Knicks trades are complete. It's a 3-team deal w/Dallas and Washington. NY sends Turiaf, 2013 2nd-rd pick and cash to Wizards.
Knicks acquire Chandler, plus rights to Ahmad Nivins and Giorgos Printezis. Mavs get Andy Rautins and protected 2012 2nd-rd pick from Wiz
-per Beck on twitter.

Hmmm... I don't get it. Must have to do with the new CBA, but if you're doing a S&T with Dallas, why do you need to move Turiaf? And Turiaf is a serviceable player on a not-too-terrible contract. Why do you need to pay cash (something you can only do once per year under the new rules) and a 2nd (as if we hadn't given up enough picks already) to get WSH to take him?

I mean, at the end of the day, I'm not complaining, because the team comes out with Chandler and the roster is rock solid, but for the question of PG. But still... seems like we wasted assets unnecessarily, no?
