Deals between wayward franchises are always interesting because of the tantalizing prospect that one of them might actually win a trade. As a result, Thursday's sign-and-trade deal between the Knicks and Warriors raised hopes in both sides. The terms sent David Lee to Golden State on a six-year, $80 million contract, with the Knicks getting back Anthony Randolph, Ronny Turiaf, Kelenna Azubuike and a 2011 second-round pick.
