New York Knicks: Five Possible Deals At NBA’s Trade Deadline

Jose Calderon For Ricky Rubio

These two point guards aren’t even in the same ball park in terms of skill. That’s why the Knicks would need to make a sacrifice in terms of getting this deal done. Even with that, it would be a long shot.

New York would send Calderon, Arron Afflalo, and Jerian Grant to Minnesota for Ricky Rubio and Kevin Martin.

After five years in the league, it’s been proven that Rubio will never be a shooter but he’s one of the best passers and defenders in the league. For the Knicks to get the 25-year-old they would likely have to take on Martin’s terrible salary that Minnesota has been trying to move all season.
