Knicks get:   Irving, Crowder, Frye, 2018 Celts pick, 2018 Cavs pick, Clippers pick (via Celts)
(this breaks down more or less to Irving for Porzingis and the rest for Melo)

Cavs get:  Carmelo, Marcus Morris, Laker/Sac pick

Celts get:   Porzingis


Cavs get tougher and match up better with GS....... and against GS small ball can have:
Love, Lebron, Melo, Smith, D. Rose   OR   Love, Morris, Lebron, Melo, Rose

while starting:
Rose, D. Williams, Felder
Melo, J.R. Smith
Lebron, Melo, J. Green
Love, Lebron, Morris, Melo, J. Green
Thompson, Love

Celtics get the guy they want:
Horford, Porzingis, Hayward, Smart, IT

Celts lose a couple of swings in Crowder and Morris...thus more minutes for Semi O., Tatum and Brown.

We'd be slightly thin on the wing (in terms of guys we'd actually want to give NBA minutes), but this is interesting. Although, the Cavs can't trade their 2018 First.

1. Cavs want Bledsoe not Marcus Morris.

2. Marcus Morris can't be traded that quickly.

3. Knicks aren't going to move porzingis so quickly. They'll sell him on the new melo-less knicks first

That's actually not true. Common misconception.
