According to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports that the Mets believe they can still sign Dickey to a contract extensions like the one they gave to Oliver Perez. But he also writes they are still having trade talks but nothing is imminent. However, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post the Mets are looking to acquire a young bat in return for Dickey.
Sherman of the Post also is reporting the Mets are no longer looking to trade Ike Davis. There were talks of moving Lucas Duda to first base and moving Ike. My opinion on this is that the Mets brass need to pick a direction for this franchise. If they choose to rebuild it may be beneficial to move the ace knuckleballer for a young bat or even prospects. With that being said any plan of action should include a young dynamic power bat like Ike Davis and it is troubling to me that they were ever considering moving Davis in favor of Duda!
