According to a person familiar with the Knicks’ thinking, the club will explore trading Wilson Chandler, possibly packaging him with the expiring contract of Eddy Curry. The Knicks would love to trade for a premier outside-shooting big man.
Chandler, who has had ankle surgery two straight offseasons, has a contract the Knicks likely will move to be enough under the 2011 salary cap for a maximum contract. The addition of versatile forward Anthony Randolph and swingman Kelenna Azubuike makes Chandler more expendable for a roster lacking size. The Knicks don’t believe Chandler can handle shooting-guard duties.(more)
If you admire anything about Curry, it would have to be the chutzpah, especially about this being a contract year, his little rant displays. If you didn’t know any better, you’d think that the Knicks were doing him a disservice by paying him $11.2 million to do whatever it is he does instead of playing professional basketball.
Believe it or not, the Knicks wanted Curry to actually play a role on the basketball court over these last five years. Curry’s own physical inability is the reason he only played 10 times in the last two years, something he conveniently leaves out of his plans for a boffo contract year.”
- Eddy Curry and his ailing knees will be sidelined for the next month & a half.
- Former Knick and the king of Ustream shenanigans Stephon Marbury will be lacing up his Starbury sneaks in China.
- Nate Robinson looks to be the first three-time dunk champion if he can end up beating out Shannon Brown, Gerald Wallace and Demar DeRozan (Eric Gordon, I don’t think so). He also scored 27 points off the bench in the Knicks comeback victory against the Pistons.
- Mike D’Antoni doesn’t find Larry Hughes very amusing.
