Knicks accept being bad, resist Eric Bledsoe deal " for now

"That," the scout said after having witnessed the Knicks get drubbed by the Celtics in Boston this week, "would be a terrible idea."

The idea in question would be an earnest pursuit of Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe, which would be a very Knicks-ish trade to make, historically speaking. Bledsoe checks all the boxes that have defined Knicks trade targets in the last 15 years or so.

The track record suggests Bledsoe is a dream player for owner James Dolan. Think about it:

" He is a third-tier star who can masquerade as a No. 1 option. That makes him a classic Knicks acquisition. At his best, Bledsoe is a tough, dynamic scorer who is strong with the ball. But he has been wildly inconsistent as a perimeter shooter and is not a particularly good playmaker. He is certainly not a guy who can drag a team like the Knicks into the playoffs, not even in the East.

" He has long had the potential to be a very good defender at his position, but has displayed very little interest in actually becoming a good defender. Now in his eighth season, at nearly 28 years old, its hard to imagine Bledsoe coming to New York and deciding he wants to be the second coming of Gary Payton.

" He cant stay healthy. In four seasons before this one, Bledsoe has had one healthy year and has missed one-third of his games. He does not have a meniscus in his right knee " it was torn to the point of removal in 2014 " and has a partial meniscus in his left knee.
