Knicks Close In On Andrea Bargnani

The New York Knicks are close to finalizing a trade for power forward Andrea Bargnani, which would send Steve Novak and Marcus Camby to the Toronto Raptors, a league source confirmed to

Sources say in order to make the trade work after July 10 — when the league’s annual moratorium is lifted — the Knicks will have to sign-and-trade at least one player they had at the end of the season as part of the deal.

Earl Barron and Quentin Richardson are possibilities, according to sources.

Kenyon Martin, however, is not going to sign off on being signed-and-traded to Toronto, sources say.
