After the Boston Celtics traded Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Brooklyn Nets, Carmelo Anthony told friends that he expected the New York Knicks to pursue a trade for Rajon Rondo.

Anthony believes Rondo would be a great fit for the Knicks.

The Knicks subsequently re-signed J.R. Smith and Pablo Prigioni, while also acquiring Andrea Bargnani in a trade with the Toronto Raptors.

The Knicks almost certainly do not have enough assets to acquire Rondo in a trade with the Celtics.
