Here’s the story on ESPN:
In the proposed trade, New York would send Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry to Minnesota and the Timberwolves would send Corey Brewer and a first-round pick to Denver. Denver would also receive Wilson Chandler from New York.
The deal is not expected to happen until the middle of next week at the earliest, and one source said it could drag out until the trade deadline. Denver, which has been exchanging proposals with the Knicks for the past couple weeks, is weighing other options.
I’ve always liked Randolph, but I dunno… maybe he’ll just never live up to his sky-high potential? If there’s any place he can, it’s with us and having Kahn believe in him, I suppose.
I would NOT trade our own pick for this next draft. We have a few other crappy protected 1sts; one of which is probably worth Randolph.
I don’t think it really matters about Brewer being involved, as he won’t be retained by us next year anyways (it doesn’t appear.) I have liked him a lot though recently. He’s playing well, especially defensively.
WHY would we do this though and take Curry and have to pay $5M and then cut him after the trade deadline? That makes no sense. A few weeks ago it was that we could trade a first for Randolph. So what’s with Curry and Brewer? Stupid.
We have all the power here if they really need the Wolves involved to complete this deal. Just take what we want (Randolph) and give up nothing (aka one of a few protected firsts which we don’t need anyways.)
If Kahn does this with our OWN pick involved for next year… get him out of here. Help the Knicks and the Nuggets and screw us over in the process? Egads.
Funny comment from “Cycosurgeon” in the TWB Forums:
The only good that will come out of this suggested trade is the fact we can put Curry in an old Oliver Miller uniform, and relive the old days before we cut him.
