Knicks, Nuggets talk on Udrih, but no deal

1:41 p.m.: The Nuggets have traded Jordan Hamilton to Houston for Aaron Brooks (Wojnarowski)


1:15 p.m.: The Knicks talked about trading Beno Udrih to the Nuggets for Jordan Hamilton (Stein).

Denver seemed to be the only team still interested in trading for Udrih (Berman), but the Nuggets are talking to other teams about Hamilton (Wojnarowski). The Wizards were reportedly interested in Udrih on Wednesday.

Udrih hasn’t played at all since January 24 and has just 11 minutes under his belt since January 17.

There were rumors that Udrih asked the Knicks for a trade earlier this season.

This is really unfortunate. Udrih has done nothing for the Knicks and moving him for some depth at another position would have made a lot of sense. While we don’t know how far the talks got, hopefully Steve Mills didn’t blow his first potential player move by asking for too much.

Wish the Knicks could have found a way to get an asset back for Udrih. But I'm glad we didn't sell Shump for pennies on the dollar. I can't see his value getting much lower than it is right now. Making a trade out of desperation is never a good idea. Hopefully we can make a little run and at least get into the playoffs.

How do you suck as bad as the Knicks have this season and make no improvements. They really had no real plan outside of fantasies of getting Rondo. So lame.

Back to Felton chucking up "floaters" that end up being nowhere near the hoop. Beno requested a trade the first week of the season and is still here. Melo just cried a little.

This is the beginning of the end.  Say goodbye to Melo.  Enjoy him while you can fellas.

If I was Melo I would walk away because the Knicks front office have shown time and time again they can be relied on to fail. I really don't imagine KLove or Rondo making it to the Big Apple in a Knicks uni. Everyone with half a brain knew Mills was in over his head.

Superman is not coming to save us. We have to fight this with our assembled bunch.  

This was fun.  I prefer to make no trade rather than making a bad trade. 

There is no time limit to get rid of Woody. That can still be done. 

Go Knicks!

As Charlie Brown would say, "Lets look into the brown bag and see what I got?"

Raymand Felton  10.2 ppg 5.8 assist 69% ft 29% 3pt 39% FG 32.4 mins per game

Darren Collison     10.1 ppg  3.6 assist 86% ft 37% 3pt 46% FG 23 mins per game

Player comparison. Just so we fans know what we may get with Collison compared to Felton. Also Collison is much quicker and a better defender.

@SheSaidSpikeWho Melo gets us to the playoffs this year and compete well int he 1st round, he would have done his job int he 2nd half of the season. 

Next season, with STATues in his last year, we start to field offers to help Melo or let STATues go off the book at the end of the year if we can't get anything good.

@Elvis Maduro In all honestly, what trade could we have made without making it worse for Melo to get the help he needs later?

If we can't get a top PG, then why go with a slightly better than Felton one?

If they agree on principle, they can have some time to get all the paperwork into the NBA offices.

@Kiyan Carter  The thing is, it shouldn't be just about getting better than Felton. That shouldn't be what we're striving for.

@rgm891  Just because it hit 3 doesn't mean we didn't trade anyone. Deals gotta be processed and ish relax for a few.

@Knicks_Fanatic  Dolan's wanted him gone all year.  As much as I agree with you, I see this happening.  Very foolish.

@xmenreturn @Elvis Maduro  I agree. We probably couldn't make any good trades. When your organization is known as the organization that always gets fleeced in trades, it's hard to turn that reputation around. Knicks were already behind the 8-ball on that one. If we hired a well-respected GM, maybe things could turn around.

@SheSaidSpikeWho We had days to dream and have fun. Let's enjoy that!  I sure did.  

Can't believe we didn't get Parker and Duncan for Felton and Chandler though.  I thought that was why Pop didn't play them the last game.

@Kiyan Carter  Collison wasn't making much of a difference for us. Don't make a move just to make it. No I don't want to see Felton at all lol. If we could move Felton straight up for Collison then do it. Don't give up Shump in the process just to rid ourselves of Felton with a back up coming back to be our starter.
