    Knicks to trade up for Brackins?

    According to this report, the Knicks have Craig very high on their draft board and are trying to move into the first round to get him.

    Craig would be a great fit for Mike D'antoni's offense and system as a whole where he could play as the "undersized pf".

    Re: Knicks to trade up for Brackins?

    I just really want to see him taken in the first round to a good team. He has done way too much to be taken in the second round.

    He would be a nice replacement for Al Harrington.

    Re: Knicks to trade up for Brackins?

    I'd feel bad for Craig if he had to play for the Knicks. They once were quite a proud organization and they've been nothing short of a train wreck the past decade or so. They put all their eggs into the LeBron basket this summer which I think is going to blow up in their face and they'll be stuck having to scramble for "Plan B" options. The only way I see David Lee back with them too is if they strike out on a bunch of guys and are forced to offer him a max contract just so they have something to show for all that cap space. The rest of their roster is a joke. The only players under contract are: Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, Toney Douglas, and Eddy Curry. Hardly an impressive cast there and even if they got both LeBron and Bosh to sign they'd essentially have to sign about 6 or more players to minimum salary contracts just to fill out the roster.

    Re: Knicks to trade up for Brackins?

    I think CB on the Knicks would be great. Big stage. I also think he would thrive in that offense.

    While they have been bad for a while, I think they are going to be making positive steps. Plus CB playing in MSG? I would make a trip to see that.

    Re: Knicks to trade up for Brackins?

    The more I read, the more I think we'll see CB go between 20-30 tonight. The Wiz at #30 like him too much for Craig to fall into the 2nd round. Before he's available to them, there's a handful of teams in the 20s that are increasingly interested.

    The problem the Knicks face in getting him is they have very little to offer in terms of moving up. #38 & #39 hold very little bargaining power.

    I think CB on the Thunder team would be a very good fit. Even the Spurs or Timberwolves might be a good fit, there are a lot of teams picking in the 20's that he'd fit on well.

    Agreed on the Knicks, unless some team wants Eddy Curry's expiring contract because they really have nothing under contract right now that someone wants to trade for and most teams are trying to shed salary not add it this offseason.

    Jeff Goodman from Foxsports.com has Brackins as his biggest "sleeper".

    Good point about Curry's contract. I forgot about that.

    As long as they don't misuse him the way the Bulls misused Fizer, Brackins would be a great fit for the Knicks

    So he is going to play with LeBron? oh wait now LeBron is going to the Bulls, or staying with the Cavs, or its changed to the Heat...its so hard to keep up with that.
