Hey look! A trade rumor that doesn't involve Monta Ellis. How refreshing. Unfortunately, it's one of those rumors that you wish you could verify with an official source.
According to someone called Probballdraft on Twitter (an NBA draft expert, columnist and TV personality who apparently has to go anonymous to keep his identity safe to report these rumors), the New York Knicks and Sacramento Kings are wheeling and dealing on a curious trade offer. Small forward Omri Casspi would be shipped to Madison Square Garden in exchange for Toney Douglas and cash considerations ($3 million).
It makes about as much sense from the Kings. Marcus Thornton and Tyreke Evans had trouble coexisting offensively on the court. Douglas, Marcus Thornton and Tyreke Evans all trying to share the ball with each other? Migraines, so many migraines. Casspi might not have the greatest upside, but you'd think the Kings could get a little more if they wanted to deal him.
Kings & Knicks fans, would you be happy with a Casspi-Douglas swap? Let us know in the comments!
