I don't understand your point about how having Billups would make it financially impossible to sign cp3 or deron considering Billups expires before they do. Since a team option doesn't matter which you are correct about, what was your initial point? Felton being an expiring which Billups would also be?

Am I missing something here or are your facts incorrect?
I never said Billups would make it financially impossible. The FINANCES are what makes it virtually impossible. Having both Melo and Stat signed to max extensions makes it difficult in and of itself to make room for a 3rd max slot, its not the same situation as in Miami where they all agreed to take a pay cut and have tax free income. It's going to be virtually impossible to begin with to have the cap space for DWill and CP3, which is why we must retain as many a.ssets in a potential Melo deal as we possibly can.

Walsh needs to keep his leverage in tact. He needs to keep his flexibility with the cap in tact, not taking on longer term salary. If he doesn't, he will lose that leverage if DWill and Paul use similar tactics in trying to force their way to NY by next years deadline.

Trading Felton for Billups as part of a Melo deal hurts his leverage. Not because one is better than the other, but because one is much younger than the other. With Felton, Walsh knows he doesn't NEED to upgrade (though it would be nice). With Billups on the other hand, the Jazz and Hornets KNOW we NEED to find a replacement moving forward and the price to pay will be much higher due to that fact.

My point basically is....Walsh has shown his philosophy centers on flexibilty and options. He loses that flexibility by swapping Felton for Billups.

Nuggets are running out of options. Expect leaks by CAA in the next few days.

If Melo signs an extension with Denver I will laugh my a.ss off. Financially that's his best bet.

Also was Chauncey Billups included in this proposal since Felton was? It makes zero sense for Denver to even target Felton with Ty Lawson waiting in the wings unless there is a follow up deal already in place. They should be trying to acquire TWO OF Chandler, Gallo, Fields.

So the whole team for Melo??



I think I would do it though.. But I definitely would stretch it out as long as I can, trying to come up with better trades.. That trade should be last resort..

If that trade was Melo & Lawson I'd do it...but giving up Felton & Gallo plus a 1st rounder is too much for a guy that's gonna be a free agent

s**t would be hilarious if Melo just leaves after the season and leaves the Nuggets with nothing...... they wanted everything but the logos on the shorts.

i think the knicks are doing the right thing

dont give up felton for billups. yea billups right now is better than felton but what about 2 years down the road when billups is on his way out of the league?

felton is good and young, they can mold him into the pg they need him to be.

gallo,idk much about that dude so they should go head and give him up.

gallo, felton, eddy, and a first, for melo, and billups. i hate to say it but the knicks lost. you get a top 10 player and a guy who has won a championship.

knicks (making the trade) >> knicks (not making the trade). even if they lose billups they could sign a serviceable guard or draft someone in the second round and sign for another position of need.
