The New York Knicks are better off trading Courtney Lee. Here’s how they can get the best return …
The season is still young, but it’s looking like Courtney Lee could be an odd man out in coach David Fizdale’s system. The 33-year-old shooting guard has not played at all this season due to a neck injury.
Granted, the New York Knicks announced on Twitter this week Lee was “progressing well,” and he should start running again soon.
Courtney Lee (neck spasms) was re-evaluated; is progressing well and will begin running on the court this week.

But even if Lee is healthy, he isn’t much more than a three-and-D in Fizdale’s system. He’s also on the wrong side of 30 and due just over $25 million between now and the end of next season, per Spotrac. That means it’s time to make a trade, but finding a buyer could be tough.
