    Default Lee + $5.5mill Trade Exception? Where Do We Sign?

    Lee has now met with Chicago, Miami and Minnesota, but he has been proceeding with the understanding that the Toronto Raptors could be his ultimate destination if Chris Bosh decides to go to New York. The Raptors are amenable to such a deal, and the salaries would not have to match because Toronto would be trading Bosh into open cap space. If they got Lee at an $11 million starting salary, the Raptors would also gain a $5.5 million trade exception, and Bosh would get a sixth year on his deal and 10.5 percent annual raises, increasing the value of his contract by $30 million.

    The key to everything is James, of course, and the Knicks have told James he can bring along whichever big man he chooses, be it Amare Stoudemire, Bosh, Lee or Carlos Boozer.

    We don't sign.

    Lee stinks defensively. He is the last thing we need. We will never solve our league-worst defense if we add players that are not above average defenders.

    Besides, do we really need another PF, if you take a look at our current roster? Or is Lee gonna be a centre?

    I would rather let Bosh walk or trade him to another team.

    However to trade Bargnani for Lee would work for me

    By taking Lee for Bosh the problem is

    Now you have

    Lee
    Bargnani
    Johnson
    Davis

    Not enough minutes to go around. You only want a three man rotation between your #4 and #5. Giving Davis and Johnson only 13-15 min a game just won't cut it.

    It seems quite clear that Stoudemire has the PF position with the Knicks so Bosh will probably be going elsewhere. Lee will also have to go elsewhere.

    Haven't half the people here shown what a horrible idea it would be to have Lee? Do we really need to continue to go over this?

    Im pretty sure, there will be a third team involved that would bring us a guard instead of landing us Lee. (possibly barbosa?)
