I largely agree.  But if the cost of Butler is just Tim Jr., Lance and a heavily protected 1st rounder, say Top 10 this year, Top 5 next.  I'm in.
Sure I'd worry about how it affects team chemistry, and why Butler has become difficult last two teams.  And the contract re-up. 
But suddenly the Knix would have two Top 20 NBA talents, plus a potentially studly pup in Knox, and another high top 10 pick coming.
I mean that's an instant team.
And in the playoffs next year, once KZ is fully back.
Then the clear focus is on getting a quality PG.
With KZ & Butler, we'd be a viable FA destination, with Kyrie or whoever as possibilities.
Add a good PG and NYK is vying for playoff homecourt in the weakened East.



And yes, Dunn was a washout in MINN.
Zach LeV was coming off an ACL op and has been a terrible defender, and looking for a new big contract.
And a #1 pick mid-late lotto is a crapshoot.  Maark looks good. 
Fits the modern game real well, and has more toughness than you'd expect.

Enes Kanter?
Someone Id happily ship out to make room for Jimmy Butler.

Forgive them Lord, for they know not what they do.

Actually not the worst idea.....

I say this because it has been said that Thibs wants to compete this year - doesnt want to have a lesser chance of making the top 4-5-6 in the West by dealing JB

Kanter would surely add some - as losing Butler diminishes.  And of course you then add to that (more from NY) in picks or whatever

No idea

I do know he would be one of their top 7-8 players- and that he would be productive

Sucky thing to do to Enes though - he loves NY

Dunn in his second year was about what some of you feel Frank can be (went from an 8 PER toa  14+)

16 games cores of 15+ - in 52 games

Trend is up.  Will it plateau?  We shall see.

I liekLavine a bit more than Biz does but he makes a good point about the comeback from in jury

THOUGH - ine NBA Radio analyst this weeks ays he expects Heyward "fully back".

Different injury, true ....... but maybe these world class athletes do get "back"so much easier than us mere mortals.

(Microfracture is the one that most guys never become what they were.  Even Daniel Murphy in MLB has had this occur)
