If I were the Knicks, I would give up Melo for all the picks and some assets. That would be good for both sides.

His lack of athleticism combined with poor defense is just something I need to stay away from when considering he wants to be extended with the max this coming Summer. He's not worth a pick. You could perhaps re-consider if he had more years on his rookie-scale, but he doesn't look like he's going to be taking a big step from what he is now and that payday is coming. I ain't tryna be the one to pay Monroe...

EVERY player wants the max.... doesn't mean he'll get it. I could see him getting maybe $12M/yr for 4 years.

Not worth a pick though? This is a legit big man who was hair away from avging 16 & 10 on only 13 shots last season. Borderline all-star talent. Think you're being more than a bit harsh there. Plus, he'd fit in well with PHX's perimeter talent.

That would be a dream scenario for the Knicks... but I'd hang up the phone if I was PHX.

Melo is a chemistry-killer and a "me-first" player. No thanks.

He ain't getting any better, he hasn't since his rookie season. If he was athletic to a point and has any defensive game, I'd care.

I don't pay him.

He's only been in the league 3 years....

Kevin Love isn't athletic and doesn't have any defensive game. Now I know that's a stretch but you get my point. I'm sure that PHX would love Drummond (and so would I).... but let's be real... that isn't happening.

I'm not saying he is a bad player, just not the star that Phoenix should be looking for.

lol Kevin Love eh, make the case for all the players who play under the rim I suppose

We get to tank while getting a likely lottery pick next summer via Minnesota, NY gets to get a couple picks and an upgrade at the PG position and retool which they need desparately and Pheonix gets the star player they covet for said picks.
