Default Bargnani close to being acquired by the Knicks

The Toronto Raptors are finalizing an agreement on a trade to send former No. 1 overall pick Andrea Bargnani to the New York Knicks, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

The Knicks will send their 2016 first-round pick to the Raptors, and a package that includes Marcus Camby and Steve Novak, league sources said.

The Knicks will also send two future second-round picks to Toronto, sources said.

For new Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri, the deal finally unloads the two years, $22 million left on the contract of the underachieving 7-foot forward.
Barganani was the first pick in the 2006 NBA draft, and has averaged 15 points and nearly five rebounds a game for his career.

The teams still need to complete a trade call with the NBA on Sunday night.

The New York Times first reported the teams were closing in on a deal.
