The New York Knicks are looking to improve their roster as they sit second to last in the Eastern Conference with a 6-15 record and no first round pick to use in the highly touted 2014 NBA Draft, thanks to their deal to acquire Andrea Bargnani.  One might think that would be enough of a reason for the Knicks to rethink a potential deal with the Toronto Raptors.  Nevertheless,

 

How they would go about pulling off this deal is unclear at this point, but the Knicks find themselves in the familiar position of having one of the NBA’s highest payrolls with little if anything to show for it.  The other part of this equation is what do the Knicks have that the Raptors would want that would make them inclined to deal the 27 year old point guard.

The Knicks are coming off of a win against the Chicago Bulls, but are about to play 4 games in 6 nights.

    This article seems to ignore the fact that the Raptors are trying to tank. Getting worse in the short term is the goal of any deal that sends Lowry out. It’s a smart strategy to fight/lose your way into the top 5 of this draft class
