There is always another side to a trade. For the four former Knicks - Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler and Timofey Mozgov - it came in the shadows of the elation and expectations of the Knicks' acquisition of Carmelo Anthony, and also at their expense.

Felton and Chandler's final public act as Knicks was ducking reporters and leaving through a side door at Monday's practice. Mozgov and Gallinari addressed reporters, but the 3-team, 13-player deal had yet to be agreed upon.

The four players had stoked interest in the Knicks in different ways. Each is 26 or younger.
