Novak can help with our 3 point shooting and veteranship, Camby can retire a Raptor, after all he was drafted from the Raptors, he could also mentor our bigs. AND on top of that, we get 2 picks!
Most likely a 2016 pick
Slightly expanded NYT article up now:
"Several teams have pursued Bargnani, but the Knicks have emerged as the “strong favorites” to land him, and a handshake deal could come soon, the person said."
Of course, this can't officially happen until July 10th.
The Knicks must really like doing business with Ujiri.
This could raise the return with the Clippers. MU creating a market for AB like he did with Melo it seems.
IMO i dont think we can get any better return for Bargnani than this.
Side note: The Knicks are going no where fast if they think this trade will make them better. This is a good illustration of location being useless without the right management setup.
Correction: it's still not July 1st yet, so it could still happen tonight, and that's what Beck's saying now. Pleasepleaseplease let this come through. If we're lucky, Camby retires and takes a player development job with the Raptors, getting his salary off the cap. Novak's I don't mind swallowing; he's at least useful in spots.
edit: It's done! (Pending approval from the league office)
edit 2: Woj says it's two 2nd round picks, not a 1st and a 2nd. I'd say I hope he's wrong, but I'd believe Woj's sources over Beck's.

If Masai can get that kind of value for Bargs even PHDSteve is gonna have to jump on the band wagon. I'm so going to be staying up tonight to hear what other rumours are gonna start up at midnight.
Well that came from left field.
