From the NY Daily News:
Thomas spoke recently with Lee's agent and informed him that he is not trading the third-year forward. If Thomas is true to his word, it will be difficult for the Knicks to acquire Sacramento's Ron Artest because the Kings would insist on including Lee in a proposed trade.
"I spoke to Isiah and he said he's not going to trade David," said Mark Bartelstein, Lee's Chicago-based agent. "David isn't going anywhere."
We've been deceived before, so take it with a grain of salt, but this is great to hear. David Lee was our Knick of the Year and he's the one future star that's always been a Knick. I hope Isiah is true to his word.
(Note: When Lee finally hits a slump this year and I'm damning his very existence, remind me that I said all this.)
