The New York Knicks have been looking to acquire another point guard and possibly trade away Jose Calderon, according to multiple ESPN reports.
New York has still maintained interest in trading for Atlanta's Jeff Teague, according to Ian Begley. The Knicks have also reached out to Atlanta about a possible deal for point guard Dennis Schroder and have been monitoring Pistons guard Brandon Jennings ahead of Thursday's NBA trade deadline, according to Begley.
For the Knicks to acquire another point guard, they would, in turn, try to trade Calderon, according to Marc Stein and Brian Windhorst. Calderon, 34, has averaged 7.5 points and 4.1 assists for the Knicks this year and is owed $7.7 million next season.
To get other teams interested in him, the Knicks have also been rumored to include the young Kyle O'Quinn in a potential deal, according to Stein and Windhorst.
The Knicks had been among teams interested in Teague last month, and NBA analyst Charles Barkley said Teague would turn the Knicks, who currently sit five games back of the No. 8 spot in the Eastern Conference, into a lock for the playoffs.
However, the Knicks are unlikely to acquire Teague, who has averaged 15.1 points and 5.5 assists per game, because of a lack of resources and an unwillingness to trade away draft picks, according to reports.
