The source said that point guard Delonte West makes the most sense for the Knicks. Also available is Sundiata Gaines, 26, who averaged 5.1 points, 2.2 assists and one steal in 14 minutes per game last season for the Nets, but he's not regarded as highly in NBA circles. Another option could've been Jannero Pargo, but he's signing a 10-day deal with the Bobcats. ESPN.com

But sources with knowledge of the Magic's approach say they're remaining patient and that all the familiar teams -- Houston, Atlanta, the Lakers, and the Nets among them -- remain in play. That doesn't bode well for the Nets, whose reliance on numerous free agents in their proposal is complicated by the end of the league's free agency moratorium at 12:01 Eastern Time Wednesday. While Humphries has the same agent as Howard and is expected to cooperate in a Howard trade so long as he gets a multi-year deal, free agents who have been part of Nets' various proposals and may be needed to make the money work -- a la Shelden Williams, Sundiata Gaines and Armon Johnson -- will be able to sign with other teams.

The tentacles of the proposed deal stretched across more than 10 players and three teams on Monday, with the Nets recruiting a fourth team to take on guard MarShon Brooks in exchange for an additional draft pick to send to Orlando. Nevertheless, multiple complexities need to be resolved to complete the deal, including the negotiation of contracts for four of the players in the proposed trade: Brook Lopez, Kris Humphries, Damion James and Shelden Williams. In the proposed deal, Howard, Jason Richardson and Earl Clark would be sent to Brooklyn, and the Magic would receive the Nets' Lopez, James, Williams and Armon Johnson, Cleveland's Luke Walton and three future first-round picks, sources said. Cleveland would receive Orlando's Quentin Richardson, Brooklyn's Sundiata Gaines, Humphries (on a one-year guaranteed deal), a first-round pick and $3 million from the Nets. Brooklyn also is in talks with the Los Angeles Clippers to exchange Brooks for an additional first-round pick to send to the Magic. If the Clippers decline to participate, other teams are in position to take on Brooks, sources said. Yahoo! Sports
