Stein: Knicks looking to deal Wayne Ellington

New, comments

Don't include Pablo. Don't do it.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Hey no come on I was having a peaceful Tuesday night:

Okay so here's how I read this:

1. The Knicks want some more space beyond the 1-2 open spots they have. Why? I don't know! That's intriguing.

2. The Knicks consider Wayne Ellington expendable, which is fair, but they'd rather trade him for something than cut him outright since he's a healthy, able-bodied human basketball player.

3. THAT THE KNICKS WOULD EVEN DARE CONSIDER TRADING THEIR MOST LOVABLE EMPLOYEE IN RECENT MEMORY, NOT TO MENTION A SAVVY AND TRIANGLE-FRIENDLY PLAYER AND FUTURE CO-PILOT OF A WONDERFUL ALL-SHOOTING ALL-TAU-CERAMICA BACKCOURT MARKS THIS MANAGERIAL REGIME AS A VILE ABJECT FAILURE WORTHY OF IMPRISONMENT.

4. The latter two tweets don't really match the first one. Doesn't sound like they're *trying* to trade Pablo so much as they're wondering if he's worth expending for whatever they're after.

5. No, but for real why do y'all want to trade Wayne Ellington and make space so badly? What do you have cooking, Knicks?

This does not mean the Knicks *will* trade any of the people mentioned above. This just means they're talking about it. Don't trade Pablo, though, guys. Please. I love him so much. And I really do think he fits great.
