I don't really know how they work the rotation unless Amare just stays hurt. I see this move as having a higher potential of disaster than of success.
Maybe, but I don't recall Novak, Camby or Richardson getting much of any playing time during the Pacers/Knicks series (which, admittedly, was the only time I watched the Knicks this year).
I doubt the 2016 first-round pick will be worth all that much, either. I think this'll work out for the Knicks. They had to do something.
This will be Camby's second stint in a Raptors uniform, assuming he isn't released or decides to retire; he was the second overall pick by the Raptors in the 1996 NBA Draft, and played with the team during its second and third seasons of existence.

As a casual Raptors fan who watched Bargnani "play" for the last few seasons, I'm happy to see him go. I give Knicks fans two games before they lose patience with his guy and his completely non-existent defense.

Carmelo's already displayed the ability to make his teammates better. If he can do the same to Denver and brings them up to 9th or 10th place in the conference, I don't see why Carmelo can't be next year's Rookie of the Year.
