Carmelo Anthony and Jeremy Lin have not meshed well together since his return from injury.
Could the New York Knicks make the biggest trade deadline deal two years in a row?
Last season, the Knicks completed a blockbuster deal for star forward Carmelo Anthony with the hope that Anthony would change the fortunes of the long-suffering New York Knicks and their rabid fan base.
Sadly, the Knicks fortunes haven't changed all that much this season.
Currently mired in a five game losing streak and sporting an 18-23 record, the Knicks are a team with a lot of pieces that don't seem to fit together.
The solution to that problem may or may not be a massive trade—that's what it would take for New York to acquire Dwight Howard.
The Knicks would most likely have to part with some serious pieces such as Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler, and even that might not be enough for the Magic.
That's before the team even knows for certain that Howard will stay in New York once this season concludes.
The struggling Knicks may need to shake things up, but after spending so much to acquire Carmelo last season, it seems shortsighted to ship him out of town after only one year on the team.
The Knicks might make some drastic moves this week, but a deal for Dwight Howard seems like a bit of a stretch.
