The NBA trade deadline is four days away, which means that it’s truly getting to the 11h hour for some teams who are looking to make trades. One team that many are looking at as possibly making a deal are the New York Knicks, but it’s starting to look like they’ll be standing pat at the deadline.

On Saturday, a report surfaced that appeared to suggest this was the plan for the Knicks and star forward Carmelo Anthony has backed that claim up. According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, Melo doesn’t have high expectations for the Knicks moves at the deadline.

“I don’t know man,’’ Anthony said. “I don’t know who’s tradeable, who’s on the block. Not many people that I think can come right now in February and change our whole season around. This is a difficult time.

There really aren’t a ton of guys the Knicks can trade away, although there has been interest in Beno Udrih, Iman Shumpert and Tim Hardaway Jr. Despite that interest, the Knicks seem complacent not making a move at the deadline.

    as much as I wanted Melo to win in NYC, after watching him for few years made me realize I’m never going to see this happen. He’s got the talent to score but he just cannot play focused for more than 2 games at a time. Meaning, he can’t play defense throughout the entire game for more than 2 games.
