W/ McGee its typical contract negotiation just like in every sport. He asks for 14 million he gets DeAndre Jordan like money at about 10 million a year. He asks for 10 million at the start of negotiations then he gets 7.5 million.
Personally I hope we get rid of this knucklehead.We will probably keep him so we should actually get a big man coach on the coaching staff.
I want to see that money go to Eric Gordon and hope we can get him away from the Hornets, then draft Harrison Barnes. Booker is looking like he can become a big man of the future its just his 6'8 frame hurts him.
'Antoni, the source said, had been advocating that the Knicks attempt to trade Anthony to the New Jersey Nets for guard Deron Williams, a deal D'Antoni believed would be beneficial for both franchises. But Dolan categorically declined that request, and the “conflicting visions” between the owner and head coach about Anthony meant there was no way forward.
D'Antoni had hoped the Knicks' inspired and winning play with Lin as the centerpiece — while Anthony and Stoudemire were injured — would convince Dolan the Knicks could win without Anthony. Bringing Williams from the Nets would also have eases the burden on Lin, D'Antoni believed, allowing Lin to settle into a three-guard rotation.
That wasn't a bad idea at all. It was obvious Melo didn't fit that system, really it was a bunch of odd fits. No guarantee Deron would have re-signed with them though. Deron would be pretty beastly in that system.

Say what ya want, but its true. I hope they just trade him to get it over with. If someone demands a trade/retires in sports I hate seeing month long speculations. Its annoying, and you know the same crap will turn up next year.
