the biggest issue here isn't whether amare will hold up or his contact. (though his contract will severely limit us from getting a starting caliber SF, let alone a star one). the biggest issue is I think bargnani's game would compliment NY's game very well. melo in the post, Bargnani providing spacing for that. it could make NY stronger than it makes us, and that's if Amare does work out.

and it's not addition by subtraction, if we needed that we would amnesty bargnani. this team,without bargnani, is worse. period. derozan's game without Bargnani will suffer, do not doubt that for a second. and you know, lowry's will too I think. just not enough range in this team without bargnani. Shooters get into slumps. his shot will come back. for 6 years, if we've seen one thing from bargnani, it's an elite or near elite offence.

we lose in this trade. big time
