Ok, sound off on this one NBA fans! What do you think about yesterday's trade between the Phoenix Suns and the New York Knicks?
The Knicks get:
The Suns get:
the rights to Milos Vujanic
two first-round draft picks
McDyess has already proven to be a bust, and bailed on Phoenix once before. He's an unrestricted free agent after this season, so don't look for him to be back. This would give the Suns a lot of breathing room to sign a big name next year, if any are available.
The Knicks get arguably the best or second-best point guard in the NBA, who is locked up in a long-term deal. They also get a resurgent Hardaway, who is earning $30 million over the remaining 2 years on his contract.
Personally, I think Bryan Colangelo went a little trigger-happy and pulled off an ill-advised deal solely to get cap room...and in so doing, essentially conceded that this season is over.
