Alan, if we pick up the 5th pick, how about trading down the 8th for Chicago's 2 first round picks. So basically trade Chandler and the 8th for the 5th, 16th and 26th picks.

if the trade Chandler I will cry and have to strongly consider rooting for the Thunder...the THUNDER! Chandler is great, he plays defense, he can play three out of five spots, and he is still improving, if he gets better at dribling and improves his jump shot he could reasonably be a17.5 points per game guy who scores said points with a decent level of efficency. There is no one the fifth pick iit worth giving up Chandler...unless Washington takes JJ and gives us JaVale McGee. I would still cry...but at least I wouldn't be rooting for the Thunder.

Chandler's best position is at the 3 spot. All of Walsh/D'antoni's moves have been to clear the way for a certain #23 to fill that. With the cap coming down, we need to get rid of Jeffries' contract because there's no way Eddy Curry's $ is being moved.

If we stay at #5 & #8, I would love to see Curry (pls no more Steph) and Hill or Tyreke Evans. Hill moreso, b/c we have no interior defensive presence whatsoever.

Since we have no 1st rounder next year (thx Isiah!!!), then I see merit in getting the #16 and #26. With those picks our possible 2009 haul could be Curry/Hill at #5, Ty Lawson/B.J. Mullens (#16) and Wayne Ellington (#26). We get a PG, PF/C and SG who would all fit in D'Antoni's SSOL system.

If Hill is stil available at 8 I agree we take him. If he's gone (GS?) I say trade down, target Henderson or Mullens with 16, maybe Daye at 26 or trade down again for two of Portland's 2nd round picks to grab from Green/McClinton/Suton/Gaffney. While we're at it why not get 32 from Washington along with 5 for Chandler - if I'm Washington I still do that in a heartbeat. We need PLAYERS, SHOOTERS, BIGS - we need everything.

doesn't matter who the nixs pick.. probbly will blow out their back an be out indefinitely. Jets and NIxs are a lot alike. NO matter what they do,no matter who is in charge, nothing changes.

It'll take a gem like Chandler to get it done, but I don't know. I think Walsh/D'Antoni covet him too much. But the idea of a #5 and a #8 is too enticing, and I'd probably do it.

The Knicks should they get the 5th and 8th should think about trading 8 for chicagos or minnesotas 16/26, 18/28. They can then take a shot at Lawson, Williams, Calathas, Hansboorough, Mullins, Claver and others....they are more likely to get a better draft with 3 first rounders.

Knicks should not trade up for anyone. Let the picks fall where they may. If you don't like number 8 section, I say trade down and get more picks. Rubio may be a mistake.

Is there anyone the Knicks aren't going to draft? These pieces are laughable.
