Knicks might be able to keep Melo and sign Kevin Love?

It's possible but I'm not sure if they could pull it off, if they did and could bring Amare off the bench, Love and Chandler could out rebound a lot of teams, I'd like to see it

    Amare and Melo will make $23.4M each next season. Tyson Chandler $14.5M. Bargnani $12M.

    Based off the 8 guaranteed contracts and assuming Melo & Amare exercise there player option Knicks are already at $91M which is way over the cap space. Kevin Love makes $15.7M. No way they can afford him unless they can find someone who wants to pay chandler $14.5M

    First of all they will have to give up someone to get Love and second the Knicks do not have the cap space and third Phil looks like he wans the max money for himself but does not want to play max money for his team and he already mention to Melo about possible taking less money and even offering less money for kerr to coach

    No, it's not possible. They are over the cap with their frontcourt already.

    Don't be a delusional Knicks fan: stay educated on your team and the ins-and-outs of their financial situation.

    Not With Tyson, Amar're and Bargnani. They have too many big guys and alot of contracts that they regret offering.
