The Kings, Knicks and Rockets continue to discuss a three-team deal that would send Tracy McGrady to the Knicks, but apparently the Kings drive a hard bargain.
How hard? They’re reportedly asking for David Lee, who is only the Knicks’ best player, as a price to taking back Jared Jeffries’ contract, according to the Sacramento Bee’s Sam Amick.
Yeah … good luck with that. Not only is Lee the only thing keeping the Knicks relevant this year, but he also has to approve the trade because he’s on a one-year contract. If he accepts, he loses his Bird Rights, meaning the Kings would not be able to go over the salary cap to re-sign him. There’s no way he agrees to that.
Nice try, Kings.
