Knicks gave up the 12th, 13th and 14th guy on the roster (assuming Gadzuric is 15th). they can get equal or better production from free agents that can be had for minimum deals. the 2nd round picks are the incentive for Houston to agree to the S&T, because the players they got back are just salary fillers.
bottom-line: Knicks are "all in" for the next 3 years. Toney Douglas and Jorts won't put this team over the top, but Kidd and Camby might.
Alan along with a few others here also get it..

why do we give up so much for a 38 old Camby?” What is so much? You’d rather have those three than Camby?
