New York Daily News talking about the possitibility of Paul being traded to the Knicks this season. What do the Knicks have to give up that the Hornets would covet? Would the possibility of having a "Big Three" this season be too great to pass up, or should the Knicks wait until Paul is a free agent in 2012?
I don't think the Knicks have enough to offer unless they have give up all three guard prospects - Douglas, Shumpert and Fields, as well as Billups' contract and cash. I don't think you can do that to a team that is already thin from the Carmelo trade. It would take too long for the Knicks to build the roster around them, and Amar'e's knees won't last forever. I think this time you develop your squad, be as compettiive as possible with STAT and Melo and wait until Paul hits free agency in a year.
