When I think about this I feel like it sorta makes sense. Like all teams get something they want.

I like the idea of Melo being in the west to help the west cannibalize itself. We get an ok player.

I'd greatly prefer to send ou a second or two instead of a first

I assume at some point, Houston will throw in Capela and NY will agree to take Anderson. 

Something like

Anderson, Ariza, Capela, and draft picks

for

Anthony and O'Quinn
Ohio State 2014/15 National Champions.

The Knicks would not accept this.

Doubt it, don't they love Capela?

Willy wouldn't be moved in a Melo deal unless Knicks are upgrading.
My Top 5
Trade targets.      Draft.                     FAs
1. Davis              1.Fultz              1. Griffin*
2. Cousins          2. Tatum          2. Hayward
3. Butler              3. Jackson       3. Millsap
4. George            4. Ball               4. Lowry
5. Favors             5. Isaac            5. Gali

Probably, but O'Quinn is Capela light and they could really use Anthony as a 3rd scoring option.  Plus, they get out of Anderson without taking back Noah in that scenario.

I agree. Lots of posters are too obsessed with stats in basketball. If you are just playing for stats without doing the other things that don't show up in stats it doesn't make for team success. Pretty much everyone on the Knicks plays like that, so while they have talent they can't even make the playoffs in a very weak East.
