Finding a 3rd team

The New York Knicks have been in search of a 3rd team to facilitate a trade that would send Carmelo Anthony to the Clippers. With the help of ESPN trade machine I found three teams that would help us complete this trade. *ESPN TRADE MACHINE DOES NOT INCLUDE DRAFT PICKS*

 

1.   76ers

The Knicks would now own the second and fourth pick in the 2015 draft class, which should help them with their rebuild. Rivers and Stauskas would add some much-needed youth to the club as well.

Okafor- 11.2 PPG 4.8 TRB 1.0 AST

Rivers- 11.9 PPG 2.0 TRB 2.6 AST

Stauskas- 8.5 PPG 2.5 TRB 2.0 AST

2. Kings

Adding Cauley-Stein would give the Knicks two players from the very deep draft of 2015. Rivers and Johnson would just be thrown in to match salaries, however they should add a punch to the Knicks bench.

Cauley-Stein- 4.5 PPG 2.3 TRB 0.3 AST

Rivers- 11.9 PPG 2.0 TRB 2.6 AST

Johnson- 3.2 PPG 3.5 TRB 0.5 AST

3.  Bucks

The Bucks may be giving up a lot in this trade but they have been looking for guard improvement for the past two years. The Knicks add a low post threat in Monroe as well as Brogdon who has looked like a steal for the Bucks. Snell and Rivers add youth and defense to the club.

Monroe- 11.0 PPG 6.8 TRB 2.2 AST

Rivers- 11.9 PPG 2.0 TRB 2.6 AST

Snell- 8.1 PPG 3.4 TRB 1.3 AST

Brogdon- 9.1 PPG 2.7 TRB 4.1 AST
