Marty Burns: Francis close to making Broadway debut

SI.com is saying Francis for Crawford and Maurice Taylor.

Ugh. Please no. Questionable talent and no cap relief.

    This deal probably makes the least since salary wise,but basketball wise it makes the most,you bring in crawford,he's a bigger version of keyon,with three point range,you could send keyon somewhere for draft picks,and let jameer and carlos run the point,while deshawn and jamal man the two,hedo and grant at the three,three man rotation at your big forwards,dwight,tony & darko,thats nine real good players in my opinion!

    But you still have to pay Taylor $9.5 million next year taking the team out of looking for Mid-Level Exemption help.

    I'd much prefer Hardaway's contract plus Lee or Ariza. Or Hardaway/Crawford/Lee for Francis, Dooling, Augmon & Outlaw type trade.

    45 hours and counting before the deadline.

    I agree weR about taylor,i'd much rather have hardaway's contract also,but c'mon HARDAWAY,do you really think otis would do it to coach hill? I would,and i'd tell them both in a meeting that this is a new situation,so be men about it,and move on!

    Hardaway is never leaving home again. Whoever takes him is likely to cut him and pay him.

    But it would be funny to have him join the team long enough to call a team meeting...

    I am not so sure about Crawford, and I certainly don't want Taylor's contract. Richardson and Hardaway's expiring contract is the only option that makes that trade attractive. Taylor's contract is not that much lower than Odom's and with Odom you get a hell of a team player. Read Whit Watson's article, again. He thinks Odom could give Brian Hill hard times when he has to, but in a positive way.

    It's halftime,and already in the first half coach hill is playing pat way to much,and why did he take darko out? BSHILL is killing us,play darko,not pat!

    garrity is definitly BSHill's go-to guy, the entire player rotation revolves around garrity. he subs for everyone. i've come to dispise the sight of garrity. Darko looked pretty good for the short time we saw him, Arroyo looked good also, again, what little we saw of him at the end of the game. we keep hearing that we are gonna see what Darko can do and that he will be given a chance to prove himself, yeah right, with BSH running the show he may see the same amount of time on the floor as Deeener. playing anyone else to much would significantly cut down of garritys time and i don't know if bsh would go for that.

    i'm afraid at this point in the season that bsh is gonna play who he wants to play and it wouldn't matter if we aquired lebron, kobe, iverson, and duncan, we'd still see garrity on the floor for 30 minutes a game. bsh is a narrow minded, ignorant, controling tirant who has no basketball IQ whatsoever.. i'd trade for hardaways's contract, then resign him to another multi-year deal as bsh's assistant or gm just to piss him off...

    The way Dooling is playing, whether at PG or SG, he should be safe from any trading talks.

    As a Knicks fan, I think this is one of the biggest deals that both side's fans do not want to happen. Francis is much better than any play we are giving you guys but he is about the same player as Steph.

    Basically, we can all cringe together.

    I tend to agree this would be a lose-lose deal for both sides. I welcome Dan, as well.
