Andrea Bargnani trade to Knicks back on, according to report


There were some complications, but the trade of Andrea Bargnani to the Knicks is back on and will be completed on July 10.

After hitting a bit of a snag Sunday night, the Andrea Bargnani trade to the New York Knicks is back on, according to Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears. The trade officially can't be completed until July 10.

The Knicks and Toronto Raptors first agreed to a trade early Sunday evening that would bring Bargnani to New York and send Steve Novak, Marcus Camby, a 2016 first-round pick and two future second-round picks to Toronto.

However, the trade was put on hold when it was reported that the NBA wouldn't approve the deal by the end of the night, meaning it would have to be restructured under 2013-14 cap figures. Because of the way the contracts involved in the trade are structured, the Knicks had to include another piece in the deal.

It's currently not clear just who that extra piece is, but ESPN's Marc Stein speculates that it's either Earl Barron or Quentin Richardson. One of those two will be signed-and-traded to the Raptors to make the trade work.
