In the midst of the Celtics trading Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Brooklyn Nets, Marc Berman of The New York Post is reporting that a certain Knicks player was hoping Rajon Rondo would be in play as well.

Berman is reporting that Carmelo Anthony told friends and associates that he thought the Knicks would target Rondo after trading off their other two huge pieces.

Anthony told friends after the Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce trade to the Nets, he figured the Knicks would make a play for point guard for Rajon Rondo. Anthony believes Rondo would be the perfect piece and would be super motivated in New York to attempt to knock off Garnett and Pierce.

Instead, the Knicks will return two of their three primary free agents in J.R. Smith, who flopped in the playoffs, and Pablo Prigioni. They didn’t even have enough money in this new CBA to keep their young sniper, Chris Copeland. And they may not have enough to woo aging Elton Brand. Or the cash to get a commitment from competent but hardly scintillating backup point guard Sebastian Telfair. Another Knicks target, point guard Will Bynum, agreed to terms last night to remain in Detroit.

The Knicks have no assets to offer Boston for Rondo, and with the 2014 free agency conversation becoming a hot topic, the Knicks window for a championship is open for one season and one season only.
