The New York Knicks are set to acquire forward Andrea Bargnani from the Toronto Raptors, according to numerous reports.
Forwards Marcus Camby and Steve Novak will be going back the other way to Toronto as well as New York’s first-round draft pick in 2016 and two future second-round picks. The deal has been agreed upon by the two teams and is expected to be made official Sunday night.
The Knicks were 20-1 at the LVH SuperBook to win the 2013-14 NBA Championship prior to the deal and the Raptors were listed as 100-1 long shots.
Online sportsbooks UWin and Bet365 currently have the Knicks at 25-1 in their NBA futures.
Bargnani, who was the first overall pick in the 2006 NBA Draft, has two years and $22 million left on his current contract.
The 27-year-old has averaged 15 points and nearly five rebounds a game for his career.
