Top 4 Trade Proposals from Episode 447

In Episode 447 we proposed 29 trade scenarios involving the Knicks, one for each team in the NBA. Not all of them were great, but Marc and Jay each proposed three scenarios that we agreed were pretty interesting and would work for both teams.  In no particular order here are the 4 proposals:

#1 – The Knicks received Gordon Hayward and Terry Rozier for Enes Kanter and Tim Hardaway Jr. 

The Celtics do this if they get paranoid about Haywards health and Roziers regression and want to clear up a lot of cap space, the Knicks do this if they think Hayward bounces back next season and think Rozier might look better in a new situation.

#2 – The Knicks receive Klay Thompson for Tim Hardaway Jr., Frank Ntilikina, and Mitchell Robinson

The trade machine says the Knicks only get 1 game better, but if I were a betting man I’d guess the Knicks would be way better after this trade. Of course the only way the Warriors do this is if Klay says he’s definitely leaving and wants to be in NY.

#3 – Knicks get Ben Simmons and T.J. McConnell for Kristaps Porzingis and Emmanuel Mudiay

Too many ball handlers on the 76ers right now with Butler and Embiid, and Simmons seems like the odd man out. He can be the man in NY and Philly can have a front court of Porzingis and Embiid for a decade.

#4 – Knicks get Pau Gasol and Rudy Gay for Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee

The Spurs do this because they are in win now mode and this makes them better. The Knicks do this to clear up a bunch of cap space over the next two years.
