Given what you just said about Bargnani's "elite-level offense"?
Amare is a PROVEN all-star who scored 25/night as little as 2 years ago. He's also a career 53% shooter and grabs almost 9 rebs/gm.
Even LAST season when he was pretty bad for the Knicks he avgd about 17 & 8 on 48% shooting.
Compare that to Bargs' BEST season... 21 & 5 on 45% shooting.
Again... I acknowledge that it's a bit of a gamble but this would also show Lowry that we're serious about competing and would probably go a long way when it comes to convincing him to re-sign.
It's either this... or a play for Eric Gordon IMO.
Those are moves that are going to get us OFF this treadmill.

then we have the fact that Bargs
is what, 3 years younger than amare? and on about 8mill less per year? And although Bargs
has lots of niggly injuries, he has no major concerns.
plus we need a SF!
We lose? Why?
Bargs is younger, yes.... and cheaper.... for a REASON. He sucks!
Fields is here for another 2-3 years whether we like it or not. So is Ross. So is DD. One of them can end up playing the SF spot.
