In a report by Alex Kennedy, the Knicks may have made an offer to the Atlanta Hawks for Josh Smith. According to Kennedy, the Knicks may have offered Amar’e Stoudemire and Iman Shumpert to the Hawks for Josh Smith and a salary cap filler.
The deal makes a lot of sense for the Knicks, who are strapped against the salary cap for the next two years. Stoudemire is signed through 2015 and Smith’s contract expires after this season.
Stoudemire has played well coming off of his injury and Iman Shumpert is a young project with a lot of potential. Shumpert is known for his tenacity on the defensive end, while Stoudemire, when healthy, is one of the better scorers in the game.
We’re counting down the hours until the trade deadline come Thursday. It looks like it may be an exciting one.
