My take is that this is a Mirror, Mirror universe Knicks move. Remember the rumors that Phil was trying to talk Melo into a trade to the Bulls? Guess Melo won that argument. If the Knicks go on to sign Pau and/or Noah, instead of trading Melo to the Bulls, they’ve brought the Bulls to Melo. It’s pretty much mountains to Muhammad, and given the way D-Rose, Pau and Noah move like glaciers these days, well. Incidentally, the new Knicks pre-tipoff music now has to be Cher — If I Could Turn Back Time.
