GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The Knicks are not ruling out additional trades in the wake of the Willy Hernangomez deal as the NBA trade deadline approaches on Thursday at 3 p.m.
Center Kyle O'Quinn and wing Courtney Lee are the two most prominently mentioned names after Hernangomez. The 23-year-old center was traded Thursday to Charlotte for two second-round picks and forward Johnny O'Bryant one day after his best friend, Kristaps Porzingis, went down for the season with an ACL tear. O'Bryant will be waived.
"I don't want to project any deals, what may or may not come out but whatever we decide to do it will definitely be well thought out," Knicks GM Scott Perry said Thursday. "It will be part of the plan that we want to follow and be disciplined to and so if that involves acquiring a pick or another player and we feels that's going to help us, we would do that."
