Knicks fans: Not thrilled about the deal

Toxic situation or not, Bargnani's numbers in Toronto-- especially over the last two or three years-- were horrendous, and were produced between long bouts with injury. My vision of Bargnani turning things around is an assumption. It is baseless. Most of the league would not operate under this assumption, which is why the Raptors grew pretty desperate to move Bargnani and even considered using the amnesty provision to release him. Bargnani is the kind of player you trade with picks, not for picks. He also doesn't have an obvious role within the current Knicks roster.
