Young
SF:Hayward, Brown, Nader
PF:Porzingis, West, Yabusele
C: Horford, Zizic, 2nd rounder
2nd unit is super young but they've got Rozier (has some playoff experience),West (enough said lol) and Jaylen (quick learner so his rookie season should be good experience already, especially as we're looking to go relatively deep in the playoffs this year). Fultz is a phenom so I guess he'll pick up things quickly during the season, especially with good vets around him. As for Zizic, he's already got some pro experience unde his belt so I think he'll be fine, playing in the best league in the world except for the NBA is no small thing, especially when you lead a team to beat the best non nba team in the world in the playoffs.
