Rodney Carney knows New York City pretty well. The Tigers played eight games in the Big Apple during Carney's four-year career, and though his Tiger days are through, his trips to New York are not.
Eyewitness Sports (Fox affiliate in Memphis) has learned that the Indianapolis native has been invited to New York, NY to shake hands with NBA commissioner David Stern when his name is announced the night of the draft.
A published report has the Phoenix Suns looking to trade up to get Carney. The Suns currently have the 21st and 27th picks but would like to trade both to get a pick in the teens where they hope they can land the athletic Carney.
