  • Chandler to Knicks?

    Very Interesting indeed...

    In the latest twist of his expected departure from the Dallas Mavericks, Tyson Chandler is closing in on a deal with the New York Knicks, according to sources close to the process.

    "New York is Tyson's first choice," one source told, confirming a Thursday report from that the Knicks have jumped ahead of the Golden State Warriors in the race to sign Chandler.

    "It's 98 percent sure that Tyson is going to wind up with the Knicks."

    How is all of this going to happen, you say? Well....

    To create sufficient salary-cap space to sign Chandler, New York is expected to shed the contracts of Chauncey Billups and Ronny Turiaf, through either trades or the forthcoming amnesty clause.
    Then the biggest shocker in all of this..

    Signing Chandler, sources said, could free up the Knicks to offer star forward Amare Stoudemire to the New Orleans Hornets in a trade scenario for Chris Paul, who badly wants to reunite with Chandler after their time together with the Hornets.
    Stoudemire for Paul? Interesting...

    I wonder if Stoudemire spit his coffee out when he read this one.

        I like this signing for the Knicks. They'll have a great front line but are ridiculously thin at the guard positions and the bench. I am under the impression that they'll be forced to amnesty Billups to create cap space to fill out the roster.

          The Knicks traded Rautins to the Mavs. They are about to sign Bibby.
