Which Rumored Deal Involving NY Knicks Makes the Most Sense?

The 2011 NBA Draft has come and gone, meaning we can officially move beyond “Jimmer Mania” and start focusing on those who are actually on the New York Knicks roster.

Not entirely true.

Yes, we can now begin to focus on things like Carmelo Anthony’s conditioning, Amar’e Stoudemire’s and Chauncey Billups’ health issues, but until we know what direction New York is heading (“big three” formation or balanced attack), trade speculation is going to dominate headlines.

And why shouldn’t it?

After all, since their elimination from the playoffs, the Knicks have been the stars of an array of puzzling circumstances.

First, Donnie Walsh, the man responsible for putting together a relevant team, is basically shown the door.

And most recently, the Knicks make a slightly questionable pick, drafting Georgia Tech’s Iman Shumpert to add to their arsenal of guards, when forwards Chris Singleton of FSU and Kenneth Faried of Morehead, were still available.

What has this all added up to?

New York, as usual, have been mentioned in what seems like a thousand different trade scenarios.

It comes as surprising to some given the limited number of coveted assets the Knicks possess, but to the rest of us, finding their way to center stage in the trade rumor mill is all in a day’s news for New York.

As it was last year, and the year before that, it seems that the Knicks are likely headed for another roster shake-up by next season’s trade deadline, which is why we cannot focus solely on the current roster structure.
