New York Knicks want to trade the majority of their roster

Published 7 Comments

 New York Knicks are having a disastrous season and things don’t look like they are about to get better anytime soon. But for all their problems on the court, they have an abundance of problems off the court too.

Next year will be a big year for the franchise, and it has been revealed that the Knicks are in the process of planning a mass exodus in preparation for next season.

According to reports from Bleacher Report’s Howard Beck, the Knicks are in the mood for a huge clearout as soon as possible, and it’s believed that every single player on the Knicks roster is available for a trade.

Mass exodus 

Every player that is except for star small forward Carmelo Anthony. Although there has been plenty of speculation about the future of Carmelo in the recent weeks, for now it looks like Melo is the one player that the Knicks still hold dear.

“The Knicks will probably keep Carmelo Anthony for now. But rival executives say that everyone else at the [Madison] Garden is available, possibly even the ball boys. J.R. Smith is the most likely to be exiled, if the Knicks can find a taker,” Beck explained, according to reports.

It’s not a surprise that many of the Knicks players are available when you consider the issues that the 5-22 franchise currently faces. But to make almost every player available is almost unheard of.

There are many teams in the NBA that could potentially be interested in some of the Knicks’ dead weight. The Lakers for instance have been linked with some of the ‘young intriguing options’ at the Knicks, according to reports.

Melo staying put 

Although top talent such as J.R. Smith could now leave the Knicks, the focus this week has still remained on Carmelo Anthony despite the fact that he insists he will remain with the franchise.

Melo signed a huge deal in the summer, but reports have suggested that he could potentially waive the no-trade clause in his contract to allow the Knicks to find a deal. But the star baller says, for now, he’s not interested in that option.
