Knicks acquire Thomas, Harrington, Mobley

The reshaping New York Knicks depart with Zach Randolph, Jamal Crawford and Mardy Collins today. Crawford goes to the Golden State Warriors in exchange for versatile big man Al Harrington. Meanwhile, Randolph and Collins are now with the Los Angeles Clippers who released Cuttino Mobley and forward Tim Thomas.

Not really an interesting trade to me. It's not one of those wtf trades.hehehe Clearly the Knicks get the best of this deal. Despite losing Jamal and Zach, they've acquired reliable veterans who are more of role players which I think what Mike D'Antoni favors. Moreover, this makes their salary cap in better shape especially come 2010. It's no secret that New York is eager to get Lebron James as his contract expires by 2010.

I wonder what Don Nelson, headcoach of the Warriors is up to. With the departure of Al Harrington, he only has Brandon Wright and Rony Turiaf to rely on at the power forward position. The two are more of off-the-bench type of players at least this season. Getting Jamal Crawford who demands and I would say deserves playing time would certainly tighten their guard rotation especially when Monta Ellis gets back from suspension. At my count, I think they have 8 guards(PG/SG).

On the next trade update, I hope having Cleveland mentioned. *wink

  1. The Knicks are taking drastic change measures to reshape the organization. It's much needed, but it will definitely take time to create a new culture in NY. I like Donny Walsh's thinking though.
