Despite having no one named to the NBA All Star team this past weekend, the New York Knicks continued with their perfect streak after the break, with a 113-100 road victory over the Washington Wizards. The Knicks set a franchise record with 23 points in overtime and finished the game with five players scoring 19 points or more.
Knicks center Eddy Curry had four points and two rebounds in a little more than 15 minutes of play. He has played less than 25 minutes in six of the last nine games that he has appeared in and it seems as though the Knicks are interested in shipping him out of town. ESPN.com’s Chris Sheridan is reporting that the Knicks may have a deal to send Curry to Miami in a three-team trade that would land the Knicks Vince Carter, with the Nets receiving Ricky Davis and Jason Williams from Miami.
Carter would be a terrible fit with the current Knicks roster and is contract is considered one of the worst in the league. With both of those important factors in mind, I think this deal is exactly what the Knicks are trying to do.
