Default Should we somehow try to get rid of Amare?

He's the big white elephant in the room right now when discussing our setbacks. He hasn't been healthy for about 2 years now. Should we still have faith in Amare? I'm torn

i still dont get why most of you are desperate to get rid of him....yea hes taking 20 mil of the cap, but getting rid of him doesnt mean we get to sign another guy for 20, it just means the team (who charges absurdly high prices for tickets with him or without him for the matter)will save a few bucks in taxes...we already overspent last summer...and we are a contender without him anyway, not like hes taking something away from us, but he will bring something when needed, if needed

Prob a little late though I do think he could still be a very good player in the right situation. I'm just not sure anyone would game on him being healthy.

It is funny that it was a terrible idea to move him to most of you while it was possible but now you want to trade him when it might not be possible.

Have you learned your lesson or not? Is Tyson chandler somebody that the Knicks could trade, or do you want to wait till his value goes down and you'll want to trade him then?

What do you think about trading Amare for Bargnani ? Could it work out for both teams ? Discuss.

I'd like to try to trade first before gutting out team. And how does Chandler situation compare with Amare? Amare has two rebuilt knees.

I think we should make a play for Dwight. Sounds farfetched but if they don't make the playoffs, it may not be. After seeing lopsided trade after lopsided trade, I don't put anything past any GM. I think if we put Amare and Tyson on the trade block and get multiple teams involved, we may be able to pull it off. I HIGHLY doubt it, but just hypothetically, may work.

Dwight at his worst is still clearly better than Tyson AND it gives us the opportunity to get rid of Amare. I'm not saying let's get him for the sake of getting him. I'm not really trying to get in the Dwight sweepstakes. But if we can upgrade our center position AND get rid of Amare's dead weight contract, I'm for it.

Dwight is clearly a better player than Tyson Chandler.

But he's a baby. I don't think Melo,J.R. and others would like to play with him.
Tyson knows his role,doesn't ask for touches on offense,isn't a diva and doesn't create problems in the locker room. He can also knock down free throws at a decent rate. He isn't a good free throw shooter but he isn't as bad as Dwight.

So I don't really know,chances are pretty high that Dwight's immaturity would make this team worse,not better.

Only one problem.....

The team is over the cap and luxury tax and effective the upcoming season, teams in this state cannot execute sign and trades.

Only teams below the tax can do so.

That's what happens when 40 mil is tied to two players.

Besides Dwight actually can play and no one thinks amare can play more than 20 minutes if he comes back at alll.

Why would the Lakers consider this, when they are trying to get under the luxury tax themselves?

Knicks priority should be trading Novak. Hopefully some team in need of 3pt shooting trades a 1st for him.

Trade a bench player on a contract like that for a 1st?

Get Dwight and get rid of amare at the same time?

At least now I can see why many of you don't like thinking about realistic trades- why discuss something that could be possible when you can picture grabbing USA Olympic team players in exchange for the bad contracts. Shoot if the Knicks trade amare, chandler, Novak, Camby, and Kidd there is enough salary space to grab both Dwight and Chris Paul. And maybe even a guy on a rookie deal like cousins
