The New York Knicks were interested in Avery Bradley before he was sent to the Los Angeles Clippers.
It seems like the New York Knicks have been linked to almost every team that’s been looking to trade a player this season.
Prior to being shipped off from the Detroit Pistons to the Los Angeles Clippers earlier this week, it turns out that the Knicks contacted the Pistons about guard Avery Bradley, according to Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free-Press.

The 27 year-old Bradley is a shooting guard that has been averaging 15 points per game this season, which is down from his average of 16.3 last season with the Boston Celtics.
If the Knicks had traded for him, he would have been an upgrade over Courtney Lee, but I do find it interesting that they inquired about him, since they already have Tim Hardaway Jr., who’s playing out of position at small forward right now.
Bradley would have been a nice addition, but there’s no way the Knicks could have given the Pistons what the Clippers did when it comes to a talented player like Blake Griffin.
Also, I’m not sure if adding Bradley would have helped the Knicks chances at making the playoffs this year, so I’m glad nothing happened.
