The New York Knicks and the Golden State Warriors have made a deal. Jamal Crawford goes to the Bay Area for Al Harrington. Yes, that's right, a straight up swap. I guess I am a little lost as to why either team would make this deal, so let's take a look at why.
Golden State - They get rid of their only veteran big man who can score, rebound, and play a little defense. They bring in another gunner to go along with the already high maintenance Steven Jackson. Jamal Crawford hasn't met a shot that he didn't like, going all the way back to his days at Michigan. The Warriors at least have a system that involves some defense, and that's another thing Crawford hasn't proven he can play.
New York - The Knicks have been on this, 'we're cutting costs to get LBJ here in 2010' and then they go and do this. This would have been a lot better if the player going out had a last name of Curry or Randolph. Right now they are starting Chris Duhon and Crawford together in the backcourt. After the trade, their starting backcourt is going to have to change because they can't have Duhon and Lil Nate in the backcourt because I could post post of them up. The Knicks still have some business to deal with named Marbury, Randolph, and Curry. Donnie Walsh has to have another plan up his sleeve.
Was this a good trade? Which team will be better?
