The New York Knicks thought they had a deal done at the deadline with the Los Angeles Clippers centered upon Iman Shumpert for Darren Collison.

The Clippers decided against making the trade at the last minute.

Sources believe the Clippers may have been posturing to keep Shumpert from being traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Good find @Clipper*joe.

Whether or not it's true, I'm glad it's being reported by Chris "multiple sources" Broussard; this way the Clippers don't lose any credibility as a team (in terms of making deals in the future). Hopefully this doesn't hurt us from doing deals in the future. If there aren't any repercussions, then it is a pretty smart move.

It would have been nice if we could have sneaked in and got Sefalosha while OKC got Felton and Shumpert, but don't think that was ever an option.

Hahah if all it was... was an OKC co**block.. I can get behind it 100 percent. I almost feel bad for the Knicks though who were played.

Classic. May hurt our chances of trading with Knicks in the future. Good thing they don't have any assets we'd want.

Except Shumpert later on, Lmao. How about a sign and trade for Carmelo during the offseason (I'm not a fan of Carmelo on this team)? Maybe Chandler if we couldn't resign DJ in a few years or Amare for the minimum after his deal is done.

On another note, is Amare the new Antawn Jamison?

It shouldn't be that hard to sell that Iman's injury was the biggest reason for shying away at the last minute, if you add the fact that Iman doesn't like playing the 3 it didn't really make a lot of sense for us in the first place.

Don't really care as a Knicks fan and I don't think this move would have helped the Clippers either.

Getting Collison at best would put the Knicks in the playoff picture to get swept in the first round. Shumpert has been underwhelming this season so I doubt he would help the Clippers much.

I think Collison>Shumpert anyway.

Amare will get more then the Minimum, and he isn't the new Jamison, because while he's hasn't gotten the minutes this year from Woodson while still claiming to be fine, He's actually played like a Superstar player while he's been on the Floor minus a few games. And the Team has played well when he's been on the Floor. The problem is because of minutes restriction's and a log jam most of the season at the 4 & 5 and the Knicks desire to rest him in fear of another knee injury, you can't really tell that unless you consistently watch the knicks play, witch is even harder to do as Woodson style of offense is Melo Ball, Kinda why Melo looks so bad this year in the 4th quarter. But I think Melo would be a great fit if he gets into Better shape and commits on Defense, Offensive wise he fits with any team.

LOL... if true, "Golden Boy" Presti got absolutely schooled by Doc.

Hopefully he expresses that it was a tactical move to Collison and Barnes because damn that was a putrid trade plan. Trade two of our guys for the worse PG (overpaid for a contender backup as well) and a guy fresh into a MCL injury.

Doc doesn't deserve an apology because maybe if he stopped worrying about Shumpert he could of worked some better deals.

I think what it came down to was Shumpert was hurt the night before. The last thing we needed was to trade 2 healthy players for an injured Shumpert and FAT RAY!!!
