Knicks looking for a draft pick (warning: Asinine trade idea)

According the twitter-sphere the Knicks are looking to obtain a draft pick in the upcoming draft.

Iman has been discussed on this site in the past as a defensive asset possibility at the 2or 3 spot. Now of course, Shumpert is not worth the #8 alone, but are there some pieces on the Knicks that the Kings could want? I think there could be. Tyson Chandler.

Tyson is the prototypical defensive big that could be a perfect front court pairing with Cousins that we all hope and dream for. His price is steep ($14 million but only one year) and he is on the wrong side of 30 but he brings the veteran leadership and rim protection that this team needs.

The Knicks would obviously need to take back some salary to make thinks work but they could use the cap room in order to address the Carmelo issue. The Kings have small army of bigs that can be given back to the Knicks that may also save them some money.

Now the real question is, would the Kings be willing to give up a possible young talent at the #8 and pieces for the services of Chandler and Shumpert (both on one year deals)? I'm not here to argue one way or the other, but if the Kings are indeed looking to make a push into playoff contention next season, Chandler and Shumpert give you the defensive talents to do it now as opposed to more youth and potential to do it later.

Here are some possible asinine trade scenarios:


Kings get: Chandler and Shumpert

Knicks get: #8, Jason Thompson, and JasonTerry

Why Knicks do it: Total salary dump, possible Terry buyout, serviceable and affordable big in JT and the #8


Kings get: Chandler and Shumpert

Knicks get: #8, Derrick Williams, Quincy Acy, and Jason Terry

Why Knicks do it: Same as #1 but with more youth on shorter deals. It really frees up long term money


Kings get: Chandler and Shumpert

Knicks get: #8, Reggie Evans, Travis Outlaw, Jason Thompson

Why Knicks do it: Because Outlaw...duh.


Kings get: Chandler, Shumpert, and ANDREA BARGNANI!!!!!!!

Knicks get: #8 and anyone they want not named DMC, IT, Gay, Bmac,

Why Knicks do it: Because I'm just fucking with you.

Now in the end I don't think the Knicks are sending Chandler anywhere. He is a negotiating chip in order to retain Carmelo and again, this is asinine.

So what think you???
