While NBA trade rumors for an All-Star player recently ceased after an actual trade, that hasn’t stopped other speculation from continuing. The latest rumors feature a pair of former All-Star guards who could be swapped along with a former Golden State Warriors big man. Could the New York Knicks send Derrick Rose to the Dallas Mavericks? The deal could work out based on one esteemed NBA sports writer’s opinion, as the Knicks continue to try to improve their roster for future success.
The New York Knicks have been part of NBA trade rumor central over the past several weeks. There was initial excitement when the team brought in brand new assets including Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, and Brandon Jennings. Some NY fans believed this might be the new group of talent to help superstar Carmelo Anthony take things a step further. However, expectations haven’t really been met. The team is near contention for a playoff spot, but at this point getting past the first round seems highly unlikely. That could mean Phil Jackson and Knicks’ management look to move one or more of their stars ahead of the deadline this week.
