Default OFFICIAL: Crawford Dealt for Harrington

If not Crawford, then according to Vescey its Malik Rose. Either way, if it is Crawford leaving for Harrington then I don't see this really benefiting the Knicks at all.

There are conflicting reports concerning which players the Knicks will include in the trade. Peter Vescey presumes that the deal is for Malik Rose. Ric Bucher of ESPN is reporting that the Knicks will send Jamal Crawford to the Warriors.

The move will reunite Walsh with Harrington, whom the Pacers president drafted out of high school (No. 25) in 1998.

In terms of talent, that's an AWFUL trade for the Knicks, but in terms of financially, it's pretty good - clearing more space. I guess the thought process there is that they have guys there that can play the 2 - Robinson, Chandler, Richardson.. so Crawford can be deemed expendable.

crawford for harrington?
thats a HUGE downgrade for NY.
crawford is their biggest scoring threat along with randolph.
Harrington in NY doesnt make sense; Randolph is having a fab year, david lee is just damn awesome, and wilson chandler is breaking out. why would they want harrington?

the only possible scenerio would be playing harrington at PF, pushing chandler to SF, and Richardson to the bench. but this would stunt david lee's playing time even more.
its dumb.

"Donnie Walsh is set to pull the trigger on his first substantive move as Knicks president, The New York Post has learned. Knicks sources said a deal for Al Harrington was to go through late yesterday, but was delayed until today. A league conference call is scheduled for this morning that would bring the disgruntled Warriors forward to the Knicks, presumably for Malik Rose. Harrington has two years left on his deal--currently $9.3 million with $10M guaranteed on tap in 2009-10. Rose, attractive to the Warriors because of his expiring contract, is set to make $7.64 million this year. The deal can be made one-for-one because their salaries are within 25 percent (plus 100G) of each other."

Malik Rose for Harrington This is a good trade for the Knicks.

It's not Rose for Harrington. It's Crawford for Harrington.

Quote:
The Golden State Warriors and New York Knicks have agreed in principle on a deal that would swap disgruntled Warriors forward Al Harrington for Knicks guard Jamal Crawford.


ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher reported early Friday that the teams were nearing completion on a deal featuring Harrington and Crawford. ESPN.com has since confirmed that those two players, barring a late adjustment, would be the only two involved in the trade.

Yup, looks like the Knicks want to get Harrington because he only has one year left on his contract. I never thought I'd see the day when the knicks would make a money saving move. Harrington's contract ends in '10, Crawford's in '11.

LeBron to NY?

Also, Crawford has run the point in his career. I could see this being a motivating factor for GS as well.

fuck, i wish i had Beidrins on my fantasy team.
maggz, jackson, and now crawford - and no other big man in his way - he will be grabbing 20+ rebs a night.
the only drawback is he'll be lucky to get 2 shots for himself.

So Gs sates starting 5 is
PG-Jackson
SG-Crawford
SF-Maggette
PF-Turiaf
C-Beidrins
Hopefully Crawford coming in won't stunt the growth of Morrow who has potential.

NYN
PG-Duhon
SG-Richardson
SF-Chandler
PF-Harrington
C-Lee
That is a small line-up

Randolph will be starting, with Lee coming off the bench.

Randolph at C wold still be a pretty small line-up. I think this trade just made NYN worse. They started the season good but now I think they will go down

And Harrington should be sixth man in NY.
