According to multiple rival executives, getting a team to absorb (Knicks Andrea) Bargnani’s contract would likely cost at least two first-round picks. Given that the Knicks’ 2016 pick already goes to Denver or Toronto (from the Anthony and Bargnani trades), Jackson would likely have to part with promising shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. to obtain another one. Knowing the pressure is on Jackson to make a deal to appease Anthony, rival teams might ask for more — such as Iman Shumpert, one of the executives said.
