Mike D’Antoni: David Lee May Be Traded

 Wearing a red Team USA polo shirt at an Olympic function at The Plaza yesterday, Mike D’Antoni put on his Knicks New York Knicks  hat in declaring the team’s biggest need is backcourt help, with free agency dawning today.

D’Antoni, a U.S. Olympic assistant coach this summer, also supported David Lee David Lee , saying he would "love" to coach him next season but admitted Lee is the subject of trade talks.

Unrestricted free agent Beno Udrih of Sacramento, Golden State restricted free agent Monta Ellis and Raymond Felton are their top point guard targets, but that may be shooting too high, considering the Knicks’ new cap restrictions. Trade options include the Bulls’ Kirk Hinrich and Memphis’ Mike Conley and Kyle Lowry.
