    L.A. has had internal discussions about trading for the Knicks' small forward, even running his name by a certain center who had trouble getting his shot off against Yao Ming.
    No word on what it will take to get Sprewell, although the two Lakers mentioned, Derek Fisher and Samaki Walker, add up to only $4.5 million in salaries. That's about $8 mil shy of Sprewell, so more players would have to go to the Knicks.

    Fisher and Walker???
    that's just unacceptable!

    he's more like to be a sixer
    The Knicks are shopping the 6-5 Sprewell because their three aims are to get younger, get longer and obtain a player or players with shorter-term contracts at less than maximum. The Sixers' Keith Van Horn fits the first two criteria but not the financial one. Van Horn is making $12M this season - similar to Sprewell - and has one more contract year. That extra year is a crucial factor in the new way of Cablevision thinking, with James Dolan facing a $40 million luxury-tax bill this summer.

    do you think that a spree-van horn trade would be acceptable for the knicks??

    NO WAY!!
    that would be the stupidest trade ever, after the ewing one
    van horn has some good rebounding, but spree is a better 3 pointer
    now when he plays so well and unselfishly we want to trade him?
    tipically layden!
    it better be just a fake rumor

    "I just want to be known that I played hard, did what I had to do to help the team win," Latrell Sprewell said when asked how he'd like to be remembered as a Knick.
    "Anyone who's seen me play here pretty much understands that."
    Tonight, Sprewell could be playing his final Garden game as a Knick.

    this makes me feels so bad..., it's kinda depressive.. anyway he will be remebered as one of the best players we ever had, as a player that made history in NY
    i still hope it won't happen, but if it does, i hope we get somebody who can replace him

    fresh news:
    layden eyes pau gasol instead of keith van horn

Larry Brown reportedly has Othella Harrington and Charlie Ward on his radar, so a Sixers' deal would probably include multiple parts and teams.

    According to a source, Philly is seeing if they can include 7-1 center Stanley Roberts as a throw-in piece in a package via sign-and-trade. The Sixers have until Monday - the end of the 30-day window - to sign him to a contract or he becomes a free agent.

    Layden has set his sights higher than Van Horn, notably toward Memphis center Pau Gasol. But getting Gasol seems a huge longshot. Every team is lining up at Memphis' door since word got out Grizzlies GM Jerry West is at least listening to offers for Gasol. Supposedly, West likes Poland's raw and rarely used 7-2 prospect Cezary Trybanski so much, he's exploring a Gasol trade. Layden's edge is he has among the best relationships with West and they talk frequently.

    Trade rumors continue to swirl around both the Blazers and the Knicks as Wednesday's trade deadline loomed. The most talk was centered on whether New York would deal Latrell Sprewell. ``I can't speak for everybody, but I've tried to just focus on the road trip and keep us in good playoff position,'' Houston said about the distraction. ... Knicks reserve center Michael Doleac, who went to high school at Portland's Central Catholic, earned a warm round of applausewhen he entered the game.
