Here's the deal: this is not likely at all.

He'd been playing poorly and has a bad contract and had unfortunately burned bridges with the fanbase and local media as well as, if rumor is true, the locker room. Most importantly Jimmy Butler. There's lingering speculation that Butler and Rose didn't like playing together.

But I think there's a pretty good chance you don't even know who Jimmy Butler is so I'm not sure why I'm talking to you about the NBA.

I don't know who that is, but I am interested to hear all that.

So fuck you.

He's on the Bulls. Good player. He may or may not be dating Shay Mitchell who is one of the most beautiful women on the planet. Cool guy.

So if Rose sucks we have more flexibility in 2017, another draft pick, and a young guy for the bench.

Lopez is easily replaceable, and if Hornacek's plan is to go up tempo that means going small, with Melo at the 4 and Porzingis at the 5, so Lopez wouldn't even be a starter, anyways.

Even Isola, who takes every possible opportunity to knock the Knicks, sees this as a low risk, high reward move.

Seriously? Damn, good on him.

I'm a big fan of Butler. Dude is tough as nails and brings 100% every minute of every game. His early life is a great story about getting through adversity too.

I just don't see the high reward at all. He averaged 40 games a season for the last 4 seasons. He hasn't had a good season since 2011-12. Getting an above average season from Rose would be 95 percentile stuff.

This is the least pessimistic take I can go with:

So even if you don't see the potential for high reward, it is still a low risk move that does little to hurt them in the short term and sets them up further in the long term.

If anything, it further shows that Jackson has abandoned his triangle dreams and will allow Hornacek to install a more up tempo offense. They have plenty of cap space to sign a center that can replace Lopez at a low cost.

Lopez is a backup center on a contender, or a fugazi starter like Bogut. Losing him is no big deal.

I thought the only person who could possibly be as upset about Robin Lopez leaving NYC as gump is would be Brooks Lopez.
