This morning’s draft rumblings from the beat:
- Alan Hahn is reporting this morning that the Knicks have indeed spoken to the Wizards…but not about Wilson Chandler. The teams’ discussions have centered around Larry Hughes and Jared Jeffries. A trade of Hughes and Jeffries for Mike James, Etan Thomas and DeShawn Stevenson works under the cap. Think if Donnie threw in $3 million we could have the 5th pick? Never hurts to ask.
- Star-Vermin tells us that the Knicks would have interest in Rubio if he slid all the way down to 8th. Earth-shattering stuff. POST EXCLUSIVE?
