The New York Knicks are trying to turn their season around after a slow tart that featured plenty of drama across the board. One of the ways the Knicks are looking to get better is with their depth at center, something that may prompt a trade before the deadline.

According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, the Knicks want to get someone behind Tyson Chandler and may look to the trade deadline to get help.

The Knicks have depth, but a flock of injury-riddled big men behind center Tyson Chandler, who also has been an injury risk. With the Feb. 20 trade deadline upcoming, the Knicks would seek a bona fide backup center behind Chandler.

The problem for the Knicks might be finding someone to trade for a backup center but with depth on their roster, the team may be able to find a way to be active at the deadline.
