Knicks want to give Amare away...so does Boston consider him
« on: December 22, 2012, 08:13:08 PM »
If Boston is ready to write off the season on January 15th, does that mean they might be willing to make a play for Amare.  Sure his contract is huge and he has some injury concerns, but Boston pretty much has to go all in or just throw in the towel and get rid of everybody.  Since NY wants to get rid of him a team could probably get some other assets as well.

Something like this would work

Green, Bass, Lee, Joseph, Wilcox

for

Amare, Shumpert, Brewer, 2013 1st, 2015 1st

With one of the extra roster spots Boston could sign K-Mart as extra insurance.

New lineup
PG - Rondo, Shumpert
SG - Bradley, Terry, Barbosa
SF - Pierce, Brewer
PF - Amare, Sullinger, Martin
C - Garnett, Collins

Clearly a big risk for the Celtics, but if Amare gets healthy, I would fee a lot better about Boston's chances of winning a title with that lineup than what they currently have.  Shumpert also provides a real legit backup PG and has size to where he could play with any of the other short guards. 

Joseph and Wilcox had to be included to get Shumpert back (for cap purposes).  I would have preferred to keep them, but they are worth trading for Shumpert.

No chance NY trades us Amare and Shumpert for that package, not even close.

Also, I think there is some law of physics that states that Shumpert and Bradley cannot be in the same place at the same time, ever.

That won't happen, taking their prospect, injury prone but good player, nd brewer for role players. Sadly they wouldn't agree
DKC: New Orleans Pelicans
Pick 2: Toronto
PG: Lowry/Jeremy Lin
SG: JJ Reddick/Avery Bradley
SF: DeMar DeRozan/Demarre Carrol
PF: Josh Smith/Ryan Anderson
C: Pau Gasol/Tiago Splitter

no way Shump is on their trading block.

I'd love to have A'mare in green, especially for how little the Knicks want, but he's owed so much money I can't see us going after him.

Michael Jordan: No. Larry's white, so what?
Bill Murray: Larry's not white. Larry's clear.

not sure the point of this thread.

he has the same issue as Gasol ..a stupidly big contract for what he can provide today.

Lakers and Knicks need to "SUFFER" some more with these bad contracts.
No reason for the Celtics to be part of this out for two major opponents.

I heard this morning that Amare's contract has two years and $45 million remaining on it ... ouch, that's a lot of moolah!

For those saying NY wouldn't do this, I'm confused.  NY tried to give Amare away in the summer.  As in actually give him away without getting anything for him and no one would take him.  That says to me they wanted to get out from under his contract this summer before they started off so well without him.  They don't want Amare anywhere near that team, but the only way they will get rid of him is to give up some pieces to do it.

As risky a move as it would be, I'd gladly trade Green/Bass/Lee.  It's not as if we have anything to lose.  I'd prefer a less risky move, but would do this one if was the best/only available.

Amare's contract isn't really that terrible for the C's.  They have no money to spend for the next couple years anyway.

And no one really wants our average at best players either. No deal.

I think all of the guys posting that the Knicks wouldn't move Shumpert to move Amare are kidding themselves. They would love to get out of (by almost any metric) the worst contract in the league that hasn't been amnestied. I know that fans don't really understand but an uninsured contract is pretty much like plague from an ownership standpoint.

Which is why Wyc would probably never let this trade happen. Risking your future to win now is one thing. Risking your future to win and failing while losing $45M over 2 years is something else completely. Large market teams like the Knicks and Lakers can do more of that than smaller markets can because of the TV deals and huge merchandising. They just flat out make more money.

Also, and I don't mean to belittle this thread at all, but I posted this first here. Specifically the bit about Shumpert and Brewer being involved.

So while I think Dolan might listen to an offer that nets him good players for good players while shedding Amare's contract I'm not sure the C's would ever offer.

I'm way more interested in moving Green/Bass/Lee/Sully for a Gasol/Clark/Ebanks/Sacre. I think STAT is pretty good but Gasol is better in just about every way. He's also not into punching glass things during the playoffs which is a big plus in my book.
