Wow. Couldn't have said it better myself. After reading through this thread I was about to post pretty much what you just said. Thanks for saving me the time

Superstars don't become available often in the NBA, and we got arguably one of the top 10 players in the game for a bargain. Felton was a stop-gap player until we could get Deron or CP3, he wasn't in the teams future plans. Chandler probably wasn't going to be back after this season. Gallo plays the same position as Melo, and Melo is a huge upgrade. And Mozgov has potential but hardly has shown anything outside a game or two this season.

Not to mention we also get back Billups who is as good if not better than Felton, as well as Brewer who will be a solid guy off the bench.

The team is still a huge work in progress, but we're better with Melo and Stat as building blocks than Stat and some average pieces.
