The New York Knicks are acquiring Josh Hart from the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for Cam Reddish, other players and picks… while the news stuns Hart’s college teammate Jalen Brunson
Just hours before the NBA trade deadline, the New York Knicks made a big move to take on Portland Trail Blazers swingman Josh Hart.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Hart is moving to the Knicks in exchange for a protected first-round pick from 2023 and small forward cam Reddish.
Guards Ryan Acidiacono and Svi Mykhailiuk – who have both played fewer than 15 games this season – were also part of the deal.
Woj’s report also states that the Trail Blazers would receive four future second-round picks if the first-round pick is not submitted this year.
The Maryland native Hart joins the Knicks after averaging 9.5 points and 8.2 rebounds in Portland.

WARNING: BAD LANGUAGE
Hart played his college basketball at Villanova — where he was a teammate of Knicks guard Jalen Brunson.
Brunson was in Villanova on Wednesday night – where his jersey was retired at the Wildcats’ home, the Finneran Pavilion.
A fan came to Brunson after the ceremony took place with the news that Hart would be joining him in New York.
Brunson’s reaction was caught on camera – where he expressed shock, surprise and delight.
Brunson and Hart were both part of the 2016 Villanova national championship team — the second basketball title for the Wildcats in school history.
