Knicks receptive to Miller-Duhon trade

Posted on: July 11, 2009 6:38 pm
LAS VEGAS -- The Knicks are receptive to overtures from Andre Miller's agent to arrange a sign-and-trade that would swap the free-agent point guard for Chris Duhon, has learned.

Miller's agent, Andy Miller, is pushing for a sign-and-trade to New York in response to the Sixers' lack of interest in bringing the 33-year-old point guard back. The Sixers have expressed a willingness to offer no more than a one-year deal at the $5.9 million mid-level exception. But a person with knowledge of the situation said Philadelphia was lukewarm about even that proposal. The Sixers' brass is ready to move on with Lou Williams at point guard and first-round pick Jrue Holiday backing him up.

The Knicks view Miller as an upgrade over Duhon, a person with knowledge of their plans said. But New York is not willing to go beyond two years on Miller's new contract.

Another team long rumored to have interest in Miller is Portland. But NBA front office sources say the Blazers are not actively pursuing Miller due to their concerns about his age and below-average perimeter shooting.

Knicks receptive to Miller-Duhon trade

Don't anyone get your hopes up about the aforementioned trade.  Obviously (, Portland is far worse off with this trade. Hinrich is no upgrade over Blake (comparable players) and where does Jefferies play?  Pritchard is not going to help another team get better, especially at the expense of his.  The ONLY way this occurs in Portland is if there is another deal in place where pieces acquired in this trade (Jefferies) is moved immediately.  And forget about Portland looking for expiring contracts, I believe both Blake and Pryzbillas' contracts expire after next season.

Apparently they're in love with Hienrich. This is simply an adjustment of a trade that might actually go down. But i meant Tim Thomas. I think it makes Portland worse but Oden will step in for Pryzbilla and apparently they prefer Kirk at the point over Blake in the backcourt with Roy.

As a Bulls fan I love this because I like both Boozer and Przybilla, but I also kind of like the Bulls as they are now.  Also, do you mean Tim Thomas or Tyrus?  I am pretty sure Tyrus is what the Bulls will have to part with.  If Pryz was in it I think the Bulls would have to take the deal because he is underrated as hell.  Utah gets 2 guys with similar skills?  I think Portland loses on this, and suprisingly I think the Knicks get better.  They need a player like Blake and they need a CONSISTANT outside shooter like Korver, James is ehh.  But, overall I think the winners in this are Chi-Town and Utah, the Knicks move sideways, and Portland gets worse. 

Just in case you were wondering, as a Bulls fan, I like Captain Kirk, but aren't the Blazers better with the guards they have now?

Better Trade Options

I know this proposed trade makes the Knicks much worse now but if would make the other team happy and get Jefferies off the team and 3 expiring contracts.

Jerome James (CHI)
Kyle Korver (Utah)
Steve Blake (Portland) Would fit well not as good as Miller but good enough in D'Antonis system especially if playing back up to Duhon

Boozer (Utah)
Przybilla (Portland)

Al Harrington (Knicks)
Tim Thomas (Chicago)

Hinrich (Chicago)
Jefferies (Knicks)

What do you all think?

Knicks receptive to Miller-Duhon trade

If the Philadelphia 76ers do a sign-and-trade deal with the New York Knicks that wouldn't be all that bad. Andre Miller is a good point guard that brings alot of savvy and leadership, but his age and asking price will eventually be his downfall when dealing with the Sixers front office. Chris Duhon is a better 3-point shooter than Miller and the incumbent Lou Williams. Willams' assist-to-turnover ratio is terrible for a point guard and the rookie Jrue Holiday is currently to raw to start in the NBA. Duhon knows how to run a team and his outside shooting won't hurt in Eddie Jordan's motion offense. Anything is better than what the Sixers plan to do right now, which is go with Williams and back him up with Holiday.

Knicks receptive to Miller-Duhon trade

As a Knicks fan i can't say that I would like this move. Miller would be a good fit in a lot of places but not in New York. The Knicks rely to much on transition points and good shooting, Miller is a good physical guard who would be great for a half court team. Detroit might want to think about going after him, Ben Gordon won't be their pg and I have my doubts about Stuckey.

The only advantage is age... Duhon COULD develop into a much better player (doubtful), whereas Miller has pretty much had his chance.. He will not get much better or much worse.

I think 76ers are looking to rebuild, so they are going to try and get younger, not sign aging players to long term deals.. I don't blame them for not wanting to commit to Andre Miller.
