A deal involving Dwight Howard to the Knicks would solely rely on if New York can shore up some of the money owed to their veteran players.
Chauncey Billups would either have to be moved or re-sign a deal for about half of the $14.2 million he is making now, while a couple other minor moves will need to be made to free up cap space for Howard’s presumably large contract.
With the addition of Howard to the Knicks, New York will be able to give the new-look Heat a dose of their own "big-time" medicine.
Trotting out Melo, Amare, and Howard every day, plus Billups, Landy Fields, Toney Douglas, Andy Rautins and Renaldo Balkman filling in the holes on a daily basis, these new-look Knicks could do some serious damage in the East.
Howard would also help the Knicks with one of their biggest weaknesses—defense.
By adding the two-time Defensive Player of the Year to their lineup, Coach D’Antoni will be able to use Amare at the strong forward position while being comfortable with Howard’s presence down low.
This could be an all-around great acquisition for the Knicks and their loyal fans.
