The magic get nene and j.r. smith.. obviously we get an additional inside presence with nene and a sharpshooter in smith. Losing richardson hurts because smith is a down grade but the additional inside presence might be a necessity with Bass hurt and gortat gone.
The knicks get carmelo.they give young talent in chandler, douglas and gallinari but they get the pairing of melo and amare. You might ask why would they do that if they know they could get him next summer. I would say Melo might be anxious to get his extension before the CBA.
Denver blows up their team but acquires really nice young pieces, not potential superstar piece but solid. They would also pick up a draft pick or two from the knicks. THey would also shed 25 millions off their books next year.
Who says no?
