When the Knicks went out and traded for Andrea Bargnani it was a head-scratcher for plenty of New York fans.

Bargnani has a reputation of being a frail bust during his time in Toronto a former number one overall draft pick who clung to the figurative neck of the Raptors franchise like an albatross for the past seven seasons.

But at least one prominent member of the Knicks has a level of excitement about the deal and believes that the trade for Bargnani will be a positive one for the New York franchise.
