What is your opinion about Andrea Bargnani? He has been criticized very hard, especially from Marc Berman of the Post. Howard Beck: Bargnani can't seem to stay healthy. But even when he's on the court, he's just not a very good NBA player. At his best, Bargnani is a very good shooter. But he's not particularly good at anything else -- passing, driving posting up or playing defense. He also doesn't seem to have much passion for the game. I will be curious to see if any NBA teams show interest in him this summer. I won't be surprised if he returns to Europe. Sportando

Calderon, meanwhile, has no shortage of admirers around the league despite his struggles this season, averaging a mere 9.3 points per game on 40.8-percent shooting. But the two years left on his contract after this season -- worth $15.1 million -- could make it difficult to move the 33-year-old Spaniard, ‎who arrived in New York in late June as the Knicks' foremost return in the Tyson Chandler deal with Dallas. Sources say Bargnani, meanwhile, is a candidate to be waived next month if New York can't find a deal for the former No. 1 overall pick and his $11.5 million expiring contract before the Feb. 19 deadline for deals.

Bargnani suffered another injury to his right ankle and had to leave just 1:47 into the first quarter of Friday’s game. It was only his second game back from a right calf injury after missing the first 33 games with hamstring and calf issues. Fisher said it was hard to read Bargnani to see how he was dealing with his latest setback. “He’s mentally tougher than I think sometimes he gets credit for — he holds a lot of stuff in,” Fisher said. “I don’t think we can necessarily get a read on how he’s feeling. I would imagine he’s frustrated. He wants to be able to get out on the court. This is an important year for him in terms of his basketball future,” Fisher said, a reference to Bargnani being in the final year of his contract. New York Daily News
