D’Antoni Advocated Trading Carmelo For Williams

When Mike D'Antoni and the Knicks agreed to part ways today, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports heard the two sides had "conflicting visions of the club's future." TNT's David Aldridge expands on that point on's Hang Time Blog, saying that D'Antoni wanted the Knicks to explore trading Carmelo Anthony for Deron Williams.

According to Aldridge, D'Antoni believed such a deal would've been beneficial for both franchises, and that adding Williams to the Knicks would've eased the pressure placed on Jeremy Lin. James Dolan, however, had no interest in dealing Carmelo, and he and D'Antoni agreed to terminate D'Antoni's position after meeting today.

While the idea isn't one that had been rumored at all, it's probably one the Nets would've liked to explore, if Dwight Howard remains with the Magic for next season, as is now expected. If Howard isn't ticketed for Brooklyn this summer, the chances of Williams remaining a Net may take a huge hit.

    So D’Antoni realized what everyone out side of new York and espn already figured out. Lin is not very good. That trade makes too much sense for both teams. To bad Dolan has no clue what he is doing

      I think he’d be better utilized at the 2. He’s not a shooter though.

        by not a shooter you mean not a very good basketball player right?…

        yes we all know he had that amazing week but it was against some of the leagues worst defenses and derek fisher. But once he played against real defenses and teams started game planning for him we all saw why he was cut twice in the same year. Is he horrible? no is he amazing? not even close…

        he would be a great back up point guard, but he should not be starting he turns the ball over way to much

          He can penetrate very well. I’d put him at the two and let him isolate when he gets the ball. He turns it over too much to control it himself.

  2. Luke means “expound” surely, right?

    if u threw in lin and brooks the knicks= number 4 team in the NBA
