Sounds like this deal is as good as done. The Knicks are awaiting some medical information on a back injury he sustained while in LA. Seeing as he made it through last season without any serious injury I doubt the Knicks will find anything unless they are having cold feet all of a sudden.

It's truly pathetic that James Dolan allows his teams (Knicks and Rangers) to be run into the ground like this. He gave Glen Sather control of the Rangers and his checkbook and allowed him to decimate that franchise with over the hill veterans and the trading of every prospect who was worth anything. I didn't think it could get much worse than Neil Smith and John Muckler but boy was I wrong. It took Sather five years to rectify the situation and only now is the franchise going into rebuilding mode.

The Knicks have been in shambles since Scott Layden replaced Ernie Grunfeld following the Eastern Conference championship team of 1999. Layden signed Allan Houston to a huge long term deal that is now coming back to haunt the franchise among other senseless moves. I thought Isiah Thomas would bring the franchise out of the pits. Unfortunately, he has only managed to further enhance his idiocy with this latest and soon to be completed trade of the only starter who knows how to play defense. To say that I am disappointed about this trade is a severe understatement. The Knicks have enough perimeter shooters and not enough defensive minded players; what sense does this trade make?

I'm going to the Basketball Hall of Fame today. I visited the old one a couple of years ago but have yet to visit the newer one. Hopefully the history of the great Knicks franchise and the history of the game of basketball will help take my mind off of the ineptitude of Isiah Thomas.

I trace the beginning of the end in NY basketball to the Oakley-for-Camby trade. I was a die-hard fan at the time, and i've barely cared about the NBA since-- it ripped my heart out.
