Nuggets short-handed?
 
Just wondering, with K-Mart, Wilson Chandler, and JR Smith, three core players of their team, leaving for China with no NBA-out clause, who will the team get to fill the holes if the season is still on?

Don Vito 09-28-2011 06:56 PM

Wilson Chandler got traded to the Knicks...

And K-Mart/Smith are pretty much worthless to the team IMO.

no he didn't

the chinese teams will let them out of their contracts..... they don't deal with unhappy players. It's all about selling tickets in the interim.

let em stay in china, the nuggets bust get a high pick. then the year after watch them return to playoff contention

Kenneth Faried is gonna be one tired camper by the end of the season

jeffb 09-29-2011 09:43 AM

JR Smith is a free agent (not likely bak)
Wilson Chandler (Free agent, aparently wants to be a knick again)
K-Mart (sucks balls at this point)


To say they're gonna be shorthanded when at least 2 of those 3 were not likely to be back anyyway is jumping the gun. I'm going to assume the Nuggets have a plan in place.

so jeff are you thinking a little conspiracy theory possibly that the chandler back to the knicks was discussed beforehand? (to the trade)

There was a rumour a month ago that Chandler, who is a FA wanted to sign with the Knicks.

interesting. I was asking tho if you think maybe that was discussed before the melo trade? not neccesarily that chandler had a choice in the matter but maybe just that the knicks told him "don't worry, you'll be back." He was well liked there wasn't he.

I really liked the knicks before they got melo. Nice to watch, young players, team-ball. Don't dislike melo but out of all the star players in the NBA i feel he adds the least to his team.

i wouldn't doubt it, i believe that happens all the time. not sure what the knicks can afford though, and they need a Center before a SF.

Lol Yeah no need for a starting SF to come back to replace a superstar SF. Wilson can also play the PF spot though....but guess who plays there too?? :cookie:

Chauncey can handle the PG spot for a bit, Fields might not be enough for SG, and Turiaf :cookie:

yes mate, same here. Pre melo trade i had a great association go where my big move was to get in monta instead of anthony and I kept hold of wilson. Nice team. Plan was to make a big move for Paul in 2nd season but my raps go is hogging all my time so haven't got there yet.

Wilson is good enough to be a starting SF in this league. Just not even close to Melo's level. Maybe Raps?


And yes I loved the Knicks pre-trade, I really like Amare as the main option. Liked his leadership, swag etc. Exciting to watch, but never really serious contenders.
