NEW YORK -- Knicks president Donnie Walsh says he will probably begin discussions with Nate Robinson's agent Monday about a request to trade the benched guard.
That's assuming Robinson really wants to be dealt.
Robinson said Sunday his preference is to stay with the Knicks, the day after his agent told Walsh he would like to look into getting his client out of New York.
The request came after Robinson was benched for eight straight games by coach Mike D'Antoni. Robinson says he is still ready to play for the Knicks, but added, "I haven't got that privilege to play the way that I like to play."
