Further reports from Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) indicate the Knicks have traded Outlaw to the for and a future second-rounder from the Knicks as well as rights to swap another future second-rounder.
Additional movitvation for Knicks to do Travis Outlaw deal: They just shaved nearly $4.7 million off their luxury-tax bill with this trade— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) October 27, 2014
Outlaw, drafted out of Starkville High School in Mississippi by the Portland Trail Blazers in the 2003 draft, played with the Blazers until 2010 when he was traded to the LA (along with Steve Blake) for Marcus Camby. He later spent time with New Jersey, Sacramento and then New York. SBNation is showing that the 76ers' website might be having trouble deciding who is on their team.
Outlaw's best season was with the '07 - '08 Blazers when he played in all 82 games and averaged 13.3 ppg and had 4.6 rpg in 26 mpg.
The jury's still out on whether he'll stay with Philadelphia.
