Rumor: Tyson Chandler and Amar’e Stoudemire for Dwight Howard?
Any questions ya’ll have about my report on D-Howard/Amar’e/Chandler…please listen in to the show NOW! I will NOT keep repeating myself.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: It’s no surprise the Orlando Magic tested the trade waters with the New York Knicks, proposing a Dwight Howard for Tyson Chandler and Amar’e Stoudemire swap.
The Knicks, who believed they’d contend, have struggled early on. Superstars Carmelo Anthony and Stoudemire aren’t clicking. Coach Mike D’Antoni is on the hot seat. And the Madison Square Gardens masses are restless.
Translation: the Knicks are vulnerable, especially without a wise, veteran executive in the front office to preach patience and/or give D’Antoni a vote of confidence.
Would the Knicks be better with Howard instead of Chandler and Stoudemire?
Well, perhaps. Problem is, they’d still have Carmelo Anthony firing away from the outside and refusing to facilitate for teammates.
Until Anthony’s game becomes more balanced, it won’t matter who the Knicks have at center or power forward.
