Another Artest-Knicks Rumor

From Chris Sheridan's column on stars possibly on the move:

[Ron Artest]'d be wearing a Knicks uniform by now if Isiah Thomas had been willing to trade Nate Robinson and Renaldo Balkman ...

Balkman's my second favorite Knick, a Gerald Wallace clone (though with fewer offensive instincts, if you can believe it). And Nate Robinson's basically Quincy Douby - six inches + hops + crystal meth, someone I don't think will ever be a legitimate NBA starter.

If the deal would assure Douby's future role as a shooting guard and facilitate an attempt to go big on a +Beno free agent point guard (cough, Jose Calderon, cough)... then we just might have a deal.
