More and more names have begun to swirl in rumors as the February 24 NBA trade deadline draws closer. Some teams are attempting to add pieces for a playoff run, while others are simply trying to shed salary.
Obviously the most prominent name that could be on the move is Carmelo Anthony. Reports have run rampant that he is on his way to the Knicks.
However, the Houston Rockets have their own disgruntled player that is allegedly on the market. Aaron Brooks, the 2010 NBA Most Improved Player, has had his own trade rumors that may result in him ending up in the Big Apple.
Although Brooks has slightly regressed this season, he is still a valuable asset who could certainly help in the Knicks' playoff run. That being said, currently the New York front office still, with good reason, has their eyes set on Anthony.
Here are five reasons that the Knicks need to give some serious thought to finishing a deal that would bring Aaron Brooks to New York.
