Proposed Knicks/T-Wolves trade from Bill Simmons

Fake Trade 1a: Gallinari, Curry and $3 million to Minnesota for the Mark Blount/Brian Cardinal ECs. Basically, Minnesota would be paying $10 million next year to get Gallinari for 2011, 2012 and 2013. Total financial commitment: $23 million. Isn't a lottery pick and potential 50-40-90 percentage guy worth $23 million over three years (just $9 million for the last two), especially for a team stupidly playing the "we're waiting for Ricky Rubio, so tuck yourself in and enjoy three years of losing and misery!" card? Of course.

 

 

Taking on Curry's contract for next year would be a tough pill to swallow, but if the rumors that we won't be making a big splash in the FA market next summer are correct than I'd pull the trigger on this (although it sounds like Gallo is the one untouchable in NY).  This nets us a rising star at SF who can spread the floor and pass with the best of them.  If Knicks are this desperate to move Curry,  maybe we can squeeze a 2011 or 2012 protected first rounder from them.
