NYK sending Steve Francis and Channing Frye to Portland for Zach Randolph, Dan Dickau and Fred Jones. Good move for both sides.
Portland would have three quality bigs in Oden, Aldridge and Frye to play along with Francis and Brandon Roy. Although I don’t see Portland holding onto Francis. He can be a nice addition, a veteran that the Blazers need to try to make the playoffs this year. But he also has a lot of baggage that could rub off on a young roster. Is he worth the risk?
Meanwhile, the Knicks would have a nice lineup of Eddy Curry, Zac Randolph, Quentin Richardson, Jamal Crawford and Stephon Marbury. Are the Knicks back?
