BASKETBALL: Wheelin' and Dealin'

If you missed it, just heard on WFAN that the Knicks completed a trade today:

New York Knickerbockers President, Basketball Operations Isiah Thomas announced today that restricted free agent guard Jamal Crawford has been acquired in a sign-and-trade deal, with the addition of forward Jerome Williams, from the Chicago Bulls in exchange for forward Othella Harrington, guard Frank Williams, and centers Dikembe Mutombo and Cezary Trybanski.

I will not expose the current state of my basketball ignorance by attempting to analyze this, except to note that the facts that (1) the Knicks are getting thinner and thinner in the middle and (2) Crawford's career shooting percentage of .397 does not bode well for a change in offensive philosophy away from "move slowly and miss a lot of shots".
