ESPN’s Ian Begley reported on the Knicks’ wish list heading into the draft and it included the potential to trade for Ricky Rubio, as well as the want for another draft pick and guards such as Frank Ntilikina, Dennis Smith and Malik Monk.
Begley adds that the Knicks are talking with Portland — as is the rest of the league — and that (shocker) they want Moe Harkless, who will be the Blazers asset that teams want the most during these talks. Another nugget in this article was interest in Derrick Rose by Minnesota, and that’s really the crux of this for the Knicks. Rose is not a capable starter in this league anymore and they are probably getting out of that business anyways.
