Earlier this week, Tyson Chandler went down with a right fibula injury that will sideline him for four to six weeks. For the time being, power forward Andrea Bargnani has been filling in for Chandler but with only him and Cole Aldrich available at center, the Knicks may be forced to make a move in the coming weeks.
Additionally, Frank Isola of the New York Daily News reported earlier today that Iman Shumpert‘s trade value seems high, and much higher than how the Knicks currently value him. Isola suggested Kenneth Faried of the Denver Nuggets as a possible trade candidate who would interest the Knicks.
As our roster counts show, New York is currently at the 15 player max. This means signing any free agent would subsequently force the Knicks to release a current player on their roster. Available free agent big men the Knicks have been rumored to be interested in include Jason Collins and Louis Amundson.
Should the Knicks trade for a big man, sign a free agent, or stay put?
