Why would they dump Tyson? He's playing great.
If the Knicks wanted to salary dump Tyson next year, would anybody else be in for bringing him back next to Davis? After reading how Tyson taught and mentored Davis every practice and even worked with him after I would be all for it! He has always loved New Orleans just didn't like how he was treated when traded. It is a new regime so all of that wouldn't even matter. Davis and Tyson would be an elite big man combo. It would bring him and the team along so well in terms of defense. He would bring that veteran leadership and championship experience we are in need of. If Knicks are knocked out 1st round in NY, it is inevitable media calls for people's heads and some players are moved. Let me know what packages it would take or just straight up don't want him.

They will dump Amar'e Stoudemire before they dump Tyson.
I doubt they will dump him, but he is on a big contract. If they need to make a run a Cp3 even though Tyson would be a reason he comes they can't afford him. Amare will not be moved without taking tons of salary on. Just throwing it out seeing if anyone would be for it. Not a strong possibility, but if someone out there were to make the move we would be best suited and capable with cap. I know it's wishful thinking just wondering how others would feel and what we would give up or be willing to.
So he is an elite defender with a slightly above average offensive game. He's 30 years old, and has 2 years left on his contract, 14 mil for 2013 and 14.5 mill for 2014.
Having said that, if I could get him without giving up too much, I do it in a second. I'm not one to propose trades, so I'll let other people do that. Let's see what the board can think of.

If they are looking for a straight up salary dump, we can absorb Chandler's salary fully. If they want some young players they think they can mold into role players, we can give them both Aminu and Henry. If they want a cheap replacement center, we can give them Lopez.
Obviously, the above suggestions are based on them trying to dump salary because they are paying major tax dollars.
Trade 1: We get Tyson Chandler, and NYK gets Aminu + our 1st round pick. NYK get to dump major salary, they get a defensive role player in Aminu, and a 1st round pick as a cheap option to add to the mix. This only works if we do it at the end of the season once Rashard Lewis' salary comes off the books.
Trade 2: We get Bledsoe and Caron Butler, and LAC gets Lopez and Henry. Henry gives them a cheap option at backup SG, and Lopez starts over Jordan. They need Center depth to get through the west. We take on Butlers horrible contract sort of as a salary dump.
PG - Bledsoe, Rivers, Roberts
SG - Gordon, Rivers
SF - Butler, Miller
PF - Davis, Anderson, Thomas
C - Chandler, JSmith

I'd LOVE to get Chandler back. But I don't see them letting Chandler go. He's been behind the Knicks huge defensive resurgence.
Well, that and not having silly ol' D'Antoni at coach anymore.
Chandler's one of the best defenders in the NBA and anchors a resurgent Knicks defense. He shot 68% from the field last year, and is shooting 71% from the field this year. The Knicks are 19-6, the best in the east, and the second best in the league.
I guess if we're dreaming, I would rather trade for LeBron or Durant than Chandler.
Don't be that way man. We don't need that **** cluttering this board.
The Knicks aren't gonna dump Chandler anytime soon. They're a contender right now and for the near future. That team would fall apart without Chandler just like the Mavs and the Hornets did.
Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams
Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston
Why are the Knicks dumping salary again?
Anyway if it was clear NYK was pursuing Paul and he had no intention of returning to LA, i would think NYK would end up trading Chandler, Felton and a pick for Paul or something along that line.
I agree w/ 93, the Clippers don't trade Bledsoe for a back-up 5 (I think Jordan still starts if they make the deal w/ us you propose) and a STUGGLING tweener (Henry). And Butler is a good defender that can knock down an open three and is tough a nails.
I like the idea of upgrading at the PG position, but those two assets (Bledsoe and Butler) will cost us more that Lopez and Henry.
http://www.forbes.com/nba-valuations/list/#p_1_s_d5_), want to "dump salary," when they are finally contenders for the first time in what feels like forever? Especially when Tyson Chandler is one of the biggest reasons they are finally contenders. It makes zero sense.
If the Knicks ever need to "dump" Chandler, they could do better than what the Hornets could possibly offer. If you showed this thread to Knicks fans, they would die laughing. Tyson Chandler for Aminu and Henry? It's akin to Lakers fans posting threads about how we'll give them Ryan Anderson for their peanuts.
I don't think my objective, realistic post is what's cluttering the board.

100% agree with greewe.
WTH would the Knicks dump salary of a piece that ignites defense for their team?
Aminu + Henry/Lopez + Henry/Vasquez + Aminu won't amount squat. Aminu may be expiring, but he's riding the bench. We couldn't even dump Kaman last year for anything... and he actually brought value to the team. Henry is BLAH at best.
btw LOL @ Lopez and Henry netting us Butler and Bledsoe.
Pipedreams, at best.
