Prior to the start of the NBA season, the Knicks were among the reported preferred destinations for guard Jimmy Butler -- who wanted out of Minnesota.
Butler, 29, was finally traded on Nov. 12 to the Philadelphia 76ers and will take the court against the Knicks for the first time as a Sixer on Wednesday.
Yet, the four-time All-Star apparently has forgotten he ever wanted to play for the Knicks.
Per Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, Butler dodged a question on Tuesday about if the Knicks were among the teams he preferred to join.
"I don't know," he said. "And to tell you the truth, I don't talk about the trade because I'm here, I'm loving it here man and all of that is in the past so I'm leaving it just there."
Knicks president Steve Mills previously said he did not want to part ways with any draft picks in a trade -- indicating he likely was not going to pursue Butler anyway via trade.
The Knicks will likely focus on pursuing Kevin Durant in free agency next summer while the Sixers intend to lock up Butler to a five-year deal.
