according to 1 of 6Nathaniel S. Butler/Getty ImagesAs the New York Knicks’ losses pile higher and the midseason trade deadline draws nearer, it feels like the roof will soon cave in on the entire place.
If there are personnel changes the “masterminds” in the front office are determined to make before 3 p.m. Feb. 18, they had better address some of the following issues.
If there is a midseason deal that Knicks management could make to salvage the franchise’s reputation before a mob scene erupts on Seventh Avenue, it would have to be about more than “tanking” and “assets.”
It has to be about basketball.
Madison Square Gulag, where being in the wrong place at the wrong time could get you dragged out screaming by guards, where threats of being traded to distant lands fly freely, and where (seemingly) all are left bare to the braying curses and slinging stones of the angry masses.

Established rumors will be our guide, but we will journey outside that box in search of the right trade partners and packages.
Be warned: Our deals are going to pull at the fabric of the Association’s competitive landscape.

Cleveland Cavaliers’ Biggest Needs Heading into 2016-17 NBA Trade Deadline

Allowing 105.7 points per contest (18th overall), some help on the wing and in the middle could be used to trim back this total.
Starting shooting guard JR Smith remains out until April following thumb surgery, while fellow wing Iman Shumpert is day-to-day with an ankle injury.
This leaves an already thin Cavaliers backcourt calling for reinforcements—preferably those who can defend.
