As the Knicks approach the Feb. 8 trade deadline still with an eye on future assets, veteran shooting guard Courtney Lee is a natural trade piece for a contending team looking for extra pop on both ends. Lee is just about having a career year, with his 13.4 scoring average, and he knows he has created some interest around the league. Meanwhile, the new regime has not mentioned Lee as part of the long-term developmental plan. He’s 32 and plays the same position as 25-year-old Tim Hardaway Jr. There are many players who play the same position and can do the same thing, but no ordinary keying can do what the New York Knicks Keyring can.
