NYK are in "win now" mode; high draft picks in a weak draft are not what they're in the market for.
As much as I would like to see the Knicks get juiced....
The Knicks are simply looking to loose Amare and any trades they make is likely to (1) aquire a PG and (2) shed Amare and his contract for cap relief.
To Chamberlains post - not what they are in the market for.
Knicks would love Gorat tho... look for that type of deal...where Amare goes back to the Suns (??)
