With one day left before the trade deadline, T.I takes a look at the New York Knicks who are looking to trade everyone over the age of 21.

The New York Knicks are currently the worst team in the NBA, sporting a 10-42 record and doing its best tank for Zion impression. New York’s fans are slowly but surely losing patience with the Jame Dolan-owned franchise as the team’s ineptitude appears to know no bounds.

Perhaps the biggest news out of New York was the trading of franchise cornerstone Kristaps Porzingis to Mark Cuban’s Dallas Mavericks.

No matter what stories come out of New York, no-one trades a franchise player on their rookie scale contract. While the Knicks did well to receive Dennis Smith Jr., DeAndre Jordan, Wesley Matthews, and two future first-round picks, giving up KP is tough to swallow.

The Enes Kanter Chronicles

The other controversy is centered around Enes Kanter. The Turkish big man is causing a stir in the Big Apple as he continues to be cemented to the bench under the direction of management.

Even Knicks fans are getting in on the action, chanting Kanter’s name when the team refuses to play the Turk.

No-one knows where he ends up but one thing is for sure – he won’t be in New York for much longer.

With that being said, let’s take a look at the team situation and two players Oklahoma City should target at the February deadline.
