Knicks make moves for LeBron


Jay has to be pissed right.  With the Nets not heading to Brooklyn any time soon, the Knicks now look to be the future home for LeBron James.  Donnie Walsh made two deals today: trading Jamal Crawford to Golden State for forward Al Harrington and Zach Randolph & Mardy Collins to the Clippers for Tim Thomas and Cuttino Mobley.  Reasoning?  ESPN.com breaks it down:

All three of the players coming to the Knicks — Harrington, Thomas and Mobley — have contracts which expire before the highly anticipated free-agent summer of 2010, when the likes of LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade are expected to be on the open market.

According to Steven A. Smith on the 6pm SportsCenter, in 2010 the Knicks will have enough cap space that they could bring both LeBron and Dwyane Wade.  I haven’t heard anyone else say that, so take it with a grain of salt, but damn.  I hate the Knicks, but I would definitely buy some tickets in 2010 if they were both here.
