While a new trade involving Calderon may happen, he's is not going to push for it, says agent Mark Bartelstein. "Jose is the ultimate professional and he's never going to demand to be traded," Bartelstein told HoopsHype. "He's disappointed by the way things are going, but he's going to try to make it right. We're aware the Knicks are in a state of transition and a trade is a realistic possibility because many teams are interested in Jose, but if a move happens it's never going to be because we're requesting it."

"They really rolled out the red carpet and let him know how bad they wanted him, and they obviously put together a terrific offer," Bartelstein said. Salt Lake Tribune

Unlike Mills, Grunwald had plenty of experience as a general manager when he took on that job for the Knicks in 2011. He acquired Tyson Chandler, toed the company line by generally avoiding interaction with reporters and coped with an onerous payroll (see: Amar’e Stoudemire) by surrounding Anthony with effective role players. “Well, I’m a big fan of Glen,” said Mark Bartelstein, a prominent agent. “I thought he did a good job, so I’m surprised from that standpoint.” New York Times
