Knicks Reportedly Offered Stoudemire, Hardaway, Shumpert for Kevin Love

by July 26, 2014

The Knicks reportedly offered Amar’e Stoudemire, Tim Hardaway Jr and Iman Shumpert for Kevin Love, according to the Wall Street Journal. Keep dreaming, Phil.

The Knicks recently attempted to make a trade for Minnesota Timberwolves star Kevin Love, offering forward Amar’e Stoudemire and his enormous expiring contract, second-year guard Tim Hardaway, Jr. and swingman Iman Shumpert, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

 

But the long-shot offer, made in the past week, was declined and never stood much of a chance, particularly because the Timberwolves could potentially strike a richer deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers involving No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins. The Chicago Bulls, who have a bevy of intriguing assets to trade, have reportedly had conversations with Minnesota about Love in recent weeks since failing to sign Knicks star Carmelo Anthony in free agency.
