New York Knicks Could Look To Trade Pablo Prigioni
The New York Knicks will stop at nothing to improve their team.
If it includes trading Amare Stoudemire and his enormous contract, so be it. No player is safe. Unless your name is Carmelo Anthony of course.
Phil Jackson is essentially working with the adage that sometime you have to give to get.
According to ESPN’s Marc Stein been looking to trade guard Wayne Ellington to no avail. So Jackson might have to package him with Pablo Prigioni to make a deal a bit more attractive.
Attempts to move Ellington solo have been unsuccessful, so Knicks said to be weighing prospect of attaching Prigioni to deal as a catalyst

They can afford the move because after the Tyson Chandler trade to Dallas, the Knicks are left with a lot of guards. And I mean a lot.
Here are their guards. J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, José Calderon, Shane Larkin, Thanasis Antetokounmpo, Ellington, Toure Murray, Tim Hardaway JR., and Prigioni.
I think they can afford some more flexibility there.
Who would you like to see as a Knick with the available pieces? I’d say they should pick up another big man or true small forward.
