The Knicks recently attempted to make a trade for Minnesota Timberwolves star Kevin Love, offering forward Amar'e Stoudemire and his enormous expiring contract, second-year guard Tim Hardaway, Jr. and swingman Iman Shumpert, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. But the longshot offer, made in the past week, was declined and never stood much of a chance, particularly since the Timberwolves could potentially strike a richer deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers involving No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins. The Chicago Bulls, who have a bevy of intriguing assets to trade, have reportedly had conversations with Minnesota about Love in recent weeks since failing to sign Knicks star Carmelo Anthony in free agency.

The Knicks had a conversation with Philadelphia about two weeks ago regarding Amar'e Stoudemire, league sources said, but those talks never gained any traction. The Sixers and Jazz are among the teams with enough salary cap space to absorb a massive contract in return for promising players or draft picks, but Stoudemire's history of knee trouble makes his $23.4 million expiring contract especially risky.

Speaking on First Take, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith said the Knicks and Sixers have had conversations about a deal that would send Amare Stoudemire and Iman Shumpert to the Philadelphia. Although what the Sixers would send back isn't clear, it likely wouldn't be much more than a draft pick or non-guaranteed contract player, as the Knicks would do the deal to clear cap space.

Amare Stoudemire on conversations with free agent Carmelo Anthony: I've talked with him but we haven't talked about anything like that. Just small talk you know, about family and friends, that's about it really. That type of decision is meant for him to make with his familiy and with his core group of friends. You want him back in New York to kind of continue what he started here. So we'll give him full support on that. HoopsHype
