    Since the trade, we are a .650 team. Thats the team I want to keep together.
    Let them go forward and see what happens. A trade at this point may upset team chemistry.

    Agreed. As a matter of fact, any trades shouldn't involve giving up picks to bolster roster for playoffs. Perfectly content with as is OR an offer that MU CANNOT RESIST (ie. DD or Lowry - with an eye towards the future).
    In agreement. At the end of the day I don't think there will be an offer out there that can entice MU.

    I have to agree. There has to be something missing from that deal if it's actually been discussed between the three teams. I can see why New York and Toronto would agree to it but not Atlanta.

    If Ujiri can actually get Teague + a 2014 mid First Rounder for an expiring Lowry and nothing else then he's officially a hypnotist.


    Trusssst in meeeeee

    I wonder if NY would be willing to part with Chandler? Atlanta needs a center. If they want to make a playoff push Chandler would be a solid pick up. Acquiring Chandler could also be a reason why Atlanta would be willing to part with a pick.

    That is one of the dumber trades I've ever seen proposed. Atlanta gives up their young, above average PG on a reasonable deal, then throws in a 1st round pick for shits and giggles, all so they can have the pleasure of watching Shumpert jack up ill advised shots before going down with an injury.

    Atlanta is well under the cap next year so they don't even need to clear cap space. Why in the hell would they give up a 1st round pick and one of their best players?

    I get that people don't want to disrupt team chemistry, but: this is not so good a team that we can afford to stand pat. This is a .500 team right now, maybe a little bit better than that; we're not a true title contender in any sense of the word because even if we got lucky against one of Indiana or Miami, we wouldn't get lucky against both of them.

    If we were a .600 team then yes, by all means, let's worry greatly about team chemistry. But we aren't, so let's continue to look at acquiring talent and assets at every possible opportunity.

    He might find Toronto more appealing though.
    But I don't find him appealing...

    Courtesy of the CBA guru Matt52 in an earlier post, apparently because of the nature of Teague's signing (rfa matched offer by Bucks)...Teague cannot be moved before July something unless Teague agrees to it. So there is that. If I were him I would be loath to go to NY and deal with the circus there...or get some serious coin to waive his right.

    Sources: Knicks eye Jeff Teague

    ESPN.com | February 17, 2014

    Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague has emerged as an appealing trade target for the New York Knicks, sources with knowledge of the situation told ESPN.com.

    Sources told ESPN.com that the Knicks, leading into Thursday's 3 p.m. ET trade deadline, are calling all over the league in an attempt to upgrade at point guard.

    Atlanta point guard Jeff Teague has emerged as a trade target for the Knicks, according to sources.
    Teague's name has surfaced as a prime target given the Knicks' increasing fears that their longstanding top choice -- Toronto's Kyle Lowry -- will not be made available before the deadline, according to sources.

    The Knicks have been chasing Lowry all season, as ESPN.com first reported in November. But sources indicate that Lowry and his advisers expect to finish the season in Toronto with the playoff-bound Raptors before he becomes an unrestricted free agent July 1.

    Teague's name has thus surfaced as a prime alternative, provided that the Hawks are willing to part with him.

    The Hawks would have to be interested in Iman Shumpert -- and eager to shed Teague's long-term contract -- to give New York any hope of assembling a package to land the point guard.

    But there are other potential complications beyond the Knicks' lack of draft assets. Teague has three seasons left on a four-year, $32 million contract that would slice into the Knicks' projected 2015 salary-cap space.

    Teague also has the right to approve or block any trade through mid-July because he signed an offer sheet with the Milwaukee Bucks last summer as a restricted free agent that the Hawks matched.

    The Knicks, though, are clearly determined to try to import a floor leader before the trade deadline. Sources say Denver's Andre Miller is another target, but New York is said to prefer a younger guard such as Lowry or Teague.

    I think this Teague rumour was started by NY media... which is very unreliable in my opinion. I don't think a Hawks team would trade Teague to help their tank position (which I would assume is what they would want to do) and then also give up a first round pick. If your goal is to move backwards you don't give up a pick. So it just doesn't really make sense.

    If they want to shed his salary I guess they'll make a move.. but that kind of trade can then be done in the off season. It's not like they have to worry about being a tax team.

    Assuming it was on the table.. Teague + a 1rst rounder for Lowry? Hell yah! Where do I sign? It also means that Lowry had no intention of coming back to Toronto and MU was being smart. It might alter their playoff position but it wouldn't hurt it too badly. Lowry is the MVP of the Raps, but Teague is still a good PG in the league. Teague can also easily be flipped to another team as he has a decent contract.

    Lesson of the day: Knicks are even MORE desperate for a PG now than 2 months ago
