NBA Rumors: New York Knicks Trying To Deal Prigioni, Ellington

NBA Rumors

The New York Knicks have been the leaders in the clubhouse of trying to trade “untradable” players for some time now.

If that was some type of weird stat, the Knicks would be the league-leaders.

In any case, after unsuccessfully trying to swing Andrea Bargnani and Amar’e Stoudemire, the Knicks are now attempting to trade Pablo Prigioni and Wayne Ellington as they attempt to create a roster spot.

Prigioni was seldomly used by the Knicks last season, averaging about 19 minutes and three points per game, but apparently there’s some kind of market for the 37-year-old, two-year NBA veteran.

Ellington was acquired by the Knicks as a trade filler in an exchange between New York and the Dallas Mavericks earlier this offseason. Dallas sent Jose Calderon, Samuel Dalembert, Ellington, Shane Larkin and two second round picks in exchange for Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton just prior to the NBA Draft in June.

Ellington averaged a little over three points per game for the Dallas Mavericks last season. It’d be interesting to see what the Knicks would do with the free roster spot, but the trouble in that is, you know, actually creating one first.
