07:31 AM ET 02.20 | When the trade deadline passes, Amar'e Stoudemire expects to be in New York. [Stoudemire], who likely will be the focus of trade talk at next year's deadline, if not this summer when he officially has a monstrous expiring contract, said he doesn't expect any trades. "I would be surprised," Stoudemire said. "I'm looking forward for nothing to happen. [Team owner James] Dolan mentioned that earlier in the year. This is what we're going to go with. I believe in him." Dolan's assurance that nothing would change with the team came the day after Christmas, but things have grown worse since with the Knicks 3 ?? games out of the playoffs. Stoudemire decided to sit out Wednesday's game to rest his knees as the club is playing a stretch of four games in five nights.

They have only 2 players they can trade to make the team better and that's Melo and Hardaway. And why do they say big, expiring contracts are great when it doesn't do anything for the other team anymore? Unless the other team is willing to get rid of another unwanted long term contract.

They're not happy w/ Felton.

They don't want Felton and his contract is costing them much more in luxury taxes. His 4million is probably costing them twice as much in luxury taxes. So a cap move is much bigger than it looks.

Another wasted trade deadline 4 the Knicks. No draft picks until 2018?!?! That's unbelievable. Dolan let Isaiah run this team into the ground 10 years ago & still can't shake it off. Then walsh fixes the mess then Dolan axes him?!? That's y I rock Knicks gear from the 70s,80s&90s cuz I can't take the new millennium management. Team has never been the same since dolan traded ewing & refused 2 let him retire a Knick. Hopefully my daughter will c a championship Knicks team!!!

They'd better put Danny Granger on suicide watch. Going from the penthouse to the outhouse.

No team wants to trade with the Knicks. The only thing that the Knicks can offer are bad players on bad contracts.

Any general manager that trades for the Knicks trash should be fired on the spot.
