Love the recent trade for Hawks. Schroeder is one of the more overrated players in the NBA -- and quite possibly the NBA's worst defensive point guard, regardless of his measurables and athelticism.
Quintessential type of trade for the Knicks. Although they got out of Noah (a previous mistake), they aren't going anywhere with Schroeder, and now their cupboard of assets is bare.
If NYK doesn't make the playoffs this year (more a likelihood than a stretch), this trade could be disastrous. Far too risky for my liking. Great trade for Atlanta.
It may be risky, but I also think with Wall out for a few months and Kemba getting traded, the Knicks have a decent shot at making the playoffs as a 6-8 seed, with a lot of young pieces as well going forward (including the newly acquired, Randle).
But I mean, this is a mock trade deadline (mock world), so who knows
That said, it does seem like the Knicks want to get rid of Noah and they are tired not only of his contract, but his attitude lol. Getting rid of him was never going to be easy.
Good move for ATL, not the sexiest move for NYK but understandably so.
