The New York Knicks have been wanting to make a trade to bolster their lineup and add some star power to convince Carmelo Anthony that the team wants to win now. It’s a steep price, but the Knicks seem to be willing to part with Iman Shumpert to land Darren Collison from the Los Angeles Clippers, but the rabbit hole goes deeper.

According to Marc Stein from ESPN.com, the Knicks don’t want to trade Shumpert unless they’re getting a first-round pick back or Raymond Felton is included. The Clippers don’t want to take on Felton in the trade but Stein states that middle ground may have been found thanks to Matt Barnes.

 

 

The Clippers and Knicks still may not make this trade, but it’s clearly being openly discussed and the clock ticking in the background may mean this deal picks up steam as we head into the overnight hours.
