Knicks Rumors: 5 Teams New York Could Bait with Toney Douglas

Toney Douglas was once the Knicks starting point guard. Now he's buried on the bench.

No player on the Knicks has seen his role and minutes change as dramatically as Toney Douglas has this season. 

When the season began, he was the starting point guard for the Knicks. First his minutes were cut into by rookie Iman Shumpert. Then Mike Bibby pilfered some of his floor space. Eventually Douglas' playing time was buried in the avalanche of Lin-Sanity and the return of veteran Baron Davis. 

These days Douglas spends nearly the entire game on the bench. He's not an All Star in waiting, but he's a player who could prove valuable to teams that don't feature numerous point guards on their roster. In addition, the Knicks' offensive system is one that places a fair amount of responsibilities on the point guard. In a more simplistic offensive system Douglas could play a more productive role. 

With that in mind the Knicks are now trying to ship Douglas off to another team as the clock ticks down to the March 15th trade deadline.

Where might the Knicks find a receptive trading partner?
