Shock NYK Trade today

http://www.nba.com/knicks/news/ewing_080829_trade.html

Being a Knick fan this trade is very Strange. The knicks acquired Patrick Ewing JR from the Rockets today. Not only is the name a little interesting as his father spent many years played for the knicks. The knicks gave up draft rights to player they darft 9 years ago and he never came to the NBA. At this point i don't think he is even playing basketball.. lol The player the knicks gave up was the infamous Frederic Weis. very intersting trade, but i think the knicks got the better of it..

Interesting....I don't know what they are hoping out of this guy, but he won't be nearly as good as his dad if that's what they are banking on...

Yup no kidding.. its kind of why i posted it but yet some of these NBA trades amaze me just to dump Salary. Nobody ever gets talent back when they make these trades. hell I would have thought the Rights to Wies would have been worth a whole lot more, they could have gotten a couple of 1 round picks along with Ewing lol

what makes me sick right now is how all these teams are basically selling off the next years so they can MAYBE get lebron/wade/bosh..I can't wait til 2010 comes so we can see teams get back to trying to win now.
