Tyrus Thomas, David Lee soon to be available?

i was reading on hoopshype today that David “Double-Double” Lee and Tyrus “Double T” Thomas could be on the block before the trade deadline. Neither is a legit 7 footer but I’m intrigued by both. Lee is a rebounding machine something we desperately need. Tyrus Thomas, while I don’t think he’ll ever live up to his high draft pick, could be an adequate replacement for K-Mart for the future if he could turn into that intimidating force. Thomas reminds me a lot of K-Mart actually. As you might have noticed, I am proposing we try to get both and build for the future. A frontline of Lee, Thomas and Nene along with Melo at the SF and perhaps an aging KMart could be devastating. It might be unrealistic on a lot of levels – tis a lot of mouths to feed, but I wonder if it’s possible.

The Knicks just want expiring contracts and because Lee is a base year player they can only take back half of his salary, which would be 3.5 million. Malik Allen and AC or a trade exception would more or less fill that need.

Thomas would be harder. The bulls aren’t going to give him a way for nothing but if we could bring in a third team who has someone they want to get rid of in exchange for a trade exception, that could work too. The bulls, I believe, are looking for some outside shooting a la ben gordon. Perhaps a three team trade where the bulls get DuQuan Cook and a pick for the Nuggets, the heat get a trade exception or expiring contracts to be free agent players and the Nuggets pick up Thomas. I’m not sitting here with the salaries so I don’t know how it plays out. I also no Cook doesn’t = Thomas so probably somebody slightly better than Cook, perhaps Randy Foye! oh that is a lovely idea. bulls get foye, wiz get much needed cap relief and nuggies get Thomas. Thoughts?
