Despite lots of chatter that they could make a move at today’s NBA trade deadline, the Knicks stood pat, and didn’t improve upon a roster that’s just 21-33. On the other hand, they maintained cap space for 2015 and didn’t make any embarrassing, destructive trades, which is always a possibility in Jim Dolan’s Madison Square Garden. So there’s that, at least.
