Delonte West was acquired from Cleveland with Brooklyn's own Sebastian Telfair on July 26, in a trade that send point guard Ramon Sessions and center Ryan Hollins to the Cavaliers.

The Knicks are short in experience at the guard position. Toney Douglas and Andy Rautins just was drafted in 2010 Draft. Raymond Felton is a just average point guard. Teaming Felton with West would bring a lot of excitement to the Knicks backcourt.

Amar'e Stoudemire would benefit from this transaction. His game would move to another level. Delonte West has a attack the rim kind of game. The move would make the Knicks a better team, just as long West stay away from the weapons issues.
