If they landed Nash via a sign-and-trade with Phoenix, the Knicks would not bepart with point guard Iman Shumpert, who the Suns liked in last year's draft. New York is willing to part with a package that features Landry Fields, Toney Douglas, $3 million and the non-guaranteed salaries of Dan Gadzuric and Jerome Jordan. Fields is a restricted free agent who could be signed to a deal while Douglas' contract could be seen as an expiring contract whose salary is more than covered by the cash component. The Suns could waive Gadzuric and Jordan at no cost. Arizona Republic

Another 7-footer is on the way. Jerome Jordan, a 2010 second-round pick, was involved in contract negotiations yesterday to bring him to the Knicks, according to his agent, Todd Ramasar. Last night, Jordan hopped on a plane from Europe bound for New York. Jordan spent the lockout playing in Slovenia but signed an opt-out clause for when the lockout ended. There was also a small buyout in the Slovenia deal. It appears Jordan can’t sign a pact until all the other moves are in place, the same boat Mike Bibby finds himself in. “We like Jerome, who’s getting experience in Europe,’’ Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni said. “If he does [sign], it’s another piece you’re trying to develop. It’s not someone I can say, ‘We can plug him in right here.’ ’’ New York Post

Though the Knicks drafted Kentucky 6-foot-9 center Josh Harrellson, sources indicated they probably will get a look at their 2010 second-rounder, 7-footer Jerome Jordan, who is playing in Slovenia with an opt-out clause. The agent for Jordan, Todd Ramasar, told The Post Sunday he would demand a trade if Jordan isn’t invited to camp. New York Post

The agent for rookie center Jerome Jordan said he would request a trade if the Knicks decide not to sign him or bring him to training camp, which begins Dec. 9. With the lockout soon to be officially over, perhaps in a week, Knicks brass will game plan today regarding training-camp invitees and free agency, and one issue that will arise is what to do with the 7-footer who’s playing in Slovenia and has an opt-out clause in his contract there.
