Knicks Trading Darko for Cardinal

by February 18, 2010

Milicic’s brief stay in New York comes to an uninspiring end: “Darko Milicic’s agent confirmed that his client is being traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Brian Cardinal. As part of the deal, the Knicks will release Cardinal in order to open up a roster spot for the proposed Nate Robinson trade with the Boston Celtics. The one potential snag is that there is no guarantee that Milicic will report to Minnesota. As recently as Tuesday, the veteran center was hopeful that the Knicks would release him so he could return to his native Serbia. Instead, he is headed to NBA Siberia. ‘It’s a disappointment,’ Marc Cornstein said. ‘This is the final chapter of a bad story for him in New York.”’
