Should Knicks wait or trade for him now?

The question is always being that the Knicks don't want to give up role players for Melo. Why trade for him if you can get him in FA? Why give up the talent if you don't have to. I do understand where the Knicks are coming from, but come on. Role players are replaceable. You can go out in FA and get them or trade for them. It does amaze me that the Knicks are not willing to take the risk. No guaranttee that Melo won't decide to sign that three year deal before the new CBA. He may be willing to give up x amount of dollars for the organization, but they won't give up role players for Melo? A guy like Melo is hard to find. He is a superstar and one of the best offensive players in the NBA. Would he instantly make an impact if he joined the Knicks? To me without a doubt he would which is why I still can't understand why they arn't willing to give up 2 or 3 role players for Melo. Knicks to me currently are just a playoff contender....not a championship contender. They get Melo they would be in a lot of folks opinions as a championship contender. How can you disagree with that? If I had an organization like the Knicks, I would trade for him without question. What would you rather have.....a championship now or later? Yea you could wait and have all these role players with Melo, but that isn't a promise. He still could sign a deal just for the fact he is leaving a lot of money on the table if he doesn't. Melo has been holding out of that contract all season for the Knicks. Can they do not do him a favor and trade for him? Get his paycheck he wants so he will be happy, your organization will be happy, Knick fans will be happy, and NBA fans in general will be happy cuz all the talk is over with. LOL! Everyone would benefit from this. Why take a risk on losing out on Melo for role players that are replaceable?

I just wanted to give my opinion on the Melo situation. Any comments on my opinion? What is your opinion on what Knicks should do?

Melo to the Knicks?

Melo informed Nuggets he will not sign the deal that was on the table unless he is traded to the Knicks. He wants to a Knick. How many times have we heard that in the last decade. I think this might be one of the very few have said this with his star power anyway. How will Knicks pull this off? Ball is really in their court. Are the Nuggets not gonna trade him and get nothing. I don't think so personally. I think he is becoming more of a distraction to the Nuggets. Which the team really doesn't need right now. I'm sure Nugget fans are upset with his decision. I am as well as a Magic fan. I had hopes on the Magic getting him via trade. They have good pieces to make a trade more so than the Knicks or the Nets. Knicks will need a third team. Well at least Nuggets hope they get a third team involved to get what they want. Other than Amare their team is garbage. No offense to Felton. Knicks have exceeded expectations thus far. Knick fans should be very happy their team is finally winning basketball games. Which is a plus cuz of the famous arena they play in. Make some more history in it. Nuggets really have no choice in this. They trade him by the deadline which will be best for their team. He will only be a distraction. He may fake injuries to not play for the Nuggets if they don't. I highly doubt if they keep Melo they will win a championship anyways. I say get some value for Melo. Hope for your sake it isn't little. Hope Magic gets a scorer. Prefer a point guard that can also pass. In any case good luck to both Melo and the Nuggets. Been a good run....hope they arn't as bad as the Cavs are without their superstar. Surprised??SurprisedDon't be......STAY JEALOUS!!!Cool
