Heard this too...I would Def trade Calderon and the 4th for Bledsoe and the 13th pickRecent New York Knicks trade rumors have linkedthe team to a possible deal with the Phoenix Suns. A Knicks trade rumorindicates that Eric Bledsoe and the No. 13 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft could beoffered in exchange for the Knicks? No. 4 overall selection. The Knicks ownthat No. 4 pick, but with three players the team wants expected to already beoff the board, there have been various reports that the team is willing to dealthe pick. Now several places are reporting on a possible Knicks deal with the Suns,likely stemming from an online chat that NBA analyst Chad Ford hosted on ESPN.comback on Wednesday (June 17).
During that chat, Ford addressed how the Sunsmay be more enamored with Brandon Knight than Eric Bledsoe moving forward. Whenpressed about what the Suns might be willing to offer, a deal including Bledsoeand the No. 13 pick as a starting point made sense to him. It might also besomething the Knicks seriously consider if Phil Jackson feels Bledsoe wouldwork well with Carmelo Anthony. While there is no indication that either teamhas broached this topic, the rumor has been building in the last 36 hours.
Maybe the reason that these New York Knickstrade rumors are resonating as true is that the team has routinely dealt picksand young players to acquire veterans. That?s how the Knicks got CarmeloAnthony away from the Denver Nuggets and put the franchise in the position itcurrently resides. With a lot of salary cap spaceto play with, the Knicks could certainly afford the contract Bledsoe was given.Bledsoe is under contract through the 2018/19 NBA season, with an escalatingsalary of $13.5 million for next season that increases by $500,000 each year.It?s not a question of money, but rather whether the Knicks want to trade thathigh pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.
As previouslyreported on the Inquisitr, Knicks team president Phil Jacksonhas a lot of work to do in the NBA offseason. There are several free agentsthat have already expressed interest in signing with the franchise, and Jacksonhas a lot of money to spend. It will be very interesting to see which playerswant to come play for Jackson and with Carmelo Anthony. There will likely becountless New York Knicks trade rumors with just a week until the 2015 NBADraft takes place. The franchise holds an important spot in the draft orderthat could be used to improve with youth or to acquire players in a deal.

It would be a good deal even if we had to keep Calderon and just used one of our trade exceptions to get him. He's a stud that would help immediately.Heard this too...I would Def trade Calderon and the 4th for Bledsoe and the 13th pick

Man if Phil trades this pick and doesn't acquire multiple draft assets in this draft I'm gonna be irate
And Detroit potentially trying to pawn off Jennings to us is laughable even if Calderon was swapped this accomplishes nothing.
