Draft Day Shake-Up

Isaiah Thomas made a bold move today acquiring Zach Randolph and some cap fodder in exchange for Stevie Francis (dead weight) and Channing Frye (maddeningly inconsistent in his 2 seasons).

How often do you land a premier offensive big man in his prime for a salary dump and a prospect? Excellent deal for the Knicks.

Two potential pratfalls:

- There's a chance that Randolph, legitimately insane, will snap like a twig in New York; and

- There's only one ball and a lot of shooters on this team. Curry and Randolph in the low post? Marbury? Crawford? How do they all share?

Still you have to love this deal if you are a Knicks fan.

I do need to see the Jones/Dickau cap numbers though.....

  • great deal. if it fails they're no worse off. if it works they've got a really potent offense.

  • Agreed. Also happen to love the Demetrious Nichols pick in round 2. He was a legit 20 point shooter for a Big East team. I think he can play in the NBA.

  • I miss your other writing. Are you ever going to write about anything other than sports, again?
