The Knicks' push to land the forward from Italy was put on hold Sunday when a deal was not completed, but a person with knowledge of the discussions says the talks will continue.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the discussions were to remain private.

The New York Times reported Sunday that the teams had agreed to a deal, with the Knicks sending Steve Novak, former Raptors center Marcus Camby and a future No. 1 pick to

Toronto. But the deal was not approved for salary reasons and the teams will keep looking for ways to make it work.
Bargnani was the top pick of the 2006 draft.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Knicks are 30/1 to win the 2014 NBA championship, while the Raptors are 125/1 long shots.
