The Knicks and Raptors discussed a trade of Anthony Carter for Jeremy Lin.
New York was interested in bringing back Carter to bring stability to the point guard position.
“We knew one thing about him after bringing (Lin) in,” said Bryan Colangelo. “We knew he was one tough kid.
“He took one of the hardest hits I’ve ever seen on a court and one of the toughest falls. He got hit from behind, crashed to the floor, eventually got up. We didn’t think he’d get up, to be honest. And he shook it off and continued the workout.
“We were extremely impressed by that.”
