Andrea Bargnani has been traded to the Knicks for Steve Novak, Marcus Camby, Quentin Richardson plus a first round pick in 2016 and a couple of 2nd rounders.

I like the idea of Bargnani as a second option to Carmelo especially since they relied on JR Smith last year. The guy is great offensively when he's on.

I hate that Bargnani has been terrible as well as hurt most of the last two years, plays little to no defense and somehow hasn't averaged over 5 rebounds a game for the length of his career.

I don't really know how they work the rotation unless Amare just stays hurt. I see this move as having a higher potential of disaster than of success.

Maybe, but I don't recall Novak, Camby or Richardson getting much of any playing time during the Pacers/Knicks series (which, admittedly, was the only time I watched the Knicks this year).

I doubt the 2016 first-round pick will be worth all that much, either. I think this'll work out for the Knicks. They had to do something.

This will be Camby's second stint in a Raptors uniform, assuming he isn't released or decides to retire; he was the second overall pick by the Raptors in the 1996 NBA Draft, and played with the team during its second and third seasons of existence.

As a casual Raptors fan who watched Bargnani "play" for the last few seasons, I'm happy to see him go. I give Knicks fans two games before they lose patience with his guy and his completely non-existent defense.
