The Knicks are financially strapped, but that doesn’t mean they can afford to stand pat and not make any roster changes. The Miami Heat will be the Miami Heat again next year, and the Pacers, Bulls and Nets will all be relevant.
The Knicks decided to shake things up and make a move for former number one overall pick, Andrea Bargnani from Toronto.
I expect there to be more deals coming down the pike from New York.
[T]he Knicks are closing in on a deal to acquire Andrea Bargnani, the Toronto Raptors’ jump-shooting 7-footer, according to a person involved in the talks.
The Knicks are offering a package built around Marcus Camby, Steve Novakand two future draft picks, one in the first round and one in the second. Several teams have pursued Bargnani, but the Knicks have emerged as the “strong favorites” to land him, and a handshake deal could come soon, the person said.
