Ledo went to the D-League and impressed at least one NBA team.
Now, New York and Dallas have completed a de facto Stoudemire-for-Ledo trade.
Ledo was highly touted coming out of high school, spent an ineligible season at Providence and then became a second-round pick. He has played just 44 NBA minutes, though.
Is Ledo a diamond in the rough? I don’t think so, but it’s certainly possible.
The tanking Knicks are wise to try finding out. Maybe Ledo reveals himself as someone who can help in future seasons. If not, he’ll help improve New York’s draft position.
