Knicks Marbury to the Raps??

Quote:
The silly season gets sillier by the day. A reasonable, workable trade scenario involving the Knicks and Raptors was floated on Bulls.com by veteran NBA writer Sam Smith -- Stephon Marbury and Eddy Curry to Toronto for Jermaine O'Neal and Anthony Parker. Sounds good. The Knicks get something for Marbury, and J.O.'s monstrous contract comes off the books in time for the 2010 free-agent derby. Only one problem: The Knicks and Raptors haven't discussed a trade in months, according to an executive familiar with both teams' plans.

One thing is clear: Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo is looking to deal. O'Neal isn't fitting in with Toronto, and Colangelo is under tremendous pressure to turn this team around to appease Chris Bosh, who has the all-important player option in 2010. A likely trade chip will be Parker and his $4.6 million expiring contract. Toronto will come up numerous trade scenarios floated and discussed between now and the Feb. 19 deadline, and is all but certain to pull the trigger on something. Just not this one.

Marbury's buyout talks continue to creep forward, but a person with ties to Marbury said he doesn't expect anything to be finalized before January. The Knicks have given Marbury permission to find a deal with another team, but Marbury's representative, Hal Biagas of the NBA Players Association, is playing that side of it close to the vest.

There will be no trade market for Curry, on the books for $31.5 through 2010-11, until he gets on the floor and plays. He hasn't logged a minute since preseason due to a knee injury.

Ummm... Marbury is EXACTLY the kind of talent that we need here.

I doubt that he's going anywhere except BOS, MIA , DAL or LAL though.

I'll take Marbury but not Curry and I disagree ONeal hasn't worked out or fit in here... he's steadily playing more solid and then only thing that really needs to happen still is better chemistry with Bosh.

I think Starbury has a ton to prove to the world, himself and the Knicks in general and whoever gets him will get a super motiviated to prove ppl wrong Stephon who will be a force, i would take him, in a second.

we could use a leader.
but it would be another TJ situation where theres no way marbury's coming off the bench...

this team could use someone like him. it seems like theres no heart or passion on this team.

Last i saw they are still a playoff team, and adjusting to a huge change, it hasnt been that long, aslong as they make the postseason (and they will), they have a shot with that roster to make some noise, ppl are too quickly dismissing the trade as one sided, but lets wait and see, either way it gives them flexibility in the future, i like the deal for that reason aswell.

yea Bosh and o'neal looks like they can play well together.
I think they just need some more time together.
chemistry takes time to develop.
