There's been a lot of talk, mostly from fans, surrounding the fact that the Knicks can use David Lee in a sign and trade. There was also recently an article on the subject.
But a source with knowledge of the situation says don't expect Lee to be involved in any sign and trade deals. Chris Broussard said yesterday on ESPN that the Knicks may explore a deal for Golden State's Monta Ellis.
"Golden State is not in play at the moment," the source says. "Right now it's looking like Chicago or New Jersey, depending what the big 3 do."
Bottom line is that Lee isn't doing the Knicks any favors, since apparently he's not happy with the way he's been treated by the Knicks this off season and the word that I keep hearing when talking about Lee and the Knicks is that next year they will be "adversaries."But if the most money comes via sign and trade, I would imagine Lee's camp would reconsider.
Other teams in play are Denver, .Miami, Boston and Minnesota, but it appears the Nets and Bulls are where Lee is targeting at this point.
