Verdict: Jeter & CC like Carmelo trade

As reporters surrounded Derek Jeter to ask about Hank Steinbrenner's "mansions" comments, Jeter suddenly turned into Jalen Rose.

"The Knicks made a good trade," said Jeter. "Carmelo is going to help them out. Everyone in New York is excited about it."

Jeter did it to try and break the ice. He then essentially laughed off Hank's comments.

Meanwhile, CC Sabathia, said he likes the trade, too. CC, who sits courtside often at Knicks' games, said he didn't want to give up Landry Fields. He was fine trading the rest of the crew.

So, as far as we can tell, the owner of the Knicks, the coach of FIU, the Captain and the ace all were fine with the package the Knicks' gave up, while the Knicks' president and coach maybe thought they gave up too much.
