Cohen Courtside: Storylines vs. Knicks
Cohen’s Analysis: Was a Dwight Howard to Knicks trade ever an option last year and was a package between NY and Orlando ever considered? One Eastern Conference executive last season said the Knicks were more than willing to deal Amar’e Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler to try and attain Howard. But it seemed obvious that Stoudemire’s troubled knees, overall plagued health and encumbered contract were never appealing to the Magic. The same executive didn’t believe the Knicks were ever considering trading Carmelo Anthony.
