Members of the New York Knicks’ front office ran into a fundamental problem when they reached out to the Atlanta Hawks to gauge the club’s interest in trading Jeff Teague last month. “They just didn’t have the pieces to make it happen,” one league source familiar with the dynamic said.
That won’t stop the Knicks from trying. New York still hopes to pry Teague from Atlanta at some point before Thursday’s trade deadline, according to a report by ESPN’s Marc Stein and Brian Windhorst.
