Obviously this trade would have to happen after Mikki is allowed to be traded, and now why each does it.
Knicks: They need to clear cap space and Donnie Walsh knows it. This trade gives them over 10 million dollars extra in cap space for this upcoming free agent period. They are actually a contender to get Lebron and if they are able to do that, they may also be able to sign another star like a Bosh or Amare. Maggette is actually probally the best player in this deal even though most of us can't stand him and he would become their 6th man. They have become tired of Nate Robinson and are making him ride the pine.
Warriors: First off the Warriors get out of the real long term deal of Maggette and make most their contracts end in 2011. Unless another Trade happens the only players the Warriors would have under Contract would be Ellis, Stephen Curry, Biedrins and whoever the lottery pick is this year. We would also for sure be done with Nelson and in position to actually change this culture of losing by the bay. Wilson Chandler is a solid player and Jared Jeffries would fit our style of play currently.
I try to find another team Maggette makes sense for and I couldn't. And I would love to hear some comments on this trade idea.
