The proposed trade was a response to Robinson’s tweet on Monday. «Keep fighting the boys we live in, we hear about the next one,» Robinson wrote with a praying hands emoji after the Knicks’ 140-134 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

As it stands, the Spurs have enough salary-cap space to accept Robinson’s contract. San Antonio is in the midst of a rebuild, and with Robinson only 24 years old, he could be a key part of the team’s future.
But for now, Robinson remains in New York and is ready to help the Knicks in the playoffs.
