MILWAUKEE (AP) -The New York Knicks were expected to announce a trade for Golden State Warriors forward Al Harrington on Friday.
Media reports had the Knicks sending guard Jamal Crawford to Golden State, though it was unclear if he was the only player.
A trade was expected to be announced later Friday, according to a person with knowledge of the deal who spoke on condition of anonymity because it hadn't been completed.
Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said on Friday that his roster was likely to change before the Knicks' game against the Bucks on Friday night, acknowledging reports that Knicks president Donnie Walsh was working on several trades.
``Let's wait until it happens - if it happens,'' D'Antoni said before the morning shootaround. ``Obviously, that would be tampering if I said something.''
D'Antoni said he expected Walsh to make moves to reshape the team in hopes of clearing salary cap space before the summer of 2010, and this might be the first.
uring the year, because I think Donnie has got his plan, and he will execute it as he sees fit,'' D'Antoni said. ``And we'll go forward. Now is this the first step? I don't know for sure.''
Crawford said he first heard about the potential deal Thursday night and now considers it ``more likely'' than not that the trade will happen. But he wasn't letting it bother him.
``When I was younger, when I first got in the league and you hear trade rumors, (I was) nervous then,'' Crawford said. ``But now? No. Because you can't worry about stuff you can't control.''
D'Antoni acknowledged that a trade could dramatically shorten his bench for Friday's game and temporarily disrupt the team's focus.
``I think this is where you have to be professional,'' D'Antoni said. ``This is where it's tough, and it's a hard part of the business.''
