Knicks: Trade Deadline - 2-21-13
Since we are killing it this year there hasn't been much trade talk on the board (or much talk at all). Anyone think we might make a move?
However, Telfair has been mentioned as a possible cheap insurance pickup by bloggers and Ridnour could be available.
Luke Ridnour is being shopped by the Minnesota Timberwolves, and a league source told SheridanHoops.com “there is a good chance” the 10th-year point guard will be dealt before the Feb. 21 trade deadline. With Ricky Rubio back from an injury that wiped out the first half of his season, the T-Wolves have a glut at the position with J.J. Berea also under contract (for this season plus two more). Ridnour has a reasonable contract ($4 million this season, $4.3 million next season) and is a steady playmaker who has spent the majority of his career with bad teams, having appeared in the playoffs just twice.

Dalembert may be available:
Marc Stein 6 Feb
"Word is Bucks have been shopping Sam Dalembert thanks to emergence of Larry Sanders. Let's see if Sammy's 35 & 12 has impact on interest."
JJ Hickson too, if Portland wants to get something for him rather than losing him in FA for nothing.
"NBA general managers are starting to hone in on Hickson as they assess the best trade targets around the league. Due to his interesting contract situation with Portland, GMs are calling Hickson's agent directly, rather than making contact with Blazers GM Neil Olshey, according to Chris Haynes of CSN Northwest."
The Chicago Bulls and Toronto Raptors have engaged in exploratory trade discussions on a deal that would swap the Bulls' Carlos Boozer for the Raptors' Andrea Bargnani, according to sources familiar with the discussions. From Chicago's perspective, sources said, Bargnani's arrival could help address their glaring lack of 3-point shooting and brighten the overall look of its payroll, given that the Italian forward makes $5 million less than Boozer this season. Despite his well-chronicled defensive deficiencies, Bargnani would figure to be an effective pick-and-roll partner for Derrick Rose, once Rose makes his expected return from knee surgery after the All-Star break.
