Report: Raptors Trade Andrea Bargnani To Knicks

The Raptors may finally have found a deal for 2006′s #1 pick, Andrea Bargnani.  The New York Knicks are reportedly favorites to land the 7-foot power forward who has missed 82 games over the last 2 seasons and is slated to make $11.3 million next season with a trade kicker.  Bargnani averaged 12.7 points and 3.7 rebounds in 35 games during the 2012-13 season.

According to Howard Beck of the NY Times:

With little flexibility to upgrade their roster in free agency, the Knicks are closing in on a deal to acquire Andrea Bargnani, the Toronto Raptors’ jump-shooting 7-footer, according to a person involved in the talks.

The Knicks are offering a package built around Marcus Camby, Steve Novak and two future draft picks, one in the first round and one in the second.

UPDATE: The Knicks and Raptors have agreed on the trade and currently await league approval.

UPDATE 2: The NBA denied the trade proposal.  The deal must be reconstructed.
