Default Breaking News : Knicks Trade Frye And Francis For Zach Randolph

Knicks Get : Zach Randolph, Fred Jones and Dan Dikau

Blazers Get : Channing Frye and Steve Francis


We get rid of Francis, Add Randolph 24/10 player. Fred Jones and Dikau status in new york is uncertain. I want to keep Fred Jones.

Channing Frye had a slump this year but he won't be better then Randolph!

Isiah is a genius.

Isiah is still one of the worst GM's in the league, despite this probably being a good trade.

The only negative, again, the knicks take on another long-term contract, which puts them over $100 mil for team salary this year and next.

thanks for that...Isiah adds a great player to the team and you can only think about how our salary is going to be higher than it normally would have been? At least the player we added now is going to actually play for us

I don't know how to feel about this trade. Do we get more talent? Yeah definately, but is it really the right fit? Are we still running our team through Curry? Both Curry and Randolph need the ball to be effective and both aren't the greatest passer so it's going to be interesting how they work together.

As for Frye, this isn't the best situation for him. He's on a team with a lot of bigs and I don't know how he's going to handle the fact that he won't ever become a starter on that team.

Not sure how I feel. Zach is a baller but his effort is questionable at times and I'm not sure how well he and Eddy Curry will fit together.

Well, we didn't really give up too much for Randolph, but I don't think this is the trade that is gonna turn the knicks into a contender. If Q and Lee stay healthy, and Randolph/Curry are able to play some decent defense, than I think we have a pretty good shot at making the playoffs. I still think Isiah is an idiot though.

It definitely makes sense for Portand and it kind of makes sense for the knicks.

Zach is only 25.

I don't thin Isiah is done yet.

I think he is looking to get rid of Jefferies.

I thik he wants Lewis still and is trying to figure out a way to make it happen.

Lewis is a SF, Randolph is a PF.

He might package Chandler if they allow it in the NBA, Jefferies and maybe next years #1???????????????????

Portland is really changing their roster.

BTW, I just wanted to add in that now we definately don't need Lewis. Lewis now wouldn't really mesh with the team that well since Zach can provide some perimeter shooting, Knicks need a nice defensive guard. Unless we could get him for say Q-Rich or Crawford, Nate and Jeffries, I would do it. Pietrus would be nice.

We still need some outside shooting from the 3.

I love Q but if we can move him and nate for Lewis, I would do it.

Q scares me with his back.

randolph is a problem. im a big fan of his. but i dont think he's the right compliment to curry. i kinda like the move but i wouldnt have done it. i would have like them to get a shot blocker next to him. randolph isnt that good of a defender. but with curry and randolph that can be a good frontcourt. i think with all the proposed trades going on around the nba i think he was pressured to make a splash and he definitely made a big splash.

We dont know how zach and curry will play but this is a good trade. Both francis and zach has huge contracts but atleast zach actually plays and is a double-double guy. Maybe Isiah plans to use zach as a trade bait. maybe for Lewis bec its easier to trade Zach than to trade Francis
