New York Times is looking for a new team for its Knicks writer

Tuesday January 6th, 2015

The New York Times posted an unconventional wanted ad in its sports section today, searching for a better basketball team for beat writer Scott Cacciola to cover.

The plea says that the 5-32 Knicks would struggle to compete against a D-League team following Monday night's trade of J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert, and asks for suggestions of better teams at any level that Cacciola could spend time on.
