thats true, isnt new york screwing themselves over by making this trade?
a) trading pieces for melo and they arent trading scrubs. felton, i dunno who else but definatly people theyd prefer to keep
b) theyd be paying melo max money under THIS cba and his contract will count against their cap next year under the new, lower caped cba, thus reducing their ability to add good role players.
wouldnt it be better for newyork just to wait it out? melo wants to go there anyways.., theyd be shooting themselves in the foot by doing this, granted not as much as new jersey
