For that much money though? (with the $1.75 for every dollar spent luxury tax)

Sure. He's going to generate far more revenue than he's going to cost you. He's also 23, and currently a better player than both of those guys. Worst comes to worst, you have a $15M expiring contract that you need to deal in '14. There was so much that NYK could have done between now and then to avoid it ever coming to that point, IMO.

if rashard lewis and gilbert arenas contracts can be moved, any contract can be moved. they could have traded someone away by that time in order to get under the tax
