The Knicks continue beating the bushes for a big man and have placed Toronto’s young 7-2 French center Alexis Ajinca among their targets. Ajinca — who began last season with Dallas, even starting two games — is strictly a reserve and still needs to work on his body with his skinny build. But if Toronto passes, the Knicks could take a flyer on Ajinca with a one-year deal for a minimum-range salary. New York Post

The Knicks’ interest in Ajinca appears to have given them pause to offering their second-rounder Jerome Jordan a contract. Jordan, a low-post center unlike Ajinca, is in Slovenia but wants a trade if he is not invited to training camp Friday and offered a deal. New York Post

The Mavericks expect Peja Stojakovic to sign with them today after he clears waivers. Before that can happen, the NBA must sign off on the trade of Alexis Ajinca to Toronto. Despite some teams asking for the league to check out possible improprieties between the Mavericks and Raptors on the trade, the deal is expected to be approved today. If it isn’t, the Mavericks may just waive a player – probably Sasha Pavlovic or Ajinca – to make room for Stojakovic. Multiple sources said Stojakovic arrived in Dallas on Sunday. The Mavericks are hopeful he can take part in today's scheduled practice. Dallas Morning News
