Trade targets: All 30 teams

New York Knicks

Record: 23-32
12th place in East

Status: Sellers

Before the season, the Knicks wanted to make the playoffs and create forward momentum to attract big-time free agents like Kevin Durant.

New York has had good news on the latter front: The Knicks topped last season's win total on Jan. 6, and the emergence of rookie Kristaps Porzingis has given the franchise a new rebuilding paradigm.

But now that the Knicks' progress toward a playoff berth seems to have stalled, the Carmelo Anthony question looms: Is their superstar hurting the team's long-term prospects? And will he agree to waive his no-trade clause?

If so, who could the Knicks get in exchange for Melo? We have three trade targets in mind, including a rookie and All-Star forwards from two title contenders.
