The New York Daily News reports that the Trail Blazers, the Knicks and the Clippers could be mulling over a three-way trade that would send David Lee to Portland and Quentin Richardson to Los Angeles, and both Marcus Camby and Channing Frye to New York.
Knicks president Donnie Walsh denied that he was working on the trade, although the Daily News said several sources within the Knicks organization confirmed that the prospect of adding Camby to the roster has been discussed recently.
Portland has been interested in Lee for some time, and it is believed that Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni would be happy to exchange the 6-9 Lee for the 7-0 Camby at center.

Newsday reports that the Knicks may be in the final stages of a three-way trade with Golden State and the Los Angeles Clippers that would send Jamal Crawford, Zach Randolph and Mardy Collins elsewhere, while bringing Al Harrington to New York from the Warriors, as well as Tim Thomas and Cuttino Mobley from the Clippers.
The deal is reportedly a cost-cutting move, since Thomas, Mobley and Harrington each have deals that expire in 2010.
Harrington has been asking for a trade to get out of Golden State all season. The Knicks may be ready to help him achieve that goal in exchange for Crawford, although the New York Post speculated that the Knicks may give up Malik Rose instead.

Multiple sources indicate that the New York Knicks are trying to put together a deal to bring disgruntled Golden State Warrior Al Harrington to the team. While the Knicks have great interest in Harrington, the sticking point appears to revolve around who the Warriors would get in return.
Newsday and the New York Daily News report that Knicks president Donnie Walsh would like to trade center Eddy Curry for Harrington, since the benched center's salary is a close match with Harrington's. Newsday reported that a league source said Walsh spoke with Warriors executive Chris Mullin about a deal last week, and Mullin told Walsh he'd have to get back to him. At this point, it appears the Warriors have little to no interest in Curry.
The Knicks may need a third team involved in the trade to make a deal happen. The Charlotte Observer reported this week that the Bobcats might want in on the deal so they can get Curry. Newsday added that it's been very difficult for Walsh to put together deals since, as an unnamed league source said, "the entire league knows he's trying to move players."

The New York Post reports that the rocky tenure of Stephon Marbury on the New York Knicks roster may draw to a close very soon.
Knicks president Donnie Walsh told the Post he will sit down with Marbury either Monday or Tuesday of this week, and hopes to reach a resolution before the Knicks-Bobcats game on Wednesday. Walsh reportedly wanted the sitdown with Marbury before deciding whether to waive him or negotiate a contract buyout.
The story went on to state that unless Walsh talks Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni into giving Marbury one more chance, Marbury will be gone in short order, at which time the Knicks may attempt to re-sign the recently waived Patrick Ewing Jr.
