Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports The New York Knicks just acquired Shane Larkin and Samuel Dalembert in a deal that also included Raymond Felton and Tyson Chandler heading to the Mavericks.  Shane Larkin was easily the most valuable piece in this deal. Dalembert also could draw interest from some teams as a rim protector, and while he’s not a veteran minimum guy, he also isn’t making a ton of money, currently making only 3,877,282 dollars. @SportsSpotNet, formerly @NYSportsSpot, and insider for New York sports was one who reported this rumor via Twitter: Report: Knicks are attempting to trade Samuel Dalembert and Shane Larkin. Already. — Sports Spot (@SportsSpotNet) June 25, 2014 Their are some rumors that Phil is already looking to deal them elsewhere.   What the Knicks would get in return is entirely unknown, but with a team who’s best player is Amare Stoudemire or J.R. Smith, pretty much any talent or value in a pick would make sense in a deal. This team looks like they’re ready for an overhaul, and Samuel Dalembert and Shane Larkin look like they may not be a part of it.  If this rumor is true, it shows us that Dalembert and Larkin were likely nothing more than cap throw ins for the Mavericks, and then the question arises, who are the Mavericks targeting that is forcing them to keep their salary very low.
