Chicago Tribune - Sources that spoke with Sam Smith of the Chicago Tribune, say Jermaine O'Neal already has told the Pacers he wants to be traded to the Knicks and former Pacers coach and close friend Isiah Thomas.
The Knicks have a lot of assets on there team, and I know it will be hard for them to trade him because he's such a great player, but if they can get a couple of young players for him and maybe a 1st rounder then I think the Pacers will pull the trigger. The Knicks are missing a big time player like him to go over the hump so if he's interested Thomas will do all he can do get him.
Looks like Jermaine denied the report and isn't gonna ask for a trade. That has everything to do with his interest in the well over $20 M per year he's going to get with the Pacers and nothing to do with wanting to win.
