You probably don’t need any additional reasons to laugh at the New York Knicks, but I’m going to give you one.
That’s because the Knicks allegedly proposed a trade which would have sent Carmelo Anthony to the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for Jabari Parker.
Yeah, I can stop and let you read that again.
Go ahead. Let it sink in.
It’s not known if that was the entire deal or if it was indeed a straight up one-for-one trade, but either way Ian Begley says the trade was ‘discussed’.
And by ‘discussed’ we mean the Bucks hung up the phone and collectively cackled like a wild pack of hyenas.
In fairness, Baegley did go on to suggest that it was possible the Bucks could have been the third team in a multi-team deal, but still. Any deal involving Melo and Parker with Jabari heading to New York seems almost impossible.
