Berman was on this morning with Hahn on the radio and was talking trade deadline. I'll try to summarize it here:
Berman's feeling is that the Knicks will not do a big trade unless one presents itself and that they feel Shumpert has a very high value. Shumpert will not be traded unless it is part of a big deal to acquire a big piece to help Melo and "not some forward..." (squashes FARIED deal!)
Knicks are targeting All Star talent to pair up with Melo and are holding onto their assets until a trade presents itself. A point guard is needed and Rondo is that type of talent, but the Celtics want picks and the Knicks cannot accommodate them.
